I found a few vintage items again over the past couple of weeks (including Barbie, Furskins, Snoopy & My Little Pony), as well as lots more to add to my shop. My favourite finds out of this lot are definitely the G1 MLP’s, closely followed by Zippy’s head!
Lots more toys to add to my collection, as well as my shop during October! I found heaps of little figures, lots of plushies and dolls, fast food toys and books. My favourite finds are the vintage Care Bear and Chatter Telephone, and a super Angelina Jolie Maleficent doll.
The last two weeks have been very plentiful as regards to buying toys. So much so I am now at maximum capacity and really hope my shop begins to succeed before I am crushed under a pile of dollys! I also struck on an excellent idea, and one which I hope will set my toy sales apart from others – FREE PIN BADGES, designed especially to go with certain sales!
I started off strong at the carboot on Sundays, with a big hoard of fast food toys from the 1990’s. I also found a few My Little Ponies (G2, G3 & G4), Barbie, Cabbage Patch Kids, Furby, Zelfs, Skeleton Warriors and Lalaloopsy.
I found several things over the course of this week in various charity shops including Inside Out, Lego Movie Happy Meal, Top Trumps Angel, TT Doctor Who and TT Cars, My Little Pony, Miles From Tomorrowland, Moshi Monsters, Crazy Bones, Zelf, Elsa, Monster High, Ever After High, Wacky Races, Meg & Mog, and Little Miss Tiny.
I found a mixture of things this week, including vintage plastic picnic items (Mr Men!), Teeny Tiny Tumbles Surprise, Polly Pocket, Monster High, a furry bunny bag, Black Books and two fruity t-shirts!
Half term week meant lots of pottering around and lots of charity shop finds. It’s a good job I am about to put up some more shelves as I’ve run out of room! I found Sweet Valley High, Lalaloopsy, Sweet Secrets, Furbys, Moshi Monsters, Glimmies, Ladybird and Brambly Hedge books, Puppy Surprise, Equestria Girls, Monster High, Ever After High & Mr Men.
A decent selection of finds from Monday and Tuesday’s charity shop rummages, including Moshi Monsters, My Little Pony, Mr Men, Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Star Wars!
A mooch around Rayleigh’s charity shops on Tuesday morning filled my pockets! I found a weird furry hat with teeth, Teletubbies, Mr Men, Digimon, Baby Bop, Barbie, Larry the Lamb, Meg & Mog, and Frasier!
I came back with an excellent selection of toys and books from the Lions charity shop last Saturday, including a full set of Sesame Street “On My Way” books, a Jack and Jill book from 1971, and various soft toys including a farting Grumples, a moaning Flufflings, a talking Hoobs, an accident prone Mr Men, a tiny Furby, and a baby Puppy Surprise!
A few little finds this week. Tuesday took me over to Rayleigh for my annual teeth scraping, where afterwards I rummaged through various charity shops little toy baskets and came away with a few cute items. Then Wednesday after work I purchased four books and three movies.
Mr Men books by Roger Hargreaves were and remain to this day one of my favourite series childhood books. Yet somehow I managed to miss the release of Mr Men stamps, which came out on 20th October 2016.
I came back with an unexpected pile of eighties goodies last Saturday, mostly all from the Salvation Army charity shop in Leigh On Sea. I found three Look In magazines from 1983, three TV annuals (Super Gran, Gordon T Gopher, and Fraggle Rock), a pack of Mr Men Snap cards, and a Bros 12″ single (I Owe You Nothing).
My most recent charity shop purchases include Mr Men, Worzel Gummidge, Culture Club and an Elvis Chatimals. Sounds like the makings of a good night out!
A good haul from Bath and Wells charity shops this weekend whilst visiting the folks! I found a G1 My Little Pony, Lalaloopsy, Mr Men, Hungry Caterpillar, Jackie, Trapdoor, Sesame Street, Lemony Snicket, and a couple of LP’s.
