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 came back with over 200 little items at my last carboot rummage, mostly in Moshi Monsters! I also found a few fast food toys, some other little figures (including Littlest Pet Shop, Puppy In My Pocket, Hello Kitty, Crazy Bones and Disney), a Cupcake Surprise doll (with hat!) and a super Magic Roundabout plush. It took an absolute age to wash this lot!
Another interesting bundle of toys from last week’s charity shopping. My favourite finds have to be the FurReal Friends “Torch, My Blazin’ Dragon” and Disney Toddlers doll. The PJ Masks talking figures are fun, and I found a whole lot of McDonald’s UglyDolls toys still in their boxes, which I really like. I also picked up some other fast food toys and a selection of little figures.
I found a ton of little bits and pieces whilst searching some charity shops the other side of “the big town” (Southend!) at the beginning of the month. I had so many little items in one shop the shop lady literally shovelled them into a One Direction shopping bag off the counter (I didn’t notice it was a 1D bag until I got home)! My favourite finds were the Power Rangers figure, Furby and Lizzie Borden Head Knockers.
I had some luck with vintage toys whilst out charity shopping this week (1980-90’s), with Girl’s World, an original Furby, a giant Sweetie Pups, Tasmanian Devil and Dennis the Menace. I also found a few more Animal Jams, PJ Masks car and figure, Paw Patrol, Spongebob Square Pants, Scooby Doo, Doctor Who, Zelfs, Despicable Me Minions, Ddung, Baby Bratz, Lalaloopsy, Pokemon, Winnie The Pooh, My Little Pony, Chubby Puppies, Pez, In The Night Garden, Peanuts and Dr Octopus from Spider-Man.
