Way back last year, well only October actually, I came across a large selection of Monster High dolls in my local charity shop (they had just been put out for display for Halloween). Not a doll I had come across before, I was intrigued and started to take a look at them. Instantly spotted by the sales assistant, she said jokingly “how would you like the lot, we can make you an deal?”. I am now obsessed!
I was more excited than I should have been whilst awaiting the arrival of this 1979 Girl’s World! This is the hair colouring version. The box is a bit beaten up but the head is in great condition and growing hair still works. Also included were several accessories.
I bought myself some more original Care Bears a couple of weeks ago from eBay after buying six others in June. Arriving in the post were four poseable Care Bears, four miniatures Care Bears and one poseable Wuzzle. Happy days!
I rarely buy second-hand toys, preferring the pot luck of charity shops, but a couple of weeks ago I went a bit mad a bought a My Pet Monster and a group of Care Bears from eBay. Monster turned up first, then last Monday these guys turned up at work!
Look who turned up in the post at work. It was only My Pet Monster “Rark”! I love his big bushy blue moustache.
My most recent charity shop/second-hand purchases include Mr Men, Worzel Gummidge, Culture Club and an Elvis Chatimals. Sounds like the makings of a good night out!
Yes, I actually bought this cookery book! Replete with hearts, romantic quotes, health tips, and knick-knacks galore, this is now one of my favourite recipe books which I don’t use, along with my Worzel Gummidge cookbook. Both classics.
A few weeks back I received these eagerly awaited beauties; two craft books by Ed & Stevie Baldwin featuring some of the most creepy 1980’s pantyhose craft creations you’ll ever see. It was possibly more a “thing” in the US, where pantyhose sculptures were to be found adorning tables at church fates and old peoples homes the country over. The English translation of “Tight Crafts” conjurers up images of playing sardines whilst crocheting.
