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).

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!

It’s A Girl’s World!
