Last Sunday’s carboot sale unearthed several (plastic) gems. My favourite find by far was an Austin Powers action figure (with hairy chest). Groovy baby! Along with Austin, I found several little figures (including My Little Pony, VIP Pets, Powerpuff Girls and Littlest Pet Shop), lots more fast food toys and several doll accessories.
I came home with sack full of toys from last weeks charity shop expedition, plus had a few carboot finds too. In fact, there were so many little toys I couldn’t fit them all on the table to photograph together! I found a few dolls (including Novia Stars and Mr T), lots of fast food toys, several different figures (including Fabuland and Littlest Pet Shop) and a few plushies (including another Boohbah hot water bottle cover). I also found a well read six pack of Paddington Bear books and four My Little Pony (forgot to add them into the group shot)!
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 found three excellent vintage items whilst charity shopping this week: the yellow Playboot by Matchbox with accessories, a Sky Dancers launcher and a Polly Pocket case. I also found a Cupcake Surprise (with hat!), five Hello Kitty figures, one Shopkins Shoppies, one Enchantimals, plush and mini Moshi Monsters, two McDonalds Furbys, a Lalaloopsy pet, a Littlest Pet Shop crab, Magiki Ladybirds and a set of keys (possibly Disney)!
I had eyed this Disney Tangled “Rapunzel” toddler doll a short while before buying her, but decided against her at the time as I thought she was a bit over priced for a doll with such a mess of quite literately tangled hair. Then when I went back into the charity shop a week later I found she had been reduced so bought her along with three modern Polly Pocket dolls, a Shopkins character and another couple of little unknown toys, then set to sorting out the birds nest on top of her head!
I started volunteering in my favourite charity shop on Monday morning (The Lions), and on my way into the children’s section my eyes were magnetically drawn to a small plush toy sitting on the shelf. It was a POPPLES! Through out the morning I also picked up a few G4 My Little Ponies, a Danger Mouse pin, another kitty purse, a Shopkins “Strawberry Kiss” Illumi-mate, a Miffy book and a Count Duckula book.
