I couldn’t resist buying a few of the “horror” movie buildable characters I came across on Temu when looking for Skeletor socks (as you do). There were lots to choose from, these being my favourites from the figures in stock.
The last couple of weeks has provided me with several weird and wonderful items, including several books, a sprinkling of LP’s and a handful of toys.
It’s been a long while since I’ve written a blog about the random items I find in charity shops. I buy so much these days for resale, that the things I buy for myself have become rather (and literally) lost in the pile. Today’s find offered the most excellent opportunity to start again, as everything I bought was for me. And what a random selection presented itself!
Action figures for resale include Big Hero 6, DC Comics & Marvel, Gormiti, Major Powers, Matchbox, Monster Wrestlers In My Pocket, Power Rangers, Roblox, Tomb Raider and Untamed.
Cute figure finds for resale include Animal Jam, Bananas, Barbie, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, Chubby Puppies, Crayola, Disney Princess, Fables, Fingerlings, Frozen, Hello Kitty, In The Night Garden, Lalaloopsy, Land of The Dragons, Littlest Pet Shop, M&Ms, Mr Chimney Pot, Pinypon, Polly Pocket, Postman Pat, Puppy In My Pocket, Ralph Breaks The Internet, Scooby Doo, Tangled, The Incredibles, Tiny Blessings, Tom & Jerry and Trolls.
Dolls for resale include Creatable World, Barbie, Disney Princess, What’s Her Face, DesignaFriend and Berenguer.
Plush toys for resale include Snow White & The Seven Dwarfs, Teletubbies, Pokemon, King Kong, Rainbocorn, Care Bears, Vampirina, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Rupert the Bear, Spiderman, Goofy, Postman Pat, Winnie the Pooh, Tweenies, Minnie Mouse, Build-a-Bear, Puppy Surprise, Pikmi Pops and Lady & The Tramp.
These are all the goodies I found I June which I am keeping for myself!
I had a spot of good luck when charity shopping at the beginning of June, and found a whole basket of freshly donated My Little Ponies! I bought the whole basket, naturally.
I found quite a few large size action figures earlier this month, including Power Rangers, Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.
I found lots of lovely little figures and playsets recently, included a couple of vintage 1990’s items (Play Kindergarten and Tiny Dreams).
Probably for the first time ever, all the dolls bought over the last couple of weeks will be resold. My best find was the 1970’s Sindy “Camping Scene”, which held extra delights inside too!
I found an interesting selection of plush toys and books recently, including some more Frizzys (which I love), three Raymond Briggs books and a vintage Star Wars sticker album. I’m rather taken by Bear In The Big Blue House, who “cha cha’s”, probably because it’s by Jim Henson.
I found quite a wide selection of figures, ranging from superheroes to a large pooping unicorn!
My first two weeks of dolly shopping proved very fruitful, with Our Generation, Barbie, Cupcake Surprise, Disney, a handful of Bratz and a bag of Monster High pets to name just a few.
I found a smattering of plush toys when the charity shops opened up again last month, including three vintage Teletubbies, a super soft Snoopy, Sesame Street, Care Bears, Ice Age and Street Fighter. I also found a vintage Where’s Wally? board game.
I was very generously given a carrier bag crammed full of action figures during lockdown earlier this year, and found some amazing toys within!
Before the Charity Shops shut up once again for Tier 4 Lockdown here, I found a lovely selection of dolls for resale including four vintage ARI dolls, Baby Born, three Barbie’s, Cabbage Patch Kids, DesignaFriend, four Disney Princess dolls, Lalaloopsy and Our Generation.
Last year I bought two vintage Picture Lions children’s books dated 1973 with no reprint date, were they first editions?
I found a nice selection of plush toys for resale (as well as a few for myself), including Bob The Builder, Charlie Bears, Crayola, Krypto The Superdog, Martinair Holland, Monsters Inc., Mr Men, Noddy, Paw Patrol, Star Wars, Toy Story, Teenie Beanies and Winnie The Pooh.
