Stuff I Buy

Stuff I buy from charity shops, car boot sales, secondhand, new, find or am given! A lot of what I buy will eventually make it into my online shop, but some is for keeps!

Mighty Mutant Valley Man

Action figures finds from September and the beginning of October include Action Man, Ben 10, BeyBlades, Dino Valley, Gormiti, Matt Hatter Chronicles, Mighty Max, Power Rangers, Primeval, Skylanders, Spider-Man, Star Wars, Superman, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and WWE.

Popple Turbo Funk

I found lots of super toys during August, some for me and lots for resale. So many in fact, that I couldn’t fit them all on the table to take a group shot! My favourite finds have to be the vintage plush Popples and Care Bears, and two Funko Pop: Fortnite figures.

DesignaFlat Strawberry

Finally, I found some dolls! My Monster High craving as been sated for a short while. Other finds from July include Club Chic, DesignaFriend, Disney Princess, Flat Eric, Incredibles, Monster High, Monsters Inc, My Little Pony, My Melody, Paddington Bear, Shopkins, Simpsons, Skylanders, Snoopy, Star Wars, Strawberry Shortcake and Trolls.

Extreme Dino Machine

The week before lockdown began I came across two bundles of dinosaur toys: Jurassic Park: The Lost World and Extreme Dinosaurs. Obviously I worked out the former, being as it was in the box, but had never come across the later before. I’m glad I bought both bundles as they were a real bargain! These were the last things I bought before the shops closed just a few days later.

Suzy’s Chocolate Mask

I had a good spot of luck in the last few days the charity shops were open before lockdown, and was presented with a freshly donated pile of well loved Ladybird and Janet and John books on stepping through the door of my local (the manager knows me too well)!
