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!
All kinds of books here from my January rummaging! A few are for resale, others are for my own collection of oddness. Knightmare was a great find, as was Mix ‘Em Up Monsters. I also found a few Ladybird Books, Beatrix Potter, Flower Fairies, Pink and Perky, Richard Scarry, Rupert The Bear and an old Thomas The Tank Engine from when it was still called “The Railway Series”.
The last two weeks have been very plentiful as regards to buying toys. So much so I am now at maximum capacity and really hope my shop begins to succeed before I am crushed under a pile of dollys! I also struck on an excellent idea, and one which I hope will set my toy sales apart from others – FREE PIN BADGES, designed especially to go with certain sales!
I came back with an unexpected pile of eighties goodies last Saturday, mostly all from the Salvation Army charity shop in Leigh On Sea. I found three Look In magazines from 1983, three TV annuals (Super Gran, Gordon T Gopher, and Fraggle Rock), a pack of Mr Men Snap cards, and a Bros 12″ single (I Owe You Nothing).
