I found quite a varied selection of dolls during January including Action Man, Baby Annabelle, Barbie, Betty Spaghetty, Bratz, Brave, Chatsters, Cocodels, Disney Princess, Frozen, LOL Surprise, Lots To Love, My Scene, Polly Pocket, Shimmer & Shine and Sofia The First. My favourite find has to be Beauty & The Beast “Adam/Ken”, who is far more beautiful with his mask on!
These are my dolly finds from the end of November. I’m keeping the Wonder Woman DC Super Hero Girls (I’ve found four of these dolls so far), but the rest will be added to my shop in due course. Finds include a vintage Tiny Blessings doll called “Christopher” Sindy, Rosetta (from Tinkerbell), Rapunzell, Belle, singing Doc McStuffins, a bunch of little Bratz, What’s Her Face, Inside Out “Joy”, Equestria Girls, LOL Surprise, Lots To Love baby doll and the super Molly & Friends large “Evie” doll. I also found a few odds and sods, plus a large broken vintage doll called “Rosebud”.
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 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)!
Last weeks finds were most plentiful, covering the carboot on the Sunday, followed by various charity shops during the week, and seem to have found lots of things in twos! I’m most pleased with the vintage He-Man and Stormtrooper figures, an Ever After High doll for 20p and the fabulous “Boring Postcards” book!
I had some luck with vintage toys whilst out charity shopping this week (1980-90’s), with Girl’s World, an original Furby, a giant Sweetie Pups, Tasmanian Devil and Dennis the Menace. I also found a few more Animal Jams, PJ Masks car and figure, Paw Patrol, Spongebob Square Pants, Scooby Doo, Doctor Who, Zelfs, Despicable Me Minions, Ddung, Baby Bratz, Lalaloopsy, Pokemon, Winnie The Pooh, My Little Pony, Chubby Puppies, Pez, In The Night Garden, Peanuts and Dr Octopus from Spider-Man.
