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.
Plush finds from January included a well loved Bagpuss, Danger Mouse, Frizzys, FurReal, Ghostbusters, Hatchimals, Hop the Movie, Lilo & Stitch, Minions, Paws, Puppy Surprise, Sesame Street, Shnooks, Sooty, SpongeBob Square Pants, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Tweenies and YooHoo.
Lots more toys to add to my collection, as well as my shop during October! I found heaps of little figures, lots of plushies and dolls, fast food toys and books. My favourite finds are the vintage Care Bear and Chatter Telephone, and a super Angelina Jolie Maleficent doll.
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 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.
The mister and I popped out on Saturday for a mooch around town (there may also have been cider) and I came back with all sorts of goodies! I found a Mr Tickle money pot, two Lalaloopsy dolls, a pink Frizzys, The Graffalo, a Puppy Surprise talking baby, two more Furbys, a Moshi Monster, Masters Of The Universe and Fighting Fantasy books, and a Rubik’s Octagon.
This weeks finds included Rainbow Spice, three Furbys, a purple Frizzys, a Liv “Alexis” doll, a Steffi Love “Little Mermaid Twins” doll, Kula Shaker, The Royal Family and a skull torch!
My very last find of 2018 and my first finds of 2019 include My Little Pony, Trolls, Frizzys and Bush Baby World.
A trip to Chelmsford last Friday turned up a few little trinkets (as well as a whole lot of rain)! I found a medium sized Frizzys, “The Ninth Gate”, an eighties edition Terry Pratchett book (The Colour of Magic) and a Hieronymus Bosch book from the fifties!
A Saturday morning trip to the wood yard last week, via the Lions charity shop (of course), paid of with this little lot! I found a large Frizzys, a Clanger, two mermaid tags, a Peko tin, a little leather kitty purse and a pink spiral thingie!
