Ladybird Books

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)!

Where’s Jane?

I have to say, my favourite book buy of February has to be Jane Asher’s “Fancy Dress” (more photos below). I saw it in my FB newsfeed in a group called Charity Shop Shit, and was so taken went straight onto eBay and purchased a copy for £1. Best Buy Ever! I also rescued some 1980s Pins & Needles magazines from being recycled.

Rupert’s Favourite Knightmare

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”.

Guardians of the Naughty Star Lord

A bit of shopping (and a pint) in Rayleigh found me a Moxie Girlz doll and various figures (Monsters Inc., Guardians of the Galaxy, Duplo, The Corps, Pint Size Heroes, and Jurassic Park), as well as Felicity Kendal reads All About My Naughty Little Sister on LP, Star Lord Annual 1982 and a Ladybird book called More Things To Make.

Sally’s Magnetic Danger Boots

I came back with a nice selection of toys and books from last weekends carboot sale, including two Furbys, three little Disney Princess Mini Toddler figures, a Sally Secrets doll, a Sylvanian Families dog, six vintage Ladybird books, a crocheted plush figure from Paperchase and Pucca bag.

Sweet Mr Monster Hedge

Half term week meant lots of pottering around and lots of charity shop finds. It’s a good job I am about to put up some more shelves as I’ve run out of room! I found Sweet Valley High, Lalaloopsy, Sweet Secrets, Furbys, Moshi Monsters, Glimmies, Ladybird and Brambly Hedge books, Puppy Surprise, Equestria Girls, Monster High, Ever After High & Mr Men.

Teenage Mutant Fantasy Pigs

I couldn’t do a trip back to the homeland (Bath) without perusing the charity shops along Mooreland Road last Monday. I came back with two modern reprints of Fighting Fantasy books, a Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles book, and two “Well-Loved Tales” Ladybird books. I also bought Leon, Amelie, and Twilight.
