February was a good month for dolls! My favourite find (quite literally), was a naked Doctor Who “Sec Hybrid” doll in the bushes along my road! He had been there unclaimed for a couple of weeks, so decided to rescue him from the spiders and give him a new home (and clothes when I find something fitting).
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)!
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.
I found all sorts of little bits and pieces last week whilst charity shopping, including My Little Pony, Hello Kitty, Moshi Monsters, Trolls, Zomlings, Doctor Who: Daleks, a Fireman Sam “Norman” figure, a Monsters University figure, a FurReal Friends purple kitty toy, some little Disney kitchen items (these were all over the place), and a Littlest Pet Shop wagon. The Cupcake Surprise doll and Barbie dog I bought from the charity shop next door after I’d finished volunteering…
Monday’s charity shop haul, collected up whilst volunteering, , included Monsters Inc., Cat In The Hat, Muppets, Powerpuff Girls, Harry Potter, My Little Pony (fakies?), Lego Movie 2 McDonalds Happy Meal, Littlest Pet Shop, Fizz ‘n’ Surprise and three vintage kitchen items. Plus an odd Lalaloopsy boot and a Pinypon wig. My bag was full by the time I had finished my shift!
