I found an interesting mix of vintage and modern toys during March. Some I’m keeping, some I’ll be selling and some are presents. My best finds are the Sesame Street windup radio, the vintage Fisher Price Circus Animals and the Harry Potter fob watch.
Toys, toys and more toys! The end of last month found me all kinds of goodies including Bat Man, Beanie Boos, Ben and Holly’s Little Kingdom, Care Bears, Despicable Me, Doctor Who, Fireman Sam, My Little Pony (G1, G3 & G4), PJ Masks, Pocahontas, Postman Pat, Squinkies, Twistheads, Zelfs and Zhu Zhu Pets.
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!
Lasts weeks buys included lots of Hot Wheels cars, more UglyDolls, and a large naked Tinker Belle! I also found a fun M&M’s basketball sweet dispenser plus a few other fast food toys, ThunderCats and Yo-Kai Watch figures and a Popples book!
My visit to Bath to see the folks at the end of the month was most fruitful on the charity shop front! I bought thirteen Woman’s Weekly magazines from 1972, Pretty In Pink the novel, a Postman Pat LP, Jackie Annual 1985 and a photo book all about Frances Ford Coppola’s “Dracula” movie.
