Barbie’s Wild Black Hole Celebration

An impromptu visit to the dentists last week lead to various charity shop finds. I found a Barbie “Rainbow Lights Mermaid”, three LP’s, a bottomless money bank doll, “Where The Wild Things Are“, “Pan’s Labyrinth“, and a holographic millennium party CD.


Rainbow Lights Mermaid Barbie

This is a lovely doll, although missing her crown. I only figured out she still worked the next day, very exciting! A great buy for £1.50.


Money Bank Doll

This plastic money bank doll has no bottom, but still good for 50p.


“Where The Wild Things Are” by Maurice Sendak

For some reason I have never owned a copy of this book, and don’t think I have come across it before in a charity shop. I’ve seen plenty of little spin-off items, but never the book itself. This copy is from 2000 with lovely large illustration and in fairly good condition. It was 50p.


Pan’s Labyrinth

This was in the children’s DVD section, so only 50p!


Manuel and The Music of the Mountains ~ “Carnival” & “The Sun, The Sea and The Sky”

I can never resists a bit of Geoff Love, of which I have quite a library now. I don’t own many of his 1950’s work under the pseudonym of “Manuel and The Music of the Mountains” so snapped these two up, both 50p.


The Black Hole – Original Motion Picture Soundtrack

I don’t often find soundtrack LP’s in charity shops, so this was a must and only 50p.


Celebration 2000

This CD, released in Nov 1999, was made for Millennium parties. I mainly bought it because of the holographic cover but it’s actually quite fun and might have to come out at the next party! It was £1.00.
