A step out through Leigh on Saturday afternoon brought forth Hoobs aplenty, plush My Little Ponies, a kittenless Kitty Surprise, a friend of YooHoo, and more Clangers. Plus Austin Powers, Indiana Jones, George Formby, Frankie Howerd and ilk, and Pinky & Perky. I also bought an adapter and two loose plugs. Yeah, baby!
A rummage through the rather sparse 10p toy box in the Salvation Army charity shop this week resulted in six Star Wars figures, two Battlestar Galactica figures, and a The Black Hole figure. I also found a Playmobil and similar figure, plus A Clockwork Orange by Penguin Books from their Film Classics series. Film classic finds all round!
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.
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!
I had a small jackpot today from my charity shop rummaging. I found a lovely condition plush Keyper for 10 pence. 10p! I also bought the purple Flufflings I had my eye on a couple of weeks back, a sweet little rag story book and two paperback novels (About A Boy by Nick Horby and Dodger by Terry Pratchett).
I bought this large pile of 1980’s Dandy comics a few weeks back, along with various other items. I went carefully through them to sort them out into years, then stashed them away and forgot to photograph them. Among the pile was also Wow, a Christmas issue of Beano, and the cover from a Transformers comic.
I came back with an excellent selection of toys and books from the Lions charity shop last Saturday, including a full set of Sesame Street “On My Way” books, a Jack and Jill book from 1971, and various soft toys including a farting Grumples, a moaning Flufflings, a talking Hoobs, an accident prone Mr Men, a tiny Furby, and a baby Puppy Surprise!
Just a couple of book finds on the way home from work on Wednesday; Monster Fun Annual (1982), and “The Cat”, from the satirical Ladybird series “How It Works”.
I quick browse through the charity shops on my way home Wednesday found me a sci-fi double of Galaxy Quest and D.A.R.Y.L., both in excellent nick. I love Galaxy Quest and we watched it straight away but I haven’t seen D.A.R.Y.L. in years, so by Grabthar’s Hammer, I will watch it this weekend!
We popped over to Rayleigh last Saturday for a snoop around the charity shops (and a few pints in The Half Moon), and found a selection of books and TV series DVD’s, including series one of Frasier, BBC’s Bleak House, and the first three Maze Runner books.
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.
I found an excellent mixture of items in Westcliff’s various charity shops on Saturday, including three LP’s, two annuals (Jackie & Magpie), a little Bagpus, a Lalaloopsy doll, a plush Moshi Monster, and my best find of the day, a Dolly Surprise doll from 1987!
Wednesday’s charity shop finds were and amusing mix! I found three My Little Ponies, a Forgotten Realms trilogy box set, and a well-loved Doctor Who “Dalek Sec Hybrid” mask!
I found a few little things on my way home from work Wednesday, though admittedly the plush My Little Pony isn’t that little! I also found a very played with small MLP, a Zelf, and Splash DVD.
I’ve had quite a dry run of late where charity shops are concerned, so was determined to buy something a few weekends back no matter what! I came up trumps with five LP’s and an (empty) WHSmiths anti static turntable mat sleeve.
A few little finds this week. Tuesday took me over to Rayleigh for my annual teeth scraping, where afterwards I rummaged through various charity shops little toy baskets and came away with a few cute items. Then Wednesday after work I purchased four books and three movies.
A bit of a mixture from the charity shops this week. I found a little Ridgeway Steelite milk jug with a 1950’s design for £2.00, The Tommy Cooper Joke Book for £1.00, and lastly the Desperate Romantics DVD for £1.50.
This weeks finds was Ladybird book “Snow-White and Rose-Red”, from their Well-Loved Tales series, and a special 20th anniversary edition of E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial on DVD. They were both 50p.
An unexpected trip down the road to buy brushes for broom handles at the weekend resulted in this random selection of items from the Lions Club charity shop. I found a Palace Pets cat, a My Little Pony, a dress-up doll, a panda purse, Ghostbusters, and the craziest duvet set I have ever seen!
This years first charity shop finds had a bit of an unintended theme. DISCO!
I came back with an unexpected pile of eighties goodies last Saturday, mostly all from the Salvation Army charity shop in Leigh On Sea. I found three Look In magazines from 1983, three TV annuals (Super Gran, Gordon T Gopher, and Fraggle Rock), a pack of Mr Men Snap cards, and a Bros 12″ single (I Owe You Nothing).
After visiting the folks last weekend I came back laden with charity shop goodies (as per usual)! My favourite find was the John Inman With A Bit Of Brass LP, bought mainly for the cover. I also found four annuals and two story books. And a rather magnificent brown tie from the seventies…
Look what I found on my way home from work this week! Four little Care Bears plushes and a poseable character from Rainbow Brite (Shy Violet), all for 50p each. The bears are from 2004, but the Rainbow Brite figure is an actual 1980’s toy, which I almost never find these days.
On my way back from work this week I found thirteen lovely little Ladybird books from series 401. They were 50p each and all in fairly good condition.
I found two books on my way home from work last Wednesday; a Pippin Annual from 1984, and 7-Up Greatest Hits of 1986.
I found three items in charity shops in Rayleigh on Saturday, including a Care Bears pomander, a Once Upon A Zombie doll, and Educating Rita.
Found in the Salvation Army charity shop this afternoon on my way home from work, Subbuteo from 1991 for £3.00! Unfortunately the fabric pitch was missing, but there was a scoreboard set and pamphlet in its place. I also found an additional England team for £1.00.
I took a few items down the road to a local charity shop last weekend (some books and a green bow-tie) and came back with more than I dropped off! I found a Fisher Price plane, Waynes World 1 & 2, My Little Pony pot & Equestria Girls doll, plus a couple of CD’s.
I came back with a good selection of charity shop purchases a couple of weeks back (plus a couple of new). The haul included disco and indie music, Hello Kitty, My Little Pony, Grimm’s Fairy Tales, Strawberry Shortcake, pirates and glitter!
My most recent charity shop/second-hand purchases include Mr Men, Worzel Gummidge, Culture Club and an Elvis Chatimals. Sounds like the makings of a good night out!
A trip down the road to the woodyard, then into the charity shop on the way back got me 9m of wood and these! A new Geoff Love LP, three 78’s, two knitting books with “interesting” fashion, and a Beatrix Potter book.
The weekend away visiting the folks scored me four kids annuals, a book on fashion and a Taschen book of 1940’s adverts.
I came back with an excellent hoard of goodies from my local charity shop a short while back for about £3.20, including records, books and dolls.
I picked up sixty 78rpm 10″ records on my way home from work a few weeks back. An absolute bargain! They are all singles, and in OK condition with very few either jumpy or broken. Most are from 1950’s, a few from the 30’s/40’s and one is from 1912 or there abouts.
A visit to the charity shops in Oldfield Park, Bath was as fruitful as usual. Finds include Star Wars, Barron Knight, Henry’s Cat, Sonic The Hedgehog, Playhour Annual 1977, and pop up Shakin’ Stevens!
I found this fantastic picture disc and Muppet Show annual at a records and book fair in town on Saturday for 50p and £1.00.
