Doll Sized Finds–December/January Drought

I didn’t do much in terms of looking for doll sized finds in the month of December simply because I didn’t have time.  January has been very slow as well.  But as I’ve mentioned before, I don’t know that I need to look that much now, and if I do, it’s going to be very selective.  However, sometimes opportunity presents itself!

My husband and I decided to take a ride to see one of his customers on a weekend, and I took that opportunity to check out a thrift store I’d noticed, but hadn’t stopped at.  It was a nice store, but using my self-imposed rules, I only got one thing:

After Christmas I had a trip to Target.  I was surprised to see how much Christmas stuff they had as it was well after the New Year–but I’m not going to complain.  I got this adorable pink tree ornament for 30 cents!

I think it will make a great decoration in the dollhouse next year.

On the same Target trip, I came across this MI World package on clearance for $1.48. I’ve seen where several different people have used these accessories with the mini dolls, so I decided to go ahead and get it.

Here you can see all of the cute little pieces that come with it, as well as the stickers. Very cute!

That’s it!  Slim pickings, but I’ve been working on some other things and really haven’t had a lot of time to look.  Have you found any goodies on clearance or in thrift stores recently?

    • Part of my problem is I haven’t been motivated to go to thrift stores enough, plus I need absolutely nothing. So I’ve been skipping them.

  1. I love that miWorld set for the minis. I think I’ve picked up all the food packs now for them. Of course, none of it is all that healthful. 🙂

    The dog is adorable! Great find.

    I do like Happy Meal toys for my doll collection. The conversation heart pillows last February were great home decor. I do get annoyed when they don’t give me the right thing though. Last time I said “for a girl” and got one of the transformers for the boys. They are too big. Oh, well.
