I haven’t had a whole lot of time to go to thrift stores lately, I’ve been busy with all sorts of other things. I did manage to get out to the three stores in my area one day though and I came across some pretty cool items. Bear with me though, I do remember what I paid for them, but not where they came from. Yes, it’s been that kind of month!
When I saw this little container, I thought it would be a perfect canister for the doll kitchen or the bakery. It is supposed to be a jelly pot (I think) but it is very tiny. It’s missing the little spoon, but that is fine, I’ll put the opening where it goes to the back so it can’t be seen. I can see this being a nice place to put flour or cookies! It was 50 cents, has a few minor nicks in it that I need to touch up.
Then I came across these tiny little cups! These are just slightly bigger than the mugs included with the camper, so these are for those days when you need a bigger than normal cup of coffee. At 10 cents each I couldn’t pass them up!
I loved this little bowl, I’m assuming it was meant to be a tea light holder, but I thought it would make a cute serving bowl for the doll kitchen. Another fruit bowl perhaps? Heaven knows I have enough doll fruit to fill 2! It was only 69 cents and looked as though it had never been used.
Something that always amazes me is the number of Happy Meal Toys I see at thrift stores, still in packages. I worked for McDonald’s many years ago and even then, the toys were huge collectibles. I often wonder why all of a sudden they end up there, who knows?! On this day I came across these:
Build A Bear toys from 2012! I think they are super cute and I couldn’t pass them up at 49 cents each. No hamburger and fries to eat either. 😉
Anyone else remember these? I had two of them and someone always seemed to be playing with them at our house, adults and kids alike. When I saw this mini version, I just had to have it. I didn’t think $2 was too much either for something like this. It’s hard too!!
That’s all I found in the month of August. It might be a while before I do another Doll Sized Finds, September and October are going to be tremendously busy, I looked at my calendar and we have something going on every week for 6 weeks in a row! I’ll survive but it certainly will eat into my thrift store shopping time as well as everything else. And if you don’t see me posting as much, don’t panic, that’s why. I did try and petition for a 48 hour day, but it was rejected. 😉 Until next time!
