As I’ve mentioned before, I’ve been busy with a lot of odds and ends kind of stuff, and as a result, my thrift store shopping has been non-existent. Other than the shelf I picked up for Cassandra’s room while we were in Connecticut, I’ve bought nothing else. However, my niece Barbie Girl is very good at keeping her eye opened for doll sized goodies, not just for Barbie sized stuff like she works with but also for my 18″ gang. We recently got together and did a swap of some stuff we had for each other. She found some awesome stuff for me!
First up, a thrift store find:
Isn’t this little tray fantastic?! I was super excited when I pulled it out of the bag, it’s going to be perfect for something that Evil Twin and I are working on. It needs a little bit of cleanup, but I love it!
I can’t remember where she said she found these, I’m thinking thrift store as well, but not positive.
These are so cute, I’m sure the two smallest and possibly the third one are going to work for my dolls. The red one is definitely too big, but it’s going to go in my kitchen, it won’t go to waste! These are really well made too, they look just like bigger versions.
Barbie Girl works for a large, upscale, deep discount, off-price retailer (not going to say who just in case, don’t want to get her into any trouble) and she’s frequently finding stuff. Periodically I’ll get a text with a photo for me to either give a thumbs up or thumbs down. Here are some incredibly cool finds from there! It’s almost as good as shopping online. 😉
I’ve saved the best for last. This item is just wow. I was excited when she sent me the picture, but I’ll be honest, it didn’t do this item justice. Probably one of the best doll sized finds EVER. Yes, it’s that cool!
It’s intended to be a Rolodex–but seriously, who uses these anymore? It works better as a doll sized file cabinet IMHO! I loved that the dividers are made to look like hanging file folders. As I told her, I just need to make some mini manila folders and paperwork to go in it.
There you have it, doll sized finds for October! Not sure what November will bring, I guess it’s wait and see. Have you found anything really cool lately?
Also–I’ve since discovered that Kohl’s is now allowing their Kohl’s cash to be used on American Girl items! I’m not sure when or why they changed this, but not only do I know of someone who used it to purchase a doll, but the info has also changed on their website. I wish they had changed this a week earlier!
