It’s been a while since I’ve done a doll sized finds post. Mostly because I’ve had so many things going on, I haven’t really had much time to get out there and shop! Put it this way, if it isn’t sold at the grocery store, chances are I don’t get to see it. However, I did manage a day out that didn’t involve strictly groceries, and I found some pretty cool stuff. Are you ready to see it???
I stopped at Dollar General to actually buy grocery type items, so you can imagine how excited I was to find some doll type items. First I came across this cute little pots and pans set:
The utensils are a bit too big, but the pots are just perfect. Only a dollar too! The lid fits both pots as well, just like with some real sets you buy.
A trip in the hair care section yielded this:
Yup, a whole card full of mini bobby pins. Sometimes these are hard to find, and AG wants an arm and a leg for them with their sets. $2.25 is much more reasonable for 36, and there is a neat little gadget on the card for opening them up easier. “No teeth needed” it says!
The last thing I found was on my way to check out, sitting in a cart of assorted Christmas leftovers:
Since it was on clearance, I paid all of 25 cents for it. They had a couple of different ones, but I liked this one the best. Always nice to buy Christmas decorations on clearance, even if it is for the doll house. 😉
I decided to make a stop by Walmart, looking for a piece of fabric that I needed some more of. This isn’t my usually crappy Walmart at home, and they frequently have different things than what ours does. No luck on the fabric, but I did find something else I’ve had my eye out for:
The My Life As shopping basket! I’ve seen this posted on several different blogs, but hadn’t come across it just yet. Of course I had to get it. I was impressed with how many different pieces come in it for the $7.97 price tag.
I think all of the pieces are very well done. AG had better watch out, quite frankly their food items leave a bit to be desired sometimes and this is some serious competition!
There was a plastic insert in the basket to make it look a bit fuller for retail display purposes, but it easily pulled out. Everything fits back in though, and I love that the handles work just like on a real one!
The water bottle is my favorite piece, mostly because I like that they put a handle on it so the dolls could actually hold it.
The last item came from a stop at a Salvation Army. I was excited to find it, and even more excited when I saw the price tag–49 cents! That got even better after I got it home, cleaned it up and inserted a new battery. IT WORKS!!!
It will be going in the doll living room, I think it will be perfect in there.
That’s it for this installment! Have you found anything cool recently?? Until next time!!
