I have lots of pictures to show you, as it's time to share the bits and bobs that I've picked up this week. First the charity shop buys. I really like the illustrations on these wooden blocks. Very 1960s
Not sure what I'll do with these paper hula girls, but I couldn't leave them in the shop.
Then I've bought lots of cheap plastic tat, just because I love it.
The trouble now is, that I keep thinking to myself, that if I decide I don't want any of these things, I can put them on Etsy.com. Consequently, I can't stop buying stuff. Well, look out for these things on Etsy soon.
(i love those old purses - did you ever have one of those when you were little?)
I got lots of these stickers, so some are definitely going on Etsy. I think they're pretty cute and kawaii
And talking of kawaii, I thought these Koeda Chan keyring dolls were very sweet, and seemed a bit of a bargain on ebay. I don't really know much about these characters, apart from what it said on the ebay shop. Apparently they're also known as Treena and her Forest Friends.Not sure what sort of forest has apples, shamrocks and mushrooms all growing in it. A magical Japanese one, I suppose.
Also from ebay, these cheap plastic teen dolls (Bild Lilli clones?). I love the fact that the first doll has a hollow moulded plastic dress. You can't even dress her! Can you imagine the disappointment of the little girl who got one of those for Christmas?
I also got these Liddle Kiddles (& clones) from ebay. I keep buying little dolls to put into boxes to make art. And then usually I decide I'll keep them on my shelf. However, I don't think I'll be tempted to keep these, as they're a rough-looking lot. I think they need a good wash.
A bargain bunch of kiddies' jewellery from ebay. Some to keep and use, the rest to sell.
And last, but never least, more Dolly Darlings. These are the older ones, with the plastic hair. I don't remember these at all from when I was little, and I doubt if they sold them here in the UK, as they seem far more common in the US. When I first saw them, I really didn't like them, but they're growing on me now. Not as cute as the later ones with the nice hair and groovy frocks, but they have their own stiff charm.
So still acquiring a lot of stuff in a very random manner. But I've put lots of new things in my Etsy shop this week. And I sold something (Yay!). And I'm also finding time to make new things as well.
