We hit up our Goodwill this afternoon, real spur of the moment style. I need to find a dress for an upcoming wedding but wouldn't you know it, I couldn't find a decent dress. I kinda knew "the" dress wouldn't be there.
But you know how it goes when you're goin with someone else. You gotta provide them with a "score object". I don't relate, but most folks need to feel buoyed to a specific item that they're searchin for.
So, the dress was in the scope but you better believe I was scannin all angles ;)
And I scoped some pretty good stuff for a little over $7.
A 1981 Garfield dressed as a Canadian cop or Simon Pegg in Hot Fuzz (maybe not completely accurate)
The miniature terrarium to end all terrariums!
I can't stop buying any doll that speaks of Mexican heritage.....
And I can't stop buyin cups!
But isn't this one awesome?! And I'm sure that this part of Disney has been long renovated into somethin more Pixar-y related and I never got to go to this attraction and now I never will so at least I can hold this cup and drink a refreshing iced tea from it.....
Almost the same thing.
Had to have it. It's a girl thing :)
A 1985 Treasure Troll. Not a huge troll fan, but somethin is happenin to me lately and I'm kinda diggin em'. And you know anything small and unmarked you get for 49 cents, anyway ;)
I always act nonchalant when I ask the cashier for a price, like they'll suspect the weird little object I'm tryin to buy is actually worth somethin and slap me with a big number (irrational, I know) .
And the BEST thing today! A Puppy Surprise!
(another "rich kid toy" I always coveted as a youngster)
And YES! This is the "Surprise"!
Mortifying, disturbing, a whole heapin of way too graphic for kiddos......
But it's all just nature, right? ;)
You know, one of the best parts about scourin the shops for all these little odd and random finds is the extended life of these things. They get a new post, I guess you could say. And I get to see my kids enjoy the same toys I once loved and dreamed about (who's the rich kids now, sucka!)
Toys were just better back then and don't even try to sway me. I'm just a stubborn fool on this one.
I don't see any inappropriate, mock C-section assisted birth toys on the market for little girl's nowadays.
