I cant stop going to that thrift store. Their new location has been open for 10 days (they are closed on Sundays) - and I have gone to it 9 of those 10 days. Granted, I pass by it during my routine comings and goings, but I'm like addicted to it. I just don't want to miss finding something awesome though! How can I stop when I stumble on cool stuff like this:
Bijou Moxie Teenz. Do you know how long I have been trying to find the black Moxie Teenz body in the stores? FOREVER! And boom, here she is in absolutely perfect condition for $2.95.
I don't know who this guy is and he has a ink stain on his face, but I liked his clothes and I can practice mouth closing on him as well as ink removal. Totally worth $2.95.
Lovely ladies paired together for $3.95. I only have one of this face, my former fairy, so I was happy to find more molds of her.
Another Brandy! This performance version has much longer braids than the other one and she too is in excellent condition. Her battery has run down so I don't know what she is singing. The other doll looks like Summer and her hair is jacked up but I can practice my hair cutting skills - which don't exist, lol. They were paired for $2.95.
Happy Family grandpa in his original outfit! He has a little loose seam in his sweater and that's it. Everything else is mint. I was all, "Grandpa! What are you doing paired with that young woman?! Where is your wife?" But then...
Found her! She is looking a little worse for wear and has some white splotches on her chest and back that I hope is just paint. That is not her original outfit but I'm sure I'll find something for her to wear. I don't know what is happening with that lady she is hanging out with. Kinda looks like they both went on a bender. Both these sets were $3.95.
Ah, that's better. She still looks wasted though. For shame, grandma.
That was all the dolls I purchased, but now I'd like to welcome you to the car show. Price of admission? Only $2.95 each:
Bratz Convertible Cruiser. I don't know why they made such long cars for such short dolls. Chad is the only male doll that will fit and he's super short. Monster High and Bratz bodies will fit (of course), but not Liv or Barbies.
My Scene My Ride Convertible. Frickin' awesome! So roomy even the Moxie Teenz can fit comfortably in it. Even though the doors don't open, there are some nice details in this car; the side mirrors close, there is a flip open navigation screen, levers for the steering column, gas cap opens, magazine holders in the doors and cup holders in the console.
Found another My Scene! A lady came up behind me in line when I was holding both cars and said, "Oh! You got the car I wanted. I was gonna get that car with the fuzzy wheel. Oh, I really wanted that." And then she smiled and stared at me like she thought I was gonna give it to her. I smiled back and shrugged with false sympathy, "It's mine now." She nodded and looked away. On the inside I know she was thinking, "This dirty cow took my car." Because I was thinking, "Trick, I will fight you in this store before I give you this car!" Thankfully we were both ladies about it.
I got this Barbie mobile to practice painting on. I actually don't mind this color. I like hot pink, just not light pink or pastels. I also liked that the hubcaps weren't those obnoxious B's that I've seen them use. I didn't realize until I got it home that those were high heels in the caps, lol.
So, that's all the dolls and cars that I got. I did temper myself because there were bunches more dolls and cars that I didn't get. I saw plenty of radio and remote controlled Barbie/Bratz cars - even a huge limousine, but I had to draw the line somewhere.
Always being mindful of my space constraints I only got the things that really, really interested me or I was curious about fixing up. Still, I think I'm getting out of control and I need to calm the eff down and stop going over there so much. Like, seriously.
