Happy Thursday, everyone! I thought I'd share another quick "Thrifty Thursday" post, along with some other non-thrift store finds around town. :)
This past week at Goodwill, I was able to find this guy:
He's from the "Ty Girlz" line (the same company that released Beanie Babies). This line of plush dolls have wire in their arms and legs to make them posable. They kind of remind me of plush Bratz dolls (the girls especially). A few years back, there were a ton of them in Tuesday Morning, and I discovered that some of their shirts and sweatshirts fit the Hearts for Hearts Girls. The tighter shirts and pants are too small for H4H, but I thought they might possibly fit...
...our Curvy Barbies. And I was right! :) The jeans look a little awkward in this picture, but they do work. I don't know if the pants on the girl dolls would fit. I think the bagginess of the boy pair is what made them fit Tori...and just barely. The girl styles might be too small. It's nice to have another option for our Curvy girls, though. :)
The shirt fit Dell and her friends perfectly. :D
At the 49 cent table, I found this interesting little doll. I picked her up for my friend from the doll club who collects these types of dolls. She has either a porcelain or paper mache face (as far as I can tell), hair in need of a comb, and a body/kimono that appears to be made of Styrofoam (or something like it).
Her crazy hair from the back. ;)
That's all of the exciting stuff from the thrift store for now, but here are a few non-thrift store treats that are still "thrifty" for your wallet. ;)
At Michael's last night, my girls and I found these Michael's exclusive "Flash Charms:"
They're made of plastic and have little silver bells attached to them.
Aren't they cute?
They cost $1.99 each, and there are lots of different designs to choose from. (You can see more of them on the Michael's website HERE.)
Of course, these instantly brought to mind the "Bell Charms" of the 1980s. Do any of you remember those? (If you need a refresher, HERE's a blog post about them.) I never had any of these myself, but I remember seeing them around. They were pretty popular then. The Flash Charms look almost exactly the same, down to the little silver bells and the design of the plastic clasps. You can even get plastic chains for your charms like the original ones from the 80s.
My girls had a fun time choosing one for themselves and one for a friend. It was a great walk down memory lane for me, and an inexpensive treat for them. :)
Middle Gal decided she wanted to take her charm off of its clasp. She's hoping to find a doll tiny enough to ride this scooter. ;)
I love that it even folds up! :)
Another recent fun find was from Walmart. For around $2, you can get blind bag necklaces:
(I apologize for the blurry picture. I took it in a hurry and threw away the wrapper before checking my phone.) :} They had Disney Princess, Avengers, My Little Pony, Frozen, and more. I chose My Little Pony this time around.
And I was so excited to see that I ended up with FLUTTERSHY!! :D My favorite pony. :)
This next find falls into the "not so thrifty" category, but I still wanted to share. At my local Target, I saw two new Shoppies dolls I'd never seen before:
Meet Rainbow Kate and Sara Sushi. :) ($14.99 each)
Sara Sushi has yellow eyes, green makeup, iridescent white hair, and red, black, and green clothing with a sushi headband.
A look at the back of her packaging.
Rainbow Kate was my favorite of the two. Talk about a throwback to the 80s. ;) She has lavender eyes and freckles, rainbow colored hair and clothing, and a cake-themed headband.
The back of her package (sorry it's a little blurry).
Target also had some cute accessory sets for the Our Generation line, priced at $6.99 each. "Fine in Floral" includes glasses, three pairs of earrings, bracelets, a hair accessory, two hair pins, and a necklace, all in floral themes.
"Blue Belle" includes glasses, a headband, bracelets, and earrings in blues and greens.
Those were a few of our fun finds from around town. Hope you enjoyed them! :) Will any of these things be finding their way to your collections?
