Thrifty Thursday #2

Guess what guys! I got a job!! Which means... I had to hit the thrift stores this week to find a boring white button down shirt. Plain clothes scare me so I don't keep them in the house. (haha) Seriously! I don't think I own a plain shirt aside from the one I bought today...

Anyways, aside from one boring white shirt I found A LOT of really awesome goodies again and thought I'd show you guys. I spent about $15 this time around... but considering all the stuff I got that's a steal!!

I'm most proud of this amazing 1970 Ideal doll I found! Her name is "Velvet" and she came in her original box, with all her original clothes/accessories, AND her hair still grows! AHH! I didn't even know this doll existed, but as soon as I saw her I knew I just had to save her. She kind of reminds me of Talking Tina (from The Twilight Zone) too! Her hair is a bit frazzled and the box is quite worn... but I'm hoping to clean her up and re-sell her soon. She's worth quite a pretty penny you know! And I only got her for $5!! Man I really can't stress how excited I am about this.

Even the box is cool!!

I also got this wicked Spiderman wall scroll!! I haven't read this particular issue but I love pretty much everything McFarlane has ever drawn and for the price I couldn't say no. ;)

I also found this very large and very strange looking angry baby doll! When I first saw her she was laying in this white frilly baby bed, but I couldn't make out her face. And then I got close to her and saw that angry mean mug of hers and thought "You will now be my Rosemary's Baby!" So yeah... that's going to happen. ;)

I also got a bunch of tiny toys including some My Little Pony's, (for jewelry makings!), an odd vintage TMNT Raphael toy, some wooden letters and a few other things. Aren't they cute??

Anyways, that's it for today! Hope you guys enjoyed it. I know I'm happy! I mean when you go looking for a shitty shirt and hit gold? That's pretty lucky!
