Two more thrift shopping adventures

Hello, my bucket list friends. Yesterday and the day before I went thrift shopping. I found some great items and I’m excited to tell you more about it so here we go. On Thursday I went to my favorite local Goodwill location. I was so happy when I saw this Barbie ornament from the 90s. It was still in the original box. Another item I found that got me excited was a color your own squishy toys art kit! I had a kit from this same brand before but this kit had different squishy toys in it. Other highlights include a mug from 1986, and a dog purse! Yesterday day after work I started off my weekend by going to Savers. When I got there I headed right to the toy section. I was happy to see that there were a good amount of dolls to chose from. I ended up getting three Barbie dolls. My favorite doll I got is pearl beach barbie. she still had her super cute earrings on and her blue bathing suit too! I also got a lot of Barbie movies. It looked like a whole collection of Barbie movies had been donated. I kept finding ones that I wanted to add to my collection. Some of the other things I got were two American Girl books, a bag of Disney Parks buttons ,a flip fllop pin, and new ear buds! Thank you for reading about my thrift shopping adventures!

An amazing Goodwill trip!

Hello,my bucket list friends! On Thursday, I went thrift shopping! I had not planned on going on thrift shopping that day but my dad had to get some items from the store next door. As you can probably tell by the title of this post it was a really good day for me at the thrift store! One item that I was really excited about finding was the game pretty,pretty princess. I remember this game from when I was a kid and I have been looking for it when I go thrift shopping. I was so happy when I saw it on the shelf. I haven’t counted all the jewelry but it from what I can tell it’s all there or mostly all there at least. This was a great find! Another great find from this thrift trip was a blanket that had some characters from The Lion King two printed on it. I also got some Tennie Beanies and a Barbie calendar. I also really love the plush purple cat that I got. It’s originally from Build a Bear Workshop and it has a cute little bow on its tail! I wish all thrift shopping trips could be like this.

Tuesday’s Savers trip :)

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday I went to Savers with my mom. Tuesday is senior discount day at my local Savers. It is a good day to vist because my mom can get 30% off. The doll section at my Savers has gotten a little better lately and I ended up getting four dolls on Tuesday. One of my favorite finds from this trip was a tin box that was from Tokyo Disney. I love the art on the front of it. Another one of my favorite finds from this thrifting adventure was 102 Dalmatians book that came with posters. I remember when this movie came out so it was a really cool thing to find. I did good with books in general on this thrift trip. I got some American Girl books and some other interesting books. I also got this really nice painting set. It was a successful thrift shopping adventure!

Thrifting on a Tuesday

Hello,my bucket list friends! It’s no secret that I love to go thrift shopping. I usually go on the weekends because I don’t work however, that’s when most people like to go as well. I decided to go thrift shopping on a week day. Last Tuesday my mom and I went to Savers. Tuesday is senior discount day so it was still crowded but my mom qualified for the discount so that was good. I got a good amount of items like I almost always do when I go to Savers. The items I got on this trip include, a bunch of Discovery Girls magazines, a Barbie book, a My Little Pony play-doh set, a Lion King Keychain, and a Barbie doll. There was not a large selection of dolls I hope there are more the next time I go to Savers. I also got a robot bank art kit. I’m excited to paint  it. Oh I also got a Keychain from Disney’s paradise pier hotel. I stayed in that hotel a long time ago and I was so excited when I saw the Keychain. Thanks for reading about my thrift shopping fun.

Saturday I went to Safeway and got some more Kinder Joy Barbie themed eggs and a cupcake that had a heart shaped ring on top along with a little sign that said happy Valentine’s Day. On Sunday I went to Whole Foods and I got a bath bomb shaped like an avocado! Now, let’s talk about my voice acting Journey! On Saturday I did a long group class over Zoom and it was so much fun! I have to finish setting up my home studio because I’m going to be recording my demo soon! I can’t wait to start applying for voice acting jobs! I have so much fun when I’m doing voice over homework. I can’t wait until I start working in the world of voice acting! Also on Saturday I took some time to be creative and played with Model Magic! I made a bunch of little things from just two packages of Model Magic. Oh and I’ve also been using lots of bath bombs.

Goodwill, Savers and an amazing find!

Hello, my bucket list friends! I’m excited to tell you about my latest thrift shopping adventures. Including one item that I’m very happy that I found. On Thursday I went on a quick trip to Goodwill. I I got some great items including a Melissa and Dad craft kit, a Barbie book that still had the stickers in it, and a set of Disney markers that came from the theme parks. I’m excited to use the Melissa and Doug craft kit that I got. I love the wooden heart-shaped beads. On Friday after work I went to Savers. When I walked over to the toy section I saw a large horse toy on the shelf. I wonder if it could be an American girl horse toy because it seemed large enough. I went over and looked at it and sure enough the tag on the leg said American girl. I was so excited! I love finding American Girl products but I was super excited to find this one. I think I’m going to do a photo shoot with my dolls and the horse. My other savers finds include some ’90s Beanie Babies, some Barbie dolls including one with a really awesome hair, a spin art kit, a set of Lisa Frank erasers,and a Christmas plate from the ’70s. I had a lot of fun at Savers and I spent more time there than I thought I did. I wonder what my next big thrift find will be.

Another Goodwill adventure

Hello,my bucket list friends! Yesterday I visited one of my favorite places,the Goodwill! Every other Thursday I go with my dad to drop off food at our church. The food is used to help feed the homeless. While my dad gets the food at the store I like to go to the Goodwill nextdoor and see what I can find. On this shopping trip the first thing I found was a bag of horse toys .They were so cute, I just had to take them home. My other finds were a Disney purse, a Build a Bear cat, a Barbie doll still in the box and a snow globe. I’m happy with my finds. What have you found at thrift stores lately?

My latest thrift shopping fun!

Hello, my bucket list friends! Going thrift shopping has quickly become of my favorite hobbies. I’ve been working on building up my beanie baby collection. I had so many when I was a kid and I wish I would have kept them. Anyways I’m also on the lookout for books from American Girl and Mary-kate and Ashley. I’ve been pretty successful with finding items that I’m interested in adding to my collection. I wanted to share my two latest thrift shopping trips with you. The first one was in Saturday to a local thrift store they have very limited hours so I don’t get to go very much. However I did have some time before my shift on Saturday so I was able to go look for some treasures. I found some Mary-Kate and Ashley books as well as an American girl book. I also found it a bag that had some Beanie Babies in it. Some other finds from that thrift shopping trip were a Barbie doll, some stickers and a bag of hair scrunchies. The next thrift shopping trip I wanted to tell you about took place on Tuesday. I had to get some shirts for my new job but of course I had to look for some fun items to add to my collection as well. I was excited to find two wellie wisher dolls from American Girl they had been well played with and needed some TLC but I was still very excited to have found them. I also found some really awesome ’90s Beanie babies to add to my collection. I was really hoping to find some while I was there and I was not disappointed. I also got a pink basket for Easter as well as some books including a Disney trivia book. What are some fun things that you have found while through shopping?

After going out for a great breakfast. I went to this area that has four thrift stores pretty close together. I had so much fun checking out all the different stores! I loved seeing all the different toys,books and various other items that these stores had to offer. I did pretty well when it came to books. I got some American girl books, some books from the candy fairies book series, and a Mary-kate and Ashley book. As far as toys goes I got two plush animals including a princess Celestia plush from Build-A-Bear workshop .I also got a bunch of really great dolls including a lot of Barbie dolls and two pinkie pie dolls.

Starting off February with a trip to Savers

Hello, my bucket list friends! On Tuesday, I had the day off so I decided to go to Savers. When I go to Savers I head right to the book section. However since it was senior discount day there was a pretty long line outside. My mom was with me so we were able to get the discount as well. After waiting in line I went to the book section. During this thrift shopping trip, I got books from some of my favorite series such as American Girl and Candy Fairies. In addition to some great books I found two Barbie dolls to add to my collection, some art kits and a Build a Bear Fluttershy. I’ve been trying to collect all the main My Little Pony Build a Bear toys and now I only have one more left to find. At the end of this thrift trip while my mom was in line to pay I went to look at the shoes. When I was looking at the shoes in my size, I saw a pair that really caught my eye. The shoes were covered in pictures of animals! It was a very successful thrift shopping trip. I was so happy that I found more candy fairies book I’ve been looking for those books for a while! I hope all of you are having a wonderful week.
