If you have seen any of my other posts, I have a collection of Monster High dolls. This week in a bag o' fun, my little girl and I found a Drop Dead Gorgeous Operetta! She is the first MH doll that I have ever found at a thrift store. It is surprising because she is brand new. I would expect to find possibly an older doll in questionable condition. But this one is still available in stores and fairly easy to find. She still had her earrings, mask and necklace. The rubber band holding the necklace in place is still there. All she needed was a pair of shoes, which was easily taken care of.
The fashion packs at Target sold for $24.95, which was $5 less then the Tim Gunn Barbie dolls. I was thrilled to find this! I love Project Runway and Tim Gunn! For Christmas, my husband gave me one of the Tim Gunn Barbie dolls. But now with the fashion pack, I have 2 Tim Gunn Barbies.
All of the small accessory pieces are still in the packaging. I only removed the blouse, skirt, and shoes to put on the doll.
The Barbie wearing the fashion pack I got back in December at the Goodwill. She is one of the model Barbie dolls and was only a $1. I put her in my "secret stash" hoping I would find some clothing for her. I think the 2 are a perfect match.
My addiction to Transformers is growing. Now, I would generally prefer that my Transformers be trucks and not monkeys. But holy moly! , when you see a large metallic blue baboon sitting on the shelf, you just have to check it out.
B'Boom is actually a mandrill for the 1997 Beast Wars Transformers line. He isn't in the greatest of shape. There is one part missing from his chest. But, like I said, a metallic blue monkey is just cool to look at.
I also picked up a couple of his Beast War sidekicks. Both are in rough shape with missing parts. They still look decent in robot mode.
The yellow and green on is a Cheetor Transmetal Deluxe figure from 1999. He is missing his robot form arms. The Elephant is Ironhide. It is missing its elephant head and another tusk. This Transformer is really top heavy and not terribly exciting in the design department. There were 2 other Beast Wars Transformers when I got these 3 but I decided to pass on them, because their condition was beyond hope.
I talked about the Lala Loopsys and the other items in these pictures in another post. I thought these were a great find considering like Operetta, the Loopsys are practically brand new. These items have become my sell fodder.
