Thrift Store, Big Lots, and More
My mom visits the thrift stores several times a week. She makes it a point to look for Barbie items when she goes now. Yesterday she found two really nice items.
Do you know how long I've wanted this computer cabinet? Forever. I didn't buy it when it first came out. At the time it retailed for $16.99 and it came with some nice accessories. I chose not to buy it. I wasn't really doing anything with my Barbies and didn't foresee how great this would be later on. Since that time, the prices have been more than I've wanted to pay. Sorry I don't remember which playset this is from.
The thrift store price was 77 cents and my mom got a senior discount. Yippee!
This was the second item my mom found. I have a couple of similar mopeds, but none this color or with the little case on the back. I think this is going to be Faith's (Marisa) little ride to get back and forth to college.
I've had my eye on this music station ever since Muff talked about it on her blog. It comes with a doll, but I gave the doll to little Carmen. Big Lots was having their storewide 20% off sale this weekend. I thought I would miss it, being in Jamestown, NY, but even they had Big Lots. You can see some of the other cool sets by this company on Muff's site. They only had this one and the jewelry counter, which I wasn't interested in.
Another Big Lot find.
I finally added three of the new SIS Baby Phat ladies. I bought them at Target when I got back in town. I haven't deboxed them yet, but soon. I bought Grace particularly for the outfit. Love the sweater and the black tights are really nice. Can't wait to show them to you.
I picked up this horse outfit for $5.99 at Target, too. I have big plans for those horses I bought.
Sorry, I had to throw in this picture of doggy day care at PetSmart. I took Bruce to PetSmart to meet some new dogs. This daycare is attached to a posh PetSmart PetHotel. I was quite impressed. I will be doing a post about it on my new blog, Wow, Who Knew! This new blog will feature stories that aren't doll related, but that I find impressive for some reason or other. I'm still fine-tuning the new blog, but there is a story there now about a 12 yr old wonder chef. Why is she a wonder chef? Because she didn't taste food until she was 10 yrs old. Due to a rare disease, she was fed intraveneously for 10 yrs! Now she has a monthly food section in the Cooking Light magazine. Quite an impressive, inspirational story. After reading her story, I have no excuses when it comes to cooking.
