LOOT!

Darren and I went second hand shopping on Sunday (we almost didn’t tho because we thought it might be too much hassle with the tiny Noushe and the little Leith). Thank goodness we persevered because we scored BIG time.

Here are some pics of what we found (nothing cost more than R20 which is what I love so much about this kind of shopping).

This is my best item - it is a 1968 Fisher Price musical pony. He needed a bit of repair which I bravely undertook and now he lives again. I think the Bakelite bead which I found to complete the job rocks!

Here is the Micky we found. I don’t know his date of birth but I recon he is about 30 years old?

These are four out of the twelve Play Mobile figures we found - they are dated 1974 (Darren's birth year). I dig their funky Buck Rogers attire.

Speaking of Buck Rogers, look what POPPED up…

It's a 1994 reprint, but still, for 15 years old it is perfect.

I was delighted to find this bendable Buggs - I remember these from my childhood.

Look at this Fisher Price Camper extravaganza, complete with many people and a dog!

We were CHARMED by many other small creatures such as this wee monkey.

Here is the huge pile of treasures – We spent R100 in total!
