This week's haul from the local thrift stores!
Couple of puppets, Monster High dolls (!!!), Don't Tip The Waiter game, Rainbow Loom, Mystery Metal Item, and a Big Bag of toy gold!
One of my favorite things to do is visit the local thrift stores. I love to be frugal, for one thing, and I find art supplies and inspiration everywhere I look. Sometimes I can't resist buying something I don't even know what it is! Like this week, see below. Sometimes I find exactly what I was looking for, and most of the time I am surprised by something or another.
Part of my art is using recycled materials, I'm always looking for some specific things, what do you always look for?
Here is Mystery Item of the week:
It's metal and it spins! Any ideas what it could be?
There were five puppets at one thrift store this week. The three I didn't bring home were a bit too well loved, and were threadbare in places.
They were all Muppet-like, but not recognizable as specific characters, and on closer inspection, appear hand made. I brought home the best two.
I have upgrading plans already. The green guy did have a shirt, but I took it off already, I'm going to make him a new one, I think he's some sort of a forrest sprite, wood elf, or tree troll. We'll see what he turns into!
