Flea Market Fun

I was talked into going to Englishtown (flea market) and boy am I glad I went. I wasn't enthusiastic at first since we were leaving  after noon which means all the good stuff is usually gone. I didn't take a ton of money but for about $20 I found some goodies I'm proud of. 

My 1st find of the day I picked up the Sophie & two NFL Jerseys for $3. I love LIV bodies for body swaps. Those jerseys will come in handy for either the ladies or a couple of guys.

Next find I up 3 dolls and 2 books (not pictured) for $6. Not sure which Christie's or Teresa this is. Teresa must be a ballerina (note the purple colored plastic legs). The Christie's are pretty. They came dressed as you see them. Teresa is having a slight wardrobe malfunction.


The last find of the day I was uber happy because I spotted the Princess of Ancient Mexico for $4. She doesn't have her headdress,  necklace, or armlets but hey for $4 I'm still happy. I've wanted her for quite some time. She is one of those dolls I regret not buying when she was on the shelves.  The other dolls were $1 each and with some cleaning up they'll be great. I found a Esmeralda, one of the twins from the 12 Dancing Princesses, Skipper, not sure who the blonde is but I thought she was cute, My Scene Chelsea, and an Asha faced cutie.






Kind of makes me wonder what I would've found if we were there earlier. I know I would've spent more than $20...LOL.

  1. What great finds! Hopefully once the radiation is over, I can get to go down to Englishtown. Have you ever been to Collingswood Flea Market on a Sunday. Maybe one day, all of us can get together and take a mini flea market trip. My daughter took me to the Thrift Store yesterday and I was very disappointed. NO DOLLS!!!!!

    1. Frannie it's a date. I would love to hit the flea market together.

      I hate it when I don't find a doll or just overpriced Bratz. There were a lot there.

    1. Even though a lot of people were packing up I still found these goodies. Flea markets are great if you love to hunt for goodies. You never know what you'll find

  4. Score! That Christie is doll is really cute. You even found one of the ballerina twins. I stopped in a thrift store yesterday, and spent $20, too. Kind of sad because I was only supposed to be dropping off a bag of clothes.

    1. That never works. I can't go to the place that I donate because I always end up with new to me stuff..LOL

  5. I haven't gotten to the large flea market in years. There use to be bus trips but no more. The blonde doll is Winter Frost Sleeping Beauty- 2001. I have her too. I would have killed for one of the Dancing Twins! There is something about Esmeralda's face that I like. I have seen where some have painted the eyes brown. I works well on her with her hair. You really scored!

    1. Thanks for the ID on Sleeping Beauty. I'm not sure if I want her eyes brown. I'll have to look at some pics. The blue seems to pop more even if it may not be natural :O)

      Ms Leo you have to get back out there. Even if you don't do the whole thing.

  10. Hello from Spain: congratulations on these purchases. The dolls are beautiful and very cheap. What a pity that I live so far away but I would also go with you to market. Keep in touch.
