One of the reasons I've always loved charity shopping is that I never know what treasures I'll find and now I also enjoy seeing what treasures Sunnyboy finds. Last week at the charity shop where we work Sunnyboy bought a Star Wars plaster moulding and painting set for £1 and the next day asked Nozy to help him make the models.
The day after that the models were dry and Sunnyboy painted them. Here are Sunnyboy's completed models of Yoda, R2-D2, Darth Vader and C-3PO, which he was very pleased with.
Later in the week we were charity shopping and Sunnyboy found this little floral ornament for 45p (not sure who was pricing bric-a-brac that day but Sunnyboy thought it was a bargain). It now has pride of place on top of our television.
This week all Sunnyboy bought was a 10p Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle, but he's looking out for a Green Goblin as he's currently fascinated by Spider-Man (he already has a charity shop Spider-Man toy). I think some webbing and the ability to crawl on walls and ceilings are also on his wishlist.
