Great Retro Finds in Charity Shops

I love trawling through charity shops as you never know what you are going to find. There's a lot of random rubbish but every now and again you find some 'treasure'. Come on a wonderful journey with me through the musty shops from around England!

And when Jack got to the top of the beanstalk he found a giant Cyclops.

Poor old Bagpuss, he's always left on the shelf.

This film used to scare the heck outta me as a kid. This novelisation was a bargain at 1 quid but this gets me a-thinking, what's happened to all the novelisations?

Polly Pocket was huge when I was a kid, for boys there was Mighty Max.

You don't find anything to do with Farthing Wood for ages then two come along at once... this book was in another charity shop but two finds in a few days is great for this elusive series.

I bought this for my daughter for 3 quid and she loves it!

This ThunderCats puzzle is pretty expensive but I'm sure a fan of the show will snap it up.

This Bread game costs a lot of dough

Not sure I'd call it a classic animation, classic game definitely!

Space Invaders... 50p a credit!

I used to love this series as a kid, now..... hmm, not so much. However I still love the sad piano theme.

I loved the Animals of Farthing Wood as a kid and found these videos in a shop but the tapes weren't all there.

The cult classic at a snip... under a quid! Well that'll do nicely, so long and thanks for all the fish!

Action Man was never that popular a cartoon... but using 90's street words like 'extreme' is not going to help sell it to kids, they're too smart to fall for that!
