Hi everyone! If you were hoping for an exciting post today, you’re not in luck! Today’s post will be all about the Coles Little Shop Mini Collectibles. You get these if you spend over $30 in one transaction at Coles. I’ve collected quite a few so far, and they’re just perfect for Barbie dioramas!
For today’s post, we have Briar Beauty, Rosabella Beauty and Ashlyn Ella from Ever After High. Honestly, I’ve been trying to sell these girls for some time now, but the problem is that I paid $25-$30 each, and buyers will never pay even half that much!
It makes me feel sad that dolls become practically worthless in such little time! I doubt I will be able to get more than $2 or $3 each, which really frustrates me because they are so detailed and so beautiful! I think they are worth much more.
Anyway, these are mini collectibles I have so far.
Tim Tam biscuits! I really do like Tim Tams, but they’re quite expensive so I normally go for something else instead. I feel like this packet is a good size for dolls.
I’m not a fan of this shoe polish -it looks much too big for Ashlyn Ella!
I think I will customise it to make something else; perhaps a single stove burner? It might look good on a countertop.
These bananas seem a little plastic and “fake.” I will probably just get rid of these.
This instant coffee is my favourite! It’s the perfect size and it’s so realistic -it actually looks like real coffee! I’m very happy to have this one.
This can of tuna is a little big. I’m not sure what to do with it! I’ll probably end up selling this one as well.
I also got some other items -the Vanish Gold (laundry detergent) is a fun item, I’ll definitely be keeping that one. Perhaps I’ll make a laundry room someday! I like the Sunbites (crackers) and Potato Gems (frozen potato pieces), they’ll be good as realistic food items for kitchens.
I like the Huggies Nappies as well, but I’m not sure what to do with it. I don’t often use children in my photostories!
Speaking of children, I actually had a dream last night where I went to the department store and looked around at all the Barbie items. They had a fantastic selection! There was lots of child Barbie dolls -some Stacie’s age, some Chelsea’s age- with outfits made from real fabric! I really wish they had things like that in real life! The selection is just so disapointing nowadays.
Proper photostory coming soon!*
*Okay, not really. I haven’t planned anything yet. But I will! Sometime. Soon-ish.
