Weird place to find Muppet Stuff

    I figured out of anyplace, you guys would greatly appreciate my find.

    While wondering through Goodwill I passed by the plushie section and out of the corner of my eye was a Fraggle. I squealed in excitement and grabbed it, running to my sister and was like "ghdkfss look! It's a fraggle! Such a weird find!" and she just gave me this look like "*** is a fraggle?". So anyways, I bought it.

    The next day I was running through goodwill and in the kids toys section I found a Janice plush. But I was by myself so I inwardly squealed in excitement. I love finding random stuff like that in unexpected places.

    Soooo I can't be the only person out there who stumbled upon muppet merch at goodwill, or garage sales? Anything?

    Well, I found a Muppet lunch box from like 1978 at my local flea market. It was outrageously priced, but, still, I was so happy! :)

    I found a Dr. Phil Van Neuter action figure at a garage sale for seven bucks. Bought it happily. :) I also had a similar incident involving a fraggle plush at a local thrift store.

    I got a giant baby kermit at a flea market and a Happiness Hotel Bus Mcdonalds cup at a yard sale.

    I was also recently given the Muppet Movie album on vinyl. Not sure how well it works, I don't have a record player

    My wife found me the whole collection of Great Muppet Caper glasses at oodwill...took us awhile to find all the glasses but it was fun to go around looking for them..the one with Kermit, Gonzo, and Fozzie in the baloon is the one we see the most with the Electric Mayhem BUs been the one we had the hardest time finding

    I found the Kermit phone from 1978. The one with the faux wooden base. I have seen it on Ebay for around $75-$125. I got it for $20. Maybe my prized Muppet item out of a few hundred Muppet collectibles.

    I'm in Buffalo. The first Sunday of every month there is this huge flea market/yard sale in the sticks that my wife and I go to. I have had some amazing finds over the years but the Kermit phone I found last month is by far the best.

    Yard sales and garage sales are an awesome place to get Muppet stuff. I got my copy of My Life as a Furry Red Monster at a yard sale for $1, and I've also gotten some other Muppet toys I can't think of off the top of my head. One time my friend gave me a 1979 Kermit stocking hanger she found and bought for me at a yard sale of some sort. I guess it was marked $25 but she thought it was marked 25 cents so when she took it up the woman let her have it for that anyway.

    Not really a yard sale but I know last month I went to Pennsylvania with my mom and some people from our church and we stopped at this HUGE country buffet restuarant and they had this really, really, nice sized old country gift shop downstairs well low and behold as soon as I walked down I saw the Jim Shores Muppets figurines...and they had a bunch of other Disney figurines but it was just kind of odd to see Muppets in a country gift shop. I ALMOST bought the Kermit figurine but didnt really have the money and didn't feel like carrying it with me all day. So there ya go you really do find them in the places you least expect too!
