Does the Swedish Chef work there?
If he did, then I'm definitely going there.
LOL! Thank goodness no he does not work there!!! XD
It's not an extremely weird place, but since it's sorta along the line of yard sales and stuff (yet not), I got this little guy at a local collectible store for 5 bucks:
It's from 1979, made by Corgi International. This is a better picture/and info on it. I fell in love with it as soon as I saw it. I love getting Muppet merch from the 70s, so this has already come in there as one of my favorite pieces.
I went to a Goodwill store today and was hoping to find some Muppety books or old toys, but the store was Muppet-less. I found some other nice stuff, but nothing Muppety. Perhaps I will start having to check out yard sales.
I went to the Disney store outlet today. And hardly anything. I saw some animal coffee mugs and a muppets water bottle. Other then that Disney is getting ready for "Brave." :/
Hmph. They need to get more Muppet stuff in Disney stores. I wish I had one close to me. The nearest one I have is like two hours away.
Well when the new movie comes out I'm sure we're gonna be getting a ton of more merchandise then the last film. Unfortunately that won't be till sometime next year. :/
It's funny, I live in New Hampshire, and EVERYTHING is close by to me. Disney, Target, you name it!
Five yard sales, almost nothing Muppety. All I found was a few Sesame toys that I had no interest in.
Probably cause now were going to yard sales and expecting to find things. We need to think the opposite way so we'll see things when we least expect it. Lol!
That's exactly my mentality!
Sometimes surprise finds really are the best. I don't know if this is a wierd place to find Muppets but it was to me. I went with my husband to a used bookstore in our area yesterday. He likes to go there and trade books... anyways so I'm standing near the front of the store waiting for him to finish looking and I look over on one of the shelves and guess what was staring at me in the face?!!
I never would've thought of finding anything Muppets in a used bookstore!!! Needless to say it was all I could do to not start screaming and possibly get kicked out of the store. Lol! Talk about it was meant to be!!! I definitely believe in when your not expecting to find things is when you will find them! To me this was a treasure find because I had been wanting this book for awhile!!!
I remember once owning a toy that looked exactly like this! Only it was much newer. I think it might have been one of my birthdays or Christmas when I got a bunch of Palisades Muppet Show figures, a few Muppet Christmas Carol figurines, a number of Sababa Muppet dolls (a box set of the main cast and a Vets Hospital set) and that one Muppet Show CD... I know I'm going off topic here but I also have a couple other Sababa Muppet things, a Red Fraggle doll (missing the shirt) which I got from MuppetVision 3D's gift shop at WDW, and an old Kermit puppet, dated 2003, which unfortunately got a bit chewed up by my dogs. He's still useable though.
That's awesome you found that in a used bookstore. I've looked in a few places like that for Muppets stuff, and haven't found too much yet, but they are still fun places to look. My town's library has a big used book sale on the green in the middle of September, and I'm hoping to score some cool stuff then.
I was really disappointed that my church's annual flea market didn't have much of anything in the way of Muppet stuff this year. Usually I was able to at least pick up a Fraggle Rock storybook or something...
I was really blown away I mean I wasnt even there looking for anything haha it was a big surprise but a welcomed one! It was like Kermit was saying "I'm here take me home." Lol!
I know someone who got a set of Palisades Muppets just for $50 at his friend's yard sale! All MIB, too. The list of figures in the set is:
Beaker and MuppetLabs
Purple Tux Gonzo
