She showed me these two boxes that were off in a corner that was no where near the toy section. When I saw they were taped up I asked her to open them and she said she couldn't, that they were sold as is. I was like, "Whuuuut?! Are you serious?!" I thought that was totally ridiculous, but as you can see, I bought them, lol.
Since the boxes said "toys" and not "dolls," I figured there were no dolls inside. At first, I walked away with a "puh-lease," but then, I just got SO curious. They were only $1.99 and $5.99 plus 20% off since it was Sunday. I thought, "What the heck? If I don't like what's in them I'll just bring them back and they can sell them to some other schmo."
The Contents of Box #1: Rejection Pile
These are the items I know I don't want at all. There was used chapstick in there! OMG, gross! A ball point pen. A single joker from a deck of cards. ONE SHOE?! Really, now?
The Contents of Box #1: These Things Interest Me Pile
I may not keep some of these items but they got my attention as I was divvying up the box. Pokemon cards, red guitar, karate rabbit and awesome snake! That's worth $1.99 right there! I'll paint that wood box and probably turn that baby shoe into a doll vest. I had to go online to find out what that purple container was. Mine is totally empty but filled it looks like this:
It's called a Girl Crush Airbrush Tattoo something or other. I'm sure I can break it down and use the pieces for a future dio.
All in all, I give Mystery Box #1 a thumbs up! Half interesting stuff, half crap for a total of $1.71. That's not bad.
I'm going to wait awhile before I look in Box #2. Dunno why, but I just like having it as a sweet surprise that I can be curious about but can open when I feel like it.
