Treasures for Dollars: Item 5

Treasures For Dollars is a mini-series that is completely focused on things that I actually find (and buy) from dollar stores and other similar stores. It will alternate with Blythe On A Budget articles for the next little while until the finale of the mini-series (at Part 10). I hope you enjoy the series!

I frequent dollar stores often. There’s always something new that they didn’t have last time. I strolled through on November 1st to see if there were any Halloween goods to be had at a discounted price (and they didn’t disappoint! Four items for a dollar, previous price a day or two ago was at a dollar). But there was nothing that I really wanted to get, plus their cute stockings were still at $6 a pair (seriously, six for a pair of stockings that I’d probably get a run in under six wears). But I went down their hair accessories aisle, because that’s where the gems are. I don’t look at the more adult hair accessories because they’re usually larger, darker and not the right scale for Blythe.

I found these excellent little plastic hair elastics. I know non-dolly people use them for the ends of braids or whatnot, but they’re perfect for dolly hair (since they’re small) but also for a quick-fix for loose hips (you put the elastic into the hip joint of where the doll’s leg meets the pelvis to tighten up the joint). And at 750 pieces (I didn’t count…) for a dollar, can you really go wrong?


What’s a good inexpensive dolly-find you discovered recently?

    I learnt a handy tip today about these elastics: when you’re out and about you can use them to secure your girls’ shoes to her feet.
