Treasures for Dollars: Item 10

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!

The 10 part mini-series of Treasures For Dollars has finally come to an end. Is anyone else sad as well? (Maybe not me, because this could mean that I will stop trolling the aisles of the dollar stores looking for interesting things, at least for a little bit.) My last item is going to be a little bit more expensive than the other items and I didn’t even find it at a dollar store. No, I found it at a hardware store. It’s Loctite Super Glue (for all plastics). I first mentioned it back in November when I was working on fixing my Kenner. The glue failed for me several times before I gave it one last try just this past Monday (January 16th). I’ll save the details of what I did to finally make it work for my follow-up entry for when I reveal my reassembled Kenner (poor Emmalynn has been in pieces in a box since November!).


The two-part glue was $6.99CAD + 12% tax, making it the most expensive item featured in this mini-series. But it was totally worth it, because it (after many attempts!) eventually helped me fix my Kenner. And in the grand scheme of things, $6.99+tax is a lot less than buying a Kenner (besides if I were to find one at a thrift store).

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