|I visited two thrift/secondhand stores: Sand Dollar and Goodwill and|
two discount chain stores: Big Lots and Tuesday Morning.
I started the trip with a visit to the thrift chain Goodwill - I took zero photos in there because their toy section was virtually non-existant. I found no action figures, two dolls, and a whole pile a ratty looking plush toys.
Thrift store number two was Sand Dollar, which had a larger toy section, but one that was dominated by preschooler building sets. Fun if that's what you're looking for, but it wasn't for me. They did have a handful of dolls though, all topless, and all with the price written on their backs.

First up was Tuesday Morning - I've heard stories of people finding Ai dolls, Pullips, and big Transformer sets at other locations of this chain, but I wasn't quite so lucky. They did have a few interesting things though.
|Style girls dolls for $19.99 and outfits for $6.99|
(all prices in USD)
|Disney Cinderella for $14.99|
|Madame Alexander Travel Friends for $7.99|
|My one purchase of the day: DC Super Heroes Plug & Play|
figures for $2.99
|Superman and Batman mugs for $4.00|
|Airborne Trooper figure for $20|
|Barbie and Monster High for $10-$12, which is the same (if not higher)|
than their regular retail price.
