Got a huge bag of stuffed animals from the charity shop for £17
A WOMAN has been stunned after picking up a bag of soft toys from a charity shop for £17 – only to find one is worth over £200.
Gem took to TikTok to reveal her loot, which included a Mickey Mouse, floral bunny, some Care Bears and a green frog.
“I got this bag full of stuffed animals for £17,” she wrote on the video.
“I’ll show you what I’ve got – see if you can spot the triple digit one.”
Gem added in the caption to the video that she thought the £17 purchase was worth it as ‘little money makers’ – as she has a passion for repatriating fluff.
But even she was “shocked” when she found out what one of them was worth.
In his next video, Gem revealed that the blue Care Bear – Build-A-Bear’s Grumpy Care Bear – is actually his top earner.
Showing a screenshot of similar bears on eBay, they sold for between £200 and £311.
“Following on from the last video, here is the one that should earn me a pretty penny! she wrote.
“I feel pretty lucky. I’m going to enroll him now.”
“Why is it worth so much?!” one person commented on the video.
To which Gem replied, “I guess he was one of the rarest in the collection and cubs are highly collected so the non-mass produced ones are fine.”
“Waaaaaaa! another person commented.
And in response to someone else expressing shock at her discovery, Gem cheekily replied, “Dinner’s on me!”
