Here's another BIG one! I'm so happy that I purchased this one. Now I have 3 trolls like this - the Santa, the Clown, and now this Vampire. It's a cute Vampire and in perfect condition. Made by Russ Berrie and labeled Russ Berrie UK.
I've decided to go ahead and show you all the fixer uppers I was talking about. It may be awhile before I repair them. I don't really want to use standard troll hair. I'd like to purchase some Mohair. When I do fix them I promise to add a picture. I'm still super excited that I now own a two-headed Wishnik troll.
I received all of this troll stuff today...
1. Two Uneeda Pixie Trolls. Uneeda is the same company that makes Wishnik trolls. See how the Pixies have troll bodies. These are from the 60s.
2. Elf troll - made by a generic brand but cute.
3. Total Trollers Talking Keychain - nice that it's still in it's original packaging. I've included an extra picture of the back of the package.
4. Magic Troll - this one is different than the one I've shown previously. That one was holding a cookie.
5. Peekin' Zeke "Your Computer Pal" troll - this one is unique. I've never seen another like it. This is the reason I purchased this box of trolls. Pretty cool, huh?
6. Battle Troll - still in the original colorful packaging.
7. Snack Sacks Reusable Troll Bag - in perfect timing for Earth Day...
8. Norfin Troll Chalk Wizard - it got crunched in the mail. It's nose and foot is broken and has other chips on it.
My total for all this stuff was only $13. Not too shabby.

Well I have to admit I was having a dry spell finding trolls for awhile there. Those cold winter months mean no yard sales and no outside vendors at the flea markets. But behold the sun is out and Spring is in the air and my troll finding luck continues...
Today I am showing the trolls found last weekend and today at the yard sales and a local flea market.
Stay tuned for 4 vintage trolls (including my first two-headed troll). They are fixer-uppers and I have to add new hair, eyes, and clothes but when I'm done you'll get to see before and after pictures.
The Ganz Troll that is still in it's box is my favorite of all the trolls found. My husband found it at the flea market. I ♥ my husband so much! Isn't it a cutie?
I even found a rug made out of troll hair. Pretty cool, huh?
