Greerings and Salutations Doll Friends!!
So this past weekend my husband, being the sweet guy that he is, hands me some money and tells me I should go on a dolly shopping spree. Who am I to say no? So, on Saturday, I made the rounds of two Walmart's, two Target's, one Goodwill and a Toys-R-Us to see how far I could stretch my money. Teehee. Like a challenge, even.
I found so many amazing deals!!!
I specifically told myself when I set out that I was not allowed to buy another doll. I have lots of dolls...!! But I never had Kyla!!! She was only $12.98. This is not my fault. It had to happen! She practically followed me home. I have no regrets. *giggles*
What was I saying about not buying any dolls? But these don't count right? Because they are dolls for my dolls and so kind of like accessories, right? I found these marked on the shelf for $4 each and picked up just one... When I rang up though, they rang up for only $2.50!! So, naturally, I bought four. Hahahaha. Only two of them are for me to keep though. One, naturally, is to be sent to Frann, one of the twins in the PJ's. We get a kick out of sharing dolly stuff and having twinsy stuff and so that had to happen. What about the fourth? Well... I think I am going to have a little drawing for that one!! The little School Girl dolly will be given away in a contest. I'll try and get the details posted about that as soon as I figure them out. Haha. It will involve finding my Facebook page Facebook Page and giving it a like and probably sharing a post from there. I'll come back and update this page with details when I dream them up.
Then this is a new item at Walmart! It's clothes for the Mini's! The set was $9.98. As you can see from the post about doll tea party I have a American Girl Doll Julie Mini I got at a Flea Market and another American Girl Mini that looks just like my Lilly Doll as doll for my Heather Doll and Frann Doll. They didn't really have too much in the way of outfit changes because I knew Frann loved mini dolls and forwarded on the Our Generatio Mini Doll and Wardrobe on to her a while ago. I have a TON of doll stuff and so I was happy to do so! But when I saw this I thought it might be fun to have a few little outfit changes and more shoes for them. You know, so Heather Doll and Frann Doll can change out their dollies!
I hadn't ever gotten a My Life As version because, lets be honest, I am cheap and $10 was always more fun to spend elsewhere. But four for $10? That's a fun price! So I bought one for Heather Doll, one for Frann Doll, one for real Frann and one for the drawing. All for $10!
When I went to the Target stores (I really did go to two different ones on either side of town!) I didn't really see much new... In fact both Target's I went to were very lackluster regarding selection. I was feeling the pain of the people I read about in my Doll Groups on Facebook who say they never have anything good at their local stores. Yikes! But I did find these two "Todays Special" sets. Why two? Because if you're going to have a diner, you need more than one table, right? So of course you need more of one of each of the napkin holders and condiment bottle holders for each table, right? As I said the other day in another post, I think that the Our Generation Diner at Target is neat but it's so huge that I think setting up a diner with my own furniture and these accessories will be just as much fun.
I almost fell over when I found these sets marked for $4.00 but when I rang out they rang up as $2.00 each set!! Awesomeness!! I've always thought I should have more tacos than the two who came in my origial Fiesta set and now I'll have six!! Perfect for a fiest party now!! The baking set never really appealed to me at regular price but I think the apron is certainly worth $2. I was out of time and it was my last Walmart and stop or I might've braved the crowded line/store and gone back for the rest they had but.... I was done for. Don't think it won't haunt me. I could probably get three times that on eBay in the coming months. But lets get real, if I buy them, it's not to re-sell.
I also got this hat and 'fur' collar set for $4.99. You can get one too, they are same price on TRU Website right now.
I think the most exciting find of the day after Kyla was the My Life As Doll bed. I forgot to take a separate photo of it but you can see it above in top photo. It was only $5.00!! I've thought having another bed in the bunk bed bedroom would be a good idea because I have so many girls in the Doll House needing to sleep somewhere for sleepovers. So this will be great. Not totally in love with the color and may get brave enough to try and paint it at some point but... For $5.00 I'll take it. If they'd have had two I would've bought two because they stack! I should've seen if they were compatible with the newer My Life As Doll bed in white because they did have a few there but I didn't think to. If I run across one soon I'll measure and see. Because it'd be fun to have another set of bunk beds in that room!
OH! I nearly forgot! I got the Star Wars R-4 toy at the Goodwill for $4.00!! It's gonna be great to go with one of the dolls on Halloween!!
Till next time!
