“Kit, why are you still wearing 4th of July clothes!”
“Well, I am new here and I haven’t have a chance to try this outfit on…”
“Go home and change into your swim suit. I have an idea!”
Swimsuits are from Springfield (Michaels). Julie’s car wash sign, bucket, and towels came from the Madison Children’s Museum Benefit sale. More specifically, they came from a vendor who set up shop in the street outside the sale itself. This vendor has enormous clear tubs of extra pieces to various American Girl products, all wrapped in tiny, individual American Girl bags. Thousands of pieces.
In retrospect, I imagine that these folks do not pay a fee to be a part of the sale, and it feels like the American Girl Black Market. Then again, the vendors must be buying them direct from American Girl or the outlet, so what else would someone do with 100 individual chile ristras for Josafina but resell them?
