For a total of $43!
Originally would have cost : $151!!
I saved $108!!
This warehouse sale is so amazing!!

–Jen here… exciting, don’t you think?  I would have picked up a few Santa outfits, and the AG messenger and lunch bags are a great price.  I do believe I read on Facebook the messenger bag was $15.00 yesterday.  Going on Day 2 may be a wise decision.  The sale continues – albeit briefly – on Saturday.  For more details visit Mattel

Thanks again Abby.  I enjoyed the thrill of the sale through you!
