Rummage Treasures

It’s rummage sale season again, and is there anything more satisfying that unearthing some American Girl treasures?  I think not!

Today Brianna and I hit a moving sale that was managed by an estate sale company.  To me, that usually means high prices.  Some estate sale companies also sell online.  The craigslist ad mentioned American Girl clothes but no dolls.

We were sure to arrive at the opening of the sale.

We walked in the door and I asked where the doll clothes were.  I did not run anyone down (in case you were wondering…) nor was anyone else interested in them.

In one of the bedrooms there was a little box of American Girl clothes all organized in Ziploc bags.

Kirsten’s On the Trail outfit!

This is one of my favorite Kirsten outfits.  The fabric is so old-timey, yet soft and comfy.

Caroline is standing in as Kirsten — she is my most Scandi-looking girl.

The outfit did not come with the shawl.  That’s Ok.. I often don’t use those pieces anyway.

I love the rosemaling-style detail on the apron.

It’s a pretty outfit without the apron, too.  I look forward to trying it on Addy.

I bought it for $5.00!  I also got a Pleasant Company-era brush for .25.  It looks like the current brushes except the wood is a cherry color.

I bought more, too, but you will have to wait for more posts.  I wanted to showcase this awesome dress.
