Oshkosh Outlet – Julie Trip

I am usually very rational, but spending 3 hours in the car to drive to a store for 40 minutes to get Julie definitely falls outside my usual behavior!

Brianna and I hit the road last Saturday after I read on Living a Doll’s Life that Julie was available at the American Girl Outlet store.  See previous post for information about buying Julie.  Here are pictures of items we bought and a few thoughts on items we saw but passed on.  We tried to restrain ourselves with the Wilmot Warehouse Sale in 2 weeks.  I suspect many of these items will re-appear there.

Saige Bracelet for Girls

Saige Bracelet for Girls

Saige Bracelet GirlsSaige bracelet for girls – $ 1.00.  Clearly, they had leftover material from making the belt on the girls’ dresses!

Isabelle's MakeUp Set

Isabelle’s MakeUp Set

Isabelle’s make-up set, $16.00.  I also saw Isabelle’s dance case, Isabelle’s Metallic Dress, purple wrap skirt for dolls (and girls), and Isabelle’s meet accessories.

American Girl Charm Keeper

Charm keeper for dolls, $ 3.00

AG Quiz Books

Quiz books, $ 1.00 each (also saw Caroline’s mystery Traitor in the Shipyard for 1.00, and some of the InnerStar books that come with codes).  These are great for emergency gifts!

Saige items:  Saige’s punch frame craft, $ 1.00.  Saige’s picnic set, Saige’s riding helmet.  Also Saige notebook – .50 cents.

Doll Dining activity set, $ 3.00… this is a great price!

Josefina’s Dress and Vest, Josefina’s fiesta dress – both around $ 15.00.

Addy’s nightgown – I believe it was around $ 11.00.  I had so hoped to find this at the Wilmot sale last year, but I eventually caved and bought it full price.  Alas!  It’s a gorgeous piece that reminds me of Little Women.  They also had Addy’s nightgown for girls.

Kit’s barrettes – $ 9.00 (tempting!!)

AGP New York Sparkle T for girls and AGP LA T for dolls, $ 1.00 and .50, respectively.

They had the MYAG Hiking Outfit II — I believe it was around $15-16.00.  Also the MYAG Cycling outfit.

American Girl of Today Flute Set with Stand, $24.00

MYAG Snowshoe set, $ 5.00!!!

While the Outlet store does not ship, I have found them to be helpful if you need to call in advance to confirm availability of an item.

Thrilled!

This week I read the post about the Oshkosh American Girl outlet on Living a Doll’s Life.  I enjoyed reading about all the deals, but what really mobilized me was seeing pre-BeForever Julie on sale for $80.00.

I have wanted Julie for a long time, and when AG switched to BeForever I was really disappointed in the new outfit.   Julie’s original meet outfit reminds me of what I wore in the 1970s.  Many other parts of her story related to my own life, such as the gift of a tape recorder, making tennis racket covers (my mom made and sold them!), the apple seed necklace, and knowing lots of kids growing up whose parents were divorced.

I called the outlet on Friday, and they still had plenty of Julie dolls!

American Julie Doll

Away Brianna and I went on Saturday morning.  It’s not all that close for us, but as they say “YOLO”!

I’m just thrilled with her.

American Girl JulieI already had her original accessories from last year’s Wilmot Warehouse sale.  I have Ivy’s accessories as well.

Julie AG Doll

No regrets!

The AG outlet Julie does not have a black X on her bottom like the dolls from the Madison Children’s Museum sale do.  She is not returnable.

The shelf she was on had A LOT of room on it, so I wonder whether more dolls might show up in the months to come.  Hmmm.

Full report on other purchases to follow.  This post is all Julie!

American Girl Outlet, Oshkosh

We paid an Easter visit to Great-Grandma today; she lives not far from the American Girl Outlet store in Oshkosh.

Wilmot OutletUsually my opinion of the Outlet store is ho-hum.  Today they had some really unique items and fairly good prices.  I wondered whether this is a run-up to the Wilmot sale in June.

Caroline’s ice skates… very neat!

noexif_IMG_5713_privateJulie’s roller skates, $20.00.  I remember these from my childhood!

noexif_IMG_5731_privateBrianna had a gift card and picked up the Pet Hiking Set, $7.00!

noexif_IMG_5730_privatenoexif_IMG_5734_privateAnd she also found Rembrandt, Saige’s dog!  He was also $ 7.00.  Saige is still top doll around here, so it is neat for her to have Saige’s dog.

Saige RembrantI picked up Julie’s original Meet book for $1.00.  Hard-cover historical books were $3.00.  I was tempted by Addy’s new Meet outfit (without shoes) for 17.00, but something else called Addy’s name.  You’ll have to wait until her birthday on Thursday to find out what it was!

We also saw:

  • Kit’s school lunch box
  • Kit’s desk ($100)
  • Julie’s calico dress ($20.00)
  • Julie’s grill, $7.00
  • Kaya’s dog & teepee
  • Rebecca’s meet outfit and the play outfit
  • Julie’s accessories
  • Ivy’s meet outfit ($10.00)
  • One of Caroline’s cow, Garnet
  • A springtime background play scene, $7.00
  • Saige’s tunic outfit $10.00

That’s the scoop from here!
