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!

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!

Wilmot Sale 2014

Wilmot Sale 2014

I contacted the Mattel Outlet in Wilmot to see if I could get any information about this summer’s American Girl Wilmot Warehouse Sale.  I’ve been getting antsy to find out the date.  It seems like we are in school later than usual this year and we will be bummed if we don’t get to make our usual Friday girls’ trip to go to the sale.

The clerk indicated that June is likely the month for the sale in 2015.  Last year it was also June, and the year before the sale was in August.  She said they may release the date “soon” — I am dubious, though, as the Mattel Wilmot outlet website usually only has events for the coming month.

I plan to check back in early April.
