American Girl Outlet – Restocked

We were off of school today as our district was closed for Yom Kippur.  We took advantage of the gorgeous fall weather to visit Great-Grandma (the same one for whom we did the doll presentation).  We may have stopped at the American Girl Outlet too 😉

The Outlet has been so tapped the last few months that you could barely call it a store.  Truly!  A few weeks ago I heard they got 6 truckloads of merchandise in, so our timing was really good today.

They still had the MYAG dolls with bangs for sale for $80.00 (see previous post for details on them).  The supply appears endless.

There was a large amount of BeForever clothing for girls.  Josefina’s tunic for girls, Kit’s, Caroline’s, Rebecca’s, Samantha’s outfits for girls.. all 50% off original prices.  Lots of sizes but not much in size 14.  Brianna also spotted the dress below, which is not BeForever, but was $5.00!  It is very well made with a slip underneath and tulle as well!  We have a wedding to go to and this may fit the bill.  (Pardon the crinkles!)

There was also Grace’s clothing for girls at what appeared to be regular prices (PJs, Paris shirt, beret, Love Sweater).

On the historical doll front, we said yes to Caroline’s meet accessories at $12.00 (hat, spinning top and Caroline Abbott bag).  Lots of those in either BeForever boxes or pre BF boxes.  We also picked up Julie’s necklace that accompanies her birthday dress for .25 cents.  The necklace my mom made is still a little cooler though!  Also picked up Rebecca’s shawl for 1.00.

Saw a few items for Kaya, Josefina’s green bed, Addy’s summer dress, 20.00, (which Brianna swore was not retired and it is – D’oh!), Cecile’s Meet accessories $10.00, Julie’s calico outfit, meet outfit and disco outfit.  Overall not a ton of historical items.

Saw Saige’s picnic set (still kicking around!), Isabelle’s jewelry case for girls, lots of Bitty, the MYAG parasail (29.00), birthday set, heart-shaped pizza set, Valentine’s t-shirt from last year (maybe 7.00?), lots of the “doll dining” and “doll travel” type of kits for $3.00, Puffy Coat (around 10-12.00), karate set, hiking trail accessories, and lots of Sparkle Star AG t-shirts from the various store locations for 1.00.

They had Isabelle’s sewing studio as well.  Not 100% sure on the price but between $120 – 140.00 as I recall.

All of the summer items that we all studied so carefully a few months ago were at the outlet (the  flamingo dress, the coral hoodie, etc.) but the prices weren’t amazing.

We had fun with the salesclerk, who was so enthusiastic and even dug through a few boxes for us thinking she saw the doll dress to match the fancy party dress we purchased.  Susan, you rock!  We enjoyed seeing their display doll for Maryellen (not sold there of course).  Susan gave us an impromptu lesson on caring for Caroline’s hair.

Dishes, 2.00

Half of the fitting rooms were filled with merchandise that was yet to be put out for sale, so overall, I think the coming weeks will be interesting at the outlet!

 

 

 

Oshkosh American Girl Outlet – Dolls with Bangs

The outlet was pretty skimpy with the MCM sale around the corner.  They still had the Julie doll, but all other historicals were gone.  But boy, did they ever have dolls with bangs!  All $80.

Other items there that were new to me were Isabelle’s barre.

Samantha’s Dog

And Kit and Samantha’s beds.  Samantha’s was over $100.  Kit’s were still in shipping boxes and some had comments in marker about lumpy foam.

IMG_6009We did not buy anything major, but did pick up some tidbits for blog giveaways.  Stay tuned for that!

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!
