Dolls, Dolls, Dolls!
I'm baaacckkk! Did you miss me? I missed you guys. I know I haven't been gone long, but it feels like it's been a lifetime. I had to take a little time to address some personal family issues. All is taken care of now, so it's back to the dolls. Somehow I managed to buy more dolls even during my blog absence. Everyone was having sales, and I was able to get free shipping in a couple of cases. You know how much I hate getting dolls on sale, but then losing all the savings to shipping charges.
This box was left on my doorstep yesterday. What in the world?! I don't remember ordering anything that would require a box this big. I checked and it was from Mattel.
Upon opening the box, I realized that Mattel had lost their minds.
Why on earth are they shipping my three items in a box this size? I can't imagine that they didn't have something a little smaller.
Mattel is having a holiday sale that includes free shipping on orders over $25. So I picked up a few clearance items. First up is this Monster High Cafe set. I've had my eye on it ever since it came out. It was on clearance for $10.99.
I was finally about to get the Twist and Twirl, complete with a Stacy doll, for $12.99.
The only Twilight doll on clearance was this one for $10.99. I bought her mainly for her cute little outfit. I can't wait for one of my ladies to sport this one.
D7ana, at A Philly Collector of Playscale Dolls, did a post about a Mixis Doll sale good until the end of today, 12/13/13. Hope you see this post in time to catch the sale. They have their Mixi dolls on sale for $19.95, original price about $59. I bought the two you see below.
This is Emerald from the Limited Edition. She has articulated arms and click knees. All of the dolls from the Limited collection are articulated this way.
I also got Rose from the First Edition. She is my favorite from both collections, and even though she doesn't have any articulation, I had to get her.
Moving on.....Barbie Collector.com is having a shipping special for orders over $25. I still had my $20 off coupon that I needed to use, so I ordered the two dolls below; Jennifer Lopez and Hunger Games Peeta. I was able to get the two of them, with my coupon and free shipping, for $34.90.
It's warming up a bit here in Atlanta, which means I will be able to spend more time in my doll room. So I plan to post a story or two this weekend. I will also be catching up on my blog reading that I am a little behind on. Have a great weekend!
