EBay Goodies Part 1 :)

The first of my EBay Bucks purchases came yesterday, and I am completely in love!!  I have a new seller to add to my eBay favorite sellers list. :)  Her eBay username is tbiever1, and her eBay store is called Dori's Doll Boutique.  The great thing about this seller, besides her excellent track record and her quick shipping, is her combined shipping offer.  Shipping to the US is $1.99 no matter how many items you buy!  I don't know about you, but I'm always looking for good shipping deals on eBay.  So many times, I've turned something down because the shipping charge killed the good price.

So, without further ado, here are the items I purchased. :)

Don't they look adorable? :)

Piper is wearing a combination of items.  Her white t-shirt was what I got from Dori's Doll Boutique.  Her knit skirt and headband were made by eBay seller mzmelody808.  You can find my review of her outfits by following the link HERE

I was very impressed with the nice quality and even stitching on this shirt.  I'm not a seamstress, but I can tell when something is shoddily thrown together.  This shirt is not. :) 

 It closes in the back with 3 snaps.  Snaps make me nervous because I tend to go too fast and pull them apart incorrectly.  These shirts are worth it, though. :)  

I'm so happy to finally have a white t-shirt!  I think every girl needs one in their wardrobe...they're so versatile!  This one cost $3.99 plus shipping, and tbeiver1 still has lots of them in her eBay store, along with other fun colors. :) 

(Side note:  if anyone is curious, Piper's shoes are from a Madame Alexander Friends Boutique clothing set.)

And now, for my absolute favorites.  Drum roll, please!! :)

I put this outfit on Charlie and fell in love instantly!  Of course, she insisted on wearing her cowgirl boots and Buzz Lightyear necklace. ;)  She's like that. 

Isn't she a cutie pie?

Check out the detail on these amazing shorts!!  The pocket is an actual pocket.

They have snap closure and even have a zipper that really works, just like real denim shorts!

Back view.  These shorts fit Charlie perfectly, but they might be a little too snug for one of the Pre-Mattel dolls with their thicker hind ends. ;)

Charlie's shirt also has snap closure, like Piper's.  I love how cute and summery she looks. :)

The shorts were $6.99 plus shipping, and the shirt was $3.99.  So, for everything, including Piper's shirt, it only cost me $16.96!  And I liked everything so much, that (after making a sale locally), I went back and purchased another pair of shorts and another tank top. :)  Don't worry, though.  I haven't forgotten my earlier post.  It's my last splurge for a while (aside from my other eBay dress purchased with EBay Bucks that's still en route). :)   

Here's a closer look at everything: 

(Another side note:  Charlie's boots came from The Crazy Doll Ladies store, in case your doll needs a pair of her own.  ;)  I browsed the store and it looks like they may not have any in stock at the moment, but I know I've seen similar ones on eBay, too.)

My two cuties.  I'm so glad to have a few summer clothes for my dolls now!  Be sure to follow the link and check out Dori's Doll Boutique for lots more adorable stuff! :)

Gotta love the ebay bucks!
I have bought from that seller many times and have always been very happy with everything. I no longer have AG dolls, but we have a couple of similar sized dolls in our house.
Your girls looks adorable in their new duds. I recently got some great deals on dolly duds too. Check out my blog to see. :o)

Hummm . . . I've mentioned Dori's about 5 or 6 times in my blog . . . which nobody reads.

Thanks for commenting, everyone. :) Jamie, I love Charlie's Buzz necklace too. Good thing, since she NEVER takes it off! ;)

Carolyn, I'll be sure to stop by your blog. :)

AlexAndrea, I'm sorry "no one reads your blog"...except me!! ;) Good to hear from you. :)

That pink top is a cute one. I've been too afraid to venture into the world of sewing knits. Maybe one day....

I agree that a white tee is a basic necessity. Some Emily Rose @Home consultants do parties where girls can decorate tees for their dolls. It's fun for girls to be able to personalize an item.

Hi Shari! :) Thanks for commenting. The pink top is my favorite, too.

What a great idea to have t-shirt parties! :) Someday, when life slows down again, I'd love to try Emily Rose @ Home. :)
