Okay, folks, here's the post I mentioned earlier. Last week, while perusing through my local Craigslist, I came across a great selection of Pre-Mattel AG stuff being sold in 4 different lots. They were way out of my price range, but it was so exciting to see that much amazing stuff near my hometown, I couldn't resist calling the seller. I asked if she'd mind if I came over and just looked at the dolls, but as she was preparing to move, they were already all boxed up, ready to go out the door with a buyer or be shipped to an out of town buyer. We had a really fun chat about AGs and our doll interests. When I heard she was willing to ship, I offered to do a post about her stuff on my blog. She thought that was a great idea, and sent me all of her pictures she'd taken and her complete inventory list.
A couple of the pictures are a little blurry, but most of them are nice and clear. All of them should give you a nice idea of what she has available.
NOTE: I have not seen the dolls in person. From the pictures they appear to be in excellent, hardly played-with condition. The seller also confirmed that the dolls are from a smoke-free home. She has a dog, but the dolls have been stored in containers with cedar chips, so they don't have pet hair on them. ;) As I haven't personally seen the dolls, I can't answer any detailed questions. If you're interested in anything, you can contact the seller directly (I've included her email address below) and ask her any questions that are important to you.
If I had a little more extra money on hand right now, I would swoop this stuff up! :) I figured if nothing else, you would all enjoy seeing such a great collection of American Girl stuff from the past! :)
