Madame Alexander Doll
I love dolls, but I have not really thought much about Madame Alexander dolls until recently. I received an email from A.C. Moore advertising a Tuesday (today) sale on the dolls for $15.84, regularly priced at $24.99. The ad also said they sell other places for $59.99. This sounded like an excellent price since I know that these dolls are normally very expensive.
I went over to A.C. Moore at lunch to try to get one. I was pleasantly surprised to see that they had them. My luck with sales usually goes like this: either they sold out the first 30 minutes, or they never had them to begin with, or they are getting some later in the day when I won't be able to go back and get one. Anyway, I was very happy and surprised to find one. I really didn't expect much since it was marked down, but this doll is really cute. I did some research on the Internet and found one site that was selling one like the one I bought for $85. I also found another site, it could have been an ebay site, that had one for $9.99, but the postage was around $17.99. The doll I bought was an 8" doll named Party Dress Wendy and in researching I found out that it has been retired. Anyway, I think I made a very good deal and I'm really excited about her. I fear now that I'm going to be hooked and looking for others.
