Sometime last week, my mom and I went to the thrift store just to see if they had anything doll-ish there. We checked the back first, where they have stuffed animals and sometimes dolls, but didn’t find anything interesting. Then we went to the front to look at the dolls that are behind the counter- we found an Our Generation Doll and a Bitty Baby!! We were going to buy the Our Generation Doll, but realized that it wasn’t that much cheaper than buying it from Target, so we passed on her (but yes, we did buy the Bitty Baby!). As we were looking around, still trying to find an AG doll, I looked down and saw………
Mia’s Bedroom Furniture!!!!!!! I nearly had a heart-attack!!! Unfortunately, it was $99.99. Too much money for us to spend.
But, when we bought the Bitty Baby, they gave us a coupon for 50% off anything that was only good to use Tuesday or Wednesday. So on Tuesday we went and I was hoping that the furniture would still be there! This time we went straight to the counter and there it was. I told my mom that I could put around $30 towards it, that way she would end up only spending $20- it was a deal!
So here it is!! We bought it for only $50!!! Mia’s Bedroom Furniture was originally sold from American Girl for $125 and included the chair, mattress, and pillow. All is included, except for the pillow. We also looked it up on eBay just to see how much it was selling for- I could easily sell it for around $300, but I’m keeping it 😛
The chair is so adorable and I love the roomy desk area!
The door to the closet/cabinet has a mirror inside and four shelves. This is a great piece of furniture for storing things! 😀
I have always loved this set and thought it would be such a neat thing to have, so I am VERY happy to have this!! I had a lot of work to do on it, but I am very happy with the way it turned out. I will be posting more photos of it all new and clean tomorrow and pictures of the Bitty Baby will be coming soon as well 😀
What do you think of Mia’s Bedroom Furniture?
So, today me and my mom were out doing errands and all of a sudden she said, “I have a feeling to go to the Thrift Store.” and I said, “Oh, my gosh, can we go?!” And we stopped off at the Thrift Store!!
We looked through all of the bins and I found a few dolls (not AG). One was an adorable Precious Moments Doll, but I decided not to get her because she would end up just sitting on a shelf and would never get attention. And then I found a Disney Animator’s Collection Rapunzel Toddler Doll! I kinda wanted to get her, but she wasn’t really calling to me. Then I found an 18″ Madame Alexander Doll. She was only $4.99 and I really wanted to rescue her. So when I was checking out the total ended up being $2.70!!! It turns out that all yellow tags were 50% OFF!!
I feel so bad for this doll. She’s definitely “A bit of a fixer-upper” ( 😉 )!
She has big round marks on each of her cheeks. It looks like highlighter to me.
Her hair isn’t in the best condition, but it’s not too bad.
The shirt she’s wearing is from American Girl! Anyone know what outfit this is from?
On a couple of her finger nails there’s what also seems to be pink highlighter.
I took a picture of her Style#. Do any of you know which doll this is?
I’m really excited to have my first doll rescue and to fix her up! I hope I can get her looking nice and pretty again. Well’p, it’s time for me to get to work! 😀
Have you ever rescued a doll?
