I had this post all planned out how I was hoping it would go, but then a wrench was thrown in the mix. My sister gave me two of the cutest pairs of shoes for my American Girl dolls for Christmas. Before Christmas, she had sent me some pictures of the most adorable boots and shoes I’ve ever seen on her phone…little yellow and black bumble bee rain boots, red and black rubber boots with flowers on them, purple boots, blue boots, all sweeter than the pair before. The shoes came from the Dollie & Me Outlet store in Gettysburg, PA, but they weren’t exclusive Dollie & Me brands. They were so adorable and so different from anything you can find on most dolly sites. I was thrilled and this is how I played it out in my mind… I was going to call the outlet store in PA and ask if they could send me a couple pairs of shoes for a giveaway or maybe offer a coupon code for my subscribers to get some at a discounted price. The sales clerk that I talked to first sounded so excited which made me excited, but she said she would have to talk with her manager. Well, I waited and waited and finally decide to call her myself. She told me there were no pictures of the shoes and boots that she could send me and didn’t seem that interested in trying to find a way to offer anything to anyone. I was SO SO disappointed…not for myself, but for you all!
If you go on the Dollie and Me website you will see the little girls outfits and with each one you get a free 18″ doll outfit. There are some cute little sets on there. If you go down to the bottom of the page you’ll see a category called Dollie Accessories. If you click on it, you’ll see the shoes, but they aren’t the “cute” ones like I was telling you about. They don’t advertise them on their site because they aren’t their brand. So my post will only feature the two pairs of shoes that my sister sent me…(Boo Hoo!)
Like I said, I had this all planned out in my head….there would be giveaways, and discounts and maybe they’d even want to sponsor my blog…but I guess not! I have my two pairs and have none to offer you…Sorry, but I’m keeping these.
DON’T FORGET: Tomorrow I’ll be drawing out 2 subscriber names and those 2 winners will receive a pair of fingerless gloves for their American Girl doll. I’ll do the drawing at 10pm tomorrow evening to give everyone all day to become a “last minute subscriber!” You can read all about it HERE. I’ll announce the winners in my blog post Thursday!
See you tomorrow,
