Report from Wilmot American Girl Warehouse Sale, Day 2

noexif_IMG_4662_privateLast year we hit the American Girl Warehouse sale on the first day of the sale, and it was grueling.  This year we tried the sale on Day 2, with no idea of what to expect, only hoping the lines would be shorter.  We set out on the open road after our traditional stop at Dunkin Donuts.

We arrived at 9:58 am, and were shocked to find the parking lot comparatively empty, and only a handful of ladies waiting to get in when the doors opened at 10 am.  We walked right in.  Mind boggling!

They restock the sale overnight, and there was plenty of merchandise, both Bitty Baby and American Girl.  Also some Corolle dolls.  Note the Warehouse sale does not have dolls except for the mini historical dolls, which were $ 8.00.  You need to go to the Madison Children’s Museum Benefit for the regular dolls.

Not our bags, but this is a small purchase by Warehouse sale standards!!

The sales staff wear t-shirts displaying stick figures hauling huge bags around. True!

There are always plenty of AG pets for 8.00 – 10.00

Lots of items for last year’s GOTY.

There were accessory kits for Addy, Julie, and Ivy.  Also a shawl for Rebecca.

Like I said, plenty of merchandise, and easy to find.

A favorite item:  McKenna's Warm-Up Outfit.  Those are some cute shoes!  $12.00

This year there was only 1 historical doll outfit, Cecile’s yellow summer dress and bonnet.  Lots of MYAG outfits including a soccer outfit, cheerleading outfit, ski set, tennis outfit, a cello (!), and two Halloween outfits for dolls.

Alluring, yes.  Enough money in the budget, No!

We were stunned to be out of the sale by 11:15.  We decided to have our picnic lunch outside the warehouse, for old-time’s sake.

After last year’s sale we started saving $10.00 from each of my paychecks for future AG adventures.  When it came time for the sale my daughter knew exactly how much was in the AG budget!  We were happily surprised, though, that Grandma chipped in as a way to celebrate our school year.  Thanks Grandma!

Update:  We will be blogging about future Wilmot sales at our new blog “The Dolls Between Us”, so follow us there!

        It has been very hit or miss getting the dates for the sale… last year the dates came out at the end of March. I will do a post as soon as the dates are out. The last two years the sale has been the second weekend in June, but lately with American Girl it is hard to predict anything!!!
