My fellow budgeting, decluttering, and meal-planning friends, cast your eyes away while I take a moment to talk to American Girl doll bloggers about the American Girl Outlet Store, located in Oshkosh, WI near the Experimental Aircraft Museum. When you consider the Wilmot Warehouse Sale, the Madison Children’s Museum doll sale, and the Oshkosh outlet store, Wisconsin is quite the location for AG deal-seekers to make a pilgrimmage. There are some deals to be had for sure, and other items at the Outlet are not priced far off the catalog.
There were many huge boxes with Julie’s VW car, at the still-astonishing price of $ 350. At the Wilmot Warehouse sale this same item was $ 175.00. In fact, there were many Julie items, but none priced to move quickly.
The best deal is the American Girl books, all generally 50% off sticker price. This includes the illustrated historical fiction before they switched to the BeForever books, and activity and quiz books.
Two things got our attention recently. Saige’s welcome t-shirt, $ 2.50. A nice price! I also saw Saige’s wrap bracelet for girls which I believe was around $6.00. Another find was Addy’s birthday dress, retired in 2013. The boxes contained all items originally sold with the outfit, including the pointelle stockings and a brown and cream snood. Price was $ 14.00. The sewing detail on this blouse and dress blows me away. This item came home with us, paid for out of my personal fun money of course!
There were definitely a few Ebay folks there–some items at the Outlet do have limits on how many can be purchased. I can see how this can be an income stream, but that is too much risk for my taste.
Other items include Bitty Baby clothing, AG clothing for girls, (including Saige’s sweater and a number of BeForever clothing for girls’ items), and clothing for retired Cecile and Marie-Grace.
There are no dolls, of course. The only place to buy those on discount is the Madison Children’s Museum sale.
If you are in the area, it is worth a stop to be sure. Personally, I think only the Wilmot Warehouse sale has prices to warrant a road trip.
