Yesterday, I went to the thrift store and I found and saw some pretty awesome stuff! I got a ton of AG stuff (alright, maybe not a ton, but still a lot!)
First, I got Ginger, the cat! I've always loved her unique eye patch and her appearance, but I never got the chance to get her, and now that she is retired, I considered it a pretty lucky find! She wasn't new in her box or anything, but I think she is nearly in mint condition, looking as though she had rarely been played with or was maybe once a collector's item in their collection.
This picture is pretty strange looking, I know, but It is to give you an idea of her fur texture. It feels similar to Licorice's fur texture, so it is nothing new or different. The coloring is though, which is SO cute!
Sorry for the shadow, but this is her tail! It, like Licorice's tail is wire and can bend into countless positions.
One more pic of her face!
The next item.......
SANDY THE DOG!!! Yep, that's right, Kailey's dog Sandy! He is pretty rare, I think, so I nearly screamed - well, I guess I did scream when I saw him. He isn't obviously AG at first glance, so everyone looking for AG stuff passed by him without even looking!
His paws are bendable and made of wire, which is great - flexibility is always a plus! Not only that, but one of his front paws actually, if pressed, makes him bark. However, to replace the batteries, you have to rip his seams apart, so I will not use this feature too often as I don't want to go through all that seam-ripping trouble. XD
His (or I guess it's a her - I am NOT good with keeping track of hims and hers when writing about animals XD), bandana is framed in a beautiful AG logo that I've never seen before.
His unique face with little eyebrows, tiny freckles, and everything!
Full image of her! She is quite big and dwarfs Ginger and most of the other cats and dogs (the only one who is bigger than him are my 2 horses and Garnet the calf)
I also purchased the Jess book because it is one of the only ones not in my collection, and I've never really read this book all the way through! I absolutely love AG books and if anyone is interested I could give a tour of my AG book shelf!
I also got a........CHRISTMAS TREE! I've wanted one for forever and I finally got one! I am so excited for the holiday season so that I can do plenty of photostories and other activities with it! This picture isn't great of it, but it'll look great this holiday season!
It is considerably taller than Jasmine, which is perfect, because rarely is the child taller than their family's Christmas tree! XD
Here is Jasmine with Sandy & Ginger! The 3 of them look great together!
didn't think it was such a great deal as the doll was $9. (I know, an expensive thrift store when it comes to dolls XD)
Anyway, I am so happy with my purchase and so thankful! I don't think that I could've found better things to purchase and I am excited because they have given me photostory inspiration (though the cameras are dead XD)
Note: If the pictures in this don't show up at all or don't show up right, it is because I'm experimenting with pictures from my mom's new Iphone. Please give feedback on how the pictures show up (or don't show up XD).
