I’ve decided I need to stay out of Dollar Tree. It’s hard though, it’s only 5 minutes from my house and I go there frequently for dog treats and a few other food items that they sell in small quantities. Lately they seem to have a lot of stuff that is just perfect scale for American Girl dolls, I’ve really lucked out.
Last Saturday I wanted to run over to get frozen taquitos to have around for lunches, salami and dog treats. I also wanted some hair clips since Rebecca’s hair seems a bit unruly without a barrette and I wanted to put the one that came with her away for safe keeping. I remembered seeing a huge selection of hair care stuff there on previous visits, I figured this would be a great place to start. I was right!
I got a card full of each of these for $1 each, this is only part of what I got. They are the perfect scale for what I needed too. Score!
That was it for this trip. About a week later I needed to make another trip to pick up more dog treats, bleach and a few other odds and ends. I also had gotten an idea in my head of something I could make with more of those little drawers, so off to Dollar Tree I went. Unfortunately all the little drawers were gone 😦 I did find some other stuff though! First, this cute little solar lamp that will be so perfect in my bedroom diorama:
I had been looking for small containers like this for several weeks, I had an idea for something. They are each just slightly over 1″ tall and wide. When we were on vacation I had been collecting teeny tiny sea shells to use in my Living Locket. I got a little carried away since I wasn’t 100% sure which ones were going to fit the best. I didn’t want to throw them out after I had picked out the ones I wanted to use, and then I thought they would be perfect for Samantha’s bedroom as a memento of a trip to the beach!
I’m debating on decorating the little container, just haven’t decided exactly what I want to do. The rest will come in handy for jewelry making storage as well as other AG and Sunshine Family things. And between both trips, I really only spent $6, so I wasn’t too bad. I’m contemplating a trip to a Dollar Tree about 20 minutes away to see if they have any more of those drawers, that idea I have just won’t go away.
What did you find for your dolls this week?
