Literally hundreds of items to sell including clothing, books, furniture, and accessories that were purchased new at an American Girl warehouse sale.

These dolls are like new, but have a small “x” (the size of a small ant) on their bottom (see pictures of one of the dolls). They are a great deal and awesome for children to play with, but I wouldn’t recommend them for doll collectors. We should have hundreds of items for sale, but limited quantities!!! We will also have a limited number of Ivy dolls available (again, with the small “x”, but they also have a small green stain on one of their legs from the dye of her green pants . . . most cloths and tights cover this blemish). We also have lots of children’s clothes, toys and books. We’re also selling many designer brands of clothing and shoes for children and adults.
