After my recent shopping spree (which will be the topic of an upcoming blog), I decided it was time to exercise some self-restraint. Unfortunately, there was a big doll show in Atlanta this weekend. I set out with a specific budget in mind. In addition, my husband and mother-in-law each told me to purchase something for my birthday from them at the show. So I decided to only take $200 of my own money for spending.
Here is my haul:
The purchase from my husband was the Grace Kelly "My Romance" Silkstone giftset. I got it for $59. I thought that was an extraordinary deal. My dolls are waiting impatiently to get hold of these outfits!
I had been looking for some vintage outfits, and one of my bestfriends had set up a booth. She gave me the "bestfriend discount", so I was able to land this minty and complete American Airlines Stewardess outfit for $40. It's an outfit I've had my eye on for some time.
This was the first show I attended without a friend in tow. I spent less money than I planned (and even the gifts were reasonable priced!). Maybe friends are a bad influence at a doll show! Surely, no one can accuse me of that. I know at least three who would totally disagree with that statement!
