As it turned out, TRU was out of B.F.C. Ink dolls and had been for sometime. Discouraged by this news, I went off to see what I could find, and I ended up coming away with this:
In addition to the pink wig I saw this wig, this wig, this outfit set, and a jewelry set. But best of all was Gavin. I finally saw him today, for the first time since his release! He's very attractive, almost like a grown-up version of LIV's Jake. Yes, I do believe I've FINALLY found a place where I can get things for my Tristen. Hopefully I can get back there before all the other stuff is sold out.
Now, an update on my blog entry regarding Lala-Oopsy dolls. I saw two of them at TRU today; Princess Nutmeg and Princess Anise were both there, and they were both cute. I did not think to photograph these unusual creatures for posterity, but I did get a good look at Princess Nutmeg through the box. Here's what they look like in the box (please note that this is NOT the doll I saw at TRU; photo credit goes to lalaloopsydollhouse.com):
Speaking of flops, sweeping change of subject. The entire time that I was scouring the shelves looking for bargains, discounts, and rare finds, my sister and her boyfriend were talking with the manager of the store. Remember back at the beginning when I said that Manager and Sister are friends? Apparently they are pretty close, because Manager promised to hold back any B.F.C. Ink dolls that she might come across...AND she said she might let me have one free of charge! As an added bonus, she also told my sister that I'm not the only one who has come into TRU searching for B.F.C. Ink dolls. Apparently their discontinuation made them popular with collectors, so now I feel less like a complete dolt for having waited. I only feel like a partial dolt. LOL
Whatever happens, I'll keep you posted.
Tristen says bye-bye!
