Last weekend my mom and I headed out on our annual AG Store visit. The closest store to me is about 3 1/2 hours drive, so we make a weekend of it. We woke up early on Saturday and drove to the store. It was a beautiful sunny day and the drive went very fast. I brought all of my girls with me, because I didn’t want to leave anyone behind. Only 1 at a time got to come into the store to shop with me!
I met a sales associate last year, I will call her “Bee” for the story. She is a total doll expert and helps me with all my doll questions and needs. She is a “personal shopper” for this AG store. I don’t know if you were aware that you can make an appointment ahead of time to have your own personal shopper shop with you for as long as you want!!!!! Bee helped me last year, and I just loved her so much I wanted to request he again. My mom sent her an email and lucky for me she was working on the weekend we had planned our trip. Even though I knew what I wanted this year, even more then last It was nice to have Bee by my side. She helps me pick products, narrow down selections to stay in budget, goes to the back and gets things that may not be out. You also don’t have to stand in line because she takes you right up to her spot, and you check out. She even personally pierces your dolls ears if you like. She has helped me with hair styling tips( I needed help managing Rebecca’s curly hair)!
We stayed at a hotel right by the mall that offers an AG Doll package. You get a room decked out in pink everything, a travel size AG branded doll bed, blanket and pillow that you get to keep. And they even bring you Milk and warm chocolate chips cookies at night before bed. It just adds so much fun to the overall thrilling weekend.
On Sunday morning, we went back to the AG Store after a yummy breakfast of pancakes and swimming in the pool. I shopped for another hour, just taking in all the things I missed the day before. At noon my mom had made reservations to eat at the AG Bistro. For those of you who have not experienced this before, it is amazing. Your doll gets to sit with you in her very own seat, she gets a cup and saucer to keep, and special treatment. The food is really good, and I got to decorate my own Lea themed cupcakes for desert.
I had saved up my $ for an entire year and had enough to purchase Lea, so welcome Lea to the family! I also saved up enough for 3 outfits(my mom bought me a few extra Lea thing 🙂
It was a super fun trip and I hope you enjoy my pictures.
