So I (temporarily) signed up for eBay text messages because... coupon. Yes, eBay is offering a coupon to "Save $3.00 on a purchase of at least $3.01" when you subscribe to its text notices and I figured that I could use this promotion to score either a free or cheap 18" Doll item.
I was not disappointed. I scored an American Girl® Blossoms Collar and Leash Set, which normally goes for $12.00 MSRP at AG (item may be retired as its no longer on site) for only $1.96 OOP ---after coupon + eBay Bucks! (A vendor in the States has the set listed for $4.99 and it should arrive within days.)

I don't know that the "rhinestone flowers" on the collar are to my personal taste (these are TOO cutesy and IRL I probably wouldn't purchase such a set for my own pet), but I understand it fits with AG brand character. Apparently, AG Pets like frilly items, or so AG Designers think. I'm hoping this set will fit (at least) one of the 18" doll-sized pets, including AG Sandy the Dog, that I have in my collection.
I'll make it work and make DIY alterations, if necessary. Beyond the sparkly oddities on the collar, the rest of the set is nice looking. I like the plain branded leash, the tiny pet nametag and the adorable miniature butterfly charm quite well. This seems a decent AG Pet Set for $1.96. Thanks, eBay! Another Doll's Christmas Gift down!
