Recent AG Etsy purchase + Tips for buying items off of Etsy!

Hello everyone!
So I made a recent purchase from the store KaitlynsDollCloset on Etsy and I love these items so much! I highly recommend this shop! Also, Kaitlyn also has the cutest blog too. Make sure to check it out here.
She sews super cute and great quality clothes for American Girl dolls!
I bought two skater skirts at very reasonable prices.

I got a white one, and a black one.

Aren't the adorable?

I really love the material for the black one!

I'm super happy with my purchase and definitely recommend that you check out her shop!
I know that a lot of people are afraid of buying things off of Etsy for their dolls because their scared that they will get cheated, won't get what they asked for, etc. But Etsy is a great way to buy clothes for your dolls! You just have to make sure you are getting a good deal.

Here are a few of my tips for shopping on Etsy:

  1. Don't pay the same price for the item on Etsy as on the AG site/store. One of the reasons why you're shopping on Etsy is because the AG prices for items are too expensive right? Well, it won't be any better paying the same price as AG offers for the item on Etsy as well. You are also taking a risk of the item not being good quality. So make sure you are getting a good quality item for a reasonable price! The opinion of a good buy does depend on the person though, but just trust your instincts. ;)
  2. Read the reviews. ALWAYS read the reviews. Trust me on this, the reviews are very helpful when you need to know what the costumer service is like, and how good the quality of items are. If it's a new store and doesn't have reviews or only a couple, don't be afraid to give the shop a chance! Unless it's a really expensive item, you may want to play it safe on that one. Otherwise, if it's just a $5 item I say go for it! Just make sure you read the description of the item so you know what you're paying for.
  3. Communication. Communicating with the shop owner is always good. Don't be afraid to shoot them a message if you need any help while ordering, or have a question about a item! They're most of the time really nice while answering. ;) You'll get a nice response as long as you're nice!
  4. Know what you're paying for. Like I said in tip #2, always read the description of the item. Otherwise, you may buy a item and when it arrives you think you've been cheated by the shop owner not including that (Example) necklace that you saw in the picture listing. When all along in the item description box they stated clearly "Necklace and doll not included." So make sure you do so! It's just another something that's always good to do. Also, say you're allergic to cats or dogs when the item that you just bought was made in a home with pets, and they stated it clearly "Made in a pet friendly home" in the item description box.

Well, that's about all the tips I have for you!

I hope you found them helpful!
