And this is …. Riley

Riley has found a new home! Thank you!

Hello there! This isn’t the doll raffle – this gal is for sale. To enter the raffle, please go here to enter.

I’m trying something new tonight. I’m posting Riley here for sale ($130 USD). If you are interested in purchasing this lovely little lady – just leave a comment. I will leave comment’s open for 24 hours and then choose Riley’s new family by using a Random Number Generator. Once a comment is chosen, I will then contact the buyer and arrange payment. Easy! I’m looking forward to see how this will work, if it goes well I will post several dolls on the blog per week . Not to worry – I will still have my uploads on the website – I just thought this is another way for people to have access to the dolls without having to go through the whole upload process. Comments will close on Thursday Feb 25th at 8pm – I will contact the buyer then.

A little about Riley. She measures about 15″ tall and is handcrafted using cotton interlock for skin and stuffed with cozy and warm wool. Her light brown hair is made from mohair and wool yarns and can be styled in a multitude of ways. Her eyes are blue and her skin is fair. She is wearing a cotton tshirt, skirt, underpants and wool felt shoes.

Thanks for looking!
Christina

What a great opportunity! Thanks, Christina! I’m new to this, and after sitting through 2 crazy fast uploads, I really appreciate this extra, more relaxed chance at purchasing a doll (and such a pretty one at that). Of course, if this doesn’t work out, I’ll be back next Wednesday for the weekly madness. :-)

Roger - February 24, 2010 - 9:23 pm

Please select my number and put me out of my misery. I don’t want my wife to go into early labor if she does not get one of these dolls. I would perfer that she spend her time more productive (or relaxing) rather than waiting anxiously refreshing the webpage every 30 seconds in hopes to have an opportunity to spend $130 on a doll. She is contemplating a new ISP to improve internet speed to reach the checkout faster than the other crazy women. Please stop this madness!

Jenny - February 24, 2010 - 9:24 pm

I love her too. Thanks for trying this.

Melissa Scamuffa - February 24, 2010 - 9:24 pm

Elisa - February 25, 2010 - 10:17 am

what a terrific idea! also kind of interesting to finally be able to quantify (kind of!) how many mamas (and papas and grandparents and angels…) are actually out there all bidding for these lovely bambolettas… anyway, I love how thoughtful and creative you’re trying to be around providing luckless mamas out there w/ different opportunities (giveaways, this adoption/sale ‘raffle’, the idea of a waitlist) to maybe finally snag a bambo.

Julie Vila - February 25, 2010 - 10:24 am

I have to enter too! Adorable!

Sarah Burnett - February 25, 2010 - 4:50 pm

Hello! I would love to be in the running to buy Riley – I am in Australia and always seem to be asleep when you upload your new dolls, funny about that! Its a great idea to give us all another way of buying one of your beautiful dolls. We have until June for my daughter’s 3rd birthday! Here’s hoping and fingers crossed!
