Featured Etsy Shops

Etsy is a dark vortex for my sanity and my money because once you discover the wealth of creativity and options that other talented people make, you can never go back! ^_^ With that said, it can be overwhelming to slog through the mass of options available on Etsy for your dolls. That's why every other week, L&L will feature some of our favorite Etsy shops that create for American Girl scale dolls!

Note: We do not get paid for featuring any shops.

Current Featured Etsy Shop (Jan. 18, 2016):
Jinjia Mixed Goods
Jinjia Mixed Goods, created by Cassie Waldrop, is one of the only Etsy shops to carry a selection of AG doll scale books, that can actually be read! The books cover many genres and include fairy tale books as well as textbooks, such as the historical McGuffey Readers.

  1. Hello - My shop, WeeCouture.Etsy.com features many outfits designed for American Girl dolls as well as the opportunity to create custom replicas of special occasion dresses such as flower girl or first communion dresses. I specialize in very detailed, dressmaker quality outfits, including historically accurate designs, correct scale prints and trims, and am proud that machine stitching never shows because I love to hand sew.
