Beacon's Glow Collectibles has been honored to be chosen as one of the Alexander Doll Company's retailers located in the South that can offer this very special "The Spirit of New Orleans" doll. This incredible 8" Wendy doll comes dressed in an exquisite purple Mardi Gras gown trimmed in gold and green. She holds a whimsical Mardi Gras gold mask. (A portion of this sale of this doll will be contributed to the K.I.D.S. Foundation which assists in providing clothing, shoes, toys, and books to those people in need, specifically Katrina victims at this time).
We have already ordered "The Spirit of New Orleans" and we are anxious to receive her. If you are interested in obtaining one of these very special dolls, please don't hesitate to contact us.
We all hope that you and yours have a safe and wonderful Fourth of July Holiday!!!

The second Christmas ornament that has already arrived is the Bear on Wheels Ornament (EAN 668609), a personal favorite of the owner of Beacon's Glow Collectibles. Bear on Wheels has been nominated for the 2006 Golden Teddy Award. This beautiful baby bear stands 4 inches tall, and wears an embroidered felt saddle and a velvet ribbon accented with a golden bell. He is second in the series of Animal Ornaments on Wheels. This adorable ornament is based on a 1952 design, and is cleverly limited to an edition of 1952 pieces.
Wouldn't it be an incredible sight to have one's Christmas tree decorated only in Steiff ornaments? :)

Definitely a case of good things come to those who wait!
Additionally, 2 new Paulinettes (Amelia and Lily) will be introduced during the August/September timeframe. (Photos are expected to be available mid-July, and we will post these as soon as we receive them.) Also, the adorable Amish Paulinette pair, Annie and Jacob, are going to be re-introduced. For those of you anxiously awaiting their return (including myself), this will be a perfect chance to add this pair to your collection.
I got the priviledged opportunity to chat with Pauline herself a couple of months back. What a sweet and dear individual. I felt honored to be able to speak with this special celebrity. Pauline Bjonness-Jacobsen has been creating wonderful Pauline dolls since the 1980's, and as can be expected, has quite a following.

Probably the most popular Boyd's item this summer is the Bug Jar with Copper Finish. There is a battery compartment contained in the lid that holds two "AA" batteries. The fireflies (aka lightening bugs depending on which part of the country you live in) fade in and out with a yellow glow. What a clever idea!

We were thrilled to finally receive these Alexander Doll Company dolls as they were scheduled to be delivered back in April of this year.
Please keep in mind that, as is always the case with the purchase of any Madame Alexander 8" or 10" doll, a Madame Alexander logoed doll stand is included free of charge with the purchase of each doll.

Incidentally, for those of you who do not already know about Beacon's Glow Collectibles, we carry many fine gift and collectible manufacturer lines to include: Madame Alexander, Lee Middleton, Marie Osmond, Ginny Dolls by Vogue, Dolls by Pauline, The Doll Maker by Linda Rick, Precious Moments dolls; Jan McLean, & Susan Wakeen Dolls; Steiff North American Exclusives as well as Steiff Worldwide Classic Collection, Robin Rive, Bearington Collection, Boyd's Collection, Annette Funicello Bears & Ganz Cottage Bears.
We also carry a nice selection of Little Dippers by Ganz; Bear Dips by Beacon's Glow; and Lang candles, but because of the sizzling summer temperatures we have been experiencing here in Central Texas, we have had to discontinue sales of these items until the Fall when the temperatures begin to cool down a bit.
Our online store carries more than 1,000 different collectible items, and we have been in business since the fall of 2003.
We love getting to meet and stay in touch with our customers, and have built several long-lasting friendships along the way. Our customers truly mean a lot to us.
