Madame Alexander Fall 2007 Collection - Sneak Peek

We here at Beacon's Glow Collectibles are anxiously awaiting the arrival of our Alexander Doll Company 2007 Fall Catalog. We have already received several requests for this incredible and exclusive line of dolls.

Please read what the Alexander Doll Company has to say about their Fall 2007 Collection"

"This is an extremely exciting time for The Alexander Doll Company. We have put together a beautiful collection of limited edition, holiday, couture and licensed product for our 2007 Fall Collection. You can tell by the cover that this isn’t an ordinary collection. It’s the 75th Anniversary of the Radio City Christmas Spectacular and we are celebrating with three beautiful limited edition Rockettes. All three wear vintage costumes and are a collector’s dream. After a record sell-out, the five Desperate Housewives™ beauties from Wisteria Lane are back in a second limited edition as well. For all of our Wendy and Maggie fans, we have surprises for you too. Our first ever Raggedy Ann and Andy™ Wendy Set makes it’s debut along with a new Lullaby League Munchkin straight from Oz. Madeline™ and Eloise™ are back again along with our personal favorites, A Christmas Story™ and Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer! Our Fall 2007 Catalog has the very best Easter, St. Patty’s Day and Valentine’s Day dolls we have ever designed. It’s always a good idea to order them early since we typically run short. And don’t forget to order your Halloween dolls now. Finally, look at the precious Festive Wishes Huggums and matching Holiday Homecoming First Steps that grace our back cover."

Please stay tuned for the upcoming opportunity to purchase these Madame Alexander dolls at Beacon's Glow Collectibles.

Marie Osmond Rag-A-Muffin Dolls

Due to several special requests from our valued customers, Beacon's Glow Collectibles will soon be carrying Marie's Osmond's Rag-A-Muffin collectible dolls. This adorable collection of dolls are 5 inches (seated) and sit inside a coordinated muffin cup. Each is specially dressed in a color-coordinated outfit representative of the type of muffin they are (e.g., Banana Nut, Blueberry, Strawberry Cheesecake, etc).

Beacons Glow Collectibles will be carrying all twelve Rag-A-Muffin collectible dolls. In addition, we should be receiving in October of this year (2007), Marie's Rag-A-Muffin Baker's Rack. This 4-shelve metal rack is perfect for displaying twelve Rag-A-Muffin dolls.

All twelve dolls should be in stock and ready to order shortly, with the exception of "Christmas Morning". Both "Christmas Morning Rag-A-Muffin" and the Rag-A-Muffin Baker's Rack are expected to arrive sometime in October. We plan on keeping all Rag-A-Muffin dolls in stock as this should not be a problem since these dolls are a Marie Osmond open edition series of dolls.

Boyd's Collection "Olivia LaRouge" To Arrive Soon

Beacon's Glow Collectibles is fortunate to be receiving in the Boyd's Collection Summer 2007 show Exclusive, Olivia LaRouge.

She is a wonderful teddy bear dressed in a satin floor-length dark blue dress with gold-embroidered pattern along the skirt of her dress. Her sophisticated bear look is made complete by a gold satin handbag and white faux fur mink stole. A must for any Boyd's Collector!

We have recently received a sneak preview of Boyd's Christmas inventory items, and there are so many wonderful new products. Boyd's, in conjunction with Jim Shore, is debuting a new Christmas line of bears. In addition, there are decorative matching Christmas trees in Jim Shore's distinctive style to go along with the teddy bears.

Additionally, there are some very nice plush pieces and well as Christmas and holiday-themed resin figurines.

Boyd's is introducing some very nice plush lines this Fall that Beacon's Glow Collectibles will be carrying:

  1. Homespun & Heartfelt Collection (an old-fashioned Americana Country collection in shades of burgundy, navy blue, and ivory). In fact, we will be carrying Betsy Quiltbeary who is an Americana folk art inspired rag doll sure to be popular.

  2. Victorian Country Collection (a group of bears in rich plum and sage green tones with floral corduroy outfits)

  3. Whimsical Winter Collection (A group of bears, moose, and snowmen nicknamed "The Flurries") A great collection to add to your winter decorating.
Beacon's Glow Collectibles is considering the addition of "Charming Angels" to our Boyd's line-up. If you are interested please email us to let us know of your interest.

Permanent Price Reductions Taken on Many Inventory Lines

Happy Spring! (Although Summer is quickly upon us. . . June 21st is the first day of Summer by the way). Spring in Central Texas has been an unusually wet one, but everything remains very green which is a most welcome change.

Just to let you know, permanent price reductions have been taken on several of our inventory lines. We made this decision after realizing that putting these items on special with our Monthly Specials makes the timing difficult for some our our customers. We will also be getting in new Summer and Fall inventory in the near future and could sure use some more space for this new inventory.

These five lines listed below are either unavailable to order any longer due to reasons beyond our control, or we have made the decision to phase out these lines. (The new pricing is 25 - 30% off manufacturer's suggested retail prices (MSRP)).

Those inventory lines are:

  1. Annette Funicello Collectible Bears
  2. Doll Maker Dolls - Linda Rick
  3. Ganz Collectibles
  4. Jan McLean Designs Dolls
  5. Robin Rive Bears

We have also decided to reduce both pre-2007 Bearington, Boyd's Bears, and Lee Middleton Dolls in stock.

As always, thank you for your continued patronage at Beacon's Glow Collectibles!
