Madame Alexander's Madeline Doll (18-inch Cloth) Is Back in Stock

We hope that all of you are enjoying this wonderful holiday season, and are able to take a few moments to embrace the true meaning of Christmas.

Several customers have contacted us recently inquiring when the Madame Alexander 18-inch cloth doll, Madeline, will be back in stock. We are happy to let you know that we received in our shipment today. She has certainly been on the must have list for several little girls and doll collectors this year!

As always, please do not hesitate to give us a call or email us if you are looking for something that you don't see on the site. We will do our best to try and find it for you.

Happy Holiday Shopping!

Marie Osmond 100 Years of Kisses Has Arrived

We are excited to announce that we have received in a limited supply of Marie Osmond's "100 Years of (Hershey's) Kisses" dolls.

These adorable dolls commemorate the 100th Anniversary of the Hershey's Kiss chocolate. When these irresistible chocolate candies were introduced back in 1907 each and every Hershey's Kiss was hand-wrapped.

100 Years of Kisses comes dressed in a chocolate brown satin dress with royal blue sleeve insets and netting. A silver and royal blue ribbon is tied around her waist, as well as her cute brunette pigtails. She holds a Hershey's Kiss in the palm of her hand and has that same cute look on her face as all of Marie's Hershey's Chocolate porcelain dolls. Incidentally, every Hershey's chocolate doll that Marie Osmond Dolls produces is sculpted by the very talented doll artist, Ping Lau.

We here at Beacon's Glow Collectibles are curious if Marie will introduce a 100 Years of Kisses Tiny Tot in the upcoming year.

Why Consumers Prefer to Shop Online Rather Than in Stores During the Holiday Season

The National Retail Federation (NRF) is the world's largest retail association. Its members include department store, specialty, discount, catalog, Internet, and independent retailers, and chain restaurants and grocery stores. Their predictions and reports are highly regarded amongst both small and large retail businesses. According to the NRF, these are the top reasons that consumers prefer to shop online, rather than in stores, during the holidays:

1. To avoid crowds (#1 reason)
2. More convenient to shop online
3. To avoid lines at the store
4. Easier to compare prices
5. Easier to find items online
6. Easier to compare products
7. Better Variety online
8. High gas prices

We found this interesting and hope that you will also.

Marie Osmond Dolls Price Match Guarantee with QVC

We here at Beacon's Glow Collectibles wanted to let all of you Marie Osmond Doll fans know that we will always match the price on any Marie Osmond Doll that QVC has to offer.

If you see a doll on QVC that you are interested in and we currently have that doll, please don't hesitate to email us (info@beaconsglow.com) or give us a call at 512-990-9881 and we will immediately match the price for that doll.

Please note that we have been informed by several doll collectors that QVC charges sales tax on all doll purchases. As mandated by the State of Texas, Beacon's Glow Collectibles only charges sales tax on orders placed in Texas.

We are receiving in Marie's new dolls on a weekly basis. It looks like Charisma Brands, the distributor of Marie's dolls, is streamlining their doll distribution after having some challenges after their warehouse move from California to Maryland. This is certainly welcome news as the wait for new doll arrivals this past summer was a bit lengthy.
