Adelaide BJD Store

Ah for those who haven't wandered past it lately, one of the little jewellery/fashion stores on the North Tce side of Hindley St is going to start offering BJDs for sale.
Currently in the window they have a little Mythdoll Yue and what might be one of the Mythdoll SDs, as well as a little assortment of boots for both MSD and SD.

Don't expect to have much of a conversation about BJDs with the staff unless you get the manager.. they have no idea what they'll be getting in other than it's a dollie.. oh and they have a folder of crochetted dresses.
However the boss as i was told apparently has a store in Sydney that does the same thing and is testing the waters here.

At the moment it looks they're pricing the MSDs at $300AU and the SDs at $600-1000 (depending who you ask) and it depends on what other companies they're expecting to sell for.. the sign on the doll has photos of Volks dolls but they might just be net grabbed photos.

yep that's the one ^__^

It had a little couch with the Yue sitting on it for a couple of weeks now but i thought it was just for display but now they have the sign on the door saying 'Super Dollfie. Coming Soon.'

Hah i was thinking about that ><

/bleh that person-who-is-not-manager-but-knows-about-the-doll said it was Volks and I ask if it was only Volks dolls and she said yeah >__>

I swear i say a Too in the album, but that could have been a Leroy.

And she said the msd was 600aud and the biggun was 1000aud =w=

I'd like to go again and find the manager this time and tell her to train her girls a bit more =_=

LOL Actually Liam goes under the LJ name of Lythias but he did mention that he gave someone an address when he went to visit.

Glad you found us though and if you're interested in BJDs you should totally come to the next meet.

Omg cool =o I want to check that out now xD What's the shop called?

Ummmm, and what about the boots? Reis still needs a pair xDD Anyone know prices, sizes?
I think I know where Hindley St is, but I'm not so sure xD I should go and have a walk down it; though I don't wanna get lost! [Which I will, because my sense of direction leaves much to be desired ;-;]

LOL i so can't remember what the shop is called i'm afraid. It's near the McDonalds and a Sushi shop ^^

The boots are nifty, and when asked i got a price range between $40-50 but that really depends on whether she was quite understanding the question.
