Disney Princess Designer Collection Journals?  
Hi everyone! So I know the Designer collection was very popular when it came out, I myself nabbed a few things off the website. However, at the time I couldn't get to a Disney Store to pick up the exclusives such as the mugs and journals.

What I was wondering is if anyone could tell me what the manufacturer price on the journals was? I can't seem to find it online. I know chances are slim to none that I'd find any for sale at that price (especially on ebay XD), but I just would like to know a starting number to tell if a price is fair or outrageous.

Thank you! :)

The journals were $19 and some change, so really around $20. Good luck, I hope you find the ones you want! :)

Alright! Thank you! Hmm, so there are a few that aren't completely terribly priced online. XD

I kind of have this crazy idea of eventually collecting them all. Then again, I'm a stationary addict.

And hey there! I've seen you around on quite a few different comms and just wanted to say it's nice to see someone who has many of the same interests!

Yea, I'm sure you'll be able to find reasonable ones this far out. Some people get tired of waiting for stuff to sell at their crazy prices and eventually drop them, lol.

I just have the 4 I really wanted, except Ariel; Jasmine, Mulan, Pocahontas and Rapunzel. I also have their mugs and dolls. I may try to pick up Ariel's journal if I can find an affordable one when I actually have monies. X3

Hi there! ^^ I recognize you first and foremost from serasell & pkmncollectors. =) I know a lot of people that are in this comm and like 3-4 other comms as well. So many friends with so much in common~ It's great! ♥

Yeah, I know there are some sets up for buy it now or best offer on Ebay that are like, $300 for all ten. If I can find a few people to order with I might see if they'd accept like, $250 since I think $25 each is pretty reasonable.

And yes, the money thing is definitely an obstacle. XD I just got back into collecting after a long break (just when I happen to be broke too) and there are so many wants! I think Jasmine, Mulan, and Tiana are my favorite designs. :) I love the dolls but they are way out of my price range right now.

I've actually just gotten back on LJ after previously said break, but I've also been on a few other sailor moon communities, shugo chara, and joined the monster high comm on my other LJ account. :3 It's a bit weird to find people with so many things in common especial since outside of the internet, I rarely find someone with one of them! But still really, really lovely!

Anywho, sorry, I'm rambling. I think it's time for me to hit the hay. If I find a good lot or an Ariel notebook for cheap I'll let you know!

Heck yea, $25 a piece is great, but even $30 would be okay for people who really, really want them. I'm partial to $25 myself. XD I would really appreciate it if you'd let me know about Ariel if you spot a good lot! Thanks~ :D

Yup yup, I know exactly what you mean. I wish I could hang out with all my internet friend IRL. Most if not all of us like Disney, Pokemon, Sailor Moon, Monster High, and other anime. XD I actually made a new friend at Target the other day. She saw me with an SS Abbey in my arms, and just came up and started chatting~ :3 She likes Disney and Sailor Moon too, and she went to WonderCon & is going to ComicCon this summer. Weeee~~ 8D

Is okay, rambling is fun, everyone does it! XD Goodnight~ :D

Ahhh, well then, I may see if people want to do a group buy sometime! I'm waiting on a few payments from that sailor moon towel pre-order (what should I do if someone doesn't pay?) and bidding on a sailor moon item I really reallllllllly want so we'll see. :)

That's awesome! I hope one day I meet someone like that. So cool that you made a new friend! Do you go to lots of conventions?

And yep, those are mine main interests too, along with comics and eighties cartoons like the care bears. Though there doesn't seem to be many communities for those except MLP.

Thankies, it is just so exciting to have someone to talk to! Most of my online friends are more into comics and video games than cartoons and collecting. :3

If someone doesn't pay, you leave them negative feedback and sell the towels to someone else. I hope you won't have to do that though. :/

Unfortunately, I am only able to go to mostly local cons. I have a family of 4, so it's impossible to fly anywhere for a convention, lol. Luckily some of the best ones in the country are only half an hour to 2 hours away; ComicCon and Anime Expo. We're going to both of them this year, and we went to ComicCon last year (dressed as Pokemon, maybe you saw?). ^_^ This year we're planning a family of ThunderCats and Monster High for CC. I can't remember if we've decided on AX costumes yet, but I'm pretty sure we did... They're just not coming to mind... OH! I know we want to do a villain theme as well because I have yet to debut my Mistress 9 costume. -_-;

Oooh, I also love 80s cartoons! My Little Pony (I love MLP:FiM), Jem & The Holograms, Care Bears, Strawberry Shortcake. Ahhhh~ Lady Lovely Locks too. ♥

If you buy them online, I would advise that you ask for a photo of the back as well as the front. I had a bad experience where someone sold me a journal that was all torn at the back and when I brought this to the attention of the seller, they (of course) denied it.
Thankfully, I had a friend who worked at DS, who was shocked to hear this and allowed me to exchange it at DS, so I got a new one.
I am just bringing this up because I wouldn't want this to happen to anyone else because while most ebay sellers are honest, there is always the odd shady seller online, too, sadly :[

Yup, killed me to buy them, but I reaaaaaally wanted them. (._.;)

Another thing I noticed about most of the journals is that the Disney Store really seemed to do a lousey job in shipping them to the stores, so that most of them are not really "perfect." All of the journals that I bought for myself from around product launch through the aftermath of Dollmagedon have a sort of scarring across the covers (like a hard object was pressed into the cover and dragged across the surface). I assume that this damage was caused by the included pens with the journals during transport to the stores. When you look at the covers head on, they are not really noticeable, but when you hold it at an angle, light will reveal them in a most obvious way.

I second that you should ask for pictures from sellers, preferably at mulitple angles, especially if they are asking for more than retail price ($19.50).
