UPDATED WITH WINNER!! Congratulations Valorie!

Congratulations Columbus, Ohio! You are now another fabulous American Girl lovers chosen destination!! The American Girl store in Columbus officially opens its doors today, however, a few of our readers visited the store earlier this week during the “soft launch” to take a sneak peek or two. Sue and her daughter Ellie, not only visited the store and shared some awesome photos with us, but they also want to sponsor a Doll Diaries giveaway – how cool are they? 

They mailed me a secret package that arrived yesterday and it contained something for our dolls and something to giveaway to you.

Ruthie is modeling the new American Girl Columbus souvenir t-shirt that Sue and Ellie sent us – a big THANK YOU!!! And Ruthie is holding up the prize for one lucky Doll Diaries reader – an American Girl Columbus souvenir t-shirt, the new stick on earring set for dolls and a doll sized American Girl shopping bag.

Here is another look.
