I have been told by a reputable source that their PS specifically encouraged adding Marie Grace, Cecile, Ivy and /or Ruthie to their collection ASAP if they have interest. That it is true all four dolls are exiting this year. The PS was not sure whether all four dolls would be "phased out" or if the NOLA girls would receive a formal announcement. Regardless the PS said there isn't enough stock (in this particular store) for a formal announcement.
Update* AGP Atlanta said they will be getting a few more Marie Grace dolls tomorrow, but thereafter what is in store is all their stock, no new shipments.
