I love shopping at Hudson's stores. My grandmother loved it, my late aunt loved it. I used to not live near one, but recently moved, so now I can dig for deals regularly. Hudson's stores are where everything goes when no regular store wants it anymore. Each shipment of junk gets a tag with a batch number and the original price (you hope) and they mark things down more the longer they sit out. It's great if you only want to keep select pieces from a toy. In this case, I can sell the dresses on eBay for a fair price, and not loose all my money to eBay fees.
I don't want to make Hudson's sound completely magical. You have to check everything over completely. My dolls were in mint condition in the crushed boxes, as were the redhead Teresas I left behind. One copy of Curvy Blue had her neck snapped, though. They are also bad for mis-pricing the original retail.
$24.99 "original price" for an $8 double fashion set, with one fashion stolen. If this makes it down to 90% off, I might buy it and the unfortunate blue girl just for the shoes. Speaking of shoes, Target has dumped their Bratz stock.
Dolls, shoes, playsets, fashions, it's all there at 40% off. But regular stores had much better deals than that. I won't touch it until it's at least 80% off, but that will be a few months away, and parents might buy it all first.
