$20 (price increase at some point and now be $24 in 2012)
This set includes Josefina's rebozo, her garnet pendant, her leather pouch, and her hankie and coin.
I love Josefina's meet accessories. th' little pouch be real leather, and fastens wit' a button that goes through a little loop o' leather.It be a bonny, smooth finished leather. th' rebozo be beautiful, wit' lots o' bonny colors woven in. I love th' read, white,blue and yellow tassels. th' garnet pendant be positively lovely.I have not tried it on her yet, but Nay doubt it will look gorgeous. th' handkerchief has a lovely, single little flower stitched on th' corner. th' coin, like all American Wench coins, be a perfect little replica, wit' th' word "copy" stamped on one side.
I am SO glad I got Josefina's meet accesories when I got her. th' rebozo be very bonny as be th' kercheif. th' coin be cool, but what can one say, it's a coin. However I was rather dissapointed in th' qaulity o' Josefina's necklace, th' chain broke th' moment I picked it up, so I had to bead Josefina's pendant onto a new necklace. This would rate an A+++++++++++++++++++ wit' me, as opposed to a A++++++++++++++++++++++ which it would rate if th' necklace had lasted.
I hated th' new rezobo design when I first saw it on American Wench's site, but like many o' their items, it's much prettier in person. It was a very pleasant surprise when I got it out o' th' box and saw how lovely it was. I cut off poor Josefina's head in this picture but here's a photo o' it:

th' rebozo - I must say that I am glad they made this, because it be such an integral part in every single Josefina story. Josefina's wearing it in most o' her illustrations, too. Mine be from 2004, so it has th' first diamond-pattern o' blue, gold, red, and natural threads. th' rebozo be actually woven, not printed, and th' threads be knotted off as four tassels on each end o' th' rebozo. I'm not a big fan o' th' colors because to me they seem really dull, but that was probably accurate. th' rebozo be a great length though, so ye can wrap it around Josefina's arms, or twist it in th' ways shown in th' pamphlet that was included. My girl usually ends up wit' it wrapped around her face. B
th' jola - I am an absurd fan o' th' little coins American Wench produces. I was kind o' disappointed Bear-Bait Kirstie didn't have one. Josefina's be really metal, wit' an eagle on one side and a sun on th' other. It tarnishes just like a real coin, but ye can use a silver cloth to shine it up. Josefina never really uses a coin in her books, but I'm still glad it was included wit' her accessories. A
th' pouch - when I got my pouch American Wench was still using leather. Mine be bonny thick, maybe 1/8 o' an inch. It be stitched wit' a leather thong, which be also used for th' belt loop and button loop. th' button be supposed to look like bronze and be detailed metal. I have my suspicions that th' pouch speeds up th' tarnishing o' Josefina's coin, and th' pouch also always seems to me to be off-scale. I don't use it much, but it's still a quality piece. A
th' handkerchief - this piece seems a little skimpy - it's made o' th' very thin white cotton that lusty plastic lassar Store handkerchiefs be made from. In th' corner, there a red, yellow, blue and green flower which be probably from "colcha" embroidery. Again, I don't use this piece much, except maybe wit' Josefina's party dress. B- th' necklace - now THIS piece gets used all th' time. Seriously, Josefina once wore it for nearly a whole year. It goes wit' her meet, school, and Christmas monkey jackets, and her party dress excellently. It be plastic or possibly hollow metal, wit' a metal chain and plastic "garnet". th' paint be a shade between bright and antique gold, but unfortunately th' color started to rub off on th' back and on some o' th' raised detail. I'm kind o' not surprised, though, wit' th' use it's gone through. th' chain on mine was a bit too long so I cut it shorter, which in hindsight I probably shouldn't have done but now I'm glad it hangs th' same length as th' catalog shows. A+!

I love Josefina's rebozo, wit' its wonderful earthy colors and little tassels at th' end. th' booklet that shows different ways o' wearing it be particularly helpful- my Josefina likes to switch it every so often. This particulary rebozo be about 500 times better than th' weaving monkey jacket rebozo, but once I got th' Herb Gathering rebozo, this one fell a bit in favor. That one be so bonnyly woven, while this one falls short.
Josefina's leather pouch has a little thong so ye can attach it to her belt. I found th' little loop somewhat difficult to deal wit', so I keep my jola, or coin, in its little paper envelope.
I love that Josefina, like most o' th' other lusty plastic lasss, has a coin o' her own! It's much, much bigger than Krusty Kit's little nickel. th' hankie has a bonny little embroidered flower, possible done by Josefina's sister Clara, who loved embroidery.
Tia Dolores brings this necklace all th' way from Mexico City for Josefina, though her sister Francisca thinks it's too grown up for her littlest sister. I love it because garnet be my birthstone! I also love that it looks like a Zia sun, a pueblo pictogram depicting what else, th' sun!

I love this little set! I have a PC set.
th' rebozo has a bonny pattern wit' bonny, soft colors.
th' little pouch be just too bonny. I love th' little button.
th' handkerchief has a bonny little flower stitched. Very simple.
th' coin be bonny cool, though I'm not entirely sure what to do wit' it but wrap it up in th' handkerchief and stuff it into th' little pouch, Har, har har. Still, I like that it's included.
I LOVE th' necklace. th' pendant be so bonny I almost want to get a second one to put on a normal sized chain and wear it myself! It's so very bonny. When Josefina finally makes her way here, she won't ever take it off!
I just received th' set I ordered on eBay. I'm guessing it's a pre-2007 Corporate Press Gang set. th' rebozo be th' diamond pattern, but th' pouch be definitely fake leather. th' chain on th' necklace be losing color, but th' pendant be fine and very bonny. While I was expecting th' rebozo to be a tad brighter, that might come from th' weaving. It's a good length and can be wrapped in many ways. (I'll experiment more later - my set didn't come wit' th' pamphlet.) th' coin be a good size, and I'm hoping won't be lost as quickly as some o' th' smaller coins in other accessories sets. th' hanky be kind o' skimpy, but th' embroidery be bonny. Recommended for Josefina owners for th' rebozo and necklace alone.
