Felicity's meet accessories come with a white round eared cap with a cinnamon ribbon, woven garters, a handkerchief, a metal bit (coin), brocade purse and coral necklace.
I love that the purse is really detailed fabric and real drawstring. It's heavy material and opens to hold her other accessories. The bit is really cute and very interesting piece of history. It came with an information card about colonial money. The garters are sweet and really looked woven but they never stay tied. The handkerchief is very pretty and fancy. My Felicity keeps hers tucked in her purse. The coral necklace is very pretty and hooks instead of claps. The ribbon on the round eared cap somehow bled into the rest of the brim of the cap and no amount of Oxy-cleaning or Wooliting would take it off. I got a replacement cap and the replacement cap brim isn't as tightly gathered as the original 1992 cap. The cap fits looser on Felicity's head as well. This is a very pretty set but nothing is really in the stories so my Felicity never uses her accessories.
Elizabeth (Susanna) loves the purse and coral necklace. They match her ballgown beautifully!

Why do you love them so much? What makes them great?
I just recently compared my original purse to the new ones at the American Girl Doll Store in Atlanta. I am amazed at the difference in detailing. The original purse is GORGEOUS! The new ones are just cheap looking. There is no comparison!
I thought I should post a photo that actually shows the mob cap. The set is quite beautiful, especially the pleated mob cap and coral necklace. My ebay copy did come in the maroon box, but the detailing of the purse indicates it probably is Mattel.
