The Baby, the Stars Shine Bright shop in San Francisco hosts an annual Summer Tea Party. At the second annual party in 2010, they included a reservation lottery for the BTSSB collaboration dolls SD Charlotte and SD Lieselotte. Four of each were available and attendees had to apply prior to the event and indicate on their lottery application which doll they would like to win. Entries for both dolls were permitted.

- Would like the wrist joints to have better articulation, but it's kind of appropriate for the age depicted.
My wife and I attended and she entered the lottery for Charlotte while I entered the lottery for Lieselotte. At the tea party, my ticket number was drawn for Lieselotte but when the BTSSB staff referred to their entry checklist, my name had been mistakenly written in the Charlotte entry column. I was told that I could not have the doll and a new winner would be drawn. Doll people were stunned, lolita people were oblivious. The new winning number belonged to another member of our local doll group, who felt so bad about what had happened that he offered me the doll.
Adding to the weirdness, my lottery ticket hadn't been removed from the hopper and was subsequently pulled during the Charlotte drawing while my wife's ticket was not. So while my wife and I lost both the Volks lotteries and after events, we did get our girls directly from Volks via this odd little local event.
