i know some of you are into blythe. i have two dolls i am looking to sell, as i have way too many hobbies. they are being neglected.

they don't have boxes, but they do have all their clothes/accessories. i have never used them or really had a chance to play with them at all. they merely sat on the shelf for a couple years.

one is a "groovy groove", and the other is a "tweedly do".

where do you think is the best place to sell these, and about how much should one ask for one, if it's w/o a box? is ebay good? or are there other good places?

thanks!

the best place to sell them will be at the this is blythe forums...or at least it used to be the best (it's been a while since i've been)

your GG is probably worth quite a bit, even without it's box, because she's fairly rare. there is a used one on ebay for $230 right now, but the girls at the TIB forum should be able to give you a better idea of how much she's really worth. i wish i could take her in, but my two blythes are quite neglected right now, too, as i have a new overly expensive obsession!

i'm a member of a private blythe forum -- i can put a message there on your behalf if you like. there's also the large public this is blythe forum (TIB)where you can sell dolls. ebay is probably the best in terms of selling to a stranger because TIB doesn't really have a feedback system. (i know most of the people on the private forum so i would feel comfortable recommending them as buyers.)

as for prices, there's a database that as far as i know is pretty current.

groovy groove is here: http://fishberryjam.com/blog/blythe-pricing/neo/f-l/
tweedly do is here: http://fishberryjam.com/blog/blythe-pricing/neo/r-y/

those prices are mostly for dolls that have never been removed from their box, but in my opinion having the clothes/accessories is more important than the box anyway. you can also do an ebay search for recent sales to get an idea of the going rate.

thanks for all the tips (both of you!). i knew someone would know! :P

i think i may try ebay b/c it would be easiest, maybe?

interestingly, i just looked up "tweedly do" and saw this listing:

http://cgi.ebay.com/NEO-Blythe-Tweedly-Do-TRU-Ex7-Toyrus-Ltd-Nude-Doll_W0QQitemZ300146124182QQihZ020QQcategoryZ36546QQssPageNameZWDVWQQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

they started it at 99cents and it's already over $100, and she seems to be nekkid! is that normal? i know not too much about this sort of thing!

yeah! EBAY IS GREAT! I sold 2 pullips on there without their boxes & did well. The thing is all the people on Blythe boards will scour ebay for any blythes that show up, so that's a GREAT place to sell them!

yes, just moving across town to a bigger place.

i am here typically: http://www.bitsandbobbins.com/journal

but i knew there were some blythe peeps hanging around back on LJ so i thought it might be the most prudent place to post a query on such.

I would definitely do ebay. It offers way more protection to you as a seller than a listing on TIB or elsewhere. You do have to pay the fees associated with ebay and paypal of course, but I think it would be worth it.

My dolls have been neglected lately too, but I'm still really into them. I know the feeling when you have to downsize hobbies, and I think it's really healthy to take a look at things and figure out what you do or do not want to put energy into.

I bought one at a thrift store and sold it on ebay for $600 so I would say ebay works.
