The best way to find the value is to look up each doll on eBay and go to the sold section to see what people are paying for them. This gives you the current market value.


Never use active auctions to set value as people can ask whatever they want, value is only what people will pay.

You need to consider shipping in the value. You can use eBays sort feature to sort lowest to highest and it will show you the dolls where the price and the shipping are the lowest to the highest. The true value is an average of all of the sold items for you exact doll.

Meaning if there is one sold for 5 + 5 shipping (value 10) and 1 sold for 1 + 5 shipping (value 6) and 1 sold for 11 (free shipping), you add these up, divide by 3 and the average value is 5.67.

Do not use like dolls if you want a some like dolls have no value and others do have value.

If your exact doll is not in the sold bucket at the moment, but is in an active auction, set up an eBay watch and see what it sells for.


The general research steps are:

1. Type the doll info into eBays search engine (sometimes you need to scale back the info and if you can't find the exact match the first time just put (the brand) and the word doll and scroll through pictures to match)
2. Click to search
3. Go to the left side of the screen and click sold auctions
4. Match your doll to the photo and that gives you the value.

One last thing, value and profit are different animals...everyone takes their fee in the process and what is left from the value is your profit.

It can be very discouraging!
