If you want to sell locally you can use Facebook marketplace, Craigslist, letgo,offerup and similar sites.

You can sell on eBay and reach a NICU larger audience. There are fees involved and someone has to pay for shipping.

It will help to have several very good pictures of each doll and also her measurements.
You can check out eBay sold listing to see if a doll like yours has sold over the past several months. This would give you an idea of their value. Most dolls are selling for under $30.

Dolls are usually slow sellers but this is probably the best time to try to sell but be sure you calculate shipping costs correctly before listing doll for sale.

Here is a link to eBay sold dolls:
You can check all the options on the left side of the listings to see how many different items you need in description - especially size.
Research takes time.

I have been looking at different apps that people use to sell locally right now. Some of them include VarageSale and LetGo. These apps allow you to post on them like you are hosting your own garage sale at home. They sell locally so you do not have to worry about shipping costs. You can also try to use FB Marketplace to sell on. If you use eBay you may not find a buyer for a very long time. As for price the dolls normally sell for around $15 to $25 each.

Your first step is to research who you have and their current values (SOLD prices on eBay give you the best idea of value).

It may take several attempts in your search to find a match...but most times you can find the doll and then go to SOLD and see what they are selling for (asking prices gives you only what the seller thinks it is worth--SOLD tells you what some on will pay.

There are still a few valuable ones out there--unfortunately from your photo I can't quite tell who you have so I can't do more specific research.

Something to remember when doing values is you have to compare apples to apples...meaning...

You have X and she is consistently selling (SOLD prices for 100 dollars pristine in the box, never played with, original dress, certificate--basically untouched). You have X, no box, heavily played with, not the original outfit, no certificate. You are not going to get 100 dollars for yours since this is not an apples to apples match. In this case, you may only fetch 10-15 dollars.

If you are an experienced seller and if you have the high value dolls--eBay is the way to go to sell--just be sure to calculate the shipping correctly if you are in the US and use the advanced sellers tool to put the box weight and height since the new DIM shipping is a nightmare).

If you are NOT an experienced seller for the high value dolls--I suggest selling at a consigmen store.

If you have the low value dolls, I suggest selling them at a flea market, yard sale, or Facebook local marketplace are the best ways--no shipping is critical with the lower value dolls.

There are a bunch of apps out there as another poster mentioned so if you wanted to experiment, you could try them, just be sure to pick those for local pick up only. Shipping on a low value doll will is a huge turn off for buyers.

Just a word of caution for any in person sales--like Facebook or an app is safety first. Never meet someone alone, take cash only, and if your gut says something is wonky, walk away from the sale and block the person.

Post back how your sales go!! Thanks for asking!
