You could try selling on eBay, or locally to collectors.

You need to look for markings on the doll. You may have to remove the clothing to do this. A good website to go to once you have the markisngs is www.dollreference.com.

Etsy seems to have more buyers than Ebay but I'd go for both.

There have been a lot of Alberon dolls manufactured over the years and most were inexpensive when new and the value has (for the most part) decreased, the same as most dolls in this category have.

Here are the current listings on eBay for all Alberon dolls (no name for your) and the second link is what has recently sold on eBay. You may be able to find a doll like yours in some of the listings:

You did ask about about selling your dolls. I gave you some typical listings on eBay but dolls are difficult to sell on any Internet site as most of them are so plentiful and usually many of the same kind.

eBay is still the largest selling site and especially for dolls but many sellers will have dolls listed for weeks/months and even years before selling - if they ever sell. Just stating facts so you will know it is not easy to sell dolls. It is also costly to ship (which only adds to the price someone has to pay for the doll) and a lot of trouble packing to keep dolls safe. Sometimes dolls may sell faster if sold in "lots" of 2-6 but the total price per doll will be much less. and shipping is very difficult.
You may want to try your hand on Craigslist or any other local auction site as there will be no shipping and people can look at your dolls and may buy more than one. You will still need some nice photos to post/list. Craigslist is very easy to use and with this type of item it may be your best place to sell.

Generally, dolls sell better in November and December but you could be luck and find a buyer quickly.
