Selling a Doll Collection?

I have 19 dolls. Some say Seymour Mann (5-6), some Ashton Drake, some O. Some are porcelain and others are rubber. Maybe are handmade. However detailed & nice. Are they worth any $$?

It really depends on your collection, with hundreds of dolls for sale online, you are fighting for a spot and sale. Seymour Mann dolls are not bringing in as much $5 to $25 asking price. Ashton Drake , asking a little more depending on the doll and condition. $10 to $100 for rare and special dolls.

If you have a very large doll collection I would like to suggest that you try to sell them locally at a yard sale or even a swap meet in your area. The reason I am suggesting this one is because the online market is flooded with dolls right now and most of them are not selling at all. If you show the dolls and a small child walks buy you will have a better chance to sell them.

Most dolls these days are only bringing in a very low price of $5-15 for each doll. At a swap meet, you can do better than this and you can also lower the price if a person is interested in buying the doll. You save a lot of time and money trying to ship the dolls out after they are sold.

Doll values have been in a very slump for several years and probably will never be any better as the value is so low it's usually not worth the trouble to list them for sale. Values are low and sales are very slow even with $5 - $25 asking prices.

You would have to research each doll as some could be worth more money but this is the exception and not the rule.
Ashton Drake dolls may be slightly more valuable but not by very much and may not sell any faster.

Here is a link to listings on eBay for Ashton Drake dolls. Bare in mind this is all of this brand but if you research you can narrow the search by clicking on information on the left side of the screen.
Remember - asking prices do not represent 'value' as only a sold item can be counted as 'current value'.

Here is a link to eBay's sold dolls so you can get an idea of what people are actually paying. You can also search for your dolls on the site.

As others have suggested, you may do better selling at a yard sale but do not expect to sell them for very much money here either as dolls are just not on very many people's 'wanted list'.

These dolls do not sell for very much at your thrift stores and sales people say they sometimes have them for a year and have to put them on a 'half off' sale to sell them.
