I have collected dolls for many years. The best way to sell your dolls is to have a auction in your home. Less stress on you and the dolls.


You will need to find a good auction company in your area. I wish you a lot of good sales.

Best way is to go auction. I have a doll collection and I have gone through Theodore Bruce Auctioneers in Australia - don't know how they will go but they have catalogued for me and will be seen by a lot of countries. Check if you have auctioneers there who might do the same.

I have a large porcelain doll collection as well. I rang an auctioneer in Australia Theodore Bruce who specialises in overseas buyers as well as in Australia. I delivered my dolls and they catalogued and put a fair estimate on those dolls which I did not put a reserve on.


I have six days to go so we will see. Worth exploring.

You could try ebay. You could also call antique and collectables dealers in your area. What you get for them will depend on age, whether or not you still have the orgional boxes, and certificates of authenticity.

I agree with an archived post made by MisMachado:

If they are really collectibles and of vintage, try They have some strict guidelines, but are great to deal with, and a lot less expensive than eBay is.

Dear Melody,
Thank you for your post and interest in Ashton-Drake dolls. Unfortunately, we no longer have a secondary market for retired dolls.


You may want to check eBay or visit an antique/doll shop to get a value for your ballerina doll. Good luck! Thank you, Chris

I hope your mother enjoyed her dolls during her lifetime. Unfortunately it is not easy to sell dolls of this type as most were mass produced and are easily found in large supply over the internet.

You can check out Google, eBay, Replacements and many other sites will appear on Google. Craigslist is good as you do not have to ship.

Many sellers have dolls listed for months (even years) before they sell.


Dolls are difficult (and expensive) to ship as most are a larger size and need "special" boxes and packing.

You can check out sold listings on eBay to see what buyers are really paying for dolls of this type.

Also you may have a special doll in this collection that will sell quickly and for more money. Research is the only way to find an answer to your question.

This is Kathleen. I inherited dolls from my mother. They were all hand made by her, hand painted and fired in the kiln. She made the clothes herself. How can I find out how to price them? They didn't come in boxes, because she just made them at the doll shop and brought them home.

You can sell on,,, or post on and The postings are free, but some charge a fee for using their website if the item sells. You can post photos of the dolls individually or grouped; your choice along with contact information and description. If there are any flaws, it's best to put it out there with pics of them, so prospects are not deceived.

You can check out their individual "value" on Google doll sites or eBay. Dolls are usually difficult to sell and very rarely bring a very big price.

You will have to do your own research on eBay, Etsy, Google etc. Then you can decide if it would be better to just sell them at a yard sale, Craigslist or donate to a local charity.
