Value of a Brinn Collectible Doll

I have Colorado Belle doll from Brinn's and was wondering if it's worth anything?

I did not find your doll but as a general rule Brinn's dolls have very low value. Most dolls sell for under $25 dollars and most often they sell for less than $10. Dolls like this are so highly mass produced that no doll has any true value.

Thank you! Man when I bought her I paid around $150 for it, but that was in Laughlin about 25yrs ago.

Don't feel bad - just look at similar dolls on eBay and Etsy and you will see that you are not alone in buying these dolls because they were beautiful and also thinking they would one day be valuable.

Just shows that it is very difficult to verdict the future when it comes to "future value" - just look at Beanie Babies, Barbie (usually, only the very true vintage dolls are of any true value),
Cabbage Patch Kids (people fought over getting these "one of a kind" dolls and now they are in the same boat as so many others).

If you like your doll, I would just suggest you set her in a prominent spot and enjoy having her or perhaps you know some little girl who would really like to have such a beautiful doll - I can see their eyes light up at the sight of her!

You may be able to sell her on Craigslist, LetGo or OfferUp for $50 as there would not be a shipping cost or donate her (and get a $50-$75 dollar tax credit - useful if you itemize your deductions with IRS next year) but the thrift store may gain as they may be able to sell her for $50-$75.

Thank you! I'll just keep her and hopefully when my daughter gets old enough to enjoy dolls like this she can have her.

Right she has nothing to do with them.

Mass-produced dolls like this are rarely worth more than $25

If you are parting with her, you could always donate her to a charitable organization or church or animal shelter that uses things like this as part of basket auctions or other fund raisers.

Depending on the organization you may be able to get a tax write off and they get to make a little money on the basket sales.

To me that gives the doll good KARMA value since, sadly, so many of these lovelies don't hold true financial/investment value.
