I brought this doll at a thrift shop. And I was wondering how much you would be worth? It is a friend's doll design by Sharon Andrews
She is cute. Primitive style folk art is pretty popular right now.
Sharon Andrews made dolls for ESC Trading Company so I would assume who this gal was made by. These are not old dolls (some of the parts were made in China) but they are quality reproductions of the old primitives.
Her works are still very popular (I guess because they are unique and not your run of the mill "manufactured" doll.
I have seen her pieces sell online (various websites--SOLD prices) from $25 up to $100. The price differences are because of size and condition. It may be hard to find an exact match to your doll because her pieces are popular and people are keeping them, so in this case I think similars will help guide you if you want to sell her.
If you are going to sell yours, I would suggest trying a 7 day auction on eBay starting in the low $20s and seeing what she will fetch.
Do package her carefully and be aware that in June the USPS is changing their mailing protocols to DIM weight (which is the dimension of the package and the weight combined).
Talk to your postmaster and find the best box with him or her to ship so you don't lose money with the protocols coming. Be sure to follow eBay or whatever site you lists on--their instructions for setting up shipping (which means you have to know the weight AND the box size before you list the item AND enter it correctly into the shipping section of the listing.
She is very lovely!! I hope you do well with her! Thanks for sharing!
These are neat dolls but there are a lot of variables so it is difficult to even go by what a 'similar' sells for. Size is an important factor as this type doll was produced in several sizes.
eBay has a few of Sharon Andrews' dolls listed for sale so you might take a look and see if you want to place a watch on one to see if it sells.
Here are some links to dolls that may have sold in the past several years but since it is Worthpoint we have no way to tell a date or if it sold and you have to be a paying member to find out anything about the sale.
If you list your doll on one of your local sites (Craigslist, USA4Sale, LetGo, OfferUp) you could start it at a higher price - $50-$75 - as you will have local pick up and no shipping cost.
You can always lower your price if no one shows an interest.
Always remember; pictures sell an item as well as a good description as most people will not be familiar with the name and will just be seeing the doll.
According to Etsy, the dolls sell for an average of $22.50.
