Almost aways, dealers get better prices than me

When I almost walked away from the garage sale Friday, he told the woman before me $25 for the case I bought, that is why I was mad. She said that was too much for the case with just clothes and a clone Swirl Platinum Barbie head on a Korea Quick Curl type body with a straight waist (not slanted) and Mexico arms. I believe it could have went to the Deluxe Quick Curl dolls or the Last Twist N Turn Face Beautiful Bride with Eyelashes? Any way, I snatched case of clothes at $50, but in his mind, he just knew I was buying to sell he said to, and that the woman was a collector. John probably knows the woman from the dolls show here in Michigan. Right John?? There are only a few that are really high Barbie dealers at shows in Michigan. |
Like they give different people different prices. I remember years ago we were set up at a doll show and a club member was interested in some Littelchap outfits another dealer had. She asked my mom to inquire about the price because she thought the dealer would tell her less than she would tell the club member.
Congrats on your finds.
I went to a garage sale Friday, and the guy kept saying how much would you pay? I said all you have are clothes, so I said $25, he said no and my 4 year old niece will get it then. I then just said $50 he jumped at it. I just am sick when a person puts an ad on Craigslist saying very reasonable prices. I can understand Flea Markets, Doll Shows, and places were people have to pay to sell, but a garage sale should be much cheaper, and $50 is ok for a garage sale just put a price on it, so I know what to offer. I got a Walking Jamie complete gift set minus the doll, even the ball and dogs collar. I got the full Growin Pretty Sears set minus the doll and the curl wiglet, and Kens Surf's up set minus the skim board. Then I got 32 other others most complete, Lamb & leather missing hat, Magnificent Midi missing hat, I even got some items to complete outfits. It was worth $50, but I just hate when they don't price the items. He does sell on Ebay, but he wanted to clean the house, he said. I can't complain, but it just irks me, he said I know you want to resell, I said no check me out on Ebay. I am a compulsive buyer. LOL I haven't sold in years, but I need too. I just can't since it is a lot work buying. LOL Well, that is my rant have a good rest of the weekend.
