TIPS FOR AS­PIR­ING COL­LEC­TORS

South African Garden and Home - - Collectables -

If you’re look­ing for pris­tine or mint con­di­tion dolls, en­sure you’re buy­ing ones that have never been re­moved from the box.

The seller will usu­ally have a good se­lec­tion of im­ages of the doll they’re sell­ing, so look out for marks or stains on the cloth­ing.

The best place to buy them is on eBay and they’ll be de­liv­ered to you. Vinyl dolls aren’t as col­lectable as porce­lain ones, but they make nice pur­chases for their out­fits and they’re good ones to start with if you don’t want to spend too much ini­tially.
