The things you find on Craigslist. *A doll post!*

So I know I haven’t posted much on the hobby as of late.  I just have been dealing with my own personal stuff and would rather post on my own doll stuff than stuff that’s already been posted about several times.  But today my friend Sarah send me a link to something on Craigslist that I just had to share.

So Sarah was looking around at the different ads on CL and suddenly came back with a “OMGGGGGGGGGGGGGG!!!”.  I was curious what was up.  She called me in order to hear my response to the ad.  So I clicked on it.  There were two small blurry pictures of dolls.

Ok, nothing out of the ordinary really.  Somebody selling a big lot of Barbie dolls.  So what, right?  Well then I looked at the asking price.  2000 dollars!!!  I kid you not.  Take a look at the ad here.  I’m showing you that one because the number is messed up by two numbers and I really don’t want people calling “Dan” and asking him what he’s smoking.  LOL!  So me and my friend had a good laugh over this until she hit me with another “Omggggggggg!!!”  She sent me another link.  It was an older ad for the dolls that wanted 2500 dollars!!!  LOL!  Ummm, ok.  Yeah once again we had a good laugh…until she hit me with ANOTHER “Omgggggggggg!!!”  LOL!  Seeing a trend here?  Well it was a link to another older ad for the dolls.  This one was one of three that were posted all asking for the same asking price of 3000 dollars!!!  For a set of 55 used dolls.  Wow.

Now don’t get me wrong.  I can understand if the person is trying to raise money for surgery or something as equally important and they are trying to do it through the dolls.  The dolls look like they are in good shape.  They are all dressed, some of them in the exact same outfits which I find kind of weird.  Most of them have shoes on which is seldom seen in used doll lots.  And while their hair needs brushing it still looks in good shape.  So it’s not like they are selling crap.  But do they really think they will get that much for all those dolls?  Honestly I’d be surprised if they got 100 dollars for the lot.  They are used dolls.  If anything they be bought for their clothes and experimenting by the doll community.  I am very curious about the high price for the dolls.  I also wonder what dolls those are.  And do you notice how a big bulk of them are red-headish brunettes?  Which is funny because for the last few years it’s been mostly blondes on the shelves.  Where did they get those dolls?  They don’t really look like Barbies even, so I am seriously wondering.  So what do you guys think?  Think it’s scam where you pay and don’t get the dolls?  Think these pictures are from an Ebay sale somewhere that they stole the pictures from?  Or think they are legit peeps just looking to make some money to help better their lives or make their kids Christmas happy…which I doubt or they wouldn’t be getting rid of their poor kids’ Barbie dolls!  LOL!

Ok, so I just wanted to share that with you.  Let me know what you guys think and I will talk to you all soon.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

Loves ya,


  1. I knowwwwwww OMGGGGGGGGG! I still can't get over THIS....THIS has to be the funniest thing I have seen in awhileeee. AHAHAAHAHA Girl I am still dying over THIS...Speaking of THIS....have you seen THIS??

    I still think you should email him for better pictures!

  2. I have a sinking suspicion that some of those dolls aren't Barbie at all, especially in the first picture. Mainly the brunettes with the really big hair in the first picture. Heck, a lot of the back row looks like Barbie clones.


Hello my lovelie, what's on your mind?
