This is pic from a closed auction a few weeks (?) ago. I didn't win. But I am totally in love with the dress she has on.
(yes, it is Francie with a Tressy box)
Can anyone ID the dress she has on? I don't think it is Mattel but I could be wrong.
I was contacted by a hysterical buyer [one that had bought from me in the past] I believe late Nov that she wasn't able to complete multiple transactions without paying immediately for each one. After a major run around I had her purchase them individually and refunded all the extra shipping. Needless to say I lost money on the transaction. I went around with ebay on this getting numerous answers. For a while it was hit and miss with the auctions this was effecting and now apparently according the the last rep I talked to it is being implemented. I probably lost close to 1000.00 in holiday sales over this as most my customers buy multple items and then I kick them a major discount on shipping. Now I am closing my store as it isn't worth keeping it up for me. Not understanding why they are pushing something that hurts customers and sellers as if they kept the old way sellers that wanted immediate payment could just click the tab in their listings.
Thanks for looking. found this interesting doll, and I am having a hard time getting any kind of info. I would love to figure out who the artist is and see any other work they have. Thanks for the input and sorry about the picture quality.
I'm stumped on these. They're marked 1984/Dakin Inc. I associate Dakin with stuffed animals and a few older (60's/70's) dolls and can't place them.
Same size as Skinny Ginny shoes.
I am still trying to open the Barbie house but while I'm waiting there was something
I would like help on. I noticed the house is dated 1995 and my Granddaughter gave me a
1993 Egyptian Queen she didn't want. I see they are numerous on Ebay and was wondering
what you would think of me taking her out of the box (never been opened) and dressing her
in a Dooney outfit?
I keep looking at the Dooney ones listed and have been watching them but usually they
go pretty high. I got all of her clothes except one of the three bracelets and was thinking
about redressing her. Also I notice there are a lot of nude Barbies that are listed as muse.
Does that mean the dolls are built more for fashion?I notice some are listed as ready to
repaint but I wouldn't want to paint them myself. What does muse mean?
I love the designer clothes for Dooneys and Coach but sometimes they go for more than
I would spend on myself.
I can sure understand why there are so many Barbie collectors. You can get swept up in a
hurry. I am so tempted to take the Nile Queen out of her box and dress her or is that a
bad idea and should I wait till I find a Dooney one.
