Where can I sell my 23 unopened collectible Barbies at?

I've tried Craigslist, but have not had any luck. I've tried yard sales too and people won't pay the price that they're worth. I was thinking about putting them on eBay, but I looked up the same collectible Barbies on there that people have listed and no one's bidding on them.

  • I love Barbies and buy on eBay a lot for them. I can say though in recent months especially prices have gone way, way down. Your best bet on eBay would be to do it Buy It Now at a price that is reasonable, that is you aren't going to get right now what the doll is worth because the economy is so bad. With less bidders you have less of a chance of it bidding up to a decent amount and therefore a Reserve Price would be useless, too. I think price them to sell if you need the money, not give them away but understand what it says in a book is what what you will get today in this market.

  • EBAY!!!! Research them first.. then sell them on there.. you will get a lot of money probably... but figure out what they are worth on there first.

  • Just because no one is bidding on them on Ebay doesn't mean they won't bid on yours. Give it a try...if they are in their original boxes..collectors will know what you have and will pay....all you are out of are Ebay fees and pay pal fees...give it a try....
