I am still new to making and selling. I sold my first two dolls in February, so it’s a first selling reborn Christmas for me. Since then I hear ‘This is not a right time… It will pick up around Christmas…’ Here we are less than 2 mo before Christmas. The number of babies for adoption on Reborns jumped from 1000 to 1254, which is more than 25%, as artists who were waiting for this time started to post they creations.
I am not worried about myself as I only have one baby for sale. I am just trying to understand this market.
I see beautifully painted and rooted babies on Reborns from $250 to $400 hanging there forever.
But even babies with a price below $200 is not selling much, they are the most popular as I think they go to children and customers does not care about quality, but still…
May be the army of moms place their orders on scamming sites and now reborns just lost their trust?
Or this is still ‘not the right time’?
