sigh…sales are ridiculously slow…I can remember selling babies w/in minutes of them being listed. Now it seems people don’t want to bid unless the auction is stupidly low and I take a loss or the auction is $0.99 w/ no reserve.
Someone messaged me about my Keiko telling me it was better than another very well known artist, who she told me she had a lot of babies from. Anyway, she inquired about Keiko’s reserve ($450). I told her and she acted dumb shocked, like I’d told her $2,450 or something! I was just like, ok well the doll was $110, the eyes were almost $40, the outfit is boutique, not to mention the hours I spent painting her and bringing her to life plus she’s a #'d limited edition kit. UGHHHHHHHH…this subject makes me crazy.
I hate to create babies just to keep them in my crib, but I refuse to sell for less than what I know my babies are worth.
It’s just tough. I don’t sell as a job, rather a hobby but I still like to sell!
