Hey all! I was wondering from your past experience do sales typically pick up on reborns.com around in December?
This is my 2nd Xmas on Reborns and my personal observation:
Selling before Xmas is the worst time - so many artists jump in/list just for that time with the low prices. I sold 5 dolls in 3 days a month ago and nothing after that.
What sells well at this time is $200-$300 range as people are mostly buying for kids at this time.
My good friend/ reborn artist is always saying that it is a good time to sell in Jan-Feb as people are getting tax refunds and most collectors shop at that time.
I am selling well at any time of the year, but not in December , but I refused to lower my prices to compete with low priced dolls.
Sometimes. Sometimes I get more sales in Jan.
I can’t believe it but my sales are so down right now. I have 5 dolls online ranging from 299-799 so hopefully it picks up soon
I have never sold a baby over the holidays. I do just fine the rest of the year. Go figure.
Interesting, I would have thought this is the busiest time of year, I guess it just depends on who is looking.
I think you’re right. I’ve definitely noticed a bigger selection of budget babies on reborns.com right now.
And no need to lower your prices as a result.
Maybe the January sales are what happens when people didn’t get what they wanted for Christmas.
hahaha! I always assume it is the people who get money in their cards
Lol, that’s probably right!
That’s exactly what I told my husband when he asked was it a good idea to close November and December. I’ll be ready for TAX TIME, though
Good to know. Thank you!
I agree, the busy time right now is for lower priced dolls. Mine do not go on sale for holidays or anything and I don’t lower prices to compete or make a sale Premake sales are slow for me right now but that doesn’t surprise me with all these “my daughter wants a high end realistic reborn baby silicone she seen on YouTube for around $200 or under”
@Babycrazyforever be careful on buying a silicone for that price. Good Luck!
I really dont understand how there can be budget babies or babies under $200, with the new prices on BB kits, to get the kit, the body and any other supply plus the $10 shipping…wheres the profit if you sell it under $200?
I’m not looking lol and it wouldn’t be anywhere near that price if I was those are the constant posts people looking for babies for their kids or themselves lol people want full body silicones with drink and wet for around $500:see_no_evil:
Oh good you scared me for a sec, lol!
I was thinking more along the lines of under 3 or 4 hundred. There’s currently a lot there in that price range. $200. looks like a reasonable starting price for a cuddle baby.
