How much did you ask for your first sale?

This is the first baby I sold. My asking price was $350. She was my 3rd baby. The man who bought it for his wife paid cash without batting an eye. It was very encouraging for me.

Is it bad that I don’t remember the first baby I sold lol when I first started reborning I started right off doing customs. I did mostly a custom painted kit service for $75. My customs were around $175-225. My first ever that I sold in my “own vision” was Liam by Marissa May for $280.

Edit: Thinking back, I think she may have been my first reborn I sold actually. She was definitely about my 4th or 5th reborn.

The first baby I sold was Libby, but I only made what I spent on her as she was a family friend. The the first baby I made a profit from was my 3rd reborn Fei Yen and he was $275. Both pics are from their parents.

I kept my first, but baby number two went for $300. This picture melts my heart. He was a christmas gift and his mommy adores him.

I didn’t sell any one yet, but it’s a good topic to follow. My question would be: if I will average prices on reborns.com between lowest and highest for that kit minus no experience as a beginner, would it be a right approach? But on an other side to build the ‘portfolio’ on reborns.com would it be better to price low and sell quicker?

My first one ever sold was for $170 it was not a realborn but I for the life of me cannot remember which sculpt it was I do know it was an AA boy his mommy went on to buy a little girl as well so he could have a sister .

My first, and quite a few that followed, were given away. Most of them definitely should have been because they were pretty bad. My first sale was a year later for $250.

nothing, I gave her to my Aunt <3… My second one I sold for exact price of supplies. I did that for awhile, figured it was a lot cheaper than a real school, and taught myself that way :slight_smile:

The first (and only) I sold was my first (and also only lol) completed baby, she went for around $100 - all in all it worked out to being around $10 in actual profit, but that didn’t matter since I was so shocked anyone actually purchased her at all!
