April, Lou Lou and Sunny kits are all listed at $499.99 at Irresistables. That’s just crazy.
That is crazy. I wonder why???
Someone will pay it
I think those higher kits are due to her/them buying them from buyers to sell at the “store”
So they paid a private seller for them and have to keep the cost high to make it back…
That is my thoughts anyways
I find that so redicules not normal that price nobody will spend so mucth on a kit
Not fare to people that have wanted the kit and mist it ?
That they raise the price a little i can understand but this
Supply and demand is guess, I bet they will sell too
If I’m spending that much on a kit to paint, it’ll be silicone. For real?? $500 for a vinyl kit…
I guess it worth it if you really really want it for yourself or are being able to sell the finish doll on a higher price point, thought even that you can’t get a good profit .
I wouldn’t buy a kit at that price no matter how much I love it.
Like @jlesser said, they buy those kits back from artists. Irresistibles is just acting as a middle man. This helps the artists sell their sold out kits and it also helps customers not get scammed into buying knock offs. It’s a fair practice. All artists have the right to expect higher prices from their sold out kits. And plenty of customers are willing to pay the higher price. Usually the SOLE kits on Irresistibles are cheaper than they would be on eBay, Facebook, etc.
It is called price gouging. That is why some people were upset about the release of a second editin of a LE kit. Takes away their profit.I
That’s really expensive. Do you think they hold onto some kits for a while until they are long sole then sell them? Maybe they say the kits sold out but they keep some for a later sale. I don’t know
It could be from her personal kits also. The owner is also an artist.
But I think they buy them from people selling their SOLE kits. Just like Katina said.
So if I have a LouLou kit and want to sell it, I should have to sell it for $110? Meanwhile someone would buy it and sell it for $600. So I would have to lose potentially $500 profit just so I wouldn’t be considered a price gauger? Supply and demand doesn’t matter? Increased value doesn’t matter? Are coin shops wrong when they sell an old penny for $25 or an old silver dollar for $100? Should a Mickey Mantle rookie baseball card only sell for 5¢? Doll kits are collectibles just like any other collectible. It’s absolutely fair for the value to increase and it’s certainly not price gauging.
I don’t think she holds on to them. The sold out kits randomly appear on her site. At some point she mentioned that they were buy backs from customers and she was selling them for the price she paid to buy them back.
I’ve only spent that much in a kit once and I ended up selling it for less
I agree, that’s why all of that seems weird to me. Why buy kits if not to paint them ?
It’s like a kid having a Barbie in a box, never opened it or play with it, only for a chance that maybe, someday, it takes value…
I think I don’t have a collector mind !
I am with you i always told myself this is my limit and wil not go over that
Even as i can aford it and love the kit so mucth
That is what i find strange to if you buy a Kit it is because you love it for yourself
or for custom
So not than you sell it right away tough
So why wait 3 or more years doing nothing with it i don’t understand that
My mom bought me barbies like this. To collect. Unfortunately when we moved the movers didn’t pack them correctly and the boxes got mashed and mooshed ruining thier value. I didn’t like the fancy barbies anyway so I wasn’t never tempted to play with them
