I have been told that "I write like I talk", so if you don't understand what you are reading... chances are, if you met me... I wouldn't make much sense to you! Feel free to comment if you care to.

eBay & Me

To help pay for our BIG VACATION... (click to see my last post).... I have decided to try my luck at selling a few things on eBay. My BFF (Best Friend Forever) uses eBay quite a bit and is helping me. She recently bought a Barbie doll at a garage sale and then looked it up online to see if it was worth anything. She found out that it was a collectible Barbie and could be worth hundreds of dollars!!! She then listed it on eBay and sold it for just over $200!!! Pretty cool!

So... I decided that I would dig through my attic and see if I could find "my" Barbies. I did and I have been researching how much they are worth. I haven't seen any prices anywhere near what my friend got for hers, but I may be able to get a little bit.

I have listed several Barbies, including a Ken doll, an Allan doll, and a couple of Skipper dolls. I have also listed some clothes that I had for them. We'll see what happens! Wish me luck!! Here are some pics of the Barbies that I listed....

1962 Ken

1964 Skipper

1964-1966 Allan (Ken's friend)

1971-1972 Malibu Francie

1972-1973 Skipper "Pose N Play"

1960's & 1970's Ken Clothes
