New Year, New Doll Sales Goal

After the revelation of doll purchases totaling some 100 dolls in 2011 (some were gifts and I did sell over 40 dolls last year), I am on a mission to find new homes for at least 60 dolls in 2012. This is an average of five dolls sold per month.  If priced competitively, I should be able to accomplish this goal.

For starters, I have listed a gift set of two dolls on eBay.

I will continue to utilize eBay,,, this blog, and other avenues to realize my goal.

Stay tuned here and on my Black Doll Collecting blog.
