Ebay past help
#1
once a week I generally try to take a look at ebay to see what is happening in the reborn doll world and I have to say I think ebay is now beyond help lol

I think new buyers would be very confused by the dolls for sale and the term reborn has kind of gone by way side now as doll companies are now using the term.

I was also surprised at how many dolls/and many are actually reborns are well under $200 and having said that most were pretty awful but priced accordingly.

I was also REALLY surpised at how many limited edition kits are appearing for sale at really inflated prices, so many more than before.

here are todays ads I found rather disappointing

I have also had many women in the store talking about reborns they can now buy from magazines which of course we know are not actually reborns.

Advertising (false and misleading)is really getting in the way of this art form

Amazing how many people believe Ashton Drake dolls are reborn, no matter that you
tell them they are manufactured in a factory not reborned at all, you know by the look on their faces that they do not believe you, one lady said " of course you would say that as you probably don't sell much " I laughed and said " glad you like dolls and not reborn babies".

lol Maxina I also get the same kind of comments about Ashton Drake and the fact people are buying mass produced DOLLS not one of a kind reborn/art dolls doesn't seem to bother them, They do still believe they are Reborns , but Ashton Drake do advertise them now as Reborns and we all know whats in magazines and the papers is true lol.

This is interesting. I got a message from a customer who wanted a 'reborn baby' reproduced by me, and sent me a photo of an Ashton Drake doll. I had to explain them that it was not a reborn, but a mass produced doll. Then they looked at my website and ordered a reborn doll.

I would say they don't. Most people cannot see the difference between a poor and an artistic beautifully made doll, LOL!

Just coming from a look on eBay.

There are lots of dolls from Hong Kong/China being sold for something like 1800 British Pounds. Many poor made dolls, horrible rooting and painting, being sold for hundreds of British Pounds. I don't understand what is going on on eBay... has everybody lost their minds?

It seems so Andrea and it also seems that any baby doll is now being advertised as a reborn
