Listing Many Mini Lots on Ebay

15 posts in this topic

Hi Everyone,

I've been busy over the last several weeks going through my collection and dismantling three of my major dollhouse projects. I have literally run out of space, and if I want to do more projects in the future (and I really do), I need to let go of some of the older stuff. Here's a link to the items I have listed on eBay - all the opening bids start at $.99 and most things are just sold as big lots of like items:

These are the dismantled structures I have on Craigslist. They are all big and heavy and the shipping seems pretty cost prohibitive to list them on eBay. I am not even sure what to ask for them, so please feel free to make suggestions in terms of pricing or whatever you think would be helpful to move them on:

Thank you!

Jodi

I thought I recognized that RGT ranch, I have your dispensary pinned to my Pinterest as inspiration for one of the shops in my apartment. I'm sorry to see you dismantled it, but I wish you good luck on dispersing your collection.

Wow Jacqueline! I am so flattered - thank you!

I have really struggled with the decision to dismantle and let things go, but reached the conclusion that if I want to progress in my skills and make future projects, letting go is a necessity. I have the memories and photos to enjoy, and of course all of the experience gained in getting to try new ideas and mini crafting skills. I am doing my best to keep my mind full of positive thoughts so there's no room for regret.

Have fun with the apartment and shops! I love being in the midst of a long dreamed about project!

Thanks for the feedback Jenn! I have no clue how to price things and ultimately just hope they go to someone who will have fun with them! You don't want to finish a big old barn, do you?  :bigwink:

No, THANK YOU! One of the plans for my shops is a dispensary, you weren't the only one doing that idea, but you're one of the best, and in 1/12 scale was just such a find for me when searching, most of these when they're done at all, are in playscale, which I love,  but I'm working in 1/12!

I do understand about moving on, but when you do another dispensary, I am going to be following you like a love interest. You really pulled out all the stops on that project and I can only imagine a second one would be even more fantastic. Good luck.

Oh Jacqueline! Let me send you the lot of dispensary items eBay ended the auction because it violated their drug paraphernalia policy, even though they are 1/12th scale minis, so I have a canna candy display and 11 "water pipes" that will be perfect for your shop! PM me your address!

Wow, Jodi.  I just checked out the dispensary on your blog.  Amazing!  It's one of those builds you could stare at for hours and still see something new.  I guess the items are just too realistic for the folks at eBay to distinguish them from actual drug paraphernalia.  :rolleyes:

Thanks Deb! It was a fun and rebellious project! 

I am sure it just flagged something in eBay's algorithm -  no person probably ever even looked at it. But all is well because many of the fun items are going to Jacqueline's new dispensary shop where they will continue to be enjoyed and that is all that matters! :bigwink:

Hi Jodi - If you are not sure what to ask for them why not put them up for auction , that way you may be surprized. There is a miniature auction group on facebook that may intererest you. x

    • Currently selling open box Theresa dollhouse and New Tennyson dollhouse kit
      By blogman100
      I have recently found these two dollhouses while cleaning out my grandmothers basement. I am trying to get at least around [edited] for the Tennyson and I am accepting offers for the Theresa Dollhouse. There is a Dropbox link to the photos since they were to large for the website. The Theresa dollhouse is only opened to check the manual, otherwise it is new.  Thank you and have a nice day.

    • A really crazy story...
      By wormwoodz
      My passion for miniatures recently got me into a really bizarre situation... 
      I collect finely hand sculpted wood furniture... in real size... one of my hobbies is hunting for beautiful pieces of furniture, often in a state of disrepair, and restoring them back to life. So naturally my passion started to bleed into my miniature hobby and I began searching for vintage furniture pieces. Lundby is a personal favorite of mine, but after starting my 1:24 project I discovered the wonders of Bespaq, Hanson, JBM and so many other fantastic artists that I couldn't find locally. Most of what I managed to collect came from all over the world, previously owned, mint or broken. I'm not exactly concerned with the 'collectors value' of a piece, I enjoy the process of searching for pieces that I'm missing and just mixing it up, if I like it I'll get it and if it's broken it can be fixed. 
      So I was “furniture hunting” of the miniature kind and came across this beautiful carved table I had never seen before, great condition and a nice deal too so I grabed it. I kept picturing on my mind where I could place it in my 'mini home', when it finally arrived I open the package with anticipation and..... I find Harley Davidson Merch! My partner is a bike enthusiast, so I ask him if he had ordered anything recently on Ebay... then we check the labels and the receipt inside... it was not ours. After some detective work we managed to piece out what happened, on the journey to its destination someone had switched the labels on the packages, and somewhere out there a bike enthusiast had received dollhouse furniture lol. Luckily I managed to get in contact with the other person, and we sorted out this situation ourselves. I am very happy and grateful that this lovelly table ended up on the hands of a nice person who was kind enough to return it to me, such honesty and kindness is a thousand times better than a refund!
      The table arrived with one leg broken, and I imagine the person who first received it thought it was maybe their fault and tried to fix it.... with 'crazy glue' lol! So I've spent a good portion of the day carefully scraping off the bits of cyanoacrylate adhesive from the wood, and put it back together with proper glue. I think it's setting well together now, and the shape on the top is just perfect for the mini radio I made recently. Attached a couple pics of the table after repairs, dunno if you can tell which leg was broken.. there is a very tiny seam but I figured is probably best to not try to redo the veneer since everything else is pretty much in good shape. I think it's a vintage Bespaq piece but I can't find it on their catalogues, its shape is very unusual and I love it!


    • Ebay Store and Etsy Shop
      By Lady-K
      Hello everyone, long time no see.
      Between a big move to my art studio last Summer and more Dollhouse/Art shows being added to my schedule, my miniatures and I have been zig-zagging across western/central New York. It's been an interesting experience and come September (Sept. 25th - WNYME Dollhouse Show in Hamburg, NY), all of my tiny creations will start traveling again, but for now most of my inventory plans on spending the Summer online.
      So if you missed me at a show, or you would like to browse my artist offerings, you can find my work available at my Etsy shop; https://www.etsy.com/shop/KyleLefort
      And a large portion of my inventory is also posted at my eBay store; http://stores.ebay.com/kylelefort
      I have been posting a few new items each week on eBay and once I'm out of store listings there I will start adding more to Etsy, so feel free to check back later.
      ~ By request, I also have plans to focus more on 1:48 scale items this year. Since 1:48 is a scale I only began working in because I was asked to a few years ago, I'm open to suggestions for new items. If there's anything in my shops that you'd like to see made in 1:48 or there is something that you have a tough time finding for your collections fell free to shout it out here. I'm not planning on accepting any commissions, but I would like to make sure that the super tiny things I create are actually things that other people would enjoy. I have a big magnifying glass now (such a good idea) and am more willing than ever to attempt to do cool stuff in that tiny scale.
    • Listed Items on eBay

      I've been focused on reorganizing and purging in anticipation of getting my new laser cutter late this year, and have listed some items I either don't need, or know I won't use, on eBay. Thanks for looking

    • Do you sell your dollhouses?
      By HotPinkGlitterSparkle
      Hi, there folks!  I introduced myself a few months back and then dove right into building two back to back kits, one for each of my daughters.  I built an Orchid, took a break for a few days, and then built a Westville.  During that time, I really didn't need to lean on everyone here as much as I thought I would, and I didn't spend time posting or reading here because I was building.  I really, really loved it.  I finished last week, and am extremely proud of how they turned out.  Cleaning up my workspace and putting away my supplies left me bereft.  Sooooooo I bought another kit.   My Laurel is on its way!  I guess the plan is to build it and then try to sell it locally, maybe to a friend.  Is that what many of y'all do?  Because I think I'm going to be doing this.  And doing it again.  And again.  I caught the bug.  I've got the fever.  And I am not going to turn my garage into a gallery.  My knitting and crochet compulsion is much more manageable/useful.
      I'm wondering what you folks do with your houses.  If you sell your work, I want to hear about it!  My husband is all for me making a little cash from something I enjoy doing.  Thanks, and forgive me if this question is asked once a week on this forum.
