Trigger warning: not for the dentally-squeamish.

A couple years ago someone (innocently, mind) asked why I didn't 'just sell some dolls' to cover the costs of a dental procedure.

Here's the thing:

I own like.. three 'collector edition' dolls. Besides those three, my collection is considered 'play-line' meaning, generally, they're not worth all that much. I might make roughly what I originally paid for them, but then again I might not. Chances are they'd sit on eBay as '$14.99 + $6.50 shipping' Buy-It-Now listings for weeks.

Never mind the hassle of boxing things up and getting them to the post.

So.. don't bother suggesting it, to me or any other doll enthusiast. True, there's other people out there with 'valuable' dolls, but their owners bought those dolls because they love them, not because they wanted them for resell value.

(And then there's the people who actually did buy them for resell value, which is an entirely different ballpark. Either way, don't judge.)

That said, I had one of my teeth decide to partially crumble away today. x.x It's not the first time this has happened, either! I was terribly unhealthy back in high school. I drank a ton of soda and brushed my teeth.. basically never. I flossed, but brushing's important too. (And the only reason I flossed was because I had a package of floss-picks in my desk drawer. I've maintained that habit, as it's one of the few beneficial things I consistently remember to do.)

I'll probably have to go to the dentist! The cheapest option will be having the tooth pulled. I'm stoked, can you tell? At least extractions aren't exorbitant around here. I might be looking at $80-ish.


Needles, drills, and yuck exist in my future. Thanks, high-school-me.

All of the doll listings have gone live on eBay! The custom Lagoona featured is the same as in my current icon. She's absolutely lovely, especially under sunlight!

I combine shipping, by the way. It suddenly dawned on me that I didn't say so in the ads (headdesk) but it's a definite fact; if you take away more than one auction shipping will be combined.

I'm going to start listing up some Monster High stuff later today! Kalli and I went through our collection. I expect the majority will be going to eBay but I've got two customs I'm wavering over where to list. All of my eBay auctions start at 99c plus domestic shipping (usually $5.50 - $8.50). I'll update again once I start the listings, just figured a couple people might be interested to know such things will be Occurring Today. :)

I wasn't seeming to come by much luck on LJ's onestopdollshop so I listed my old Barbie things (and yard sale rescues) on eBay. They'll reach a wider audience, at least, and if I turn any sort of profit I intend to put it toward Kurhn dolls (namely the Chrysanthemum Fairy and Lotus Fairy). I'd like to list up more stuff but.. well, there's sorting it. :/ Kalli and I organized the majority of Monster High clothing and the Moxie Teenz have their own (large) box, but meh. Not today, I don't think. I do need to dress the Kurhn girls for (potentially) going to Diana's Bath and Cathedral Ledge tomorrow.
