The Virtual Garage Sale

Hello!  Long time no see...except for those of you who've been following along over at The My Twinn Project Shop.  That's a fun time and I'd always love to see you there!

I'm not here to review anything (sorry!) but I am bracing myself to move to a different state for the first time in 15 years (and for only the second time in my life), so I have a lot of dolls to sell...otherwise the whole freakin' moving van will be filled with dolls!

So, I've set up a shop!  Yay!  You can find the shop on the last menu tab, above, or just follow this link.
I hope I'll dig up something that you've been looking for!  Please check out the Shipping page and the elongated Terms of Use.  Thank you for stopping by after all of this time!

Update: I'm going to start migrating listings over to eBay after they've been here for a few days. The visibility is better there, even though I don't really like the culture.  I'll keep adding inventory here first, though, and then move it after a day or two if it doesn't sell.  Thank you to those who've made a purchase!

  1. Wow, good luck with the move! Hopefully you are going somewhere warmer?? LOL, although if I remember correctly you live in Maine so probably anywhere else will be warmer :-). Good luck with selling your dolls, I remember when you reviewed Tonner Jess, and I actually bought her for myself shortly after that review! Will you be doing a new post each time you list new dolls or should we just keep checking back to this website? Thanks!

    1. Thank you so much, Farrah! It's nice to hear from you. Lol...how true that pretty much anywhere would be warmer! I'm not so sure that's a good thing these days, though, given that the summer here in Maine was brutally hot this year. Yuck. Can't complain today, though. Maine falls are my favorite and I will miss them! :)
      I won't do a new post for each new doll, no. I'll just keep updating the store. I hope to add a bunch more stuff today if the timing works out!

  2. Ah, too bad you are only selling collectible dolls. I was more curious about battered dolls, odd accessories, broken limbs - like things you get for your My Twinn restorations, but in fashion doll scales. Anyway, the listings look good so far, I hope the shop is working smoothly for you.

    1. Sorry BlackKitty! I'd love to see what sort of magic you would work with that kind of thing! I gave most of my de-boxed dolls and accessories away to the Goodwill. I can certainly let you know if I come across any bins with fashion doll bits and parts?

    2. That is very lovely of you, I'll keep an eye out for new additions anyway. Maybe it's a good thing for me, I'd have to use a mail forwarder to get things out of the USA and that's not a cheap pleasure...

  3. Great to hear from you again! Good luck on your move I know how stressful that can be since I just left for school, and that was just my room I can't imagine how it must be to have to move an entire house! Since you probably wont post on here again, I wanted to say thank you as you inspired me to start to collecting as a teenager after years of being told dolls were just for girls. You showed ANYONE could collect, and your blog really helped me through a lot of tough times.(puberty and coming out is a bitch what can I say). Unfortunately though I missed the Makies wagon lmao. I still see dolls and think about what you would have thought about them as a lot of the new releases these past few years have seemed right up your ally. I really do wish you the best with your collection, whether you never collect fashion dolls again, or start all over, I hopeyou figure out what makes you happy.
    With love, Patrick

    1. Dearest Patrick, thank you so much for this wonderful note. I'm so glad that you found something in this blog that helped you embrace your love for dolls...and helped you through the bumpy path of embracing yourself.
      I still look at new doll releases with a reviewer's eye, and a few of the products that have hit the market during the past year or so have *really* made me want to re-boot this site for a review or two! But now, with the move, I think all the remnants of TBP will have to go. It's sad, but also exciting to see what will come next.
      It sounds like you have some exciting things coming next, too! I wish you all the best of luck at school (stay safe!!) and hope you will continue to collect and appreciate dolls for as long as they make you happy! Hugs from Emily.

    1. Hi Viola! I'm sorry about international shipping. I just can't make flexible shipping prices work with the shop software I'm using. :(

    1. Thanks Molly! :D I'm kind-of wondering what will show up in my shop, too! I keep finding bins that I'd forgotten about. It's embarrassing.

  7. I have really missed your sense of humour and beautiful photos. I did check in on the My Twinn page. I hate moving! I haven't moved since 1995.I have far too many things to even think about it,so I can imagine your situation. Will you be selling,I think you called her Fidget,( She was sculpted by the lady who did the Only Hearts Club dolls.), or the Star Ace Hermione? (I can cope with the messed with feet and socks if it gets me a discount!)Feel free to leave me a comment on my blog (Planet of the Dolls),with your email address if you want to get hold of me. My comments don't publish unless I publish them.

    1. Hi Tam! Thank you for the nice message! :) I am getting pretty stressed about the move, that's for sure. I'll be glad when it's over!
      Fidget has a new home, but I still have Hermione. Fee free to message me through Etsy (https://www.etsy.com/shop/MyTwinnProjectShop) with an offer! I'm trying to sell most things--even lovely Hermione.
