Where are you CURRENTLY buying your MH dolls?
« on: December 01, 2019, 02:20:59 AM »
Hello everyone!

As we all know dolls are getting harder and harder to get, and from what I see in some places the prices are going super high, or they are really 'irregular' by that I mean that some 'not so rare' dolls are expensive and then others that I consider 'rare' are sometimes the same price. I exclude the super rare here.... those are always expensive ^^;

Anyway, I'm writing this because I'm in the hunt for Abbey 2017 collector's edition, when the doll first came out it was said that it would arrive to amazon Spain, I checked the prices on Amazon.com and she was at 30usd or so, so I thought I could always get her in there and pay the shipping, but I never did, hoping that I would get in here and now that I've tried to get her on Ebay or Amazon, the doll is just impossible to find, I find it hard to find her even listed anywhere for sale.. :blink:

So I thought maybe you had some tips on where to find dolls Online (in and outside the US) as I see the 'sightings' thread is hard to update as the dolls are no longer 'in store' :(

Thanks!! :love:

ebay.co.uk in the main.  Occasionally Amazon.co.uk for the later dolls.

Gosh, was collector's Abbey really 2 whole years ago... Anyway, echoing eBay, but I also hunt Facebook sales, Tumblr destash posts, and this very forum! Buying from other collectors is how I built up most of my collection, it's a lot easier to get a good condition / complete doll from another collector IMO.

I'm agreeing with everyone else. eBay is the best place to find MH dolls nowadays.  I also shop on Mercari, which is very similar to eBay, but they don't have as big a selection. Although, MH dolls do tend to be cheaper on Mercari.

Yeah.. the things is I find ebay super expensive (Europe based sellers) and the shipping costs are insane, sometimes the doll and the shipping are the same price, even though they ship from Europe... I use second hand apps like Mercari, but u are right there's less dolls there so it's a matter of being lucky!

There are a few Monster High dolls and some bits and pieces that I would still like to add to my collection.  The dolls are still in the thrift stores all the time here in Canada.  I'd say it's unlikely you'll find a specific thing you're looking for at a secondhand store, but I found an almost-complete Nefera on my birthday last year, so you never know! 

As loathesome as FB is, it does seem to be a great place to get secondhand stuff.  What about Discord btw?  There are some doll servers, I wonder if people do sales/trades through that?  And instagram - do people on that platform do destash posts and stuff like on Tumblr?

Hello everybody. Yes i mostly get my MH dolls through Ebay, if i'm lucky i can sometimes find the odd dolly at the local charity shops around me here in the UK. but they are mostly nude ones.

to be honest I was going to sell them or some of them, then when i'd decided too I started looking at them all again and fell in love once more! so i'm keeping them all and have just added a couple from Ebay, today! :biggrin:

I dream of a day where I have shelves

I have actually found some Instagram posts of people selling dolls, some shops trying to clear what they have left and also collectors, I found them on #monsterhighdollsforsale, but I don't know if I would dare to buy dolls in there!
