Collecting is a super-fun hobby! The online trading community is a good place to obtain value information. Check Internet auction sites like eBay for sold items to get a better idea of what your dolls may be worth.
How do you decide if dolls are worth the investment? Stay informed. Read books and magazines. Talk to fellow collectors. Go to shows. Join a local club or FaceBook group. Think about a doll's uniqueness, quality and workmanship. And, perhaps most importantly, buy those that appeal to you most. That way, investment or not, you've made a beautiful choice!
