Another price raise in the works... sorry folks, it's necessary!

Hello All my lovely friends!!

Well, there is no good way to put this, so I guess I will just come out and say it. I did not think that I would have to do this again so soon but it looks like I will have to raise my commission prices once again.

Not sure when exactly this will happen, but I will post new info as soon as I have figured out the details. I am very sorry about this but it is necessary. I'm just taking into consideration the recent price range that my dolls have been going for, not only through my auctions but also on the secondary market, and this includes the older dolls that I have made that are quite basic, even those are fetching higher prices. I really need to think not only about what is fair for my customers but also what is fair for myself and my business at this time, so I just decided that I need to rethink my pricelist and come out with a solution for us all! For now the pricelist will be removed off of this blog so that there is no confusion in the meantime. But if you have a commission coming up, I can send you the new prices directly to your email once I have the info ready.

I understand that there may be some people who will be upset about another raise. This will be my third time raising the prices this year. It started off at $80 a faceup, and now has risen to double, and to be honest I think that was still incredibly reasonable and affordable... But as I said, I really need to think about what's fair for me and my business at this time.

As some people may know, I am always open to doing trades for stock dolls, or kenners, and might even consider other dolls as well like Lati, Person doll.. Plus, I am also ok with doing payment plans for commissions which I do not allow on my auctions.. So, I really do want to work with people and make sure that my dolls are still within reach for the people who have been patiently waiting in my list for a year or even longer, and patiently waiting as the prices keep slowly rising... I really do appreciate it, and I hope that everyone will understand :)

If anyone has any question please feel free to send me an email directly. I have a new email address: gbabydolls@yahoo.com

Thanks so much!!!

Help for Japan

Hello All !!

This is my newest creation, a dark little girl named Daphne. She is looking for a home this week. You can find her listing HERE

I started working on Daphne a while ago and had made her with the purpose of paying off some bills. But I really want to help the people of Japan in any way that I can so 20% of the proceeds from Daphne's auction will be donated to Japan Earthquake and Tsunami Relief Fund, this you will see directly on her ebay listing. However, I really want to help even more than that so in addition to the 20% from Daphne I'll also be doing a raffle of some sort and will post info on my flickr as soon as I've got it ready, not sure how long this will take so please stay tuned! :)

Last, I just want to say how AWESOME this Blythe community is for all that you guys have done to support Japan in the past few days. It is really amazing how quickly everyone has come together to help and show support through fund raising, or even just a comforting comment in someones stream. It's incredibly heartwarming and makes me very proud to be a part of a community like this. I LOVE YOU ALL!!!!!!!!
