'Tis the end of an era.

Is there anything I picked up from you that you'd like to get back? I didn't think you collected any more, but if there was anything of special sentimental value, let me know, ok?

I actually sold a few pieces back to this really nice lady I bought some of mine from. She was going through a situation where she had to sell, and now she's getting stuff back, so that was pretty cool.

Awww, sure sweet of you to ask. I have I think still 3 dolls total that are just my all time favorite. They are hidden away but I just couldn't let them go.

Let me know when you have the items up just so I can look again... It makes my heart flutter... to see all of it again. But yes ... end of an era...

Maybe you said in a post I missed but is there a reason for selling specifically? Just making more room (as said in other posts) just ready to move on? Looking for starting a new kind of collection...

Also just because my heart has a special place for SMoon ... what stuff are you keeping? What pieces will you just not let go ever? For me the hardest last piece I kept besides the three dolls I still have was the sushi set. For some reason I just love love love it... when I finally let it go it was time but yeah... what will you keep or find hard to let go of emotionally?

Yup, space is indeed the final frontier. My Disney collection has just kind of taken over, and it's gotten to the point where we either build an annex to the house, or I'm content with letting my collection sit in a pile in cardboard boxes. So, I'm sending the dollies off to find good homes. I haven't been actively collecting dolls (with rare exceptions) for a number of years now, so it's really only acknowledging the inevitable.

I'm not really sure what I'll need to hang on to! I sold off a lot of my Jenny dolls already, and there's been a couple of Licca items that I just plain refused to sell. It even surprised me that I was more attached to Licca than my Kisara dolls. I know the Amazoness Quartet and the various talking ones from different countries have always been my favorites. I'm wondering if it's actually going to be tougher to part with the Cardcaptor Sakura stuff. I REALLY loved that show to pieces.

Ah, something I have interest in and, more painfully, knowlege of TRYING to sell...

If you wanna just get RID of it, you may be able to sell it but, a couple of years ago, I was unable to sell my SM stuffs, and I put the starting bid at what I bought them for; which was, on the secondary asian market, about 1/3rd of what they were selling for at the anime cons when you could even find them. I have first season stuff, like the transformation pen, music locket, etc that probably would be worth three figures to the right person IN THEORY but most people have such a CARE LESS attitude...

uhoh... I'm gonna have to stay away from evil-bay....

Following your journal is/has cost a fortune... between all the Stitch you show that I ended up buying and now selling your sailor moon stuff...

hmmm never seen the Pachinko set before... it is from Super S does that mean there were other versions as well? Curious... I thought I had seen all the toy like stuff... even I... a jaded Moon Merch girl can learn something ;)

Heh, I was just telling somebody about the awesomeness of your Sailor Moon collection.

That pachinko game was one of the few J Moon items I ever found in Seattle. It showed up at the store well after the SuperS season ended in Japan, so I've always supposed that they had leftovers at the factory or middleman, and just decided to ship it to the US to get rid of it.
