Hi Charles,

.

Is the book Land of Nod a story? I think these are two things the book, which is by XXXXX XXXXX she wrote a story book of this name. Then the paper dolls which are separate, is there a story in the book? Do the paper doll and paper clothes have any writing on them, are they in a folder or something ?

Near as we can tell the clothes are to put on the characters in the book. If this is of any value at all, we can take the protective cover off the head of the dolls. The heads are of the bunny and girl from what we can see. Overwise we should keep as is I think.

Ok, I see how it is thanks, XXXXX XXXXX what I found but, wanted to make sure it was not a book then also some paper dolls.

The Land of Nod Paper Dolls in the Book, have an estimated value on the secondary retail market for an of average of $45.00-65.00, depending on the condition and where it is for sale at. These will typically sell higher in an Antique Shop or Private sale compared to an auction. If you are thinking of selling, you might want to check your local Antique Shops in the area to see what yours or one like it would sell for or has sold for, then you can decide to sell online or locally. As antiques and collectibles are subject in selling price to different areas across the country..( Larger Metropolitan Areas bring higher prices then Smaller Cities. )

.

If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.

.

You can sell in your local area or a larger city near you with Craigslist, it is free, and when they item sells the buyer picks it up. You can sell on Etsy, which is a great place to sell from, you list Vintage Items, they can stay until they sell. Much like having a little store online.

.

There is Amazon and of course Ebay. All of these sites get you a lot of World Wide exposure and bring the best traffic. They are all great! If you sell to a dealer or antique or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
