Hello

Ok, I can give you what they are currently selling for on today's market, is that what you need? If so I do not need pictures. I need the name of the beanie, what year it was made, where it was made ( such as China etc ) then what the stuffing is, such as pellets etc.

A "first edition" version of Princess made in Indonesia is worth approximately $34. If you are only interested in the current value of Princess, refer to the value table below.

Hello,

I have done research on the beanies. People on ebay are asking outrageous prices for their beanies. Some are totally unrealistic.

.

Mac-Cardinal
6/10/1998 - they are asking anywhere from 500.00 - 1,000.00 they actually sold in the past 30 days for from $20.00-45.00.

.

Millennium Bear
1/1/1999 - People are asking anywhere from 1***-**-****.00, they actually have sold for

$109.00-89.00

Snot- People are asking anywhere from 500 and up
5-15-1995 past 30 days -$50.00-75.00

Mystic - Asking as high as 1000.00
5-21-1994 past 30 days -$ 100.00-162.00

Valentino -Asking $1000.00 and up
2/14/1994- None of these have sold in the past 30 days, over the past 6 months they sold from $50.00-115.00

Curly - They are asking from $10,000.00 and up, some lower.
4-2-1996 Actually sold for the past 30 days -$25.00-65.00.

.

Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. 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 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 also Rubylane, which is a more upscale site where people sell more expensive items. There is also Tias and GoAntiques, which is on the same scale of Rubylane. There is Amazon Market Place, ArtFire 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, antique shop or resell shop you can expect to get about 30-40% of what it is worth since they have to resell the item.
.
Please ask any question you might have about your answer before rating this.

It was a pleasure working for you. If you have more items you would like to ask me about, just start a new question addressed to "Glenda" it would be my pleasure to help you.
