Hi,

Thank you for your patience.

On average, Precious Moments figurines sell for $10 - $15 each on today's market. A few exceptions are their Disney theme figures, such a a Precious Moments Ariel the Mermaid figure, which can sell for up to $45.

Vintage 1960 - 1970s Life Magazine issues also sell for an average of $10 - $15 per issue; some do sell for higher depending on who is featured on the cover. An issue with the Beatles on the cover can sell for $30 - $45.

If you are considering selling, though it may sound cliche, the best platform for you to sell these is on Ebay. It is where the most potential buyers would first go to search for such items. You can also try listing on Craigslist, through a for sale forum group on Facebook or a local consignment shop. I do not recommend selling direct to a dealer, as a dealer will offer 10% - 30% of the lowest perceived value.

You will now please need to take a moment to leave a rating for my services here to you by clicking the stars. If you require further assistance, no worries, the question thread does not close even after leaving a rating.
