Secondary market items--prices lowered, shipping included, Poppy Parker, IFDC exclusives, Barbie Convention and more

I have posted several items for sale on the Dollpage Show and Sell--feel free to check out my listings. Prices include US shipping, but I also ship overseas. You can contact me for further information via email. My address is in each listing.

Above, it's Evening Ingenue Poppy Parker. I have two of these for sale. This one is the second listing here. She was the IT Direct exclusive, LE300, available for sale to attendees. She is $260, including shipping and insurance in the US.

Next, it's the African American version of Midnight Celebration. She is available for $350 including US shipping and insurance. I brought this doll home from the convention in Nashville, and her box isn't quite minty--I have photos showing the dings in the box. I'll ship her in an outer box, as she doesn't include a shipper. She is designed by Artist Creations.

Another gorgeous Poppy Parker from IFDC is Glamorous Darling. She was also limited to 300 dolls, and I'm asking $325 for her, including US shipping and insurance. I think she's just gorgeous (I kept mine)--one of the prettiest souvenir dolls from IFDC yet!

I have a fun 16" Gene repaint for sale, as well, for $75 or best. I don't know anything about this doll (or the artist), I'm afraid, as no paperwork was included with her. She was a win at IFDC.

Also NRFB, I'm offering the caucasian version of Midnight Celebration for sale as well. She uses the Lara sculpt and is designed by Artist Creations. She is priced at $325, including US shipping and insurance.

Phyliss Pizazz Gabor was a surprise box win at the Premiere IT convention last year. I thought I might start collecting this size, but I just don't have room. She didn't include a box, paperwork, or shoes, extra hands, or her accessories (or instrument). She's priced at $60 as she is, including shipping.

I'm finding myself a tad overwhelmed with dolls, as you can see. Mahem in Monte Carlo Poppy Parker is so pretty, but I just have too many dolls. I'm offering her for sale at a price of $165 including shipping and insurance.

Last but not least, it's Code: Arm Candy Chip Farnsworth III. He comes dressed in a fantastic suit, with all his original accessories, including a really cute little briefcase. I should mention both he and Poppy are NRFB--all of the dolls are, in fact, except Gene and Pizazz. I'm asking $150 for Chip, including shipping and insurance.

If you live internationally, contact me for a fair price quote. I often ship first class, as well, as InsurePost offers good prices on insurance for first class shipments now. Thanks for looking!

New from Integrity Toys: Poppy Parker Fashion Teen

I'm surprisingly delighted with the announcement of the latest Poppy Parker Fashion Teen line. These 16" dolls from Integity Toys, designed primarily by David Buttry, are adorable. The inspiration behind this collection is: Paris on a grand scale!

Sunny Splash is a basic dressed doll, limited to 300, for $120. She will be arriving soon--the second week of October (hooray!). She has lavender eyes with rooted lashes, and brown rooted hair in a side wrapped ponytail. Her two-piece bathing suit is adorable--with ruffles and a high-waisted bottom. And her accessories are fabulous: a beach bag, hat, sun glasses, beaded sandals, beaded bracelets and earrings (because Poppy doesn't go anywhere not decked in jewelry--that's why we love her!), and a towel. The color scheme is super cute!

Fashionably Suited is also limited to 300, $140, and will also be arriving in the second week of October. She has light ash rooted brown hair and brown eyes with applied lashes. I adore this outfit! It's a pink tweed two-piece tailored suit, with a navy blue camisole and a matching scarf. She's also wearing navy hose, gloves, hat, and pumps. Her statement necklace, bracelet and understated earrings keep her from looking too overdone. Of course, no outfit is complete without the perfect purse--which looks like a tiny Chanel chain purse.

Ma Chérie is limited to 300, retails for $140, and will be arriving the second week of October as well. This look reminds me a little of Foto Fab, only in a taller size. She has strawberry blonde hair in a braided updo, and green eyes with applied lashes. Her outfit is a satin cocktail dress with black lace overlay, belted at the waist with a bow. Finishing touches include gloves (not shown), drop earrings, a bracelet, clutch, veil, and t-strap shoes.

Last but not least, Floating Dream retails for $140, is limited to 300, and is arriving the second week of October. Poppy has her platinum hair styled in a 1960s era partial updo, with blue eye and applied lashes. This big event gown has a fitted corset style bodice and a ball gown skirt with multiple layers. Her jewelry is understated--pearl drop earrings and an unusual pearl necklace and matching bracelet. She completes her look with a clutch and matching pumps.

I'd like to note that these dolls have the same size body as Tulabelle. They are slightly smaller than FR:16 dolls. And I've found that the fashions fit Fairyland Chicline dolls rather perfectly. I am thrilled with this release!

Surprise! It's Elusive Creature Natalia Fatale!

Elusive Creature Natalia Fatale

Integrity Toys Urban Safari collection has started to arrive to dealers, and then been shipping to collectors. I was unable to control myself this past season, and I ordered quite a few dolls from this line. I'd intended to keep just the outfits from some of the dolls, and then resell the dolls.

My original favorite of the line was Adele, Vivid Encounter, and she is amazing. The doll shown above, Elusive Creature Natalia Fatale, was one of the dolls I'd intended to resell nude. However, after receiving her, and experiencing her in person, I have to say she might indeed be the favorite from the collection.

Her hair might be the winning factor for me, I have to admit. It's super soft, long, blond waves--and perfect. That, combined with her tan skin, is very California--and very Barbie--so it was quite a shock to me to see this character done in such a soft way. (I might change her lip color--I don't quite see how they fit in with this doll, though when viewed with the rest of the collection, they look fine.)

I already knew I'd love her outfit. To me, a great IT outfit is one that can be mixed and matched with others--and this one goes great with pieces from Fashion Explorer Vanessa Perrin as well as others from the Urban Safari line. I love the mesh shirt, and the adorable box pleat skirt is cute, too. The pocket detail on the vest is nicely done, also.

And of course--she has fantastic accessories. A snakeskin purse is a necessity for dear Natalia, I'm sure, but I love the enamel bangles and earrings--earrings, even though they aren't entirely necessary with her hat (not my fave) and hair.

Elusive Creature Natalia Fatale

The boots are amazing, too. They actually do not zip in the back, and still, they were super easy to put on. I was delighted, since I tend to break every single doll shoe I touch.

You can see additional photos on Flickr. I'm pretty sure you can still find Natalia from a few dealers--she's limited to 800, and I saw her from Toni's Collectibles for $145, which still cheaper than the Dollpage and some eBay listings.

Tonner fall releases continued

Several other new releases were also announced as part of fall collection, including four new items as part of Tonner's Wizard of Oz line. Above, it's Blue Butterfly - Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. She is on the 19" Wilde Imagination PVC Evangeline body with strawberry curls and blue painted eyes with lashes. Her dress is blue crinkle chiffon, and it includes a petticoat, lace tights, gauntlets, glitter canvas shoes, a choker, earrings, and hair decorations. She's limited to just 250 and retails for $224.99. She's available for preorder with a stand sold separately.

Fiery Skies - Wicked Witch of the West is limited to 250, in stock, and retails for $224.99. She is also 19" with painted green eyes and applied lashes. Her dress is red shantung with black net overlay, and includes lace and faux fur trim. She also includes tights, black shoes, necklace, earrings, and hose. Her stand is sold separately.

Oz Stroll is an outfit expected to arrive on October 10. It is limited to 250, and retails for $139.99. It's sized for 19" bodies, and includes a pink and silver embroidered dress with a tulle bodice and crinkle chiffon skirt. (Lots of crinkle chiffon this release, Tonner!) It also includes a purple velvet shawl, necklace, satin shoes, and glitter tulle gauntlets.

No photo is yet available, but a 22" American Model Glinda is in production called 22" Glinda, the Good Witch of the North. She's limited to just 150 dolls for $324.99, and she will use the AM head sculpt with blue inset eyes and a non-removable saran red wig. She'll have a pink mermaid gown in pink glitter tulle (man! all the glitter!) with a detachable train (cool!), with gauntlets, bracelets, and a pink horsehair hat and shoes. I can't wait to see a photo!

No Tonner release is complete without a nod to the Gone with the Wind collectors. Sewing Circle is a 16" Vivien Leigh doll in a white blouse with lace trim and blue bows, a blue shantung skirt, and white underskirt and white attached petticoat, and matching shantung shoes. She's limited to 300 and retails for $199.99. (No ship date is yet determined.)

Several new Patsy dolls have been released--one to note in particular is The Ultimate Patsy, who is actually a resin version. She retails for $294.99--not bad for a BJD, I have to say. She includes changeable brown eyes and wig, plus a cute outfit. 

Additionally, some vintage doll fans may be excited to see a new addition to Tonner's line with Sindy. She's quite adorable, though not exactly up my alley. The basic doll is certainly priced right, though--at just $69.99 (wow!). She's 11" tall and uses the original Sindy head sculpt, and has rooted eyelashes and a pink and white checkered bathing suit. She's limited to 1000. She has the original shoulder, hip and waist articulation of the original doll--but I'm sure you'd be able to rebody her to another body, if you like. (I wonder how close she is to the Tiny Kitty skin tone?) It looks like two dressed dolls and three outfits are available as well.
