Really?

Someone's smeared blusher all over this doll, she's got a very greasy face and the seller's got the nerve to try and sell this for $200 USD (roughly £125 or €150). If you're in the US or Canada you can get a new one for about $40 less, without all that blusher. (American Girl don't sell outside those countries but I think there are eBay sellers that have worldwide delivery. The problem, of course, would be the price of postage!)

Ugh that reminds me of the stuff I was perusing the other day. Occasionally it's worth trucking through all the 'ought to be taken to thrift or put in a yard sale' items for the occasional special edition or Bob M face, but people and their over-inflated idea of what old beat up stuff is actually worth can be really depressing.

If the doll has scratched off face paint and pets chewed up its arms and legs, there really isn't much there.

Either that, or it's a whole lot of work so had better be worth it in the end.

That is absolutely ridiculous... Though I am commenting to say I approve of your tag.

Here. Have a cute doll to make up for the horror of that one, and because I like a chance to rec this seller simply for her good descriptions.
