the price puzzle

Posted by helen on December 21, 2010

some Barbie dealers/sellers set the doll price  3 times higher than its  Regular Prices,  even the doll is avilable everywhere in major local or online retail stores  such as  Toys R Us,  Walmart ,  Target …

here is an example, “I dream of Jeannie”,  she is neither hot nor rare,  she is just another doll, you can buy her from your local Toys R Us or ” Barbie Collector”  online store

 regular  retail price  $34.95   shipping $7.95 on  http://www.barbiecollector.com/node/7523#page-20

but this seller  demands you buy a lot of 2 for $239,  that’s $119.50 each.  shipping $19.95  http://tinyurl.com/249eksq  you’d think if you buy 2, you should get some quantity discount,  NO, you pay triple.  and the seller call it “wholesale lot” 

the seller is  not joking, some people do pay high prices.

I just dont know  what kind of buyers  would rather pay $119.50  instead of $34.95?  what kind of marketing strategies the professors didnt teach me?!  I am puzzled.

 not only lower price, lets talk about service, too dont you believe  Mattel’s “BarbieCollector” is more reputable and offers better services than this eBay seller?  I do.

UGLY Lucy tells the truth

Posted by helen on December 21, 2010

this is not a nice looking Barbie, she is a Lucy!

the “I love Lucy” series continues,  I dont have much love for this line, I got an impression these dolls dont sell well, they always end up in the clearance piles,  but new dolls come out every year…
