Old collector, needing to downsize
« on: May 10, 2017, 03:08:46 PM »
It's literally been years since I've been on here. Since I had kids, the pony collection has been boxed up, and now I'm finally admitting that I'm never going to go all in on collecting again. Won't be getting rid of all of it, but I really want to reduce it down to my childhood ones and my favourites, and let some of the rarer ones go to more enthusiastic collectors.

But since it's been almost ten years since I sold anything, I wanted to check back here and ask what's the best way to sell nirvanas these days? The only actual rare thing I have is a Greek Baby Medley (who I fully assume is more common than she used to be!) and after that it's a sharp drop off to Macau Jenny, and then assorted HK-made European exclusives. (Do those even count as Nirvanas? I don't remember!)

Glad to see the old forum is still kicking around! I even recognise some of the user names!

Welcome back!

Which version of Greek Baby Medley do you have? There are a few different colour variants of her ^.^

Macau Jenny goes for $40 plus :)

The Euro ponies are a bit of a grey area so the corral might be the best place to get a PC on them :heart:

Thanks! Baby Medley is light green, pale blue hair. I'll have to take pictures of her and Jenny, and post them to the sales forum over the weekend.

Back in the day, I used to sell on Ebay or the Arena. I'm leaning towards just sorting it out on the Arena which I always found super friendly and rewarding for sales, but do you guys have any other recommendations for selling rarer ponies these days?

Please take a little time to read this thread on sales rules and selling etiquette :) it might be helpful for you if you've not sold in a while.

People tend to sell here, eBay or via Facebook groups :)

I'm really struggling to find an accurate price range for light blue Greek Baby Medley :( As with most ponies her price has been fluctuating a lot over the past few years. The Greeks have dropped dramatically in price. She could sell for anything between $250-800 :faint:

I think you'd be best taking offers with a reserve in mind.

Row!!!! Good to see you around again, even if it is because you're selling up.

I remember when you got your Greek Medley! Greeks do fluctuate quite a lot these days, however she is still pretty sought after. She's so pretty :lovey:

Ebay can be awkward for selling sometimes. Here is always a good place to start, and some people have success on Facebook as well.

Lady G! I missed your reply! And it's really good to see you're still around as well--and still collecting!

Welcome back to Ponyland! :D

I've been on and off since I joined too (back in 06)

Sometimes life takes me away from ponies, but the Arena is always there when you come back ^_^
