Say It’s Only a Paper Doll…

Or so kind of goes the song.

These dolls might be just paper, but it’s paper of the cash variety!   I come across these occasionally at estate and garage sales and they have yet to let me down.  This particular doll, cut from a 1917 newspaper with a unique wrap-around dress, just fetched $50 on ebay!  Hooray! 

Others I’ve sold were not so old, but equally interesting and profitable — 1950s fashion sets, girl scout dolls, etc.    As you can imagine, these dolls are fragile and didn’t hold up well with the young girls that played with them years ago.  Not many survived and those that did are a hot commodity.  Collectors are very enthusiastic and willing to pay top dollar.  Watch for them!
