buh-bye boxes! :B
can’t believe i had the black one for like 6 years
(belonged to my first doll ~ dollzone mo)
Are these boxes to some of the dolls you don’t own any more?
yup, i don’t own any of these dolls these boxes belong to anymore. normally buyers don’t want original boxes since they cost more to ship so i normally keep them for abit then i throw them when i run out of space with new boxes XD i keep the black dollzone one for so long cause it belonged to my first doll ever = sentimental :o
I see, that makes sense. Both times I have sold a doll the buyer has really wanted the doll box so at least I have not had to worry about getting rid of it afterwards. It would make sense to keep the box for your first doll for that little bit longer though, if you are feeling sentimental.
I do know that some people don’t keep their doll boxes though, I personally make sure I find room for them. I know everyone is different though.
Honestly I wish I didn’t have to keep my doll boxes. I don’t have a whole lot of space but thanks to the recast issue if I ever want to sell not having the box = oh it’s probably a recast in most people’s eyes :/
Yeah, many people keep them more than they used to because of the recast issue. I have always kept mine because my family know a fair amount about collectables, and make sure I keep the boxes of anything that could be worth something in the future. BJD boxes are especially huge though and they are much harder to keep than, boxes for most other things!
So as a whole things are better with original boxes if you can, just recasts have made it that bit more important to prove they are legit.
You can get creative with storing boxes (like some mine pictured. I wish they all fit up there. lol)
Or you can also break them down and store them flat too! I’ve kept all my doll boxes since day one. I feel safer moving with them in the boxes and now I am glad I kept them because of recasting even though I likely will never sell a majority of them. But good lord is it hard keeping over 60 boxes around!
