After hair soaking and some face cream
I've been collecting Blythe since 2010; at first owning a Kenner was not priority. Over time I've watched ups and downs in the market and in the community. Kenner Blythes soared in prices after she was featured on a cable television program with the price tag of $800-900 [I believe he paid $700 but intended to get $1,500]. I thought my chances of owning a Kenner was over. Prices sky rocketed after that episode now that everyone knew what Blythe was for sure. I saw a NRFB Kenner on eBay for $3,000 just this week.
Also, this week I saw a lull in pricing for the TLC dolls. It was low enough that I felt confident in bringing home a Kenner thanks to Paypal Credit.
I got up at 2 am and 10 bids later I won her!!
She is a fixer upper, but I'm not complaining!!
Some information that I found out from her 2 eBay listings.
She was bought by the person who sold her to me on March 12, 2016 from California. She is a 6 line Kenner. Her eye lashes were sparse. I bought her on the April 19th from Massachusetts. Her body was switched out with a 7 line Kenner and had no eye lashes.
Straight out of the box.
I'm too impatient!! I had to get her cleaned off and her hair worked out.
Her hair is still crunchy and fried looking at the ends. She is still yellow but I don't care she is mine! I replaced her eye lashes. I might replace them again once my cheap ones from China arrive. I'm considering altering a Licca body for her to preserve the semi-original body. It has a crack in the butt which I figure will not hold for long with the glue job by the last owner.
She has no name. Right now she is going by Miss K. I hope it doesn't stick.
