Beanie Babies anyone ?
« on: March 11, 2011, 12:01:48 AM »
After a beanie baby discussion in the Post your Pics thread, I found this offering in a central California Craigslist offering.

Maybe the seller of the above batch is having trouble selling because he called them "bennie" babies.

Then I found another where the seller was trying to line up 800 babies on his/her couch for a pic; I think that person wanted $1K for the babies.

Mr. A told me that the ones he is able to sell for big bucks are the rare ones, with the plastic heart intact and in the plexiglass case. I don't think either of the two examples above  meet those requirements. I took a batch of 2 dozen to the flea market last weekend; all clean, with heart tags, no plastic containers; sold 2 for $2 (total) and took other 22 to Goodwill.

This is a rare one; seller is asking $999.99 as starting bid:

Here are a couple of more Beanie options. If you do a clist search in Memphis, some 16 opportunities will come up. Here are two that are east of Memphis .

The one directly above is 300 beanies for $300.

The one above here is for 34 beanies (some in cases) for $600.

You have to know your beanies !

OK, one more and I think I'm done with my research on the Beanie phenomenon in general.

Picture below is from Chicago; person is asking $70 for 50 Beanies; nice wood floor !

Another in Chicago has "hundreds" for sale for $1500. This person had so many they were
uncountable I guess, but he/she will take $1500 no matter what !

There were 86 listings for Beanies in Chicago on this date (3 11 2011)  and many were from the same person who listed individual babies by name...that person was asking $3 each.
