Continued insight into once-popular collectiblesWelcome to the second installment in our series of collectibles that have fallen out of style. This time, we highlight the fading interests in items labeled limited edition and everyone’s formally favorite dolls, Cabbage Patch Kids.
Limited edition goodsThe phrase was coined in the 70’s to describe certain batches of items that were limited by amount. Collectors purchased in bulk as an investment, only to see the values drop in the 90’s. The kicker is in the packaging. When the original box and paperwork is included, then you have something. However, those aspects are often missing.
Cabbage Patch KidsIf you happen to own one of the original “Little People” dolls, handmade by art student Xavier Roberts in the late 70s, then you have a collectible. But if all you own is one of the mass produced Cabbage Patch Kids that were made when Roberts sold his company, then what you have is merely a toy.
We, at Full of Surprizes, can spot a genuine collectible very easily. Your estate, or the estate of a loved one, may be chalk full of them. When it is time to liquidate an estate on Long Island, we can help sift through things and figure out what is a hot item and what isn’t.
