Linda,

Several years ago when I was a member, I won the Valentino & Valentina beanie babies.
I was just checking on Ebay and and Valentina is so rare, there is one posted for over $10,000! 31 people were watching it.

I miss the forums and everyone there.
I know there has been alot come & go.

Farmlady aka Rhea

Hey... wow ... are you thinking of selling yours? I mean on Ebay? I have sometimes seen some of my Buzz lightyear stuff going for "enormous" prices and when I try to sell mine for close but less -- I never even get one bid.
Honestly sometimes I think it is a way to launder money .... but if you do ever decide to sell it... I'd love to know what you get for it. Just curious to see if prices like that really do happen for items like these!

You know we miss everyone who has gone elsewhere... we know we can't control any of that.... so I am happy you stopped by to say Hi! Do it more often...we'd like that.

Oh my goodness! Now I have to go through all my Beanies to look for a Valentina. I'm almost sure I have one.

I have so many Beanies and Buddies I can't remember them all!

Nice to see you here, Rhea! Some of us have been here for many, many years!

WOW.........I just found my Valentina!! Mint condition, with the tag encased in the plastic protector.

Now I must decide what to do, sell it possibly. I'm not even sure how to go about doing that.

Whew, it's going to be a sleepless night for me, I think!

Any suggestions you all can give me would be appreciated. I've never sold anything on eBay. I used to sell my books on Half.com, but they went out of business.

Hmm, there must be literally hundreds of Valentinas listed on eBay, anywhere from $2.50 to $10,000. I wonder whether anyone is actually buying any.

Some as listed as having "rare errors." I looked at so many of those listed, my poor eyes got weary. Guess I'll just "cool it," and not worry about it anymore tonight.

So now my Valentina is sitting on the back of my couch. I still have my Halloween Beanies out, along with "Plymouth," the Thanksgiving bear.

I will sign on and look at the sold items to see if they sold and for how much for you.... and just give you a range they actually sold for.... doing it now.

Ok.. actual sales in about last 3 months... .01 cent (with tag error ~ Ty Beanie Babies Valentina bear with errors. Gosport spelled Gasport ) to $200 (with tag error ~ Retired Beanie baby Valentina the Teddy bear, DOB 2-14-98, with tush tag of 1999 and PE Pellets and no # stamp on the inside of the tush tag , her Swing Heart tag has a mispelled word instead of Gosport it says Gasport.)

And there are about 50 sales, most were lower rather than even close to the $200. Sorry to burst your bubble, but keep her safe...one never knows.

Thanks, Jo. I won't list my Valentina. I guess I really knew when Rhea posted that, it was too good to be true. Anyway, I love all my Beanies and Beanie Buddies. After all these years. they still make me smile.
