Hi ladies! As some of you may know I got a killer deal on two Ashton-Drake dolls I got at a thrift store. When I got them home, I took a look at the two boxes. One was perfect, looked brand new, and the other appeared to have some marks from storage and was yellowed slightly. I had given both dolls a once over at the store so I knew both were in good condition. Naturally, I selected the nicer box for myself, thinking I would sell the other doll down the road. Pics of the boxes below.
However today I decided to sell that second doll. I went to pull her from the box and much my surprise discover she is a totally different color than the doll I had selected for myself. And not in a oh my god, I’m never going to be able to her way, but more of a wait, wth, this doll looks better than mine. Please see side by side comparison below. The doll I picked is purplish and this other one is pinker and warmer looking. I’m so confused because according to the box they were manufactured one right after the other. Why do they look so different? Both were still wrapped in bubble wrap and netting when I got them so I don’t think either have been used or displayed. My big issue now is I really don’t want to sell either of them! Which is a problem because the money from selling one was going to go towards my dream reborn.
