Purchasing Betty Boop Memorabilia on Ebay

After purchasing many Betty Boop items on Ebay and OLX, I have this advice for those who are beginning their Betty collection. First, don’t purchase anything mechanical, a watch, clock, etc. These items are meant to look like original pieces from the 30’s and they work for a little while, then fail.

Don’t purchase anything plastic unless you are doing it for pure fun, that is not for collecting. A lot of the plastic collectibles have cheap paint on them that rubs off with minimal wear and tear. So stick with tin or alloy memorabillia if you are trying to build a collection.

Lastly, only work with powers sellers that have a 98% approval rating or higher, it simply isn’t worth the risk purchasing from a seller with a questionable background. Make sure to read the return policy in detail before purchasing.
