Buying Secondhand Sylvanian Families
Where do you find those Sylvanian Families bargains? Or retired sets that are no longer sold in store?
Well, we stock many of these items in at Sylvanian Families Specialty Store. We have a special Sylvanian Families Treasure Trove collection in store too, where you’ll find collectible and hard to find items.
But there are other places you can pick up a Sylvanian bargain too!
Australia’s Number 1 second hand Sylvanian Families buying and selling site: -
Sylvanian Families Preloved Buy Sell Australia & New Zealand with over 2000 active members. Preloved items, bundles, rare items come up for sale regularly from sellers all over Australia.
Members also share photos of their Sylvanian Families set up, villages and DIY projects. You’ll be inspired by other Australian and New Zealander’s great ideas for Sylvanian Families storage or display. If you’re needing Sylvanian Families Spare parts, then this is the place to ask if anyone has a caravan towbar, lights for Beechwood Hall or spare railing parts that you may be missing. With so many helpful members you’re likely to find, or be aided to find the items you are looking for.
Gumtree: It’s always well worthwhile keeping an eye on Australia’s Gumtree postings for Sylvanian Families. You can specify your location and see what is available for pick up in your area. Or if you are searching for specific Sylvanian items, such as a Sylvanian Families pony cart, or retired buildings, such as the Courtyard Restaurant, then you can widen your search to include all of Australia. A word of warning: Be cautious about making payments on Gumtree, if you require items to be posted. Paying by PayPal purchases is the safest option, which gives you buyer protection, in case of not receiving an item.
Ebay – There are always interesting Sylvanian Families items appearing on eBay. The downside is that you have to bid alongside everyone else for the item, which can often drive the price quite high. However, eBay gives your great buyer protection too, and it’s a safe way to purchase. It’s always a good idea to message the seller and clarify the state of the Sylvanian Families figures, if no full description is given. Ask specifically, are there any places the fur has rubbed off, or any spots or marks on their flocking. This will save the disappointment of receiving second-hand Sylvanian Families figures that aren’t in as great condition as you had hoped they would be.
Your Local Buy Sell Groups
Maybe the best place to pick up the cheapest Sylvanian Families bundle possible is on your local Facebook Buy Sell. However, be quick! If it’s a bargain, it likely won’t last long. And the best part is you can pick up items locally, without paying postage costs. Often Mum’s are clearing out their kid’s toys, and just want to move the items quickly for a very reasonable price. Some might be even willing to negotiate for a quick sale. Even if there are only certain items in the bundle that you are looking for, and yet it also includes items not of interest, it’s a great idea to purchase the whole bundle. You can always re-sell what you don’t require on the Sylvanian Families Preloved Buy Sell Australia Facebook group, where you’ll be likely to find many buyers interested.
Sylvanian Families Spare Parts
When buying second hand Sylvanian Families there may often be small parts missing. There is no official Sylvanian Families Spare parts stockist.
It’s possible to buy almost any Sylvanian Families spare part (even vintage) on Ebay, however items are usually located in UK and international postage can make the end price quite expensive.
There is an unofficial site in UK, run by an independent seller, who stocks many Sylvanian Families spare parts. This online store is named Sylvanian Toys UK. Postage prices from UK will also apply.
Sylvanian Specialty Store in Australia stocks a very small supply of Sylvanian Families spare parts currently, and we hope to have a comprehensive spare parts supply in the near future. This spare parts section of our store is currently still a project in process, however we stock a few items at present, such as the Sylvanian Families Trailer and Caravan Towbar connector sets.
