A couple days ago I got a comment from AngelBear over at the blog The 80's Toy Ark. On her blog she recently put up a post called "13 Tips for getting a good deal on toys." Even though she collects a lot more than just Precious Places, I think all 13 of her tips are exactly the advice I would give to anyone working on their PP collection.
You can click here to view her great post.
I especially like tip #2... Be Patient! You wouldn't believe the good deal I got on my new in the box Pretty Penny Wishing Well because a seller put it up on eBay with an incredibly low Buy It Now price.
