There have been threads similiar to this, but not as specific, I don't think. I was in an antique store recently and at one booth there was a sign that read, "Pretty to look at, tempting to hold, but if you break it, consider it sold!" I starting thinking about this situation. What if you were at a meet and someone was handling your doll, with or without your permission, and they dropped it and it broke, Say a finger snapped off, or an elf ear, or the face cracked, whatever. Would you insist that the person pay to have the part replaced? Once one of my dolls fell over (this occured at home) and his finger snaped off. I was finally able to glue it back on, but it was never quite the same and the repair was visible even though I did my best to reattach it. So would you tell the person that you expected them to replace the broken part? What if you were the person that caused the damage? Would you consider yourself responsible and offer to replace the part? I'm just curious.
