Value just depends on what someone is willing to pay for it so really no one can tell you that.

I have resold 3 of these lamps.

2 did not work and I sold them for $150 and $225
1 worked and was near mint and i sold it for close to $500
I resold all 3 about 2 years ago

As far as repairing these lamps the way they work is on each of her hips is a little toggle that attaches to the skirt. When the toggles rotate the skirt moves making it "hula"

Most of the vintage lamps were made out of cheap pot metal so they eventually wear out/the toggles rust off.

There is a lamp repair person in Hawaii who also makes new versions of them but as far as the mainland I am unsure as to where you could get it fixed and beyond the mechanism for the "hula" how it is wired.

Hope that somewhat helps you out
