    It took me about 2-3 months I believe and I sold it for about 35% of its original value. I could have tried to hold out for more, but the longer I waited the older the style would be and the less I would get for it anyway.

    I think your price sounds reasonable for an online purchase considering its original value. For a consignment store youll have to find one that has a higher end clientel as well as other higher end merchandise. you dont want to be the most expensive item in the store. Youll only serve to make the other items look like a better value and your chances of success will decrease.
