I think the used-dress price is a hard one with lots of variations. Some people are attached to their dress and don’t really want to sell it and others really do need to sell it and get some of their money back.
I was watching a dress on ebay the other day, more out of curiosity about what it would go for more then anything. The starting bid was 99 cents but in the desciption the seller had said she wanted serious bidders only and it would not sell for under $2000. I think from memory she had paid $2,500 new. I remember thinking how can you say it wont sell for less then $2000 when ebay in Australia no longer has reserves.
Quite a few people put bids in and it got up to $950. The seller closed the auction 5 minites before it was due to finsih and relisted the item straight away doing the exact same thing. She ended up closing that auction as well but didn’t relist it. Left me thinking if you want $2000 why not just put that as the starting bid, and is what she doing really within ebay trading policies?
To add to what I’ve already said, can I just take a moment to complain about the people listing 120″ round white tablecloths for over $20.00 a piece? Seriously I can buy them new online for cheaper and its not like they are claiming they are high quality or anything. Geez!
