We are trying to sell some of our excess baby items ( Car Seats, Pack N Plays ) But we are selling some items to friends..how much would you charge for VERY well kept carters clothes, and a Graco pac 'n' play (just the basic one..no changing table additions), as well as a graco winnie the pooh carseat that is in flawless condition (picture : http://www.babyjk.com/images/8_carseat/3... ) any suggestions would be greatly appreciated!!!

I asked a friend of mine that works at a baby store (used) how they figure out how much to buy the items from people for. She told me the following...



Items such as strollers, car seats, high chairs and play centers usually they look at the brand new price then deduct about $10 for eaither every month after purchase or if its in perfect condition then they look for all parts working, etc. Let's say for example your car seat was $200. And it has been used, so right there they take off 20% of the value. So now your at 160...then if it has anything else with it wrong, such as a little stain, or tear its 10/problem. usually they wont go less than 60% off of what you paid.

If you see this, leave this form field blank.

Honestly I shop on craigslist all the time and honestly I can't stand when people want to charge half of what they paid for their used stuff. I have two of everything because I have one at my house and one at my moms. People do charge that but I don't pay it I wait and find someone selling it for a reasonable amount I paid $30 for a pack 'n play with the bassinet $30 for an eddie bauer convertable car seat in excellent condition $20 for a high chair. I usually pay between 20-30 for items like that.

Quoting Amy:

I usually price to friends depending on their situation. The cloths I'd buy used carters with no stains for no more then 2.00 each peice, and the pack'n'play i'd say $20 or $30, and the carseat i'd price it about 40% cheeper then brand new, Good Luck!
