    Default Any advice on selling used baby things??

    I have a bunch of baby related items I need to get sold as they are doing nothing but gathering dust. Some things were used for only one baby and some went through two. I have a high chair, papasan chair, nursing rocker, car seat, baby carriers...that type of thing. I was thinking maybe 40% of what I paid for things that we only used for a short time with one baby and 20-25% of what was used for both kids and shows more signs of wear. Does this seem reasonable or like too much?

    TIA

    Well, to be more specific, it's a Dutailier wooden glider. Great for nursing but also great for any kind of mom and baby cuddle time. No ottoman though. The Children's Furniture Outlet carries them.

    Just be careful on how old the carseats are, because they expire after 5 years.

    Big things seem to go for a higher % of original price compared to smaller items (like the Papsan chair would go pretty well, I'd expect).

    I'd think of a price you wanted, post and you can reduce whatever doesn't sell. As soon as you post something with "REDUCED" in the title you get a lot more replies For used, I'd definitely say at least 25% off to start with for the newer stuff. The thing with used as since you only need one person to buy your item, you never know!

    I'm also getting a lot more replies from Kijiji than LondonMoms these days, however, things get buried on Kijiji a lot faster!
