How much you'll likely pay from AprilMSE Tools
Make stuff cheap - all too often I see items advertised at only a little under a supermarket own-brand. Usually that scuppers a sale.
If it's cheap enough and in good nick, it will probably sell. If a buyer starts wondering whether it is a good deal, they will probably walk away.
I suppose some people price higher and don't mind if it takes a few rounds to get things sold. When we do it, we want the space back and will be pricing to sell as much as we can as quickly as we can!
I do think £25 cost is quite high but they usually get 500+ people through the door so the potential is there to make some money back.
Price sensibly, I won't even look at stalls with silly prices ie £4 for next jeans, I would rarely pay more than £1.50 for any item of clothing and think most folk are the same
