I'm a pretty frequent ebayer (buyer and seller), but lately have had trouble selling bags -- lots of watchers, but no bids. I 've been told that this is a slow season for bag buying, so am going to wait a bit and try again. It made me wonder, though, what the rest of you do for starting prices? If you are listing a mint designer bag (take your pick: Balenciaga, Ferragamo, BV, etc.), do you start the bid at half of what you paid? Three quarters? Do certain brands command higher prices than others?
