Garage Sale Pricing??? Thomas the train

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
I have A Thomas the Train Big Set
Thomas the Tank Engine Big Set at Hamleys
here is what it is tho this shows british price
It is barely played with since we also have a huge wooden train table and set
so I want to get rid of it.

anyhow what would you price this as?

also I have some BRAND NEW sets of Cuisinart cutting boards I was thinking of selling (dh thinks I should do craigslist and not in a garage sale for these)
I was thinking of pricing those for 1$ they originally cost 50$ they are brand new still packages (and no I didnt pay for them)
dh says I should save them for more gifts but I feel as tho I have given them as gifts to all I know LOL or sell them on Criagslist for at least 20$

I THINK Target had a set very similiar to that. I would go look up Thomas train sets at their website, and go from there.

I think the wooden Thomas stuff sells better than the plastic stuff. Do you know how much the retail price is? You could also check eBay and see what comparable sets are selling for and go from there. I found this one that had a buy it now for $15: Thomas the Tank Engine - Thomas Big Loader Train Set - eBay (item 230280515305 end time Aug-16-08 12:42:58 PDT)

The cutting boards I'd price more than $1. I'd say more like $5 and see what happens.

Kelly,
Sell the cutting boards and thomas on Craigslist for half of retail. They should sell for that if no luck within 2 weeks lower the price a little, but really both items should go quickly! Do not sell either in a yard sale, really you can make so much more on CL!!
