Would you pay $20 for used maternity jeans?

I purchased some maternity jeans from motherhood maternity back in 2009. I needed them ONLY for my 3rd trimester. They were $40 pairs of jeans. Still brand new fringe on the feet of the jeans and no elastic tears. I have TWO pairs of these jeans. I'm trying to get rid of them and was told not to just thrift sell them since good condition items are still worth something. Is $20 too much to ask for for the two pairs? It's combined $20. That's $10 each for $40 pairs of jeans. I'm not use to this whole seller thing, so just thought I'd run it by ya'll to see if that's decent or if I should up it...lower it...before I post it on a website.

  • honestly I would try for 15 or 20 a piece then ther is room to negotiate. People like a good negotiation.

  • No, honestly. Can go to a thrift store and get them cheaper.

  • I do alot of Craiglist/Bookoo shopping and honestly no I wouldn't pay that much for used jeans. Totally understand wanting to get back as much as possible from the money you spent but that's almost never possible, especially when it comes to clothes.

  • Sounds reasonable to me. Do a search on eBay and put the brand in the search bar and see what people are asking for them. You can see if people are bidding on any also. And I would be glad to do a search for those that have sold already if you are not a member. Private message me if you'd like me to do that. GL!

  • Twenty dollars for both pairs is reasonable .. Though second hand that's even a little steep.
