 when selling used children's clothes is it better to have a lot of items posted  together or sell them individually?  What about football jerseys would you do them seperatly or list them together they are the same size and there are 5 of them from different teams?  What do you usually start the bidding at on used items?

I only sell name brand items individually....gymboree and ralph lauren as two exmaples.  I only sell those items in small lots if they have matching items, such as a gymboree dress with a matching hat and tights.  If the name brand item isn't in EUC but may have a little more wear to them I'll put them in as lot with same sized seasonal items and still list that brand name in the title to help draw bids.

I start the bidding depending on what i paid for it and what I want for it.  I get a lot of my used baby and kid's clothes from thrift stores and yard sales....so if I paid $2 for an item I'll start the bidding at 3.99 or so.  If I only spent 99 cents on it I try to list it at that to again help draw bids, but that doesn't always work.  So always start the bidding at a price you are willing to accept if you only get one bidder.

Football jerseys I would list indivualy and make sure the team and players name is in the title.
