I think the idea of archiving something if it doesn't move in 1-2 months is a good idea, maybe it can be unarchived if the price is dropped like 30%? I unno

I'm also sick of seeing the same undesirables at the same prices

Also, a couple of you guys complaining about your stuff not moving (Jet, Nahneun, etc) would really be advised to actually put up pictures and either start out at reasonable price points or drop occasionally

I have a pair of helmut Lang inside out denim that reached a low 60 cad so I archived them.
Good choice.

There should be none of this junk posted for sell in the classifieds. None of it has any resell value, it's not what people are looking for or is it in line with the forum's demographic and only serves to clog up and bury desirable items that are worth a damn. Throw it away or donate it, it's worthless.

Fuck this I'm not dropping prices like a madman. Do you know how many hours of my life I've spent photographing those stupid coats and those stupid shoes on a white background, planning elaborate close ups, struggling with my pos p&s and my worthless lamp to have semi decent lighting in the middle of the night. I'll bump my stuff into eternity.

I'm curious if annual membership is growing? It seems like newbs drive the B&S cycle but it's definitely come to a crawl so I wonder if that's why? Also, I'd guess about 3 years ago the massive kopping of higher priced goods took off and I think some people (me included) found that you might have to eat that thing you thought you'd flip if it didn't work out. Overall prices are out of whack though...you can find most stuff new for 75% off retail which makes used clothing worth pennies on the dollar unless you can find that one buyer who wants something unique and happens to be your size.

EDIT check my sig for an example of trying to damn near give away something for months.

I've found no correlation between the price or ballerness of an item and the amount of lowballs or absurd rationales I receive in my inbox.

Could make clicking the bump button decrease the price by 5%. Hold your price and fall deep into the pages or decrease your price and jump back to the top.

This is why I'm only buying retail. I see it, I sleep on it for 4 or 5 days ...then I buy it. There is no way in hell I am selling anything I buy at retail anywhere. The only thing I might sell here is some old jewelry thats about it

I don't know why you guys stuff doesn't move, I've had nothing but good experiences. Never had a piece go more than 2 weeks. Despite this I don't want to live constantly selling things 40, 50, 60% off what I paid so I just buy stuff I know I will enjoy for a long time, of course I have a certain personality that makes this easy for me

That's pretty much how it was before they redid the site - IIRC, you could only bump by dropping price 5% or more, or by adding a new item.

Also, 1-2 months on B&S is really not that long. I feel like for a decent chunk of the stuff that doesn't sell quickly it's not that it's necessarily priced poorly or undesireable, it's because of a lack of visibility. I check B&S pretty often and yet I'll still find stuff I'm interested in that I don't recall seeing before even though its been listed long enough that it's probably been bumped at least 2-3 times.

Not really, though. Under the old system, you got the most bumps by being popular, by wearing the most outlandishly plaid! sport coats over in MC. Who could forget their items buried under endless variations of Nice stuff, S___!

Really cool idea. Might steal it for future ideas.
