Though that BrooksFlannel shirt everyone went nuts over did sell to a guy in Norway for $61.
With BIN I sold a pair of Canali Pleated and Zanella Pleated for $30 + $6 S&H. Had I auctioned them, they'd probably end up somewhere near what you posted. I just listed some other trousers with pretty wishful prices (significantly higher than $30) and I'm convinced that someone will come along and buy them, eventually. It might take 2 months, but it will happen. Granted, you can't price everything like that, but I'd rather wait the 2 months and sell 'em for 5-7x what they'd go for at auction in 7 or 10 days.
One strategy is to build up a large inventory of BIN items, large enough that while each individual item may take a "long" time to sell, you're selling stuff on somewhat of a regular basis because as a new item begins its journey, another's is ending.
