Odd question, bu this seems an appropriate place to ask... What do you guys do when there's someone selling something you want at a ridiculously inflated price with a "best offer" button? Does the etiquette about not lowballing not apply? There's a couple auctions like this for me recently, but as an example: I remember a while back someone selling an old tweed (like Brooks or something) nothing spectacular, but a pattern I really liked. You see stuff like that go unbidded on at low prices all the time, at most you might get lucky and through some fluke get $150 for an old pre-outlet 346 brooks tweed. But this seller had something like a $899/best offer price. He was one of those guys who quotes the highest new retail price for their 30 year old item. Under these situations is a 10-20% offer with a kind explanation acceptable?
