I'm not much of a seller and I don't really have much experience selling clothes/accessories. But recently I put a Hugo Boss wallet on craigslist for $10--one that I had initially paid $130 for. I got zero responses. Is this pretty typical when trying to sell used clothing/accessories? Should I just donate it to the Good Will? I have a few items I'd like to get rid of, but I'm wondering if it's even worth the effort.

In my area at least, Craigslist is not the place to move something like that. eBay might fetch you some cash, but things have been slow the past year or so. I regularly watch items from a variety of different hobbies and interests (ski, scuba, model trains, NIB shoes, watches, cameras) and there are many things that just don't seem to be moving as fast as they used to, especially at Buy it Now or with a reserve. Put it up starting at .99, and it might go for $5 or $35, it can be really hard to tell. Don't know if there is much demand for a used wallet though, I mean, it's probably been in a trouser pocket for a while.

I thought craigslist is just for creepy nerd hookups?
