I'm cleaning out my fabric and crafting stashes. I put an auction with 7 yards of Harry Potten Fabrics up on ebay. My DD who is now 25 was enamored of the books/movies in High School. Still is, but not to the point that I'm making her a HP quilt. The fabrics were all pretty cheap (sales at the big fabric stores), but quilt fabrics now a days are $10 a yard and up.
I'm not expecting to recoup all I paid for the fabrics and other items that I'm listing - I just want to clean out my stashes and make enough to pad my paypal account for when I get a yearning to buy a few things on ebay. However, I will have the hassles of shipping, etc., to deal with.
I started the auction at a low price and real shipping costs. Someone contacted me pretty quickly and asked if I would consider making the auction Buy It Now at $50 for her.
The auction has 5 days to go, it's at $11, and has 21 views and 12 watchers. I think it will probably go over $50 so I'm really inclined to say no. $50 is probably what I paid for the fabrics and a little for my time in selling them. AND I think it would be rude and perhaps unethical, to change the auction parameters not only after the auction started, but after having so many people interested.
What do you think?
