BamaTanya Posted February 17, 2008 Share Posted February 17, 2008 Of course, I know it depends upon how much you want it and how hard it is to find. Sometimes, though, I find myself bidding on something and the bidding on a USED item climbs higher than the new purchase price. On OOP books, I generally try to spend no more (including shipping) than 1/2 the new price. On other used items -- accessories, for instance, I don't want to spend more than 1/4, especially if I could still purchase a new one. When things are used, I want a bargain! Using a book doesn't really decrease its value, but I still want it to be worth the "risk" of buying something from a stranger instead of a bookstore. Maybe I just keep running into collectors who are determined to purchase something no matter what the cost -- or they just get caught up in the bidding frenzy! What about you?
