On the subject of not paying too much, I need tact lessons on how to deal with a couple of types or maybe different sides of the same type of sellers...
#1 He's got "too much to list" photos of multiple items, piled haphazard, giving the impression that he's got no time, doesn't know what anything is and just wants rid of it, until you say "I'll give you $20 for that green one" and all of a sudden he knows what it is in great detail and wants 90% of retail despite lacking box, cables, manuals etc.
#2 He might give individual good pics, enough description to figure out what it is, say it's all going cheap, send him an offer, so you send him an offer, then he's all pretend offended because some dipshit listed it at $2000 on eBay or Amazon and you didn't get very close to retail when it's 3 years old, looking well used and dusty and hasn't got manuals, cables etc... If you approach with, "well what do you actually want?" it's all "I don't know man, just what you think is reasonable. I'm ready to deal" then same thing, fake offended, way too low, don't you realise what this precious crap I can't be bothered naming my price for in the first place is worth.
*sigh* way too many of these clowns around, is there a "right" approach, or just freaking ignore them because nobody is getting anywhere with them.
Unicorn herding operations are proceeding, but all the totes of hens teeth and barrels of rocking horse poop give them plenty of hiding spots.
