I saw a baby Bjorn carrier at the thrift store today and looked it up when I got home to see how much it sells for it. No way was I paying the $20 the store was asking but I was curious just the same.
Apparently it is the BABY BJORN ACTIVE INFANT CARRIER LUMBAR SUPPORT and is worth about $120 brand new. Well, this one looked new but without a box. They resale fairly well and some for as much as $100 new & $30+ used.
But here is the catch:
Check out these sales:
This one started at .99 cents with free shipping and never sold.
LN BABY BJORN INFANT CARRIER LUMBAR SUPPORT ACTIVE EUC
FREE Expedited Shipping
This one however:
Baby Bjorn Active Carrier
$10.00 Standard Shipping
It started out at $9.99, had $10 shipping, less of a title, and sold after 13 bids for $53
The difference? I don’t know. The stock photo maybe? I know that makes me feel more confident when I’m bidding, even if I know it was used…silly, I know but we all like to buy items that look like they came from a department store!
Oh, and the auctions closed 5 days apart.
So should I go invest $20 and hope it sales for $50+? I don’t know. I think I might just wait and see if it goes on sale next week, but I doubt it. It was really nice and pretty obvious where it was on the rack.
Oh, the choices when one resells!
