Pricing a used snowboard for resale/auction: Please Help!!
posted by CitizenD to Sports, Hobbies, & Recreation (2 answers total)
I'm on the board of directors for a local theater company, and each year we do a live/silent auction for fundraising. I'm constantly bugging my friends to give me their stuff - so that we can auction it off and keep paying our stellar staff!
A friend, through her employer*, passed on to me a used snowboard for our group to auction off. Here are the details:
Boots: appear to be a different brand? "Switch" brand?
Case: Dakine brand
I have googled the hell out of this board, but do not find it. It appears to be older than 07-08 season. But, I'm out of steam. I'm not a snowboarder, and know (or care) little about this stuff.
Tell me, hivemind, what would be an appropriate minimum auction price for this board/case combo? Would $100 be too much?
Also, relatedly: do people just not buy used snowboards? I don't find a huge market out there, so it's worth asking. Perhaps there's something inherent in snowboarding (and/or personalizing one's board) that makes second-hand purchases ill-advised or taboo.
Help? Comments? Thanks!!!
*The board was abandoned at her employer's office building; after contacting everyone on staff, no one claimed it; so, they were going to give it to Goodwill when my friend asked if she could pass it on to me.
