I love thrift stores and antique shops (I'm sure most of you do also) and have a question about pricing. This is what got me thinking about how you know if something is worth the price being asked for it or not. I spotted a vintage Halloween tambourine in a local antique shop and the dealer wanted $59 for it but would go down to $42. Not knowing much about this item I wondered if that was a good price of not?? I told him I would think about it and come back if I wanted it. I walked to my car and got on EBay and checked vintage Halloween tambourines and low and behold there was the same tambourine for as low as 9.99 plus $6 shipping, far below the $42 quote in the antique shop. We are having a LARGE antique sellers gathering next week end and planning on going one day. My question is how do YOU know if something is worth the asking price or not? Do you use EBay as a gauge, is a site like "worth Point" worth the subscription price, what tips and tricks do you use if find the worth of an item? Normally thrift shops are not a problem pricing items because more are low anyway but I guess the antiques shops are the major problem for me. BTW here's the tambourine that got me thinking about this...
