Etiquette for selling stuff !!!!!

OK guys this is more of a rant than anything else & I have done it in here as it could be construde to relate to another member so I will keep in here & not in the public view ..........

I may have been bought up diffrently to some butttttttttt........

Short story is ...... parts were offered for sale .... I enquired about a few of them in the hope to get the old girl up and going a lot better. As it works out now it seeems because I didnt want all of the parts & only 1 of the things that were offered (a totally diffrent part to the major stuff & yes it was in my wish list to start) I have been told this person would prefer to sell the parts to someone closer ........

To me it just seems like sour grapes because I didnt have all of the dollars for the rest & did the right thing & let him know about it .........


Is my perception of ettiqute all wrong !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

No

Some people are just idiots

However, at the end of the day they are selling the stuff.

Re: Etiquette for selling stuff !!!!!

If you expressed and interest and we're willing to pay the offered price, then you should get the item, not someone who comes along later and is closer, or easier for them to deal with.

Re: Etiquette for selling stuff !!!!!

Without offending anyone....i don't like the "make me an offer" statement.
i just think that if you are going to sell somthing you should have an idea of what price you would be happy with....its as though people are waiting for a fool to give them a dream offer.

I kinda agree but sometimes you may not know what the item is worth, so you just like to see what you can get for it..

Re: Etiquette for selling stuff !!!!!

then if they do NOT know what it is worth, then how come you offer say $50 for it, and they alwasy say I was expecting $75 even though you would only pay $60 at most for the item.

I agree they hope for a dreamer price, and then wont settle for best offer in the end anyways, either put it up with a price, or shut up and accept the offer on the table.

Oh and yes mother nature I agree, first in best dressed, if you have the $'s to pay, then you get it, not just could not be bothered and sell to some one closer, unless they have to organise postage, and the perosn closer will pick up, but in that case, just say will not post in the first place.
