Would this sell on ebay? And if so at what price?

I bought a silver charm bracelet last year. I actually bought it for a keepsake for baby dd to wear when shes older but I ordered it at an ungodly hour during night feeds, looking back now I dont like it. I think its too brash, I must have been tired!

Its a sterling silver chain with four baby related charms on and it cost me £65. Its never been out of the box. Does anyone know if this is likely to sell on ebay? Is there a better place to sell it?

Also, if I do list on ebay whatvwould you start bidding at?

Thanks for reading smile

Do a search on eBay for similar things and also search completed listings to see what other charm bracelets have gone for. I'm sure it would sell, but my experience of these things is that you never get what you have paid. Perhaps I'm just bad at listings!

Could you regift?

I think MoetEtPantsOn is probably right about the slim chance of getting your money back if you sell via eBay. Another thing you could think about is getting some extra links put in and buying a couple of additional charms and keeping the bracelet to give to your dd when she is much older than you had in mind when you bought it. You could just put it away for now and splash out the extra money for the charms and the links when you're feeling flush some time. It might good as an 18th birthday present?

wait for free listing and start at the lowest you would sell for ending in the evening - I think you would be lucky to get back half what you paid for it. And make sure you send with a signature to prove delivery too.

Well you bought it, so someone else might well like it.
You can but try.

Search completed listings to see what similar items sold for.

Having had a look at ebay for that sort of listing they don't seem to be selling well, and those that do sell don't go for much more than a tenner (unless they are vintage or a big name brand).

Could you try taking it to a local independent jeweller and seeing if they would buy it from you?

Thanks all the replies I dont think ebay is the way to go. I will keep hold of it for now and maybe give it to dd when shes 18 like dotnet suggested smile

Think it would be hard to sell as it has an april birthstone charm on.
