Eek - first auction, asked for BIN figure - how much?

I've finally plucked up the courage to list some stuff on ebay, including an old wooden patio table I've had in the garage for YEARS, and someone's asked for a buy it now price 'cos they're away when it finishes.

The problem is I haven't got a clue what to ask..! I originally bought it from John Lewis, so can't have been cheap, but I can't find any similar ones on completed listings. This clear-out will be helping to fund our very probable move to Australia, so I don't want to give it away, but it is my first sale, so want it to go smoothly!

The item's here : hardwood garden table

Any ideas?

Thanks guys...

Although similar (shape) tables appear to sell, they don't seem to go for much, although none have been in as good condition as your

i'd be tempted to ask for £25 - BUT I know nothing about these tables (I'm just going on the sale price of the others)

Thanks - I was thinking about asking £20. Do I just reply to the message and if she says yes that's acceptable then add the BIN to the listing?
