Am looking for nursery furniture for DD,

Verrrry small budget,

originally I was just going to get this for her

Its only for her baby bits,

but then Ive seen on ebay, the same sort of canvas wardrobe but in Pink, with frilly girlyness on it (lol) plus a small shelving unit with pink canvas and a bedside table (the bedside table is still boxed)

They said it all cost £125 from next about 18 months ago.

I emailed to see if they had a BIN price as I am local and can pick up and pay cash.

She replied and asked me what I was offering.

What do you think? How much would YOU say?

Oh I offered alot less than that blush

But then she can only say 'no' I suppose and then I can up my offer!

Thanks x

I would have said about 20. Second-hand furniture has very little resale value.

maybe around 35 pounds 40 at a stretch that sort of furniture isnt going for much more second hand my sis got set for about 20

This lot is only £50 from Argos. Is it similar to the Ebay set?

I would say 20. An item like that will only appeal to people who are local, so most of the people on ebay wont be wanting it anyway.
2nd hand furniture doesnt retain value very well, especially not if it is canvas and plywood.
If they say no then you could leave it till the auction ends, and then if there are no bids she might get back to you.

Have you tried freecycle if you have a limited budget?

wheresthehamster Wed 06-Aug-08 15:32:46

Agree. I put my perfect condition canvas wardrobe on there.

DisenchantedPlusBump Wed 06-Aug-08 16:55:41

Oh wow!

that argos one is perfect!

Might just go for that

I said £30
