urgent car boot sale advice wanted!

I know I'm in the wrong category, but there wasn't a category that otherwise fit!

I am braving a car boot sale tomorrow, with a load of the dc's clothes. they are very good quality, and mostly Gap. No supermarket clothes.

What should I charge? Is £1 ok for a thick t-shirt/top? What about a baseball-type jacket? Or a dress?

Sorry to be so thick, but I've never sold clothes at a boot sale before, and obviously one has to pitch things lower than e-bay.

Any advice really appreciated. Thanks!

You could always try selling stuff at £1 - £2 an item. If after awhile they dont seem to be selling, try lowering. Though Id happily pay £1-£2 for Gap stuff! Any boys things for ages 6-12 months? grin

50p - £2 mainly for clothes.

agree with misdee but people will haggle with you for the lowest price possible

Mostly big boys' Gap stuff!

Yes, £2 seems nearer the mark, and then I can have a sale later on if my prices aren't attracting any customers.
