What would you have paid for this locker ?

This was a 10 x 10. The left half is shown (front to back) in the pics. The right side of the locker was flattened cardboard boxes.

People estimated how many planters x what they THOUGHT they could sell them for and bid accordingly.

You?

Wow, hard to say. Not the kind of stuff that would interest me but would think it would go for at least $300-$400. Great for someone with a physical store but that's not me.

First let me say I have a store with a chain link fenced area so having something like this would be great but... It is the wrong time of year to be selling pots. They would most likely sit most of the winter. I would have set a limit at 450.00 if it was spring. Right now I would only go $300.00. Sometimes you have to think about how well this stuff will sell during the current time of year and how long you will have to wait to get your money back.

Two guesstimates down; only over 3,000 member guesses left!

OK, I'll wait 'till maybe 6 guesses are in to do the reveal.  ;D

A storage unit full of pot? Only in California!  ;)  Well, maybe Texas too.  ;D

Saw the buyer of this locker selling at a flea on Saturday. He had brought out about 20 of them and was selling them for $10 each. Saw him again Sunday at same flea and he had 18 of the 20 left from the day before.

Still waiting for more guesses on what he paid for the locker. ;D

Well, if he's selling them for ten dollars a piece, I would guess he picked them up well under $300. Perhaps $150?

The majority of the pots had store stickers on them for $15 each so he had help in determining a price point for his sales.  There were 105 pots. 7 were broken. So 98 to sell.

I would have bid $200 max. Those sized planters are tough to sell. It's the size, the style, the time of year. Everything is bad. Plus, with that many, I'd have to store them somewhere, that's an added fee. I wouldn't have even bid on that locker.

Buy the way MM is holding out I'm guessing the bid was really high......hmmmm........$1280?



Wait..... could people see the $15 store stickers from the door before bidding?   Then my guess is $620.



Personally I'd have walked away.  No place to store.  I can't see those being a fast sell in my area.

Saw this seller again this weekend at the flea market. He still had 20 pots though I don't know if they were the same ones as last weekend.

He paid $500 for the locker. You can look back through the posts above and see who was closest. I would have gone $200.
