I decided to experiment with eBay a bit in December. Listed a couple of things - one of which cost $30 to buy new online and the item I listed was in like new condition. I started the bidding at one penny. Guess what it sold for? Similar story with the other items. Needless to say I won't be unloading any of my stuff for a penny there. Craigslist has taken over the "get rid of your stuff/find new stuff cheap" market.
