I agree with previous comments about pricing your items realistically. It's tiresome to sift through endless posts asking 80-90% (or more!) of retail price, "firm." Like cars, mass-market furniture (Ikea, Crate & Barrel, etc.) depreciates substantially once you get it to your home, even if you only keep it a short time.

Some good advice I was once given is that a reasonable price for a piece of mass-market furniture in excellent condition is 50-60% of its original retail price. Guidelines might differ for antiques or higher-end items. Anyone else have a rule of thumb for sensible pricing?
