Re: What to price at and where to sell a baby bjorn carrier

I wuold go for locally or Ebay. Is is new in the box? Can you try and return it? Even if you had to take the lowest sale price you would get more than trying to sell it.

The problem with this logic is that no one cares what something cost you. They'll only pay what it's worth to them. It would suck to be out $139 on a brand new item, but that's the nature of B/S/T forums.

OP - I would definitely try to sell locally or on eBay. Bjorns and other similar carriers do not sell well on here, and especially not on TBW.

Re: What to price at and where to sell a baby bjorn carrier

really sorry... they got a bad rap (I'm guessing from other companies since they had the market cornered 5-6 years ago) and marketing is having a hard time coming back from it. Its a good carrier, but not many in the US believe it.

Try local.

People stay away from it because of it being a crotch dangler mainly, and crappy weight distribution (comfort).

I bought mine for $30, sold for $40. I would try locally unless you want a more than 50% loss.

don't worry, don't think anyone will try to sell you one

OP, you'll be able to find someone. It will just take longer than it did 5 years ago. I don't mind mine (guess I'm just strong because I find it comfy and both kids slept in it) and don't plan on passing it on until I know I won't have more. I did make sure I talked to drs after all the talk came out. There are still a couple people out there that are ok with them. You won't get 100 for it, though. Good luck!!

edit: definitely look for people who want to have their baby with them (hands free) but aren't comfortable using slings- or don't want an awkward insert. I got a ton of brand new various slings past on to me by every new mom I know IRL-- no one wanted the learning curve/ didn't feel secure/ just something. Great for me, but I was disappointed for them.

I was elaborating on the reasons. Those are the main two. Thanks for the snark and justification though, defensiveness is fab
