Is this a good deal?

On my local craigslist someone is selling:
27 bg 3.0 2 inserts with each
4 fuzzibuns
2 grobabys
2 swaddlebees
4 thirsties covers
12 dsq prefolds
wipe warmer
diaper pail
2 pail liners
24 wipes
and maybe a wetbag or two.
They want $400 for all. Says dipes are in excellent condition. Used one year. Thoughts?

I just emailed her to see if she will sell just the BG to me. $400 is such a lot of cash kwim? But I also thought it was a good deal.... hmmm.

yeah seems like a good deal to me. especially if you judge most of those things to be about $10 each(which many can be on FSOT) some a little more, some a little less!

Re: Is this a good deal?

BG 3.0 aren't quite "worth" what the 4.0 are. They don't sell for much on FSOT. I would really inspect them all before buying. Even with the BGs being 3.0, if they are all in VGUC or better, I think its a good deal.

It costs roughly twice that new. So yes, I most certainly would consider that a good deal.

I'd ask for $350 and she'd likely take it. If in good condition and you inspect the elastic for over wear and the inside for holes or break down... it's a descent price. How long are you planning to want to use them though?

I agree with this. I think generally used diapers are priced a little high. One year old BG pockets will likely need elastic and laundry tabs replaced, and the elastic replacement is tougher on the 3.0s than it is on the 4.0s. I wouldn't pay more than $300 for the bunch.

I think it's a little steep for 3.0s, as I don't value them to be that high, so you could probably talk her down.

Re: Is this a good deal?

honestly i don't think so. For $400 you can buy a new stash. I wouldn't buy them. I like diapers i know are super clean. I think the BG will hold some stink on that pocket layer inside. I would buy some new, or something like prefold/flats that you know are super clean, or can get super clean with a little bleach.
