Prices seem high?

I have been looking through FSOT, at mostly children's clothes and trainers. It seems that a lot of items are priced high. I am surprised by some of the prices for clothes that are more play condition w/ holes, stains ect and toys that are missing pieces or have broken pieces. Also sellers, selling items in lots for quite a bit of $, I guess I think that I would be getting more of a price "break" or free shipping if I were to buy a huge amount together, but I have been instead seeing things like "will sell separately for x amount" x amount being a higher price than what I would think is close to fair value, comparable to market value and/or EXORBITANT to the break-down of the "lot" price like more than the normal $2-$3 each. Just seems different lately and I am not noticing this elsewhere like Hyenacart or Tbw. Is it just me?

Shipping? Clothes are heavy to ship.

Re: Prices seem high?

Well, if the prices are too high, people don't buy, and the seller is faced with the choice to drop the price or not sell the item at all. You can always make an offer.

But yes, I price higher here because it's a PITA to chase the PMs, wait for PP, find another seller when one falls through, package, go to the post office ... I price lower on Craigslist and accept the lowest from consignment.
