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

I have a carrier that is in near new condition that was given to me. My back can't handle it. The retail is $169 here - it's an air mesh one. I know that they can be found much cheaper in the states. Are bjorns a sought after carrier or do most people here look for wraps and slings? What should I price it at?
THANKS

I dont think baby bjorns are as popular as many other types of carrier, i would check out what others are selling them for in the FSOT baby carrier section, that should give you a better idea about what the "going" price is

It looks like you can get a brand new one from Amazon for $65 here, so maybe use that to price accordingly?

Likely it's not going to sell quickly or for very much. People aren't wanting those as much anymore - not as comfortable as a sling/wrap/other carrier for mom or baby.

$169 isn't it to expensive?... you could have been so disappointed. However, have you check this site if there are selling a carrier? if not you might try thebabywearer dot com,. I think you will find some trades and selling option there. Please don't sell your carrier for $30 that will be a total lost of $139...such a waste. Hope this helps!

I'd try Craigslist instead of here. I think it's much more likely to sell there than here where people are looking for wraps and SSCs more. As far as pricing, I always check ebay and CL to see what others are selling theirs for.

id say probably ebay. anyone that knows anything about carriers typically regard crotch danglers as garbage carriers

I'd try to sell it locally as well. I'm honestly not sure how much you could get for it, they don't have a great re-sell, even new. Maybe $30, $40?
