How much should I sell my leather jacket for? It's a black bomber jacket and I've purchased it brand new in December 2003 and the jacket is in good shape.

I'm gonna be selling it at a yard sale

try 45.00 to clean it may be costly! or try 55.--, then lower the price if it does not sell

Clothes don't do very well at a yard sale. I doubt you'll get more than $10 for it. But i'd try for at least $20. If you think it's worth more, put it on Craigslist or Ebay.

Bomber jackets aren't in style anymore - you probably get about $20 would be my guess.

What brand is it? How much did you originally pay for it?

I can't remember the brand, I've paid $90 (it was 30% off) for it at Maurice's back in December 2003.

I think I'll sell it for $15.

Have you ever held a yard sale before? How beat up is this jacket? Put a sign on it that says the original retail price for it was $135 and that you want $35 for it. Someone will offer you $10 for it, then you can compromise at $15. I think that you should try to get $25 for it. Any less and you should either keep it or give it away to a friend.

Basically, price everything higher than your minimum desired price. Then you have room to negotiate. A lot of people won't buy unless they think that they are really getting a good deal on it. They are looking for a discount on your already good prices.

I really appreciate your ideas on what I should do with my leather jacket and the jacket is still in good shape for its age and I haven't worn it since 2006 (I wore it alot back in 2003-05), I will try to sell it in the $25-35 range so I could get something out of it, there are no tears on my leather jacket and it has been waterproofed.

Don't be afraid to mark it $50 even. Maybe halfway through your sale you can announce that everything is half-price.
