Selling (another) pushchair, I only bought it the other week but not liking it so want to sell it whilst its still in good condition to make my money back. Anyway I bought for £65, put on the selling page this week for £70 thinking someone would haggle, I've had someone really interested for a couple of days now and she's been trying to sell her pram to buy it. She messaged me yesterday saying someone was looking at hers, and then again today saying she had the money for mine (the full £70) and could she collect on Mon and I said yes fine.
A few minutes after someone messaged and offered £80 . Now, I think I should (and will ) sell to the first lady for £70 but H says I'm being soft and should just sell for £80 to the other person. I don't think I could though, knowing she's been trying to sell her prams and knowing how keen she is on it, if I tell her I've changed my mind , well thats just mean isn't it?
I am going to do the decent thing and sell to the first lady but AM I being soft??! H gave me a look and didn't say much. He thinks I'm a bit mad anyway with all my pram buying. Does being a nice person go out of the window when it comes to money?

if you've said you'll sell to the first lady i would stick with that, (and im not soft. i would just be really upset if i was her)

Or perhaps what you should be asking yourself is, do you want being a nice person to go out of the window for you?
Its only £10 which isn't much of a difference. If it was me I'd sell it to the person I'd agreed to sell it to because I would feel happier in myself, and because that's what I said I would do.

Thank you. I am selling to the first lady, I just wondered if I was being daft about it.

I'd sell to the first lady, however if she's not collected it by Monday then i'd contact the other lady and say it's available if she wants it, for £80

Should I end the ebay listing now? Or wait?

Can the 2nd lady collect any quicker? Will you be selling buy it now through ebay or ending the listing early? I would sell to 1st lady but let her know someone else has put an offer in on the buggy so whilst she has first refusal if she doesn't collect on Monday you'll sell to 2nd lady in case she was going to start messing you about collecting it (I remember reading someone had that problem earlier this week - was it you ML?).

I would stick to the agreement to sell on Monday but tell the second lady that if the first one doesn't turn up, she can have it on Tuesday. Some of these buyers really mess you around so only give them one chance, especially if you know you've got someone else lined up.

Thanks all, first lady is now coming Sunday rather than Monday so I guess she's pretty keen.
Sshh yes it was me.. I have a bit of a buggy fetish.
