    IME, it's better to start low than high. I generally start adult clothing around $7.99, unless it's NWT or something uber-special. Plus-size clothing generally tends to do pretty well.

    Do a search of Lane Bryant in ended auctions to get a feel for what sells, what keywords to use in your title, and what shipping generally runs in successful auctions. You may do better listing the Old Navy, Sears, and JCP together in a lot, but doublecheck in ended auctions to see how well they sell seperately.

    Ok not trying to pessimistic but I am going to be. I have two very good friends who used to sell on EBay and now own a consigment shop. I am sitting with one of them now and they are saying $45.00-$60.00 for the lot maybe $70.00 at the most. She says you are better off trying to sell them yourself in a yard sale or a consignment shop. She also said a lot of people buying clothing on Ebay are not buying for themselves but for resale. I know I myself am very thrifty and plus size and will not pay more than $5.00 for a pair of used jeans, even if they are next to new, and no more than $10-15.00 for any jacket. Sorry for being negative but that's what the girls tell me.

    If you want to make good prices on clothing on ebay, it is very important to include measurements. Since people can't try things on.

    Plus size clothing usually does fairly well with measurements.
    I'd rather be hated for who I am than loved for pretending to be someone I'm not.
