|How do WAHMs feel when their items are sold higher than their retail price?
It pisses them off.
No, let me qualify that. When an item is resold by auction, and the opening bid is lower than the purchase price, and the BIN price is the same as or lower than the purchase price, *most* WAHM's I know actually get a kick out of seeing how high it will go.
What pisses them off (and no, I'm not speaking for myself here - the only things of mine that ever went above retail were because of e-bay bidding) is when someone posts on the TP, asking a price higher than that paid to the WAHM, or when the opening bid or BIN on an auction is higher than the purchase price. This is *particularly* infuriating when it happens to be a custom diaper that had a lot of work go into it (often with the WAHM caving to special requests just to please the customer, even when that isn't their normal mode of operation), or when someone sells off freebie diapers.
We all know that it's not up to us - once you sell the diaper (or give it away), nobody but the owner has any say in how much they can be sold for. But I do know that it does tick off many WAHM's. And they *do* notice.
Oh, and while we're on the subject.....it also pisses WAHM's off when people neglect to mention that the diaper being sold is a second, or an older style, or has had modifications made to it. It is very important, to maintain the integrity of the WAHM's business, that this be done!
