|I am a full propenent for making as much money as you can.
I agree 100% with you on this, Meg. It's ridiculous to think that a mama shouldn't sell her items wherevere she'll get the most money, and on ebay, honestly, it's the buyers who set the price.
However, it has seemed to me in the past that WAHMS who have a "capitalist" slant, or who get really big and successful, are looked down on by diapering mamas (fuzzibunz, anyone remember that?!) There's a "little guy" mentality that buyers like to see in their WAHMs, and it's my opinion that any wahm who would suddenly up her prices from say, $20 to $50, would be slammed up, down and around the diapering forums. She's be labelled a greedy, capitalist pig, for sure. So, I think the suggestion that a WAHM should just raise her prices when ebay auctions of her goods go high is a bit off base. There's a lot more that goes into the WAHM's position than just whether or not there are a few people willing to pay high prices for her goods. Let's face it, in the diapering world, reputation and perception is everything, and if a WAHM is percieved as greedy and just trying to make a buck, she won't be successful.
