OK I'm the high bidder of an auction with a reserve price and I was thinking of e-mailing the seller to see if I win the auction if she'll go ahead and sell me the diaper or if she's planning to relist if the reserve is not met. I was also thinking of asking what the reserve was so that I could bid that amount. What do you ladies think I want some wool really bad and I just want to know if I have a chance of getting some.

I say go ahead and ask her. Can't hurt. I've done something like that in the past and it worked out well for me! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/wink1.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="wink1">

If it's not selling I say go ahead and ask... Ask first if she would be willing to sell it for your final bid amount, and if not then ask if she would be willing to sell it if you paid her reserve?

I'd email her. You never know what she'll say. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Although I never usually have reserves on my stuff, I would definitely tell someone what the reserve price is, if I had one.

It cant hurt to ask -- not like you are asking her to end the auction and sell it to you for less. If you have the high bid at the end and the reserve isnt met seems like she shouldnt mind telling you if she plans to sell it to you or not.
