I have one for sale on ebay right now and on diaperswappers.com and no one is biting. If you've sold one recently or bought one recently how did you sell and/or where did you buy it from?<br><br>
I feel like I have it priced right considering it was only used for a couple of months and I'm also throwing in some misc items - some that are used and some NEVER used.<br><br>
TIA! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/thumb.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="thumbs up">

It'll probably sell eventually as long as you have it priced near what competition has theirs priced at.<br><br>
I personally sold my last one via Craigslist. I see a lot of them on there all of the time. I'm less likely to buy a used one (if I do) on eBay due to shipping fees. I'd actually prefer to buy one from an MDC mama before eBay as well, though. If that makes sense? LOL. <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

I tried craigslist and they flagged it for some reason. Is there a way to post it on MDC?

Have you included a set of new tubing? If not you could try doing that (and upping the price to reflect that). I know when I bought a breast pump used off of ebay I only considered ones where a new, unopened set of tubing was included because I'm lazy and didn't want to have to make two purchases. I was buying a "niche" pump though that it's hard to find parts for so that may have increased my laziness.

No, I haven't because I'm unsure where I can purchase something like that. Thoughts?

I know some lactation stores (like the ones in/near hospitals that sell supplies, maybe Babies R Us? though I think BRU just has the bigger parts and the little white flaps and that's it?) have the tubing and such.. otherwise you can find sets of tubing, etc. online.<br><br>
Your Craigslist may be different or more heavily "policed." The one for my area, there's at least 20-50 pump listings at any given time.<br><br>
To list on MDC, I think you have to purchase a subscription or something. I forget, lol.
