Cafe Corner set 10182

beccaseraph7beccaseraph7 IndianaMember Posts: 5
I just missed out on Cafe Corner set 10182 on ebay for $325 with instructions
included. I have been searching for this set at a reasonable price for like
6 months now. It is all I need to complete my modular collection. Sadly, I
can't afford the $500-$600 typical price tag.

Since loosing out on the auction I am determined even more to find this set.

I thought I would post here... does anyone have this set with or without instructions
available for sale for around that price (I can go up a little) for sale?

    I haven't been around in a long time.  Came back on to finally try to get rid of the last sets I've had stored in rubbermaids.  Here is a link to my old Post.  I still have both these sets.  At this point I'd be willing to do $300 shipped for my brinklinked CC with no instructions

    Must of been 3-4 months ago because I haven't seen one sell on Ebay for that cheap with instructions. $325 is a great deal!!! Good Luck :)

    $550-600 is the going rate for a used one. They would easily sell for $500 on BL. So anyone selling one for $300 is essentially gifting you $200.

    If you lost one for $325, then learn to bid what you are willing to pay.

    Any chance this can be moved over to the Marketplace?

    ya...for all we know the winning bidder could have place a max at $500...just no one bid it up...had beccaseraph7 gone after it most likely it would have gone for much more then 325

    Yes, that is why bidders should bid what they are willing to pay. That way if they don't get it, someone else was willing to pay more and they have no need to complain someone else got a cheap one.

    ^ This.  I learnt this lesson last year on a cheap #10124.  It didn’t appear to have much interest, but I also wasn’t 100% sure if it was complete or not.  I figured I could pay $100 & still have a great deal after affording to replace all of the rare parts if they were all missing, so in went a bid of $101, really the max I was willing to pay.  Winning bid?  $102, after I’d gone to bed.  Had I truly gone after it, maybe I would’ve gotten it for $103, or if the buyer bid properly for the max they were willing to pay, it could’ve gone for much more.  Such is the way it goes.  As with a ‘cheap’ cafe corner, sometimes you just don’t have the budget to be able to do more.
