    Seems like there's more of a market for the larger sizes too.

    I just had a look on the Bonds website and all the cute patterns are only available in tiny sizes.

    Seems crazy to me, I only buy bonds when they do 40% off. A bit like the world of babywearing, I know of people who have paid 2k for a woven wrap! I have much better things to spend my money on.

    Supply and demand. If lots of people really want something, then up goes the price. Seems nuts but hey, if they have the money; their choice. I do wonder though whether people justify the cost thinking that they'll make it back if/when they sell, but the bubble has to burst some time.

    I really don't understand it either and if anything, it's turned me off buying bonds.

    In saying that, I wish I had a suit to sell for $182!!

    $182 for that, what are people thinking? No way would I spend over $20 for that but it would better be brand new.

    Far out. $182!!
    Imagine all the brand new bonds onsies you could buy for that.
    I love bonds onsies. They're cute. They're even more cute on sale in the stores or discounted at Trade Secret!

    Yeah, it's made me think about stuff i have bought and put away for when my bub is bigger! It's just madness though, and i find it hard to understand how it could really be worth more than when i bought it - yep, mostly on sale!

    I think the bottom is really falling out of the bonds market. I've dabbled in a little reselling after realising that the zippies I had bought for my daughter to grow into were highly sought-after patterns. I paid $15 each and sold them in excess of $50 each :-O I did an auction thing on one of the Facebook groups. I think that one up the top was actually a sample, so there is only that one in that size (maybe?) I totally agree though, I'd never spend big $ on something that miss 10 months is going to stain with her breakfast and possibly even poop on!

    Default Re-selling Bonds stuff - what's it all about?

    And to think I gave all my bonds stuff away to family members. I coulda gone on an O/S holiday LOL.

    I don't think I have spent that much on an outfit for me except for things for weddings, so no way would I spend that much on ONE suit for one of the kids.
