If she offered less than the starting bid, then I would agree with you, but the seller must have been ok with $19 if that was the starting bid.
If the OP had of bidded in time, she would have been the winning bidder at $19.
Perhaps the sells thought she would get more than one bid, but I've noticed eBay has been a bit slow lately.

She could've only had one bid and have to sell it for that.
I've bought and sold a few things for 99c. That is the risk we take sometimes!
For a used, frayed pram, I don't know what else they expect?
I once had a toy box/bookshelf combined that I listed on eBay for $30 and it didn't sell. Then I got offered $20 for it. I wasn't offended at all. It was probably worth $100.

eBay is slowly dying- they are trying to move away from the second hand market place. Therefore there are less bidders, so if you were to sell something you are much better of setting a higher opening bid or a buy it now only option- I've been caught out a few times and sold things for a lot cheaper than I wanted but that's how it goes and it's a legal contract. I have also picked up things super cheap this way so it works both ways
It's their stupid fault for listing it for so damn cheap if they wanted more. They are lucky nobody noticed in time to snare a bargain! Idiots lol
gumtree is much better if you wish to sell goods these days.

Even if she wasn't happy to take only $19, that's the risk she took by putting it up on eBay. Someone offering $1 on top of that and saving the trouble of putting it for sale elsewhere should be met with an appropriate response. She took the risk of putting it up for 19... Does she expect to get an offer of 50 or 100 after that? It was an offer, plain and simple. The rude ***ch could have declined nicely or come back with a different price.
Your response is better than what mine would have been, but I don't bite my tongue for anyone.

I'd probably reply "Kiss my a$$" and leave it the hell alone.

Ah, I always hear people whinge that something sold for less than they wanted... you should list for the lowest price you're willing to take or buy it now for x amount or best offer so people have an idea of how much you want for it.
I don't think your question was out of line and although I'd be tempted to tell her to go ***** herself, I would reply explaining that you offered what you did because her starting bid was $19 and you thought she must have been willing to sell it for that price.
