Subterranean Press book marks and chapbook
Posted 01 May 2012 - 02:08 PM
I am not soliciting bids, but I am wondering if I should have included the bookmarks and the chapbook. I told a person who inquired about them that I would have included them had the auction gone over a certain amount, but that is against Ebay rules.
Any thoughts or recommendations on this?

That seems smart to me - selling the limiteds without the additional material that came with them might not hurt the value as much as breaking up a matching set of books, but I'd think most buyers would expect to get them. I'm storing the signed bookmarks etc on my matching lettered set separately, but if/when they go, they'll all go.

The way I figured it, and I spend much time last night debating what I wanted to do, there are some people out there who truly do want to have the two bonus items, and these people might be willing to pass up a matched set in the hopes of getting a set which comes with them.

Alternatively, I really don't think the bookmarks and chapbook by themselves are worth that much at all.
So unless you want to keep the bookmarks and chapmark for some reason, I would just include them in the set.

If Ebay say its against the rules, thats their rule. But what they don't know wont hurt them, and its not as if your tricking the buyer anyhow.
