    A friend of mine wants to sell me her diapers that she used with her child. She said she spent $200 on then all and wants to sell them to me at that price. How much do diapers deppreciate when used but well taken care of?

    She has 20 snugglebottoms--size has been discontinued, she is unsure of the size,

    6 Heavenly bottoms
    5 diaper doublers
    5 Nicky covers

    Any suggestions on what to offer her?
    TIA

    I don;t think you should pay her retail for used.. I would say 50-80% or retail depending on condition.....

    I agree

    It's not even the depreciation factor...Second hand things cost less. Even in second hand stores, clothing new with tags on them are cheaper. Also, I bet you would not have personally picked those covers had you bought them new. I think I would offer her $90 to $110 if they are in great condition.

    How long did she use them? I wouldn't pay retail price even if they were in exellent condition, but if she used them for any length of time, they must have some wear. Louisa's snugglebottoms were worn for about a year and a half, and some are in the rag bag now.

    It really depends on condition--stains, tears etc...
    Snuggle bottoms are really basic cotton flannelette diapers. New they're about 6 for 25.00 w/velcro closures. Maybe offer 1.50/2.00per diaper, if they're in great or excellent condition. On the covers, it would once again depend on the condition and how much life is left in them.
