I just sold (on Facebook--on my local Sale Want Trade group) a huge box of candles as you describe and I got $5.00

There were 20 candles (mix of tapers, jars, tea lights, and fat candles. Most were used once or twice (18/20, 2 were brand new).

I had reduced them several times before mine sold (I started at $15) and sold for $5. Start high and maybe you will have luck. If not, accept best offer.

Happy sales!

When I price things, it's how much would I pay if I were purchasing the item and how much do I want to receive.

Price with a little room to negotiate so it's a win/win situation.

Example - you know you want at least $10. I would price at $12 or $13, that way the person negotiating will most likely say $10 and it's a win/win situation. You get the price you want and the person does too.

Basically you can change any price you want. That does not mean a person will pay it. Selling used candles is a lot different than selling new ones. You should try and sell them off in lots or in a group or you can sell them one by one. The best way to know the price is to look at them and decide how much you would actually pay for the candle. This normally gives you a good idea about how much another person is willing to pay for the item.

Research online how much the candles are going for and you can decide how much you would like to charge.
