E Allen decoys
I?m trying to sell off some decoys and wanted an option on what you guys thought.
I was trying to move 18 eallens and 2 cork. The e Allen?s are a mix of ones I painted ones I bought and some I started or never got around too. All but the corks and the pintails have never seen the water.I was asking 400 for all. Figured $20 a bird was a fair price to ask. What do you guys think. Opinion would be appreciated

I can't speak for the e Allen decoys personally, but if you listed them for sale off of this site I think you may have a hard time moving them at that price, especially without a bundle deal. I could be wrong. Around here most used duck decoys (granted I know these are new) are closer to the $10 range. I assume most people are more interested in quantity rather than quality for this. If they can get 10 prepainted mallards for $100 they aren't going to want to spend $200 and have to do the work.

Only things I see over $20 each are geese.

Also, on Lou's website most of the e Allen's are $17.50.

However, don't quote only me, I'm sure someone else has a more educated reply. Just my $0.02

I think most people are looking at what u did. This is where they were when I was buying them. I wish those were the prices. I remember buying painted ones for no less than $40. I agree on the price of plastics. I just figured I?d ask on here since this is the site that helped me a lot in the past with a lot of painting and making my own decoys.

I just looked again and the prices were higher. Somehow I navigated to an older page while on the site. I wondered if it were right but when you posted your reply I clicked the link right off the main page. --Lou may want to look into fixing that.

Anyways, seems fair, but I'd think hard pressed unless you find someone who knows what you're offering in and out.

I agree that?s why I turned to the opinion of others who know what they are. I haven?t been to the turkerton show in a while but may have to take them up there to get them moved. Thanks for the option always like an outside view

Actually, the majority of that size birds are $30 to $32 each. Pricing is in the catalog...as stated on front page and proud going up due to huge price hikes on our raw materials.
Holler with any questions.
Lou
