I agree with the $500 retail estimate, give or take. Just because he won't take a $300 offer doesn't mean he's unreasonable. For all we know that's what he has in it and he's trying to make a few bucks. On the other hand, I think he should at least give you an idea of where he is, in response to your offer. Joe
I share your frustration with the lack of response from the seller. Someone a little North of me has posted a craigslist ad for the same gulf sign 3 times in the last year (last summer and twice in the last month). I have responded each time (by email, the only option) that I am interested in purchasing the sign for the asking price, which I think is fair.
Never a response - just crickets.
Not sure if the seller is serious about selling, isn't getting my email or is just screwing around. At this stage, even if he were to reply, I'm not sure I would want to pursue it as I don't want to get caught up in a wild goose chase. Joe
