We suggest that you sell items that are more than $200 because of several reasons the most important being 1) selling inexpensive items attracts customers without much income and they will send items back which causes headaches for you. 2) You have to sell a lot of low priced items to make a profit.
Although we always encourage charitable giving, unless you have high priced items it'll be extremely difficult to make a profit.
