Report Thoughts? in The Auction Scroll Posted May 21 On 5/19/2021 at 8:18 AM, GeorgeH said: Probably. Instruments in Goodwill auctions tend to go for very high prices, presumably because there is a way to write-off some of the cost as a charitable contribution (price paid - appraised value = charitable donation). Also the whole idea of "getting a steal" because it's Goodwill, and Goodwill representing all of their items as donated to a charitable organization. I know for a fact that SGW has listed items that were purchased on eBay for much less than they are sold for on the SGW site. Pretty sketchy considering the buyers are told the items were "free" and they are doing a good deed by buying them to support the cause. This might lead some people to pay more than they would otherwise.
