    It's another sign that the economy is being flushed right down the toilet.

    You are citing a product for which price was determined for years by wait times and availability. The wait time for Zendrives dropped like a rock recently so the prices fell accordingly. This looks more like a product coming and going like many others before it. The current hot brands are companies like Skreddy. A Pink Flesh is closing on $500 on eBay currently and that hardly sounds like market prices falling to me.

    Now that I think about it, I've noticed this too.

    Depends what you are selling. There is still plenty of money out there to go around for rare stuff.

    I think you are right for the most part. I've had some trouble selling some boutique stuff for the price I think they are worth...but it's definitely a buyer's market recently and people aren't paying an amount much higher than the average cost. But yes, it's also true that it depends on the item. Like many threads here have stated, a Klon sold on the Bay for almost a grand. But of course, these rare items have a particular meaning behind them and therefore are a unique outlier to the general norm of boutique pedals.
