Parts Inquiry

With reference to recent questions & comments on this forum regarding pricing of "privately owned" boat parts.
Today, I spent 8hrs. at a good-sized marina 'swap-meet'. selling my 'extra' stock of boat gear, rigging, hardware & equipment. I'm happy to say I did sell quite a lot. These items were mostly new, individually packaged, & priced very fairly (imho).

My personal rules for pricing being:
NEW PARTS, Must be new, as in "never used or installed"' preferably in the original pkg. These will be priced at 75% of retail excluding taxes paid on the original retail purchase (which, in BC happens to be 7% PST, plus 5% GST) the latter being calculated after the PST has been added so yes, we do pay a tax on a tax, here in BC. for instance: Item A was originally purchased for $142.49 plus $9.97 PST = subtotal of $152.46 plus $7.12 GST = a total Retail price of $159.58 therefore, the total would be 'rounded' to $140.00 (mostly) because it makes for easier mental calculations & (secondly), I'll be dealing almost entirely in 5's & 10's ... multiplied by 75% it becomes $105.00 & essentially, my initial asking price.

I consider this to be my fair ask-price for such new parts because by now, all I'm doing, is 'giving away money' but to be 'fair', I'm still open to offers, providing they are within reason &, particularly if purchaser is buying multiple items in which case, I may consider dropping another 5%.
USED PARTS must be very good condition, packaged in Zip-lok sandwich baggies to help keep parts clean from handling, all priced at 50% of retail ex taxes and negotiable similarly if multiple parts are purchased.
