They really don't go for $700, your highest realistic sales price will be closer to $500 at the very tippy tip top on the best day of your life.

Sandana pants, those go for $400 and sit on the market for weeks. Its all about the right buyer. They're a collectors item.

Pro-Tip: Hang onto them, Sandana market right now is in a weird position. They've screwed over tons of loyal customers and the market will either bottom out or sky rocket.

I remember back in November I was talking to a younger person and he told me my Sandana Head Wear with the neck protection could be worth as much as $500, I told him B.S.! I went home that night and saw one sold on ebay for like $275 and I was astonished. That's when I decided to make a couple, I have about $6 dollars in material and about 1.5 hours making 1 up for the simple reason of saving my "original" and maybe someday selling it for a small fortune. Considering I probably only paid like 20 something dollars way back when, don't know for sure because I don't keep my receipts that long.

The reason Sandanas are so expensive is because people supported the brand, the brand turned on its customers. There-fore the market will drop for awhile, the guys that were buying those super expensive Sandanas? Theyre the ones that had their money stolen.

The name is very tarnished right now, those people aren't buying Sandana products. There will always be kids that don't know any better, but the market dropped, limited Sandanas max at $300 right now, the employees are even going public with the issues. Its a bad time for Sandana/

but yet, people will buy old brass or wood that you couldn't give away 20 years years ago because the world was going to constant air and semi?

trends are trends because one person wants it, and another has to have it. if you can predict what and when an item will be cool, then you'd be rich.

i have a sandana that i couldn't give away, flying skulls with the original tag. when they became cool, i know i was ahead of the curve. i could sell it, but it doesn't matter to me.sometimes i like the fact that i have a $200 head wrap and a $75+ strap.

so just shake your head and walk away. no one invites you into the room, you walk through the doors yourself.

What did they end up doing? I remember seeing some chatter but never really focused on it.
