Something for people to at least consider is to offer items as, first
reasonable offer. The catch here is how I would define a reasonable offer;
either a price I personally set (whether I choose to reveal it or not), or
a price that no other bid exceeds by say 50%.

The idea here is to arrive at a "fair" price, with a process that isn't too
slanted in favor of the buyer or seller.
