Need prices for Maasai blankets

We have had 3 blankets donated to a silent auction. Several years ago we paid $20 U.S. for a blanket. Can anyone assist me with a reasonable price for these items? It is a fundraiser, so I think that less than $20 would not be advantageous. I know someone will send a response. Asante.

Pirates the price varies depending on the quality of the material and also the outlet from where you purchase it .I would give it between $10 to $15.

We pay Kshs 900 (US$10) per blanket at the markets in Westlands. I would say $20 each should be the minimum.

Thanks for the responses. Since these items are for a fund raising dinner, supporting public health research in Eldoret, setting a higher value, maybe $30, will perhaps encourage higher bidding. We'll likely set a minimum bid of $10. I appreciate the responses.

The inappropriate responses were people trying to sell you blankets against the rules on self-promotion and soliciting
