This is your answer, please read entirely.
The Black Giorgio Armani velvet cape Excellent condition has an estimated value on the current market for an average of 350.00-400.00 GBP Keep in mind that not all estimated values are obtained, your geographic area plays a big role in what prices can be obtained. If you plan on selling this I would list this for sell on the internet where it will have the largest shopping market. There are some great sites you can sell from.
Etsy is a great site. Your town might even have a Facebook page dedicated to selling items (like an online garage sale). .
Ebay is a great option. It does reach a lot of people, but items tend to sell a little lower on there If you do decide to try Ebay,I recommend setting reserves.

It was a pleasure working for you. I would be happy to help you with any items in the future.
