When you are selling something, it is not an auction, unless it is stated it is and understood by all parties. Anyone who says "shoot me a price" is trying to create a sort of pseudo auction between you and him/her. It's a sleezy tactic. When you find yourself in this situation and you know what a fair price would be, just lower it by half and see what they say. Usually they will then voice a fair price very close to what you feel is a fair price.

Could be different if it were something hard to find/rare, but I'm a shop-around kind of buyer and put a lot of thought into what I want. If there's no price listed, I find a place that has a price listed and go with that. It's like doing crossword puzzles: It's sometimes easier to get the right answers if you put ANYTHING in some squares, so you can see what's not right first.
