Please help with ebay auction?

I'm selling a brand new Abercrombie leather jacket that retails for $350 on Abercrombie's website. The auction has been going for three days, and only has 17 hours left before it closes. It has 17 bids and is only at $31. It has 208 views and 38 watchers. I really don't want the jacket to go for under $150, but didn't think to use a reserve price. Since there's still time to cancel, I was wondering if I should cancel and re-list with a reserve. Will people bid at the last minute? What do you think?

Here's the auction:

when you re-list, i would give it a better description... you have no description what so ever. i would never bid on it regardless of price

I would cancel the auction. People do bid at the last minute, but they might not go 150.

When you re-list the coat, you should list it for at least 7 days - I would 10. As a new seller you have to know that 3 days is not enough time to get your item seen because you are not on leading pages.
Also like the previous comment - you need to have more information in your listing - especially measurements and more pictures. Also keep in mind the day and time your auction starts, as that is when they will end
(pacific time - California time = ebay time)
Good luck with your new auction!
