I have a mint 18-55 DX kit lens that has been sitting idle for awhile. (I used it for the first couple of months I had my D80, then upgraded.)

Someone local without a lens to cover that range has expressed interest in buying it. These are currently selling for ~ $120 new (though I'm not sure anyone buys the lens outside of a kit?).

What would be a fair price for it used?

I did the exact same thing; sold mine on ebay for $112 + shipping.
I think you made out very well. I'm not a big fan of buying used equipment from Ebay, but I have sold a few lenses there which people paid almost as much as a new lens cost. I don't really understand why, but they did.

I don't really understand it much either. I bought my D40 kit with 18-55mm lens brand new for 450 a couple months ago. I sold the kit used for 390 a couple days ago.. go figure
