 I want to sell my old 35mm equipment on eBay.  It is a fully manual Vivitar V335, which uses a Pentax K-mount.  I bought two lenses, both Albinar, one wide angle, one telephoto zoom (80mm to 200mm) for it, a manual trigger cable, and a flash unit for it.

Its a good starter for someone to learn the fundamentals, but certainly nothing that is very popular today.

Anyone have a clue what I should ask for the whole kit (including the bag)?

It might be more worth your time to donate it to a school or community arts program or your local Goodwill. When the professional grade, at one time highly valued and popular Nikon F3HP is going for under $200 on eBay that says a lot about the fair market value of 35mm film equipment.

Titanium body F3hp was my favorite 35mm body ever. Mine came from US army, was built like a tank and was probably rolled over by a few.

I lost my signature and all I got was this Nutter t-shirt

I picked up a Canon Rebel K2 for about 100 bucks and a Tamron lens for everyday walkabout purposes for another 50 - now mind you, the camera store I got them from refurbished the lot, so it was a bit on the high side. But I see that rig going for anywhere from 30 (body with kit lens) to 100+ bucks on ebay.


So the right 35mm camera can still go for a couple of bucks at least.
