Not sure if this is what occurred in your case, but the story is familiar. Many sellers buy in larger groupings and then break the larger groupings down into smaller parts to resell. Over the few month period you mention, the seller could have sold off the other parts of his larger purchase for a greater than expected profit thus allowing his to sell the item of your interest for a lesser price. At the time you offered $80, he may have anticipated needing $90, but with other parts selling for more than expected the item became worth only $60 to him.
