few days ago, me and shanki drove down to Hobart for fun.
half way, we stopped by a small town for its renowned scallop pies. though, its overpriced and overrated in my humble opinion.
after the luncheon, we went for a little stroll in that particular town.
there was this second hand cum gifts shop right across the street and we entered in our own risk.
oh before i forgot, here is the link to the particular location i mentioned : ROSS
its not the first time for us to visit this place but its the first time for us to enter this shop. and i discovered how outskirts dwellers are out of their mind in listing their products or more precisely: their collections from everywhere, including their own unwanted
very no logic 1: a chiar, victorian style which can be found in 98% of the houses in tasmania, is sold max. $200 elsewhere, everywhere, but was tagged sensitively $995 here.
very no logic 2: lousy card holder, wallet, etc with bad craftsmanship and material topped with a silver printed 'real leather' on the very outer facade of it. normal priced rm2 in pasar malam or china store will be regarded overpriced. here, its $19;95-$29.95, making money ain't that tough heh?
very no logic 3: very old victorian style top. for women. vintage. the thing itself aged 100yrs old if not mistaken. is sold for $700+ the same thing where u can get for as low as $200+ in your local city mission store. or maybe $30 on ebay.
very no logic 4: every single fking thing u can see in the shop, they tagged it. yes! price tag on every thing! in this case i would just exempted those not tagged: electrical switches, the staff and the likes of it. yes! you might think how bout the wall, ceiling and wall of the shop, mind you, on the front facade of the building, i mean the shop, there is a real estate board hanging on the wall: for sale.
how i wish i have pictures along this post!!!!!
