Where are these people when you have stuff to sell at $25 and they are willing
to pay $25000 for the same thing? No instead you get the ones that tell you what
a junkpile they are and try to knock you down to $5.....I can see the thrift
stores having prices like this since everything they have is donated and they
neither test anything, know what it even is, nor want it around very
long. --------------------------------------------------------------------
