And your point is what exactly? Have you ever bought something at a Hamfest
and then had someone offer you more for it later and sell it to them?
That's happened to me a couple of times, once it gave me a net profit even
though I had paid $75 for a set of MicroVAX III boards!

The seller probably should have set a higher 'buy it now' price. But the
other guy just took advantage of that and might make a quick buck. Then
again, he might be like one of the Beanie baby folks and find out that now
he can't break even on it.
