Varying prices for the same stuff made in China

Posted on Tue, Aug 7, 2012 at 12:56 PM

I go into a bookstore to look for an e-reader stylus and they want $20 for a shitty piece of crap made in China so I go to the nearby dollar store and, voila, there's a stylus for two fucking bucks. Then when going to an art shop, these tiny drawing books were $10 and up...found a great little sketch book for $2... both made in China. With outrageous markups like this, is it any wonder stores are closing? —Dollar Stores Fucking Rule
