What has happened to the prices at the Scrap-store? I was in on Friday, and they were sky high! I couldn't believe how much some things cost. The charity shops in town tried that once, and people just stopped buying. I always thought that their stuff was priced to help poor folk - not any more! The atmosphere in the store was terrible, and I was most surprised to see the woman who has been behind the counter for years and done the pricing is no longer allowed to do it...allegedly! I shall be using Shet-link classifieds from now on.

I guess what you think of the prices depends on what you are buying. I was in there the other day and the itmes I looked at didn't seem to be any dearer.

Well Sukibind, perhaps you shouldnt have bothered to go back in if you're so scunnered with the prices.
Prices seem ok to me.

Perhaps some folk expect to be given stuff for nothing?
Er, that would be the Scrap Store then?

Perception of expensive is directly linked to how much money you are able to afford, more importantly, what you may have to go without to obtain such items. To some, things that many see as affordable, are not.

Expensive is also directly linked to one's perception of VFM.

It always amuses me that folk rut and bring bairns into da world and they expect a free ride. If you canna afford bairns, stop hivvin dem.
Contraception is available and even the simple minded can work it oot?
They can always be adopted by someone who has the means to bring them up properly.
