    28% increase seems like a lot of inflation, but it really isn't. Think of how much it cost that China shop to make that piece. Probably cost them pennies. So the wholesale purchaser is really making the massive markk up. Then the shop keep on top of that. Yeah sure it traveled all the way from China, but so does 85% of everything else. Wanna talk about inflation I used to work at walmart, and when we used a price gun that the employees had, it showed the increase of cost in %. You wouldn't believe how much they mark stuff up lol Toys were the worst. Goddamn action figure had a 1500% mark up... Just stupid. But yeah back on point 28% mark up for shipping is a little ridiculous, but not over the top.

  2. That's got to win an ugliest bong award.  But if it hits good its cool.
     
    Still ugly!
     
  3. Walmart is able to that because economies of scale. 1500% markup is pretty insane though!

    All I saying is that for the same price, you could easily purchase a higher quality product.

  4. I definitely agree. Could get a solid american made boro piece for $50 for sure. Problem is everyone doesn't have access to the product, and sometimes you just don't want to wait. I personally wouldn't buy that bong, but to each their own. Yeah you wouldn't believe the mark up on some of the stuff you buy in a retail setting.
