Why is it that every year about this time folks break out thier "Lost Treasures!", "Kept in a closet for 20 years!", "Squeaky Clean!", "Ultra Rare!!" Apple II and Mac items?
They could have placed these things up for auction any time during the year and probably sold them with no problems for a reasonable amount, but they always wait until Christmas when they think that they can jack up the price (not only of the item, but for shipping too) and get away with it.
One of my favorites is "Still Wrapped in the Original Plastic" software packages. Yes; some of these programs are just about (yeah, just about) worth the five to ten times markup that they cost when they first came out, but you know as soon as you buy it and it arrives in the mail that you'll rip it open to use or play and then it will be worth less than the original price. Buy used.....it saves time and money.
I know, Iknow. I'm being cynical again. Being a collector AND a user of Apple II's and Mac's makes me wonder ; again...
"WHAT ARE THESE PEOPLE THINKING?!?!?"
Anyone else have any Yuletide sentiments on this subject?
Happy Holidays Everyone!
