What's This Cost?

This little scraper/weeder was for sale at the local garden center. What do you think it cost?

I think you should advise readers of a nervous disposition to sit down first.

But it's made in Holland!

Whoa. I purchased something similar, possibly identical, for about $20. It is a great little tool for weeding. I found mine online.

Garden centers go back and forth between two things, cheap ass decorated plastic and tools "handforged by ancient dwarves living in subterranean Antarctica." The forged tools might be usable, but geez, the premium.

Lee Valley. I get no money promoting them and I love their products. (You'll see some of this there, too, I admit - but I think their hand crafted stuff actually IS.)

My jaw just about dropped when I saw the prices tags on the small iron pot my dad bought for melting lead, and the iron muffin pan my mom bought for...well, hopefully not using until it's scrubbed THOROUGHLY.

The prices as marked were $45 and $80, respectively. Thankfully, they're good shoppers and know how to haggle with antique dealers.

The fact that the muffin pan was a Wagner-ware made the price a little more understandable, too.
