How many times have you looked over the stock in a gift shop and been astonished that some very simple articles were priced at as much as two or three times their actual value? That is, if you were to buy these very same articles in a dry goods store, a hardware store, or, perhaps, the "five and ten," you would pay considerably less. You perhaps wondered how anyone had the ability to sell any produce at a price so much beyond its cash value. But your merchant certainly does sell these articles, and there seems to be a steady demand for more from the buying public.
