Resellers are the Worst

Just a small rant today. Yesterday, my mom and I made a 20 mile drive to go to World Market. You see they have the Bonne Maman Preserves Advent Calendar. Do I need this advent calendar? No, I do not. Do I want it so I can have little samples of jam and honey up to Christmas? Yes, I do. I checked online yesterday to make sure it was in stock before I drove down and they had lots of advent calendars but not the Bonne Maman. Is this the fault of the store? Nope. The lady I asked said she had put out a bunch and a man followed her as she was putting them out and bought them all. Last year these advent calendars were being resold for over $100. I don’t want to resell, I just want one for me so I can sample these to see if I want a full size for baking later in the year.

This makes me think of the Rae Dunn people that go to TJMaxx and buy all of the pottery as soon as it is placed to resell online. It also makes me think of the legal scalpers…I mean resellers on Ticketmaster that buy tickets and then jack the prices up. You people are terrible people.

I realize these are very much first world problems and nobody really cares but with the way prices are going anyway no one needs resellers making things even more difficult. What will be resold next? Eggs? Water?

On a happier note, I did order online so I will get my advent calendar in six to ten business days. I just really wanted to buy something in an actual store. Mom and I did have a delicious lunch at Champy’s Chicken and we, of course, bought a few other Christmas goodies from World Market we couldn’t leave without. So, it was not a fruitless shopping trip at all.
