My New Baby

Just look at her, isn't she gorgeous?  I love the feel in my hands and sounds to my ears.

I guess I shouldn't forget my other new baby. Now this one has a story to it, but I'm going to leave that. I'm going to leave it because I have a comment instead about the case. It's lovely. I looked and looked at all the stores, I wanted the one that spoke only to me. But the prices!! My oh my, for a little piece of rubber or plastic the stores were asking $20-35 and up! I couldn't understand why on earth a little tiny simple object could possibly cost that much. In the past year or so I have also started looking at where things are made in hopes that I can purchase something made in Canada or at least in North America. It's actually not easy. Mainly the cases I like were made in China etc. So I went online and figured if I'm going to buy one made in China, why not just look there to buy it? So I ended up buying the one I liked which was at a retailer here for $29.99 for under $2.00 including shipping. Could someone please tell me why there is such a price difference? I understand that everyone in the process of getting it to Canada and into the stores need to make a cut, but really I find that udderly ridiculous. Frankly it makes me a little upset. What will I do about? I don't know. I guess in my mind, why are we having our things made abroad? Cheaper? Can't the same item be made here? If it cost $15 to make it here, I'm sure many middle men, shipping costs, trade/duty etc can be avoided and still charge the $29.99 (or less). Maybe I'm simple minded and there's a reason why I don't work in big business. But there you have it. My opinion stated.

And here she is....
