Along the way from the main station of Taiwan’s airport metro line to Taipei railroad station are several small shops selling souvenirs and various house goods. One of them was having a liquidation sale and everything could be had at 50% of the original price.

How much would you want or willing to pay for one of these stuffed toys? Each one of them was at most 3″ long and slightly bigger than 2″ OD.

$2? $3?
How about $18 a piece before discount? To be precise, it was $545 new Taiwan dollar. $1 USD = $31 NTD or 新臺幣。

No wonder it was going out of business. I won’t buy any of them. 

Of course, they didn’t have me in mind when they opened the store.
