A Random Wednesday Conversation Starter

We've been looking at patio furniture lately and have been shocked at the price tags involved! Seriously, we don't really want to pay what we'd pay for a couple of pieces of indoor furniture for some stuff we'd only be using six months out of the year, at best. And yet, it seems that there is no "mid-range" for patio furniture -- it's either low-end cheap plastic crap for under $200, and then nice stuff starting at $750. Weird.

Anyway, what's something that gave you some serious sticker shock?

Juicers. $260 for a juicer? A JUICER?

That is weird. The stores around here have a lot of decent mid-range furniture for a lot less than $750.

Just about everything gives me sticker shock. I expect everything to cost what it did 30 years ago.

My, almost everything. But let's talk about home improvement, expanding the bathroom about a foot. YIKES.

I just got sticker shock looking up the price on the patio set we bought ten years ago on sale for about $200.00 from Sears (http://www.sears.com/grand-resort-anna-maria-7pc-dining-set-bundle/p-071CO55250312B?prdNo=3&blockNo=253&blockType=G253). We still have it, and while the paint has chipped a bit on the table it's still like new -- but now it's over $700.00!
