However if I took the same items and sold them at a Renn fair, they would get 2-5 times the price, simply because those people have no idea what shit costs.
really, if I was to totally commit myself, and get about 500 bucks in startup cash, I could probably make a decent enough living selling chainmaille, but then it wouldn't be as fun
