    I think this is wrong because we dont see or know who is buying and their circumstances financially. Out of work, in debt and possibly even homeless? I personally couldnt spend from profit of something like this after finding out any of my buyers were in one of those situations. I know its not exactly the same situation but say you had a friend who you found out went unemployed recently could you sell to them at marked up prices like this? I believe its wrong to take advantage of people at times of hardship. These are the times now

    If the people you speak of are so skint, then surely they'd be more careful than to pay 10x over the odds for a pound shop item? I have lived through such times myself in the past, and I certainly would not have been able to do this.
