Yea, so I'm not ultra-rich person, and I kinda see how some ultra-rich people may be into buying stuff just for the sake of it being expensive, but this is kinda nuts. I don't mean to speak negatively of this business or anything, but there was "sale" of this furniture featured on, and I saw this ordinary solid-wood table with a list price of $18,950, a sale price of $13,000, and a shipping price of $1500. Okay, maybe I don't understand how this stuff may be regarded as really special art and I may just be ignorant in thinking that $13,000 is just a tad overprice for a table, but $1500 for shipping? Is this table from the moon or something? There were other items like little stools for $3000 that normally cost $4300 and stuff... man I just don't get it.

Some Hints:

  • The best reviews give a clear sense of why you liked or disliked a restaurant, bar, or store. And that means details. Mention specifics dishes, type of crowd, pros and cons...
  • If it's helpful to compare one place to another, go for it.
  • Come up with clever, funny, pithy subject lines, and write in the first person.
  • Don't forget to read the user rating guidelines and rules.
