Since Mary Portas investigated charity shops they've realised that people will pay good prices for quality. Oxfam just had that policy for longer. My daughter does a couple of days a week as a volunteer in an animal charity shop. The other day she opened a bag which had an original Vivienne Westwood dress and an unopened Chanel No 5 perfume set! Common sense dictates that they can ask good money for those.
(Not that the above is really relevant to the teddy bear sale, Mad! I agree with you that people should do their research before buying for investment, or, even better, buying from you!)
