Before we start, this is a rant, therefore it will be longer then most posts. I am NOT having a sale right now, so please don't ask me anything like that.
"For Sale; Cheap DKNY, Hotbuys, LE & More!!!"
The members of Stardoll hear the above on a daily basis. Whether someone writes it in your guestbook, or you see it on a broadcast. You'll likely think 'oh great, a sale, and cheap DKNY, Hotbuys & LE!', they click on that persons username, and go to their starbazaar. As the page loads, they think of how good it would be to have something valueable, and not have to pay a truckload of stardollars for it. But then the page loads, and they see for themselves that it's just not going to ever happen. Because the person they have visited is a normal member of Stardoll, who like most members, really does not grasp what cheap means.
CHEAP MEANS CHEAP.
One of the things most people rip off are Hotbuys.
Hotbuys have nothing special about them, except for the tiny little "hotbuy" written on the label.
They are average clothes, which should be sold for average prices.
Here is two pictures I took before.
The first is from someone's starbazaar. The second is from the actual starbazaar.
Now, any person would choose the first one, as it's cheaper, and you can keep your stardollars for yourself to buy other things (hopefully for a decent price).
What do you think the value of this dress is?
The value is what the original price was. The value will always be what the original price was. Because when this dress was released, that was the value then, and nothing can change it, because nothing has changed the dress. Even if it became a rare, the value wouldn't change. Because by being a "rare" or a "valuable", is only something of which people choose to think.
Do you know the 'scuba' dress originally from DKNY? The one that everyone on stardoll really wishes that they had?
Well, why is that valuable? Was it valuable to begin with?
The answer is no.
Oh, and also, there is another replica of the scuba dress. If this was made on Stardoll, what do you think would be more valuable? The pink or the Purple one?
