My last lot of Dexter Mat Cutter blades came from Eckersley's art supplies in Brisbane, Australia. Price out of the discount bin was $1 for a pack of 5 blades. I was overcome by acquisitiveness so I bought 5 packs. But I did not buy all they had.
My latest encounter with price outrage was CR2032 button cells. From the local electronics store $4.31 each, from China via Ebay $0.179 ea. Someone is making a motza and I doubt that the Chinese are losing on the deal.
