Heyyyyyyyy! Speaking of horses...remember that time at City Museum (last weekend) when I got called the "n" word and was told "eff you and the horse you rode in on!" by some random stranger who thought I hit him in the face with a ball in the ball pit?! ( [MENTION=6351]Allen H[/MENTION] + everyone there)
...but I KINDA agree with both parties. NOT that anyone asked for two cents, but because this is a public forum...
SHOULD A DONATED GIFT BE SOLD FOR HIGH DOLLAR?? mehhhhhhh. I think of it this way; if it were a CFX mask that I didn't need, the VALUE is still there. I wouldn't just sell it for $100 to recoup my party expenses...it's WORTH $xxx and that's what's fair for the product. I may not sell it for the EXACT amount, but much like this person, half value or so. BUTTTT because the items were donated, I don't feel it's TACKY to resell...especially cause I don't think it was done with ill-intent. If you were a party goer grabbing lots of prizes and reselling, then YES, extremely tacky...I would hope vendors wouldn't be offended (thanks Damon) because it's not like they're donating 50 products that are then being resold. If anything, the product is still being utilized. If ya don't need it you simply don't need it, so waste it??! Who knows...much like coupons, vendors should view it as "hey, maybe this person would have never purchased from me, but if they like my product they may later return." IDK! Again, opinion.
