    Hobby Lobby was having a sale on plastic-model kits 25%-off.
    I finally decided that a 1/48 scale Tamiya Supermarine Spitfire Vb Tropical would look good in my collection.
    When I looked it over closely, there was no price on it. I check a Tamiya Fw190 kit, and it was about $33 USA. When I got to check-out they were not able to scan a bar-code.
    Yeah, we're talking "price-check". I'm holding-up the line. A gal--stocker--is checking the price. I tell the clerk the approx.price-range. (I'm figuring $28-$33.
    The phone rings again, and the cashier says OK and begins to ring it up. I ask what they determined the price to be. She says "Ten bucks." Then she gave me 25% off that price. I got the Spit Vc for $7.50.

    Definately a good deal. You ought to have bought half a dozen, and sold them on eBay :)
