A very nice charity shop find.
I sometimes think this raises an ethical question. This weight is worth anything from £60-£80 depending on condition and which way the wind is blowing. The Charity shop would not have known its value - and probably priced it at £5 -£10.
In these circumstances - should we pay more? It is one thing finding a bargain at a car boot , auction or ebay - there is no guilt there - but if it is a charity shop? They are raising money for charitable purposes. Does one tell them the true value and/or offer them more money?
Does one pay £5 and leave feeling a little guilty? I have in the past found a nice military badge weight priced at £4 and given them £10 (knowing it is worth £20+)
What do others think? Would the attitude change depending on the charity (whether it is a good local charity or a hugh national charity with a £100k+ a year director, luxury offices and dodgy political activities)
