I don't know Chris because I've never bought a 'cheap' paperweight. I've bought weights because I like them, and I've never been the only bidder unless I've bought a buy it now. So I can't comment.
I have on the other hand bought other glass that's worth more than I paid for it.
Mainly because I have lots of books, and do lots of research and I recognised what it was but few others did.
In my opinion there is a difference between the two things.
I paid a LOT of money for my books and I read them and know the pieces in them. I also do a lot of research. So the money I spent means I have knowledge that I can use to buy something. Even having done that though, I can't remember the last time I bought a truly good piece of glass and was the only bidder.
That is not the same as selling something using words that can be misconstrued.
