It seems that industry is concerned about profiteering. Some individuals are making excessive profits and a quick buck at the expense of poor retailers.
So what measures are retailers taking to stop these profiteering secondhand sales? To keep control when Moss's collection hits Topshop on Tuesday, the store will be issuing wristbands and limiting purchases to five items per person, with no duplicate items allowed. At the Original Fake store, staff now check IDs and enforce an age limit of over 15, to combat enterprising parents who use their offspring to purchase more than one figure. Pictures On Walls has added a disclaimer to its website suggesting that anyone found to be selling new prints on eBay will be struck off its list and never allowed to buy from it again.
I was completely unaware of the strong feeling against the public making a profit by buying and selling stuff. It is completely outrageous that these people are making hundreds or thousands of pounds whilst our retailers have to settle for mere billions.
