Can you believe that someone is trying to make money off The Tragically Hip “Commemorative Stone” pewter ornaments?
Sadly, we can too.
The limited edition pewter ornaments went on sale Monday and sold out before the day was over. There were even line ups to buy them.
So, just like with concert tickets or sports tickets that sell out or become a hot commodity, someone decided to sell them at a premium online.
Check out this AD on Kijiji – a Tragically Hip “Commemorative Stone” pewter ornament for $150? I don’t think so.
Here’s why this isn’t a good deal.
The ornaments sell for $10 (plus $25 in receipts from downtown businesses).
AND there will be more.
Yes, they sold out on Monday… BUT the downtown BIA says they expect to get another shipment in early next week.
So, rather than spending an extra $140, we suggest just waiting and seeing if you can get one from either the KRC, Visitor Information Centre or Grand Theatre box office next week.
