I have been caught doing the reverse. Going to the second-hand bookstore, or
record store, buying the "bargain," and seeing it soon after at half the
price at a regular store! Oh, the pain!

And one of the worst "sins" of the second-hand bookshop is when they sell
you an old tattered copy for 5 times the original price [fair dimkum!] and
more than the price in your regular outlet, which, you discover, has heaps
of brand new copies, sometimes in a better, later edition!

How do you say caveat emptor in Greek?
