some people pay a lot, often, knowingly, a large mark-up, for their desired item. some people put their name on wait lists for the opportunity to buy an anticipated item. often a prohibitive cost or a limited production number only enhances the demand for and desirability of an item. i suppose the implication is you're lucky or loaded if you get your hands on the piece.
what if it were even more exclusive?
how would you feel about having to qualify, through some process of evaluation, to make a purchase?
