Good bargains don't follow one another

Diversity at a second hand store

During the Christmas shopping period, a friend had a rude awakening. First of all, she found some sneakers at the second hand market which were of high quality at a good bargain - 1,500 naira or $5. Excited, she thought that was how the second hand market was organized; this was her first time. She then picked a jeans that looked brand new. Without giving it a second thought, she doled out 6,000 naira (about $16) for it only to get home and realize that the jeans was actually worth one-third of what she paid. She had been done in. That was her first time at a second hand market. She learned her lesson.

One has to take her time before dolling out her money.

The traders at the second hand markets are fast talkers. When you think you're having a bargain they show you another product then another. Before you are through, you've bought both the good and the bad.

We all have to learn our lessons the hard way. She will do better next time.

That's what we told her. Look carefully. Don't be in a hurry. When the seller sees he's sold to you, he'll be anxious to sell you something else, probably something others do not like because you appear excited.

you need to know your stuff at second hand stores and not be shy about bargaining.

Here in Nigeria nothing gets bought without bargaining. Even men do it too at the market.
