    My method is to email a polite offer of what I think is fair. If they say yes, then great. If not, then that's fine too. I've learned to resist the urge to point out to people that their pricing...

    The Space Riders are so damn cute! I once saw one tucked away in a shop and made grabby hands at it, but alas, it was set aside for an employee who had dibs.
