I went to have my watch battery changed and while I was waiting, I looked at a nice over the head beaded jewelry set. Earrings and necklace - both lovely and well made.
Out of curiosity, I asked the price and was told it was $300.00 plus tax. He said it was on sale right now at half price and he figured it out that with the tax it would come to $198.00.
It was a very nice set but it wasn't even Swarovski crystals!
