Re: WHY do mamas sell items for double or more than they paid?

If someone said the "needed" an item and couldn't afford it at the price I asked or something, then yes I'd be upset b/c they would have lied. But these discussions come up at least monthly, about someone selling for mor then they bought and the circumstance you are referring to is not usually the case. If it was the circumstance you were referring to then it would be annoying, because someone would have lied in order to get something below market value only to sell it for above market value, kwim?
