If you buy them for 2.50 and resell for 6, you would make out pretty good.

But I assume they bought a huge lot on ebay like pp said
Yep, that's almost standard retail profit. It would be totally worth it, if they are easy to sell. A coop price is $3.30 each with inserts and selling for $6 is almost 100% profit, so that is a standard retail profit. Most retailers buy whatever it is they sell for half the price the sell it for to make 100% profit. (I used to work in wholesale fabric and notions and it hurts me to buy retail )
