3. Got Goals?
Remember all of those posters that would grace the walls of nearly every office in the 1990s? The message of the framed art was always something about teamwork, success or reaching your goals. Now, you can buy a copy of GOALS Motivational Ocean Lighthouse Picture Black Framed Art Print for just $8,8888,88. The picture is curiously priced, whether by accident or by intention, with lots of “8s” with that number being the universal symbol for infinity. The description says it has a “Solid wood frame. Added is a real piece of glass in front to protect the art.” Even with real glass and wood, do people buy this for the price. The answer is “yes” as two purchasers have reviewed the item and gave it 5 stars. One reviewer said her staff found the lighthouse photo with the message “very motivational” for her staff. Was it listed at the same price when the two reviewers bought the framed poster is the question.

What makes the “out of print’ editions and paperback volumes so valuable is a mystery.
