Quoting QFA380 (Reply 2): Well he doesn't deserve to have it if he is that ignorant.
I don't think it's fair to call the shop owner ignorant. After all, it's a thrift store - he's just trying to sell as much cheap shit as he can. He doesn't expect to have any item that is worth a fart, and it's not worth the money to have any item appraised and authenticized. Yeah, it's a bad break that the shop did sell a genuine item for waaayyyy under value, but sometimes that happens. Don't fault the shop owner though.
