I love browsing the "As Is" section of stores. Most flaws are either not noticeable or easily fixable.
At Bed Bath & Beyond, I found these two matching stools:
Both were in the "As Is" section.
One was marked $12.98 because the pieces didn't align up properly, as in "Manufacturer's Defect," but in fact it was just the store personnel's fault. They put it together wrong. I fixed it.
The matching stool was marked $2.98 (Not a typo!) because it was missing the wooden plugs to go over the screws.
That's a 98 cent fix from Menards.
They were originally $39.99
So...instead of paying $60 for the pair, I paid $17.
Moral of the Story:
Someone else's opinion of "broken" (whether it be objects or people) may be "perfect" in your opinion.
