    Re: Old Weller Antique shortage??

    I'm just trying to illustrate why no one has any right to be offended by the prices a business charges. You have the right to not do business with them, but not to tell them how to run their business. Mostly that's for your own good. Why work up a sweat about something that is none of your business?

    I reserve the right to be offended by anything I find offensive.

    I just noticed that total Wine (Columbia, SC) has 1.75 bottles of WSR in but the price has jumped from 32.99 to 46.99. They said it reflects the MSRP increase. Hmmmm.

    It's always somebody else's fault isn't it. Just once I'd like to hear a made up a story so ridiculous it's believable.

    Re: Old Weller Antique shortage??

    I saw OWA on the shelf for the first time since last fall. The price had increased to $27.99 which I thought was really high. The store usually has fair prices so I believe the price increase is more of a pass on of a general price increase. To be honest, I wouldn't pay $27.99 for the current iteration of OWA which I find to be average at best. However, because it is an element of the SB Blend and they only had three bottles, I bought one. If I didn't have some WL12 in the bunker, I wouldn't be a buyer. Once I deplete my current bunker of WL12 and can no longer buy it because it is allocated, I won't buy any more OWA.

    If I see everyone else follow suit, then I believe it. I have seen no shortage of WSR at all. Unlike OWA or W12, I could always buy as much WSR as I wanted (that is If I wanted to).

    Every time I see a Weller shaped bottle (always on the bottom shelf), I get a little excited until I see it is WSR.
