Yesterday I stopped by a LDS and purchased some weights. I bought four 3lb and two 4lb weights (20lbs), all uncoated thread-through sea pearls. The total price with tax was $80, which comes out to paying $4 per pound. Going into the shop I knew I could get these items at a lower price on-line, but I wanted to give some support to the local LDS. According to the shop attendant, the prices of lead have sky-rocketed recently. Have you seen the same increase in the prices of weights and do you think $4/lb is higher than it should be? As always, thanks for sharing your opinions.
