Top 3 Things to Consider When Purchasing a Starwars Trashcan from a Starwars Convention

Jul 21, 2008
Whether you are looking for a Starwars trashcan or any other Starwars collectors item, a Starwars convention is a great place to find many things you may not be able to find elsewhere. Starwars conventions are generally large affairs, with people coming from around the world to share their love for all things Starwars. While you will not only find a large number of people discussing various aspects of the Starwars saga, you will also find many movie and character related items up for sale. This is a great place to find a large selection of Starwars products, but before you purchase anything, there are a few things that you should consider.

Is the Item Real?

While it is rare that it will happen at such a convention, there are often people at these conventions that will sell knock-off products that may look like authentic Starwars products, but in fact are not. Before you purchase your Starwars trashcan, make sure that the product you are purchasing is authentic and not just something that was made in someones basement. It is usually very easy to tell whether an item is a knock off or not and if you are in doubt, don't make the purchase.

Is the Price Reasonable?

With so many people looking to buy products at these conventions, sellers often will raise the price of an item and price it at more than it's actual value. While you can't be expected to know the actual value on all Starwars memorabilia (though some people do!) you can generally tell when something is priced too high. If the Starwars trashcan was part of a collectors personal collection, the price may reflect some sort of sentimental value that the seller has for the item. While it is understandable that a person may feel the item is very valuable emotionally, you should not have to pay for their feelings.

Is There a Guarantee on the Product?

Are items bought as is? If the product breaks soon after you purchase it, or you realize it is damaged, will the seller refund your money or exchange the item for something of equal value. Sadly, events like a convention are a great place for sellers to sell damaged items to unsuspecting victims. By the time you realize the item is damaged, they are long gone and there is no chance of getting your money refunded. If you are purchasing a collectors item such as a Starwars trashcan, make sure that you have contact information for the seller so that if the item is damaged you can contact them and try to get your money back or get your product exchanged.
