Lady comes into the shop.

"I've just finished decorating my living room, and I have a shelf which needs some good looking leather books. Doesn't matter what they are, no-one is going to read them. Those would do."

"Those are £1,250 madam, it is a first eiditon complete works of Thackeray in tree calf and Baynton binding"

"That's a ridiculous amount, i am happy to pay a pound or two a book".

"Well we have no leather in that range madam. We have this Faux leather classics series at £3 each, would they be suitable".

"Oh I couldn't possibly have fake leather in my home. I'll have to get some ornaments instead"

And she swept out.
