The Value of Specialist or Niche Stuff for Your Interest or Hobby
Lots of people have some kind of interest or hobby involving expensive stuff. People involved in that interest or pursuit understand the value of various items of kit or components etc but sometimes that same stuff seems incredibly expensive to people not involved in that hobby. What are some examples of stuff for your hobby that you think is a bargain but you know that people not involved in that pursuit wont understand.
I'll go first with Road Cycling…my hobby. Before taking up cycling I would have thought anything more expensive that the $200 bikes i saw in KMart was ridiculous. I currently ride a bike that cost around $7K and I've bought expensive upgrades on top of that. I spend ages looking at bike stuff and regularly think I've found a bargain because I saw a cool cycling lycra top for $130 etc. Only last week I bought some new cycling shoes for $200 down from about $400 ….. absolute bargain!!!
Other hobbies I imagine would be similar are photography, drones, horses, collecting stuff etc.
