This is one of two wooden 4 bulb T12:fixtures I picked up yesterday at a local Habitat Restore. One was $6 and the other was $12. Both are identical. Hey have real wood and are brand new.

Very nice! I've always loves white drop dish fluorescent lights. I have a 1x4 troffer that has a white drop dish in it. Only thing is they block almost as much light as they let through.

Nice find, my old highschool had drop dish covers in the surface mount troffers in the hallways before demolition. Some other schools in the area still have them in some areas but they have LED T8 tubes in them.

Why were these priced differently when its the same product?

LOL that's when I peel the "12" off the other and say "This one says six bucks and they're the same light". Kinda dumb they price the same light differently.

It was because the price tags were different colors. They were both $12, but red price tags were 50% off. They other one had a blue price tag which had no discount.

Weird, youd think both should have been the right colour. My restore uses colours according to type of product. Eg. Lighting is Orange.

Also my restore seems to know that price tag game, they have a note saying they'll prosecute for tag tampering. I just put on my best barter game + full respect / politeness lol usually works

Colors? I've never been to a ReStore like that. The one in Rhode Island and the one in Attelboro, MA just have white price tags. There are no further discounts or anything like that. The Rhode Island ReStore has a sign saying all prices are final and not subject to negotiation. The price on the item is what you pay unless you strike a deal with the cashier (like "they're marked $2 a lamp, but can I get a deal on the whole case?"). The Plainfield, CT ReStore was really cool with deals. There were no price tags anywhere in the store, so I had to ask a clerk what the prices were. I was able to get killer deals on what I got though because I bought in bulk. ReStores love when you clear a shelf for them since they can put more stuff out, so I've found they're likely to make a deal with you.

@ Lightingguy: I don't put a different tag on an item, though I'll admit I have peeled tags off on "overpriced" items. (example, they normally sell something like a strip light or wrap light for $5 or $10 but I've seen them priced at $20 or $25 for no reason.) However, I've never suggested any price to them. I let them give me a price. Every time I've done it the price they give me at the register is less than what the sticker was. IMO it's their responsibility to know how much an item is. Who's to say they didn't simply forget to put a price tag on the item? I've seen plenty of items that don't have price tags. The lady at the Attelboro ReStore flat-out told me that there's no real rhyme or reason to their pricing. They just slap a number on there and hope it sells. Certain items they get a lot like light bulbs have a set price (generally $1/bulb or $2/bulb if LED). Other than that it's just up to whoever is putting the items out on the sales floor.

My restore prices in general you pay what it is but also like you said, they tend to give discounts if you buy in bulk or can talk your way down a little at the cash. It all depends on whos working the cash. Yeah they have the colour thing, my restore sells alot of electronics and furniture so they have different price tag colours depending on the item. This way when they have to much of something, like couches or dining room displays, they put a sign up saying anything with pink or green tags is 50% off.

The pricing is also done by any of the workers that gets the chance so the price can vary, bulbs are supposed to be $1 like any normal bulb and tubes. But some workers put $3. Since I buy lamps in bulk if possible, they let me get a deal still or I may not buy. An older gentlemen that works there has this belief that the fluorescent tubes have gases in them but the smaller ones don't, so they haven't been taking them in as often. I told them I come here mostly looking for tubes and I'll take em when I see them. If anything they should stop taking in older tube tvs, theres a whole wall with CRT tv sets piling up and no one buying.
