They were not cheap when I was in California. I found mine in FL (new and still in the box) at a thrift store. I got them for $14.99. Many times stores donate them to thrift stores if they need to get rid of the inventory. It's a tax write off to donate them for full retail value after they have clearanced them down as far as they wanted to go.

there are a lot of counterfeit ones around. Educate yourself before you buy
