Anyone know where I can pick up a ceramic or iron kettle (for boiling water) in town that doesn't cost a bundle?

I'm curious what "a bundle" starts at :). There's a store by my house with a couple different options. Photo share to follow.

It seems like this is a concept that keeps getting rediscovered frequently: charging too little can make you/your product look bad.

Definitely. If you're buying something in the $x000 range, then the $x999.99 thing just looks gimmicky. It does apply to cheaper stuff, though; a friend that makes computer software (for primarily professional use) had a professional advisor tell him to never sell software for under $40 because companies (especially) figure that there must be a reason that it's so cheap. Apparently some even have policies not to buy something that's too cheap.

Most people don't know this, but Amazon also changes prices on things frequently for the same reason. A set of dinnerware I wanted increased in price by $50 when I put it in my cart and then shopped around for 10 mins for something else. I went looking around for a reason, and it turns out that they bounce the prices between cheap and expensive so that they can get both the bargain hunters and those that equate price with quality. (So if there's something on Amazon that you want and it seems a little expensive, just bookmark it and check back periodically!)
