If the team had been really smart they would have stamped "Limited Edition" or something minor yet different on the outfits. Then sold them to wholesalers for $10. Would have made a killing. $5 was too low and they could have always had a sale in the last hour. If they'd sold them for $10 for the first few hours they could have sold the rest for $3 and still come out ahead in the end (assuming they sold enough for $10). Always start high and work down.
Hadn't seen the show in a few weeks and I have to admit I laughed during the whole episode. Unfortunately, it was a painful pity type of laugh. What a poorly designed show.
