I found this just a minute ago and thought it'd be something entertaining to share.

http://www.ebay.com/itm/261173183440?redirect=mobile

Apparently, the seller wants $60 for this STL DIY 12 hole alto C.
They seem proud that they're able to offer it for $10 more for it, even though its 'open box' and obviously scuffed to a high degree.
STL charge $49.99 for the same ocarina, presumably in the box and without blemishes.

They could possibly get away with such a raise in price upon the unsuspecting or uninformed buyer if it weren't for not only the obvious price/quality comparison but they even add who the ocarina is from toward the bottom, so that the curious buyer wanting to know more about the product, goes to the website it comes from to find it actually costs less.
That's a pretty good ad xD

Right?? Absolutely insane hahah. I certainly hope no one is fooled into buying such things, but if they don't do their research first they'll only have themselves to blame for being price-gouged
