Vote with your money. It has a tendency to solve trends in price gouging or cure artificial inflation. That said, many sellers know people purchase items based on emotion, especially luxury items, so if you "gotta have it" then you will pay whatever it takes to get it. I do think that C 19 has caused an anomaly with music/hobby/luxury items, most of which will eventually return to the market place at sane prices. Humans get bored and tired of stuff and unload it and then get some more different stuff which makes the world go around, or something like that.
