Absolutely, the across the board increases among other factors have had a knock on effect for things like this.In his defence the prices of most things has gone insane since Covid, i think the current prices of a lot of things are far above what they should be if they just followed inflation. Prices of hides has gone up, prices of tanning chemicals has gone up, prices of shipping anything anywhere has gone up.
I am sure that if you used the time machine to compare the prices of LW one year pre covid and now you would see that a large chunk has hapened since Covid started.
Have you tried buying any building materials recently? Some things are almost twice the price they where pre covid. (OSB panels went from €8 up to €22 a few months ago, they are back down to €15 or so but it is still twice what it was in 2019).
Musical instruments have gone crazy too, some brands of bass guitars (Sadowsky, Dingwall) have raised the prices of their imported models by 50% since 2019.
