If it’s a dud let it go.
Everyone makes a bad buy from time to time. Even career retail buyers make mistakes. Learn, get what you can, and move on.
One of my worst buys was $5,000 in Macy’s customer return, closeout, and damaged jewelry. It was a couple of thousand pieces, the per-unit cost was around $2.50. It seemed like a no brainer. Except that it wasn’t.
