Default The Sims 3 DLC can be expensive...

It's no secret that DLC for The Sims 3 is expensive, but as I was watching a new video from the Lazy Gamer, I almost spit out my food:

Yes, $19 for that "Renaissance Faire"
Intel Core i7-3960X, GIGABYTE G1.Assassin 2, Kingston 16GB DDR3-2133, NVIDIA GeForce GTX 770 2GB
Kingston HyperX 3K 240GB SSD (OS, Apps), WD VR 1TB (Games), Corsair 1000HX, Corsair H70 Cooler
Corsair 800D, Dell 2408WFP 24", ASUS Xonar Essence STX, Gentoo (KDE 4.11. 3.12 Kernel)
