So they take a $41 bar stool, screen print a cheap design on it, and sell it for $80.  P.T. Barnum was right man.

$41 might be close to right. I've had a couple of these, https://www.harborfreight.com/flame-design-bar-counter-swivel-stool-91200.html?, and I didn't love them. The quality was suspect, so if they bump up the quality a bit, I could see $40ish being fair. Even with licensing costs, $80's a stretch.

I'm sure they are selling high, and then will have sales.

here's a video showing assembly of the stool (can be adjusted to be taller or shorter),
and some other accessories:
