So toilet paper would cost more than caviar?

No, it would just have a higher margin for the retailer. Low price-in + 6 cheap units of margin still equals a low price-out, whereas astronomical price-in + 1 cheap unit of margin still equals an astronomical price-out.

Yeah, still feels weird, but it wouldn't be as absurd as your example.
