It was $.50 for the kitten. Page 25 of LTotP. Everyone is shocked about how high the price was.

In Farmer Boy Almanzo buys a baby pig for $.50.

I think the 'getting off half an hour early' bit was from These Happy Golden Days. In LTotP, Laura makes '$.25 a day plus dinner', which is $1.25 a week.

Dunno about the tv series, but in The Long Winter it's clear that there's at least two general stores in town, so Mrs. Oleson doesn't get to be as horrible as she was apparently made out to be in the show. There's an argument between a bunch of townsfolk and one of the store owners about what consitutes fair business.

Sorry to be a LH nerd.
