And thank you for the reminder! I just placed an order for MIL and DM's gifts this year. DO NOT want to go through that again this year - LOL! They will both be receiving the 4 calling birds bowl for Christmas!
The reindeer butter dish is super cute - though no one uses stick butter at the table these days...
Martha, I think of that everytime I get a fabulous deal on something. I got a great deal on leather boots a couple of weeks ago and thought, somebody actually paid $250.00 for these boots. I got them them for around $35.00.
I can't believe they were getting $300.00 for them on ebay, wow. They were nice but not $300.00 nice.
****Look at objects not only for what they are, but for what they could be, vg****
VG -- I can't believe that either. Someone posted that they were $300 on ebay and I went and looked because "asking" and "getting" are two different things. Nope, if you went to the completed auctions, they had SOLD for $300!!
I'm not sure why, either, someone would pay $300 for a NEW made in China $30 item. But they were!
Which is why, I'm thinking that they were brought back this year.
I do think they're cute and would look great on a Christmas table . . .
Well, . . . "here we go again" . . . . the salt and pepper is "backordered" on line (should be here by first of December) and it's $45 to $60 on ebay (most are buy it now -- not sure it's being bought)
I'm wondering if smart entrepreneurs haven't bought them all up hoping to make money on them this year.

That was my post - I was so appalled at the prices and at the same time kicked myself for not buying TWO and doing the same...
The bowls arrived today and are quite nice. Lesson learned last year - if you like it, don't wait!
