Exclamation SU Endless Wishes

OMG!! Just poking around on eBay and saw the SU Endless Wishes set for $95 and for $52! Unbelievable- I was not too excited about that set when SU first released it but changed my mind and it was too late- all sold out. Guess Santa won't be coming down the chimney with that one..

For $95, you could get a couple of the Festive Flurry bundles or many of the ready-to-assemble FF snowflake kits! $95 for that set is silly!

Have you thought of getting the digital version, at least that way you can print out and use and not feel that you missed out.

Just checked Ebay. There is a new listing of that set. It's at $20.49 right now.

I ordered this set when it first came out, and not from being brilliantly prepared...it happened to come out the day I ordered....AND for once, I looked at new releases BEFORE I hit submit!!! LOL!! I didn't realize that all the photopolymer stamps were while supplies lasted since SU doesn't make these themselves at the current time. I was shocked how fast this set sold out. Ebay prices are crazy. Who would pay that much for a stamp???!!!! I am hoping with the big response these are getting, SU will start to carry more of them and also maybe, fingers cross, make them a permanent line in the catalog!

I ordered mine, and I got it just fine, but was informed that I was one of the last to get one. It was sold out a couple of hours later.

I got this set about a month ago. I do really like it, but not to the tune of $50.00 or more! Heck, I wouldn't pat $20.00 for it!

It is cute and very versatile.

Just a note for anyone who uses MDS ... 'Endless Wishes' is available as a digital download.

I did not know this either. From a Demo standpoint, do you market them actively? I mean, knowing that when your customers go to make their purchase that it might not be available? I can't imagine "Hey, here is this super cute set, they don't make these stamps themselves so there might not be any more available for you but I just had to show you this cute stuff that you won't be able to do! " haha, just does not make much sense to me.

I would have liked to get this set but I had lots of other things going on and didn't want to make a purchase then. I agree that I hope SU starts making their own clear stamps in the future. I wondered why the set was available for such a short time.
Haven't gotten into the digital stamps, I like the tactile feel of the real thing.

I'm only a hobby demo myself, but there has been a lot of discussion about this on the demo side of the forums. It's a real dilemma.

I'm confused by this. When I first saw the Endless Wishes set, I thought that it's nice but it's similar to other sets out there (by other companies).

Then it sold out.

What am I missing? I'm just confused because it's nothing special, that I can see.

I didn't see anything really special about it, but Friday one sold on Ebay for 74.99.

I think some of it is that, while similar to sets from other companies, it's different for SU, and it was a big hit with SU folks. The photopolymer sets are made in limited quantities so, being really popular, it sold out. Then, having sold out created a buzz and made it a must-have that people started going crazy over - kind of like Beanie Babies once upon a time.

Lead the way!! I would love to see the other sets like this one; I am one of the ones who was too late and would love to find something similar if I could. Thanks in advance!!!

I had no idea that the photopolymer sets were a limited release. Good to know for future reference. I planned to get Endless Wishes when I placed my next order, but obviously waited too long because I missed out. It's a cute set and I like the sentiments, but it's not worth that kind of money to me.

My guess is that it's just kind of a trial. I think SU is trying to see how the sales go before they invest fully in the stuff they need to make them themselves. Being a zero debt company they are pretty careful when it comes to purchases I would imagine. My guess is that if these do well they will in fact make them, I hope anyway! They seem to be popular! There are a few that are sold out! But yeah, it was a bummer. I'm still using it just because I LOVE it but I don't have many customers or do big business either

Maybe they'll offer a new set or 2 in the next main catalog in all 3 types-wood, clear-mount and clear. Then they could compare sales of each type. The clear sets offered so far have seemed different than their usual style-at least to me.

Is this like Cabbage patch dolls? When you can't get a set everyone goes crazy? The one good thing is that SU is coming up with new product all the time. Next month it will be something else. It teaches a person to act quickly or go without. Trust me we all have plenty but we have this desire for more. There lies the fun.

I had to look it up (haven't been a demo for a few years). I agree that it is nice, but not anything I'd rush to get. In fact, I'm not even grieving over it. I just saw 3 sets for $65 or more. Yikes. I could get a LOT of other product with that kind of money!

hi miss Allie. If you decide to sell it I would be very interested. I also wanted it but was too late. They were sold out.
Blessings.

Just bringing this thread back because I read on a blog just now that Endless Wishes is making a reappearance in the 2014 Holiday catalog!! So, if anyone was thinking of tracking this down and paying way to much for it, you might want to hold off just a little while longer!!

Another item to my growing holiday catalog wish list and I won't even get a copy of the catalog until next month! But it's great that they are offering this set again, must have been a huge seller.

SU Endless Wishes is in the New Holiday Catalog that is coming out @ the end of August. So you'll be able to purchase it for regular price. Instead of buying from a Price Hiking!
