Craziness!!! I checked out the buyer and she has purchased 44 items this past month. She is paying STUPID money for lots of Stampin' Up sets. Someone needs to mail this lady a catalog along with a few order forms. She would be a GREAT customer!!!

Default I have it!!

I like it a lot, and live in ranch country, but I think I'd like $200 better! I've never sold a stamp set on ebay before, think I should give it a try?

I have been watching all of the wild wild west sets on the bay - the first one sold for 117, 125 and now 200! Crazy! There is another set up right now, end in a couple of days and it is currently over 100!
As much as I would love to have this set, I can't see ever spending that much on it!

Just a thought, but I'm wondering if the great interest and apparent value of this set has anything to do with the movie, "Brokeback Mountain"?

For those of you who've seen this movie, you'd have to admit it does have some resemblence to the characters.

Should you see the movie, you'll definitely see them in a "different" light...and they are simply HOT playing it gay or straight

WOW! I own this set now. Looked for it forever. Finally found it on the bay, but I only paid $80. And I thought that was a crazy amount to pay then.(Had to have it no matter what it cost) Love it though and probably will NEVER sell it unless I'm completely broke and even then it would be hard for me to sell. LOL!!! I'm a cowboy, old west ADDICT if you haven't figured that out yet.

Man, I'm as big of a stamp junkie as the next girl, but I don't think I could ever bring myself to spend that much money on a stamp set.

Wow, that is a insane amount to pay for a set,,but I guess if you really really want it, you'll pay anything to get it! I've seen "Brokeback Mountain" and it's a great movie,,,I enjoyed it, whether they are gay or not. It's a movie worth seeing.

It was I that sold that set and I promise you I listed it at a reasonable price! I don't know what to say! I feel guilty- That is a huge amount to pay and it did cover my Spring Catty order nicely!

Perfect example of the law of supply and demand at work. The set is retired and hard to find, so supply is scarce and demand is through the roof. I should forward some of these links to my old economics professor to use as examples in his lectures!

I have been watching these sets on ebay..
This is not the first one that is going to sell for over 200.00
One sold for 268.00 maybe 3 weeks ago.
I would love to have this set, but not at that cost...

Had this set and sold it. Didn't get $200 for it. Just purchased Happy Trails on Ebay for a friend and it cost her $88.00. I imagine this set will also increase in price. I have always told my customers that SU stamps are an investment.

I could buy sooooooooooo many stamps with $200.00 !!! I'm one of those that thinks that they have to have every stamp sete but $200.00 could'nt do it.

I think we may all agree it is a ridiculous price to pay for a stamp set, even this stamp set. However, I think we all wish we were on the selling end of this stamp set. I know I spend a fortune on stamps and I am not a demonstrator. If I were, I would do the same as you to buy more stamps. Because that's what it is all about isn't it, "MORE STAMPS". More power to you fellow stamper, YOU ROCK!
