Default New Catty - how many NEW, must-have stamp sets will there be

I've been a demo less than a year, so I don't have a lot of "history" with SU to go on. Do you know about how many new stamp sets appeared in the present catalog? How many were real must-haves? Like In Full Bloom and Shapes and Shadows. Those universally-loved sets that are so versatile. I realize that might be different for everyone.

Just wondering what you think!

okay I am going to be , but last year I got about $500 in new stamps when the catty 1st came out, and that does NOT include the mini catalogs.

So I am guessing A LOT !!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm with Britta- I did a $500 order just for myself and I still did not get everything on my wish list. Not even CLOSE!

I might be mistaken, but don't they retire and replace 100 sets every year??

Note to self...start saving for a big July order.


Note to self...you turn 30 in July...order whatever the he!! you want!


Note to self...tell husband that stamp order, no matter how much it is, is still cheaper than Botox.


Note to self...start scientific study that stamping prevents wrinkles.


I could go on alllll day!

It seemed like they retired more than 100 last year.

Contact your demo in May for the retiring list!

All I know is that after 9 months of buying and buying, I finally have all of the sets that I wanted once the new catty came out last July. Of course that doesn't count all of the sets I didn't have any intention of buying until I saw all the great samples here on SCS (read paisley and balmy breezes) and the sets I have purchased out of the minis. Now I am just patiently waiting for the new catty so I can start the wish list and buying all over again.

Now I must make a visit to the gallery to see which stamp set I must have next!

Yes, they did retire 186 sets last year. I just hope this year that they replace a few more of the holiday sets. I still want sets from this catty and now the new one is so close. Decisions! Decisions!

That's true for me as well. It doesn't help that your wishlist grows as the year goes on also. I JUST completed my wish list this month (I think... until I see something else that is cool ).

And now we can all count on about 1/2 being retired. Most of my sets are retired, and I actually have 2 sets that have never even been put together that are already retired.

Absolutely Hilarious! However, I just don't think my husband, the attorney, would buy it. TFS
