Did I say all the solids lost half their value? Did I? Huh? Did I? Noooooo…..jeezzzz, Sandra…you're one tough cookie, little one! <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

If the Carousel had started out at, say, $99 with a reserve of possibly $500, then went to $800, I'd understand (although it would NOT be my bid.) But, this seller wants $1,295 straight out of the gate! Obviously, said Seller has lost touch with reality and the economy, although there will always be some determined Buyer willing to part with that much money for one Solid. And that's fine for them, but not for me.

I truly believe we're seeing an upswing in values on evilbay and other venues, so don't think for a second that the solids are only worth half of what we paid. They are worth what we paid, plus whatever memories came with them. Maybe that's the best part. You really cannot put a price on a memory, can you.

Of course, this is just IMHO. <img src='style_emoticons//rolleyes.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’rolleyes.gif’ />
