Understood, Lisa. I'm cutting back but still buying the ones that I really want – a few new ones each year. The manager at Neiman Marcus was disappointed that I'm only buying one solid from her. She kept trying to talk them up. Not only do I plan to wait till they hit ebay, I just truly don't “love” most of them. I think many designs are unimaginative and repetitive.
Keep postin' – we miss you!
Yup, that's why I had to give up collecting <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> I am not going to waste my hard earned dollars (well, Jack's dollars <img src='style_emoticons//huh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’huh.gif’ /> ) on something that WON'T HOLD IT'S RETAIL VALUE!
Sad but true!
