Whats the deal?

Cute toys right? I so wanted to fill Kinsley's room with of-the-wall, quirky things. I still have yet to find some that don't cost an arm and a leg though. The Elephant and frog are both $58, and Archie is $110. What? Kris, my husband, has this theory. Make something that appears like it took little or no time to make, or something that perhaps even a young child could make, and charge a ridiculously insane amount for it. He is certain people will buy it. There is something about buying something super expensive that makes it feel more special. Not sure why. I feel special finding a deal. But, if someone were to buy these for me, I guess I'd accept them. :)

  1. Great theory! I would be tempted to buy simple quirky animals for $58. They are just too cute! You know we should make some of our own! Well make owls and octupi(how do you spell that word). I mean, we can make those right?!! Kristin the photo of you and Kins on the swing is priceless! I love you lots and I can't wait to see you this weekend!
