I just threw some cutters like that out! Not Jack Frost - but that type. I hate them - I never can get the cookie out!
Am I missing something? for a cookie cutter?

Never ask me to explain auctions. Those must be lined with gold. My girlfriend collects cookie cutters. I'll ask tomorrow what the significance is with these.

I felt the same way when I watched a Martha Stewart beehive pan sell! I collect several different things so I see this often. You wouldn't believe what some of those M & M or Pillsbury Doughboy items bring. I collect both.

are those the red plastic cutters, the ones that never let the cookie dough out?

We used to have to drill little vent holes in ours with a dremmel tool..lol

After my first set, I never , ever bought any more, they were more of a pain in the neck than they were worth. I tried to see the image, but the bidding is over and the item is no longer there..

They're actually turn of the century antique plastic cookie cutters imported from saturn's third ring brought to earth by none other than E.T himself. (They were his great, great grandmother's) That's why they are so valuable....he he he...

I was able to scroll down on the page to see the image. (It did say bidding was over near the top, but the image was still there.)

Holy jumping jehosaphat....I am in the wrong business if plastic cookie cutters are selling for that on ebay. I checked out the bidding and the same person kept raising the bid but in the end someone else got them. Geez..I would be afraid to use them for fear that I would melt old Jack Frost.... icon_lol.gif

ROFL!!! That's just too funny. I had to double check to make sure I read that winning bid price right... That is just crazy! If I had money like that, I'd be buying any little knick knack just for the heck of it...

Hmmm. I think that the person who was bidding themself up had placed a "maximum" bet so when someone else would go to place a bid, it would jack up the previous ??better's?? bet... LOL. Ok, I'm tired. I should just go to bed... LOL icon_confused.gif

If you look at the time of the bids, michele placed her max bet at 3:20 and the winner placed his inital bid at 4:13 and because it was lower than michele's max bid, he had to keep raising his bet. But still, 175 for cookie cutters!

That person wasn't raising the bid....what happened is they set what is known as a "max bid".....then someone tried to outbid them and it raises the bid to the next highest to beat the new person's bid....so it appears that they are bidding against themselves. Then when the new bidder beats the original's max bid, it will show them as the winning bid. At least that's what I think happened there.

OK...and what in the world is up with those cutters? I can hear my husband laughing if I told him I wanted a cookie cutter for anything over $10!
