That much for cookie cutters? icon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_eek.gificon_surprised.gificon_surprised.gif
I don't mind using that kind, my mom used them all the time but I don't think she had those cutters. I'll have to ask though.
After paying that much I'd keep mine in a safe and wouldn't let them near the kitchen. icon_lol.gif

I'm seriously going to have to raid my mother's supply! I just don't get it. They're plastic for crying out loud.

This is exactly why I don't do auctions! The one time I bid was when I went with a girlfriend to a farm aution down the road from me and and found an old soup turine I wanted so she said she'd bid for me. Well after watching a while it looked pretty easy so went ahead and made a bid on it myself. I was bidding against her (myself actually!!) and was sooo excited when I GOT IT!! LOL It never occurred to me that I was bidding against her. I guess I was pretty dumb back then (20 yrs +) but I bet I could get stupid and do it again, so I still stay away from auctions. LOL !!! She and I still laugh about that. I'll leave e-bay to you!! But good luck!

Just got off the phone with my girlfriend that collects cookie cutters and she knows nothing about these particular cutters. I asked if she had a book on them and she doesn't--so much for that idea!

It is a case of supply and demand where collectibles are concerned. Obviously these must be hard to find. You should see what the Pillsbury Doughboy finger puppets bring. No way I can afford them for my collection. As they say.............one man's trash is another man's treasure.

I think they are just adorable and they are probably quite rare so I can understand how the price is that high. Would I pay that much? NO WAY lol but I have a snow globe collection (around 40 of them) so I'm sure if I saw a rare one I might go a little crazy lol I also have a pillsury cookie jar which I bought new and it cost $60. cdn about 10 yrs ago and I have a Planters peanut jar about 14 inches tall really cute from around 1930's so who knows what people think lol

I wouldn't dare post what I have paid for some of my collectibles. You guys would think I was crazy. Being bit by the collectible bug is worse than being addicted to CC. I bought a character pan off of Ebay and the next thing I knew, I had a shed full of them. Sad part is that I hardly ever use one of them (BUT I KNOW THAT THEY ARE THERE IF I EVER NEED ONE icon_lol.gif ).

I have over 300 whiskey pitchers, at least 1000 M & M collectibles, close to that many Doughboys, Budweiser steins (all the holiday ones), old irons, old kitchenware, antique furniture, and all kinds of sports memorabilia for the Chiefs, Cardinals, and Jeff Gordon. Guess I am just an addict all way around................

Geez, Diane, sounds like another addiction to me. Actually, I am going through an e-bay phase with the character pans - and dh says don't you have a lot of those pans that you don't use now? Hmm...

They weren't bidding themselves up, they were trying to outbid a previous bidders proxy......ummm............wow! look at that sellers feedback! Pretty good!


Maybe we should email them and ask them whats so special about them....I'm assuming they're antique or vintage, but stilll.........HOLY COW!!!! If I had money like that to spend on cookie cutters, well......


Maybe the E.T. story is true, lol!






But, forget finding 100 of them to sell, lets just go into business and make them......I know, I know, then the price wouldn't go up on them.......did you see the starting bid............$5.

I had to look at what else this buyer had bought...they spent 10.50 for a dalmation cookie cutter and 31. for a mad hatter cookie cutter....??????

Maybe that particular cutter has some childhood significance for the buyer. I know that if I wanted something from my childhood and I could afford it, I probably would bid more than it is actually worth to others. I mean, the other day I paid $4 for a package of 8 FIZZIES.... that was 50 cents each just so my kids can experience a peice of my childhood.

More than one person must have wanted them for the bid to go that high. I am determined to find out what they usually sell for. Just haven't had time to look in any of my antique books.
