Scalping Pretty Little Pincushions Book

I just wanted to chime in about the rash of scalping for the Pretty LIttle Pincushions Book.

Evidentially there is a modern belief that if Amazon is out of stock a title it's suddenly "rare". For crying out loud people, it only came out in November, it's not even "out of print" yet.

Well truth be told Pretty Little Pincushions, while appearing to be really popular, is not in fact a rare commodity. It's available at MANY online sellers for cover price ($17.95) or less still, despite Amazon sellers offering it for upwards of $40 and a recent auction at eBay that has a copy for $150 or best offer!!!

Since I don't believe in scalping, and Amazon is was out of stock, I have changed my sidebar button to buy the book to Barnes and Nobel's site, who sells it for $14 online, and $17 in the stores. I want everyone who wants a copy to have one at the best price out there.

EDIT: June 1 2008 - Amazon does in fact carry the title again.

Wow, I didn't even know that was going on. Amazing.

BTW, I love looking thru the book ... someday I WILL make something.
