I just see these diapers as "luxury". I mean, seriously, the price is waaaay up there. they are just diapers after all.
that said, i think she has the right to charge that much. so much work goes into each one. it's really mindblowing. my grandmother is a seamstress-- has been all her life. i KNOW how much work goes into making clothes. lori not only makes the clothes, she makes the dyes, dyes the fabric, etc, etc. that's a LOT of extra work. i seriously doubt greed is what motivates her.
I could never afford those diapes, unless i were to endulge-- once a year type thing. it doesn't make me sad, cause that's how it is with everything. I can't afford the antique oak table i'd like for my kitchen, or all the dankso clogs i want
, that's just life, yk?
are they art? that's open for interpretation.
now, i've never ordered from the garden, but i think the auction approach is a bit elitist. not her fault, though. it's the bidders!
reminds me of when the dot com boom was happening here, to try to get an apartment you had to offer more money to even be considered. that pissed me off! why did the people with more money get to have bigger, nicer places? cause they could offer more money. same with auctions, they could be a lot more "controlled", for lack of a better term, if the bidders had a little more patience and were more willing to lose.
just my $0.02.
