I admit it. I get attached to my stamps and when they retire, I feel like they get cast off, socially, like it's uncouth to use a retired stmap set. (Maybe this phenomenon just happens among demonstrators, Idunno.)
Anyway, I would like to know what retired set(s) you still love or do you care if a set is on the retired list and put out to pasture?

I don't have a favorite set, but my favorite retired SU stamp is a dragonfly "hand stamped by" stamp. I still use it at my demo's house and its retired status doesn't bother me at all.

I do! I haven't bought from them in a few years, but I have always loved Season's Sketches, Haunted House, Button Bear and my very first set that got me hooked is a set with horses, but I don't have the name of it on the container.

I've kept almost all my retired sets - except holiday when I've used them so much it is time to pass them along to another good home.
My favorite ones are "A little birdie told me"

I saw a number of cards recently with a stamp I really liked. Did some searching and found that it's a line of SU called Pocket Silhouettes but it's retired and really hard to find. I think that's probably why demonstrators steer clear of using them. A lot of times they are trying to promote sales and using a product that's not available for purchase isn't going to do them much good.

Not the stamps but there is a retired punch I covet. Couldn't find one at a reasonable price so I bought a die that is sort of the same. It's just not the same though. LOL

I don't have a lot of sets and I can only assume they're retired since it's been awhile - I love the sketches sets (seaside sketches, summer by the sea, and the first sketches set)
I don't care if something is old or new, retired, or trendy or whatever. Makes no difference to me.
I think as far as demonstrators go though, they have to stick with newer sets to sell product.

Button Bear....I once saw it listed on Ebay for over $60.00. I still love it because it was my first SU set. I don't use it, but I do want to keep it.
