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.

Love the "Pattern of Friendship" set. Had to search high and low for it a couple of years ago as it was already retired.

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 love the Girl Scout and Boy Scout sets. Unfortunately they retired before I could purchase them

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"
Loads of Love
Kindred Spirits
Itty Bitty Backgrounds (which creates a look like misting.)

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.
