I was just visiting Ebay and checking out carts listed and there was a Hello Kitty cart listed for $145 and someone actually bid on it. It's shocking that anyone would pay that for a cartridge..a used linked cartridge at that! But that person sure made me feel better by paying $40 for one. BigGrin

How much would you be willing to pay for a cart you just have to have??

It all depends. I did pay just over $100 for one cartridge I "had to have" a couple of years ago, but then new cartridges were priced at $80 and $90 at the time, so that wasn't really too much priced over retail. We sure are reaping the benefits of reduced technology costs with cartridges now going for $50 or less. And I have to say, those $10 cartridges....very attractive pricing! lol

Liza

PS Hello Kitty came out when the regular prices of cartridges were $119 (that's here in Canada...likely $100 in the US) as I recall. I believe I got my Hello Kitty cart for the bargain price of $89 at Michael's.

I saw a Hello Kitty go for $225 New Zealand. I stopped bidding around $100. That's my limit.

I sold mine on eBay a while back. I started them at $50 and set a Buy It Now at $90. Well, someone used BIN for HK Font within a few minutes of me listing them but someone bid on HK Greetings and it eventually went for $155.

I originally paid $8 for them when they were on clearance at Target and used the a few times. So all in all, a pretty nice investment.BigGrin

Not more than $30 at this point. That may change as I learn more about my Cricut and find more images that I just have to have. I've got enough for experimenting/learning for now.

I've seen those crazy prices on Ebay, too. I checked my purchase date list. April 10, 2010, I paid $29.99, at an online store, for Hello Kitty Font and a month later, I found Hello Kitty Greetings at J's, for near the same price.

I should have purchased several when I had the chance!

I've thought about selling my rare carts, too, but I know I'll be sorry later. The only one I don't have is the '09 Seasonal cart, When It's Cold Outside. They are selling at $99.99 and up, plus shipping. I did buy the digital, so I can wait for the cart!!!

If we could have only looked into the future!!

When I bought my HK carts...I found a sale..buy one get one free. At the time (summer 2011) I didn't even know if I'd ever use Hello Kitty but couldn't pass up the deal for under $40 (shipping included). I was later very happy I did invest in it because my grand daughter LOVES Hello Kitty and I've used that cart more than any other one I own.

The most I've paid for a cart is around $80 for the CTMH carts with my discount. I wish they would sell them seperately so they would be less inexpensive. Then perhaps more could buy them. It is a good deal for all you get tho. But not everyone stamps.
I keep debating on selling my rare carts too. But I'm sure I'd need them as soon as I sold them.

Usually 35 if I have to have it. Otherwise I try to wait and find them on ebay or on clearance.

I REALLY want the CTMH cartridges, but can't justify spending the money, even with the extras. I wish they'd sell the cartridges separately. I'd be happy with Artise and Art Philosophy since they've been out a while. I can't even imagine trying to explain to my hubby that I spent 100 bucks on a Cricut cartridge....

I have 3 of the most coveted cartridges, HK, HK font and Daisy Chain. Both HK's I bought through cricut machine for less then 30 each I think years ago. Daisy chain I got through rewards years ago. I linked it because it need to weld to be used IMO. I wish I had used all my points to get as many as I could have,

Try to justify it how I justify it to myself..because you get so many images and size options! Especially the CTMH and CM carts..those carts are LOADED with images and alphabets. Shoot, I was aying $70 (or more) for sizzix dies back in the day when they was a hot item. And that was just one single sized alhphabet! It's really easy to justify spending $100 on a cartridge (IF you will use it). They are economical..ya get a lot of bang for your buck!!!Love

I've never even heard of Daisy Chain. Might have to check it out and see what its all about. I have about 5000 points now but haven't seen anything I don't already have so they just sit there. Maybe one day they will add something new in there and I will be able to do some 'free' shopping.

That's a pretty cool font. Thanks for sharing the photo of it. Did it come on the gyspy or with some machine? It's so weird it's not listed in their library.

I have sold a lot of my older carts, like Christmas Cheer and New Arrival. I have been getting more than $60 a cart for them. I just feel like I have outgrown the artwork and I do mostly scrapbooking and I don't like to use repeat images or fonts in my pages.

Since I have weeded through my over 300 carts, I find that it gets easier and easier to make up my mind about what I want to cut for a particular project. I really do think the sheer amount of choices has been weighing me down and slowing down my creating. I have FINALLY shaken off this competist attitude I have held on to for so long. I want to get down to about 50 of my favorite art carts. (And I have another machine for fonts!).

I think it was a giveaway to something at some point. I don't remember the details but it wasn't ever for retail sale. I regret not buying one with my points when I had the chance.

It's great you have been able to downsize your cartridge inventory. 300 carts is a lot!!! I haven't been able to do that. I only have about 130 carts and I'm finding that I still don't have the cart that has the image that I'm wanting for a layout. But I make due.

I think its listed twice because there was a US version and an international version. No clue what the difference is but yeah.

I first saw Daisy Chain Solutions, several years ago, in Rewards, but didn't get it. It was given out at the 2007 CHA.

I finally found one in January, at a reasonable price, on Ebay!

So the Daisy Chain cart came out before I got really interested in cricut. Bought my Expressions in 2011.
