Anthropologie..really?

I was browsing Anthropologie (more to "borrow" ideas than to buy)and my eye was caught by this doily bib necklace

http://www.anthropologie.com/anthro/catalog/productdetail.jsp?subCategoryId=&id=19309368&catId=JWLACC-NEW-JEWELRY&pushId=JWLACC-NEW-JEWELRY&popId=JEWELRYACCESSORIES-NEW&sortProperties=&navCount=210&navAction=middle&fromCategoryPage=true&selectedProductSize=&selectedProductSize1=&color=012&isSubcategory=&isProduct=true&isBigImage=&templateType=D

for 158 dollars...
REALLY Anthropologie? This is insane! For some doilies I can get at the Ladies of Charity for a buck and some brass chain?

It is funny really, I just shake my head.

That's Anthropologie for you! The same with Urban Outfitters, but to a lesser extent.
I do agree that it's ridiculous for companies to slap together stuff you can find in a church dumpster and sell it for such high prices.

Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie are under the same company umbrella, and i was expecting to find this necklace:

I've never shopped at Anthropologie before but after I saw this I had a look, and you're right! What a rip off!
I just made a necklace like one I saw on the website - I'll post it once my images start uploading again D:

I always go into both Urban Outfitters and Anthropologie, and I get their mailers. Mostly for the art ideas I can gleam from them, but I do give them credit for knowing how to put on a sale! Yes, their original prices are COMPLETELY outrageous, but their sale prices are unbelievably good! So I have bought stuff from them, when I find the sale table!
