      Hasn't everything. Casting metal has increased 25% in the last three
      months. Go figure: gold is down, lead and tin are up. I'm hoping it's
      a temporary spike but I doubt it will go all the way back down to where
      it was.

Since then, they've discontinued their colonial lines, brought them back, discontinued them again, but made them available as 'special order,' i.e., sold at higher price, items. So, my strategy has been to watch for discounts of any sort (even the 10% is something) and keep an eye on what folks are selling on e-bay and Bartertown. Ultimately, I suppose if I really want something of theirs, I'll have to break down and place an order. At full price. Eventually.
