Wow! I guessed pretty close to the price. But add tax and s&h, yikes! You are enabling me though. I don’t have kids either. We get no trick-or-treaters. I decorate for fall with too many pumpkins and two small ceramic black cats that were my grandma’s. Not much Halloween decor. What I do is for us (DH and I and the dogs, lol, and whatever company we have for Thanksgiving, etc.). Hmm, would it be so bad to add such a neat piece to my decor for me to enjoy?? It’s in my cart now. I’ll think about it a little longer...

By the way, I’m in Florida too so I totally relate about decorating to show the seasons even though we just have hot and not as hot.

@morewineplease  Sorry...don't mean to enable  but for some reason, I just love this cat and maybe I can figure out a way to incorporate it into some Thanksgiving decor too just to keep it out a little longer.   The price I mentioned includes tax and shipping so I did the Easy Pay (although I prefer to just pay for the items outright these days).  I think DH will kill me when it arrives even tho he enjoys all the JS pieces I have just as much as I do.  Let me know if you cave on it.  I'm at work this morning but gonna try to catch the show when he will present it.

For some reason or other, I don't care for Jim Shore's things.  Guess they just don't appeal to me.

@MTH@morewineplease  I sure don't want to enable either but compare this price on the new 8 plush snowlady compared to the 20" cat.  Snowlady is 55 plus S&H and cat is only $14.00 more than snowlady.  Twice as big.

Yes,the price isn’t bad for such a large piece. In case you didn’t see my other post, I already caved. 😊

If I hadn't ordered the Q2 TVS recently, the Angel and auto delivery, I would have ordered the cat.  I love it and I would keep it out all year !  

 

The price is well worth it and Jim's pieces are works of art.  I have many and love each and every one.  I mentioned this on other posts, I met Jim Shore at a store signing when he first came out in the collectible world.  He was gracious, polite and friendly, a true gentleman.  I believe he hasn't changed one bit !!!

 

He has stayed true to his artistic style and I am very impressed by the work he puts into each piece, a true talent in his field of creativity.

It doesn't take much for me to be talked into a JS piece, especially these new "large" ones.  Just love the statement pieces. 

 

@morewinepleaseHope you enjoy yours!!  Sure sounded like they sold a good bit of them in a very short time

@spider woman
At least you’ll be getting the witch which I thought was really neat. I couldn’t decide on the Santa or Angel A-D so missed out.

So neat that you got to meet Jim. He seems so nice. I only started collecting his items a few years ago so don’t mind adding to my collection, especially with such neat statement pieces.

@MTH
Your cat is going to look so good with the witch. Hope you enjoy yours too!
