The Retired List is here... and a CONTEST!

For those of us who are SU fans, we were eagerly awaiting May 1 to see what sets "made it" and which ones are being retired to make way for new goodies. Well, the list is here - all 2 pages of it. Check it out for yourself here.

As you can imagine, I'm losing quite a few sets, and I decided to hold a little contest. Whoever guesses closest to the number of sets* I'm losing - without going over - will receive the set "Bitty Bouquets" (which has been retired for a couple years). See, April showers really do bring May flowers! Sorry, U.S. guessers only (yes, I'm cheap!), and the contest will be open until Sunday night or until someone guesses the exact number.

*including hostess sets, but not wheels

Oh, I have no idea!!! But there are a lot of sets retiring! How about 54. I know that sounds like a lot too, but I have seen your room, once, and I know how obsessive you can be! (hee,hee)

KardKrazy said...

Well, I have no idea either, but I'll take a stab at it and say 20.

My guess is 26! I've always wanted that set, and didn't manage to get it before it retired.

15? But don't enter me, I live toooooooooo far away. I couldn't believe the length of the list! Have to comb through it later to see if there's anything I won't be able to live without.
