From the L.A. Times: Anthropologie's $2,175 book set -- and how to get it for $250
What do six books in a custom-made wooden case add up to? A $2,175 price tag at Anthropologie. Just six books. And that's not all -- here's the catalog copy:
A one-of-a-kind set in a custom-made case, curated by Kinsey Marable, who left his job as an investment banker to deal with a more exotic commodity: rare and out-of-print books. His passion to create distinctive libraries led him to select these books; the mahogany-stained Baltic birch bookshelf is custom built for the custom collection.
Because the set is custom-made for the books included, and the books are used, Anthropologie has just a handful available; each is organized by theme. The $2,175 "society" set is the most expensive. The "drinks" set is several hundred dollars cheaper -- at $1,400, the buyer can afford a few bottles of special edition Dom Perignon, 40-some 12-packs of Pabst Blue Ribbon, or anything in between.
