Back in early January, I saw an announcement on TMP regarding an Amazon offering of a Winsor & Newton Series 7 Four Brush Gift Set. All included in a handsome box too. The price of four such fine, Kolinsky sable brushes? An unbelievable price of USD$17.50 was all that was asked. Four W&N Series 7 brushes for USD$17.50? Amazing!
The caveat was that shipping date was listed as between March and April 2016. I am patient, I can wait. So, I ordered two sets each one day apart. Well, yesterday and today, I received notifications from Amazon saying,
Lack of availability? I wonder if Amazon ever had a supplier lined up to offer these sets for under USD$20? Hard to imagine. Perhaps, it was a pricing error?
Anyway, this set retails for over USD$100 but can be found online for about USD$75.
When the price seems too good to be true, sometimes it is!
