    Yes, the person is either insane -- or forgot the decimal point!

    Personally I think the person is more than a "bit" overpriced.

    I knew a lady that worked for a production company. She was sent out to shop for small props for scenes in movies. She had to go to all thrift stores and antique malls, and dealers to find the right props to decorate a room. When Ebay and other sites like that made it easy to shop for items she was so happy. She would pay that much for this if it was for a prop. I've seen her pay over $500 for a vase that had the perfect coloring for a table to be in a movie set. You never know who bids on items.
    Got fabric?

    A litle out of touch I would say, but then again, "nothing ventured, nothing gained." It will be interesting to see if the come down on the price at some point.
