To me the original price for the set seemed outrageous, but I really adore it for $10. I got a couple of them, and use it for Samantha as well.
It is true that you can replicate things at the dollar store, but it saves me time and energy just to have this set perfect and ready-made. It makes such a lovely scene on Elizabeth's $14 night table (which combined with this set totals only $24 now--amazingly reasonable!)
I don't mind the lightness of the mirror. I now have such a large heavy collection that I'm actually appreciative that it's not one more item to add yet more weight to my unwieldly trunk.
I simply ended up liking it more than I thought I would. I understand everything that was written above, but I personally would miss it a lot if for some reason I didn't have it any more. So from me it gets an A. If you're thinking of getting it before it retires, I highly recommend it.
