Ripoff alert

Williams Sonoma just sent me an email alerting me to the availability of this Easter product (or as they call it "springtime classic" to prevent confusing this fertility holiday with any Christian traditions):

Nest with Chocolate Truffle-Filled Eggs

Our nest will confound any ornithologist. The lovely creation is crafted from California-grown oak moss, lavender, oak leaves, yellow feverfew and dried miniature roses, whose young buds recall the sweetness of spring. It comes with 24 “robins’ eggs” – actually chocolate truffles cloaked in white chocolate and finished with a speckled candy shell. Use the nest as the centerpiece of a table or buffet. Approx. 11" diam. A Williams-Sonoma exclusive.

This bad boy runs $39.95. Hey if you want to spend 40 bucks on something with a WS tag on it that's fine with me but don't do it if it's comprised of products you can find for free on the ground or for a couple of bucks at Target or Michaels. This is inconceivably overpriced.
