it all leads me to wonder if that expensive stuff actually "feels" like it's THAT much better or it's just for "prestige" or the flashing of da bling that gets people to spend that much  ???

This is how the other half lives.  :D

It's not nuts if you make millions on Wall Street (remember the $10,000 shower curtain?) or take home $20 million a picture.  This is probably what Oprah, Julia Roberts, or Will Smith sleep on.

It's very easy to piss away tons of money on stuff like this (non performing assets).  Remember all the millions Mike Tyson made from boxing?  The guy is now broke... where did all his money go?  Aides, bills, and frills (like expensive bedding) can easily drain millions...  :'(

There are somewhat frugal wealthy people that don't spend money on material goods like they could.  

That being said, I wouldn't be surprised if Oprah had a 30,000 bed ;D

my 1000tc sheets do feel really good!!  Not $8900 good though!!  But sheets can last, and they are imperative for a good night sleep, so they are a health benefit.

I bought them when they were on sale marked down from $240 to $140.00 (king set)

 I need another set.

I think it is primarily the former.  As I said before, that $800 pillow felt unlike any pillow I have ever felt; if I had the money to piss away, I would certainly have bought 2 or 4 of them.  When you buy a Bently or a Benz everyone can see your car.  When you buy an expensive pillow, the only one who knows about it is you.

We all have things we indulge in: jewelry, cars, clothes, stereo equipment, vacations, etc.  There is nothing necessarily wrong with this.  Rich people are simply able to do it on a scale that most of us can only dream about.

Ah, to sleep on that pillow... Sigh.  :)

I have an older sister who loves embroidering pillow cases. She is very creative on her designs. As a matter of fact, she has 21 pillows on her room, without them she can't sleep well.

I can see that.

I dropped the hint for those pillows last night...  ;D

I feel like a sinner for even wanting those pillows; there is nothing wrong with the pillows I have right now.  Am I evil? :-[

No.  Why would you be evil?  If your friend can afford them w/no hardship, he should get them for you!  The making of those pillows create(d) jobs.  Tell him to send me one as well.  It's for the good of the country!

An $800 pillow seems like a silly indulgence, don't you think?  Never mind two.  Are down pillows animal friendly?  Would PETA approve?  Are down pillows made from dead birds/ducks or do they kill them specifically to grab the feathers?  Anyone know? ???

Down can be collected in a variety of ways. Birds which provide the feathers may be used for other purposes, for example to provide meat. Some birds are killed solely for their down, while some birds (particularly some geese) are periodically live-plucked of their breast feathers. Some birds, such as the eider duck, line their nests with down, and such down is harvested safely after the young leave the nest.

Oh and SCREW PETA

Hmm, most of that sounds like PR.  I bet most of them are killed specifically for their feathers.  Duck is not a popular meat compared to say, chicken, so it is not as if lots of them a killed and tons of feathers are left over which they might as well use for pillows and feather beds.  :(
