Yes, Pete. Most people have no idea of what is involved in making a good set of cups and how hard it is to keep them in stock. I have sold out every run of my minis and the first run of my jumbos. To be profitable (worth making) at all, the cups must be made in some quantity - not one set at a time. This quantity of invested money, time, and materials will yield no return until every cup is completely finished and sold. It can easily be weeks until a run can get completed. Then one day the spinner just says "I'm tired of making these" and they are no longer available. This happens with anything - not just cups. The number of quality cups currently available is actually amazing. And more are on the way! It has never been so good for cups fans. The cost of the first cup? Well, I needed over $10,000 worth of shearing, spinning, and polishing machinery before I could make the first cup! Above that is the cost (time, tooling, materials) of experimentation/development. Cups are cheap! "Get 'em while you can" and before the prices go up! Just since I created my "Selecting a Set of Cups" web page, two styles of cups have vanished from the marketplace. Pete, we are providing performance tools and collectables for the future.
