In Berlin, a rare stamp featuring classic movie star Audrey Hepurn sold for a whopping $93,800 at auction. This piece of postage features Ms. Hepburn with a cigarette holder dangling from her mouth.
This Audrey Hepburn stamp was printed in 2001 as part of a run of 14 million stamps. It was subsequently destroyed, however, when the actress' son objected to the cigarette and refused to give copyright.
Implications - With the economic recession in slow recovery, consumers are now willing to open up their wallets and spend their cash. Companies should consider what luxurious products they can provide in order to feed this need.
