For just $15 you could have ordered one 3D printed rose, with stem, bow, and all. If you were a little more affectionate, you could have ordered the half dozen rose package for $45, or the full dozen roses, delivered for $100. The packages were rose1only offered in the San Francisco area, and the quantity available was unknown.

If you were waiting until the last minute to order your plastic roses, tough luck. Makeshop has announced that they sold out of all 3 packages.
