I have seen them individually go for as high as 15.50 each at antique stores and as low as 6.50 each, the whole set with shelf go for as high as 140.00. I am no expert, but they are very pretty. I myself have a set..

I use either ebay or amazon as a tool to locate the value of an item I wish to sell.  I have the orange tabby cat on a thimble, and it is listed on e for 6.99 free shipping.....oh well....like they said it hasn't appreciated much.  There were a ton of the ladies thimbles you mentioned though.
