Las Vegas Compact Collector's Convention
Posted 09 June 2004 - 02:15 PM
Mine have been turning yellow (although they are still very pretty)!
Love the Strongwater Solids! Going back to read now!

We gave them a list of all of the solids ( per this board) and photos of them turning .
They want time to work out the problems chemically .
If they can solve the problem on one it should be easy for the rest.
The only disagreement we have with them at this point is how to get the old ones exchanged for the new , improved ones. I personally am not wild about sending in the slot machine but would not mind the bubbly going in the mail.
But we shall see.

As long as EL corrects the problem going forward I am not all that concerned with what went wrong in the past. Just my own opinion.

Thanks for the photo of new EL/Neiman Marcus crystal powder compacts. I noticed them in the picture you took of the Jay Strongwater solids. Did you get to see all the new EL powder compacts?

Thanks so much for the great photos and reports. Barb, I noticed those compacts, too ... they're lovely.

We did see the lovely solid color powder compacts, but there was one floral compact I thought was lovely and couldn't resist photographing...here you go:
The colors are very vivid...I really liked it.

Surprizingly the compacts by Erte were very elegant and I did like them in person very much.
They can be found under general solids talk the topic was 2004 powder compacts.

Had to go back 60 days to find the powders! Why do the most expensive ones always catch our eye first?
Am trying to remember Sunday...were the Judith Leiber powders presented with the same arrangement as the Strongwater solids or did I have too much champagne? That was some really great juice!

Well, the Strongwater solids are as I was told they would be. Fantastic! Agree with comments re the Judith Leiber solid designs. OK, OK will reserve final judgement until I see them all!
Meanwhile Lisa and Jack, Ann and Ken, Michele and, and ............appreciate all that has been written :

Thanks for adding the photo of the powder compact. Jay Strongwater's solids are just amazing! I think it is going to be very easy to spend $1,500.00 on solids this year. Thanks Lisa, Jack, Michele, Ann and Ken for all the wonderful photos. They sold me on Jay's solids.

With three days in New York, we closed our 14 day trip in the USA. We landed lucky (by all controls in the USA and the border in Switzerland) Friday, early in the morning in Zurich, without problems The suit-cases are unpacked and the laundry in ìworkî. Iím very surprised that we are not more tired, after all the changes of climates and the enorm time shift. It seems, as we would have found already again our rhythm.
After I read everything on the bord about the Convention, there is nothing remaining to ad on this. Like Lisa already said, I also can't express how great it was to put finally some names with faces, meeting members of this bord! So I like to thank once more Lisa and Jack for there/îourî board - thank you so much ñ you both are realy wonderful!
Talking about wonderful people, we would like to thank naturally and primarily Ann and Ken for the beautiful, unforgettable time, which we had the luck to spent together ñ cordial, tausend thanks for everything - it was unbelievably beautiful - you both know how we enjoyed and estimate it - you are just absolutely wonderful!!!
Ö..and at last, I like to thank Daniel Anise of EstÈe Lauder. Because he took the time to talk and to listen at every individual Collector, in a very sympathetic way, he gave me the security back, that EstÈe Lauder estimates us Collectors (despite everything!). The future will point out, whether my feeling deceives me!
Have all a wonderful Weekend!!!
Greetings from Switzerland
Liliane & Hans
