Thanks Lisa, Don and Margaret for your tips!

Thanks to Estee Lauder for having such a variety of solids every year. They work with more than one artist/designer and as a result there is something for everyone.

Last year most of the solids that I purchased were from Neiman Marcus. This year most of my solid purchases will be from Saks and Harrods. Sometimes its not even the designer that makes the difference but it's the subject matter and colors, enameling and crystals that make the difference.

All I know is I like twice as many solids this year than I liked last year! rolleyes.gif rolleyes.gif

The postman is going to be very busy delivering solids to my house!

The Harrod's solids just knocked me out, especially after my initial disappointment with the Judith Leiber and General Distribution solids this year. Love all of the Strongwaters, but the Harrods (IMHO) are in a league of their own. I think my favorite may be the Teddy Bear, but love the post box and crown, too.

Me too, Martha. I was soooooo disappointed in the Judith"s. sad.gif I just expected more "glitz". I LOVE the Strongwater's ........but OH MY!! the Harrod's are so wonderful. biggrin.gif I only have one Harrod piece......but I really want that darling little Teddy AND the glorious Lion and Crown.


Of course this all means that Rob (my husband) is mopping his brow and wringing his hands.......he'll get over it!! If not, you might find me under the petunias in the back yard!! tongue.gif Ha......I'm joking of course!! laugh.gif laugh.gif laugh.gif

I am really excited about the Harrods solids and cannot wait until they are available for purchase. As some of you have mentioned, this will definitely make up for the disappointing Leiber solids. So between the Harrods and Strongwater solids, I will have to try to be good and not spend too much money until then. unsure.gif

Lisa, Thanks for sharing the pics with us.

Now we're talking! I will buy them all. The bear is my favorite...and one of the few solid themes I have a complete collection of. The crown is much better than I thought.

Better save up $$. I've been a good girl on ebay the past few months. Hopefully, I can continue so I can buy the fabulous Harrods and Strongwater solids. cool.gif

I love them all but think I like the Post box best. Can't wait to see them in real life.

I am going to stick my neck out here, eventhough I'm new to this site. Hopefully you will take this the right way and we can have a lively discussion.
What on earth is the Harrods logo doing on the Post box??? How come EL makes tatty tourist souvenirs for Harrods (have you seen what other Harrods souvenirs this department store sells, they have a whole shop of junk)? I was horrified to see that the Shopping bag solid sold for 700 at eBay recently. I think that EL should make EL souvenirs if they are into that, like something really special commemorating Estee herself.
However, the Crown is fabolous, that is a tourist souvenir alright, but for London not for a department store...
I am looking forward to hear from you!

Hi Karin -

Wow! Glad you started this one and not me. Have to agree with you 100%. Just don't care for all the advertising on the Harrod's solids. sad.gif There's a lot more I could say about them, but don't want to upset the apple cart for anyone who likes them.

Ok...I'll say it...the Post Box only needs a handle to become a Beer Stein. The bear looks like he has 2 ear infections. And I just can't picture Queen Elizabeth with that thing on her head. There. Said it! tongue.gif

To each his own...that's what keeps the ball bouncing! rolleyes.gif

Have a great day. smile.gif

Got some tidbits today about the new 2004 Harrods solids- this year the teddy bear's name is Thomas. I also heard that Leonard Lauder himself designed the crown.

Can promise this information but I have heard that quantities are limited to the following:
Thomas the teddy bear 300
Lion with crown 150
Post Box 300

You are right Ann, I remember that cartoon.

When I look at the teddy I now think- Thomas the tired teddy- because of his PJ's!
