Hi guys,

I noticed the strongwater solids from 2004 that are JUST NOW getting into the stores are already on ebay. I don't know if any of you can recognize a real strongwater signature... is it authentic? See pix

strongwater 2004 with signature

Too bad I already bought them at the store unsigned. Oh well...

Seller is legit so the signatures should be as well.

Mark - You have an excellent point. The Singapore seller has more connections on eBay than I can count. Possibly also a member here.... There are more new solids where they came from, believe me. Unfortunately, this looks like one of the situations where one of the members stated that some sellers buy strictly to resell. It appears this might be true.

Read Lisa's post...all ours go "ground" delivery. Lauder is now shipping overseas...and it's not "ground," so it would get there sooner.

Your disappointment is justified, believe me. We're with you... sad.gif

Hello,
I am new here, I found this club on internet.
My english is not very good but I do hope you'll understand. I live in France and I bought some Estee Lauder cats or kitten solid for I really love them. I bought a strongwater signed Estee Lauder kitten on a chair from the Singapour seller you spoke.
I am looking for the only cat I haven't which was on sale by Fee, but it was too late for me.
I have nowhere except internet to buy them because they are not on sale here and I even don't know anything about the new which are coming on sale.
Regards to all members.

Hi chatbleu90 and welcome to the site! Can you tell us the name of the solid compact you are looking for, or describe it to us? Possibly someone here has one and can help you.

There is nowhere to purchase them in France? Is this true? That's so sad...can anyone overseas help her out as to where to find them? huh.gif

You CAN buy them here in the US simply by calling on the telephone. Also, Harrod's ships everywhere. There is a list of places to call if you click on the tab above that says "Store Locations."

Again, welcome...hope to hear more from you. smile.gif

Hello and thank you for your nice answer.
A member from Italy sent me a mail about Switzerland to buy Estee Lauder solid, it may be near from where I live.
Otherwise I can try in Paris, but the best would be to buy them in the stores you mentionned on the site.
I think now the signed solids are bought by sellers who sell them on ebay and you have no other choice if you want one. As for me I didn't even know who was Strongwater and Judith Leiber before buying the solid.
I thought I had one cat missing in my collection but seing your database I can now count two are missing, they are the beige enamel with a pink collar and the same with a green collar. I also began to buy the powder compact cats but there is no book and I don't know how many exist.
I do thank you for your warm welcome.

Hello Chatbleu, Have just seen your post. We are neighbours, courtesy of Eurostar!

It is quite easy to come to London but I have no idea where you are living in France.


If you need any help from here, please make contact. Harrods stock most of the solids so if there is anything in particular you are looking for, I can check for you.

There are other Collectors in France who you could also be in touch with...


Jacqueline

Hello,
I think you understood what I wrote so I can make you laugh with eurostar for if I lost money on the stock exchange with the eurotunnel I have free travel till 2042...
It's better to take this from the good side. It's a splendid work isn't ?
I live in the East of France, near Germany and Switzerland but I'm from Paris where my son is still working.
I got the chance to be an o'pair girl in New-York 35 years ago and I loved it, I do appreciate England, the food (yes) and the countryside.
I love cats, true one and Estee Lauder'cats too.
Regards.

Chatbleu90,
Welcome to the site. We love hearing from new people. Your English is good. If you will post what you want under Solids Wanted on this site, most of the time someone will have what you want. Once again, welcome and we hope you post often. smile.gif

We were in France in April and loved it. You have a beautiful country.

Welcome Chatbleu90! I've never been to France, but my sister was in Paris a few years ago and brought back many wonderful memories ... and perfumes! She spent about 3 hours in Sephora's and brought me back a bottle of perfume you could (at that time) only buy in France.

I love the cat solids, too. You'll have to tell us which one is your favorite.
