Hi Folks,
Harrods "Union Jack" powder compact is on EBAY. The item # is 2264534635 if you want to take a look at it.

Does anyone know if Harrods Estee Lauder solids are in?

I have just been to Harrods this morning and they do not have the new solids in as yet.

Hope this helps!

Wow....it already sold too. I just can't figure out how these end up on Ebay so quickly if they just hit the counters...... huh.gif

I think you may find that this is an old compact! Not the one being issued this year.

I am sure this will be clarified in due course! If I am wrong, I stand to be corrected!

I was informed this morning that none of the new solids have as yet been received, i.e. Strongwater (Tulips, Lillies, Hummingbird etc. plus the Union Jack Compact). The bears, pillar box and crown will not be in until October.

This compact is very puzzling to me. It's a stunning compact, but when did it come out? I received an 8-page layout from Harrods of all the solids and powder compacts coming out this year (October 4th) at their store, and the Union Jack compact was not among them. Jacky, maybe you could ask Harrods if there are any still available? I really like this compact and would be interesed to know how much it cost.

Hello Martha, They keep telling me they have not received them yet! They don't know when they will be arriving!!!!!!!

So this one is probably not the new one, unless it has been pre-released in the States.

It doesn't make sense!

I think Brigette was the winner of the Union Jack that was on EBay. Maybe she can tell us if it is a compact from the past or the new one.

Hi Barb,

I have no clue. I just bought it as I don't yet have it in my collection.
I have another one with less rhinestones. As soon as we will have a pic of the new to be issued one we can compare.

Part of the secret has been unveiled as I got the powder compact today.
I immediately called Alison to ask if she already has the compact or if she at least had the # which always is on the top left on the outer white box.
It seems that the compact I bought is the new one that will be issued in October.
Alsion told me that they don't yet have it available.
I do hope EL people still visit our site and are aware that there still are strange things going on in their company. How can an item that is supposed to be Harrods exclusive be sold on eBay even before it has shown up at Harrods.
I really think there should be better controls at the EL company.

From the picture it looks great Margaret. Now if they do a solid, I will ask you to pick me one up whilst there!

Wonder if they will bring out a matching solid? Think that would be rather nice!
