Have The Warehouse Sales Stopped?
Posted 18 October 2004 - 09:54 AM
On ebay now there are two 2004 Strongwater solids selling way below the cost that we all paid. I am tempted to purchase them using BIN and returning mine back to Saks, perhaps then the solids will not be sold at the warehouse sales

I agree --- They have not stopped selling solids at the warehouse sales.
Maybe a"nice" little note to our friend at EL to inquire???
I am so sure we will get a prompt and friendly answer .
It has been long enough for EL to have stopped the sales as promised.
How in the world are we ever going to believe them again???? And how can they look us in the face after not only promising but putting it in writing.

I think an email with the link to the auctions would be very appropriate.
It's just not right that we are seeing this years solids at deeply discounted prices.

What a shame and a terrible thing to do to collectors.

I also spoke with a "dealer" that attends these sales.
Did EL think we would not notice???????
EL is raking their SA's over the coals because sales are down and it is not their(SA's) fault.
My question to Mr.Anise remains the same-- Why would anyone buy retail when we can buy on Ebay????????

sold bustier solid perfume compact on ebay
I am the proud new owner of this bustier, the solid has perfume but no box. I paid $100 for a solid that retailed for $175 + tax and shipping from the Las Vegas store. Pretty expensive box...
From now on I will not use store charge cards on future purchases I will pay cash or use my Visa so if I need to do a return I can put in a dispute.

It does however make me feel good to see the 2 Carosels on Ebay going so high knowing I paid retail orignally.

Sorry to hear of your car accident and hope you are well on the road to recovery.
The only "carousels" we will see in the last couple years are the Harrods solids being that they are limited (I hope) now the costs of all the solids are being driven into the ground because of the warehouse sales and CCS.
Why does EL continue to do this to their loyal collectors?
If you feel this is not right- please show your support and post your opinions, remember we are a community and need to stick together

You have not stopped your passion for them, just not going to pay retail. That's more than understandable. Hopefully they will sit up and take (more) notice now !!
I hope that everyone reading this topic will follow Lisa's lead. Just imagine them all being inundated with returned solids!!
And, if they are on Ebay for BIN$100.00, just imagine what they were bought for!!
(Everyone has to make a profit, don't they?) - I would say about 50% of the BIN price, don't you think? . . . .

I can only for sure say that the solids and powder compacts being sold right now at the warehouse sales are last years and older. Not just empties are sold at the warehouse as they also sell returns from the CC stores and they still have their box.
The solids sell for $10.00 , the powder compacts sell for $5.00 at the warehouse.
The current solids and compacts being sold at discount maybe coming from SA's that are using their store discount to get them and then selling on ebay.
I was offered( she called me) a 30% discount by a SA that I don't use .
I declined ( kick me) and paid retail but never again will I pay retail.
Even some stores are offering "deals" to get this years solids sold as they are not doing well.
I feel bad for the SA's as this is not their fault but I can't keep paying retail when I can buy wholesale. Fool me once , shame on you. Fool me twice, Shame on me.
Check where you bought your solid -- some stores only refund within 30 days then you have to take a store credit.
