Hi! Boy I am stumped ~ I'm still new at using this site so forgive me if my post looks weird, not too sure about the coding that seems to be required to get this added to the page..

Anyway,

My most favorite solid: The Firey Fox (must be tired, can't tell if firey is spelled correctly, looks funny at the moment - sigh - time to call it a day)
Least favorite: the golden rope with the blue stone, just does not appeal to me
I am from: Palermo, Maine
Number of solids in my collection: 2, I just bought the Fairy sniffing a flower, she's beautiful! and I also recently won the cherry that looks like a tiny apple on eBay.

Collector for: just started last month, although I do also have 2 of the powder compacts,the lady bug and the frog, I bought those a few years ago at Filene's. They don't seem to carry the really fancy perfume collectibles anywhere in Maine, at least I haven't seen them. Nice to find your site and have a chance to see all the wonderful creations! GREAT topic, lots of fun to read what others like - ;-)

Thanks!

Welcome Eggcentricity and congrats on your first solids. smile.gif

We talk about overproduction of the new solids but what we really want to know is how many of the Golden Rope compacts that EL made to start with. ph34r.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

Hi all, greetings from Idaho:

Nice topic:

Favorite - Red Christmas camilla

Least Favorite - Sunshine

Number in collection: Haven't counted lately, but it's in the hundreds. Have them in four big cabinets and don't have room for the recent ones, so they are in boxes. This collecting is a "sickness" but a good one.

Started collecting in 1984, but it was perfume bottles. I added a few solids here and there, but really got going in the early 90's. It's so much fun.

Thanks again, Lisa and Jack, for a great site!

Carolyn

Lisa,
You have hit the jack pot with this topic! I haven't seen this many posts to a topic in a long time. It is really interesting to hear what everyones favorites and dislikes are. My answers were based on the EL solids that were already in my collection. Yes, I actually have a solid I don't care for! You know how it is sometimes you purchase something and than after you look at it awhile you decide you don't care for it.

But if I was to answer those same questions based on EL solids I don't own my answers would be different.

My most favorite solid: I would love to own Cinderella's Coach
Least favorite: Sunshine Necklace
I am from: Branford, Connecticut, U.S.A.
Number of solids in my collection: 80 EL solids & 2 Corday solids. I also have several EL & YSL powder compacts.
