As by now we usually have all the new ones we don't feel too guilty.

That makes perfect sense that that would happen... the ones that benefit are the people scooping up the solids at the warehouse sales. The higher the prices go for them, the more they want to sell, and just feeding more into the problem. No matter what, these warehouse sales are a losing situation for us and winning for them.

I feel that I ma entitled to somewhat of a price break because I've spend lots of $$$$$$ and would like to for once, get a better deal on a compact or a solid.
Have decided not to buy any of the new solids this year...GDs and exclusives.
Anyway...everything right now is relative to the costs involved in my bathroom remodel.

I like solids but now view them in "real" terms to use an economist's jargon. One solid is equal to a mortgage repayment, a new pair of shoes etc. Can I justify spending that amount of money on an ornament? In the end EL are just ignoring the basics of marketing. Who is king? The customer, the customer, the customer!! How do you focus your business: on what the customer wants, on what the customer wants!! Well this customer wants solids to be cheaper (much), better quality, prettier, and come with a limited edition signed certificate giving a number out of the total - otherwise they are just a pretty perfume, not a collectible .
Hi I'm Kasi and haven't been here in a while
I agree with you totally Lyndell. I agreed with you a couple of years ago and stopped purchasing the entire line from Neimans, Lord and Taylor and Harrods. Now I only buy what I really like</b>
Also I think the poduction has gotten worse and the flaws worse and not better. magnetic clasps ala china...give me a break.... Not at these ridiculous prices.
Why can't they number them like they did the mothers day necklace? Then we would really know how many were made....
Waving Hi to Pamela(estee lady) Ken and Anne, and Woody
Long time no talk to

time to keep some of the cash and spend it on some other beauties...
after all, ''Diamonds Are A Girls Best Friend''....

Diamond Earrings are NICE. Thou you aren't likely to display them. Alas, the world is such today that it isn't very safe to wear them. Most likely they will be kept in a safe or safety deposit box. So - I will continue to enjoy looking at my solid collection and displays. Maybe it is not quite the same "thrill" but it is still a lot of pleasure to me. Would never give it up unless it was absolutely necessary.
Doesn't mean I disagree with not buying the new issues when they first apprear.. Each of us tries to get the best for less. And we should buy only what we like. Not just buying to make a profit. I am a collector, not a dealer. Anything I have for sale is a duplicate in order to upgrade my collection. Maybe some day it will be worth more - or maybe less. Whatever - matters not to me as long as I still love looking at the little treasures.
