QUOTE(Gigi @ Oct 4 2005, 02:41 AM)
Question:  In the Harrods picture, off to the left I notice what looks like a powder compact with the English Union Jack on the lid of the compact. Am I correct and how many pounds does that one cost?

View Post



Hi Gigi

rolleyes.gif Yes - it is the English Union Jack! rolleyes.gif
I bought this powder compact as we were in England and it did cost 90.00!

Kind regards,

Liliane

HELLO GIGI..... smile.gif

IF YOU LIKE THE UNION JACK POWDER COMPACT TRY THE E.L. STORE IN LAS VEGAS, THEY HAD IT BEFORE HARRODS....ODD BUT TRUE.

THE PRICE THAT I BOUGHT IT AT WAS ABOUT $90 + TAX, IT WORKED OUT AT ABOUT 52.

REGARDS........Margaret

Thank you very much Liliane and Margaret for explaining about the Union Jack Powder Compact which is pictured on one of the photos in this topic. I really do appreciate it. I'm not an active powder compact collector, but let's just say I do have a "few" powder compacts in my collection along with the solids. This one looks good! smile.gif

Thanks again,
Gigi

smile.gif Yeah - nice photos - everyone looked different to what I had imagined! Very nice to see the 'real' you, everyone!!

In particular, Ken - you surprised me. You look taller than I guessed and have a face of a very nice man! (I'll have to ask the others to validate this!) laugh.gif

What was it like travelling with all those women? cool.gif
