The walls of the room were lined with showcases displaying this year's and last year's solids.
The Bejewelled Bottle was displayed in its own little show case as were the Bejewelled Elephant and Lucky Dragon. The Parasol shared a display case with the Royal Lantern and the Royal Pekinese glowed in the light of the Lucky Lantern.
As cameras were not allowed I hope you have a very creative imagination trying to picture all this!
I was there 2 hours after the preview started and already the Lucky Dragon was enjoying very good sales! By the time I went back the second time, around 4 pm the Royal Parasol, Glistening Owl and Lucky Dragon were completely sold out. Looks like those who go tomorrow are in for a huge disappointment!
Amid the light snacks offered, guests were seated and allowed to examine and select the solids of their preference, while SAs hovered attentively nearby everwilling to "bring out another" for the discerning purchaser.
I was told that only between 15 to 18 pieces of each of the Oriental Collection were given to the store which held the Exclusive rights because fewer pieces were produced this year. But who really knows these days? But for Singapore, limited means just that because there are only 15 Lucky Dragons running around...
The rest of the solids will be distributed to the other stores after Monday Oct. 17th.
A free Solid compact was given for different amount of purchases made. Among the free gifts were "The Sphinx" "Party Cake" "Roller Coaster" and "Cupid's Garden"
As for me, I bought the Bejewelled Bottled and came away with a wealth of experience. And as promised, I was charmed and dazzled indeed!
