Hi Jacqueline and KK!
I just got on the site a little earlier today and found out about the "Imperial Princess." Looks like she is fairly reasonable compared to the last one.
If I win the Lottery tonight, I might just bid on it!

AH BUT girls she has a broken clasp....Not perfect at all so i think she will go very reasonable. Of course if you are good friends with Bob Conte, you could always ask him if she is repairable...But personally , if I had the money which I don't, I would buy her anyway , just to give the poor lady a home until I could afford a mint one.

For those of you who like bling I have posted Prince Charming( the old rhinestone froggie, not the new Jay strogwater one) to ebay along with a lot of the older solids. And since they have changed how the ebay stores show up in search now, I will be posting a lot of the non estee solids and also the older estee solids to my NEW EBAY store over the weekend. Or at least I hope too, it takes a lot of time to research the prices that they have sold for previously on ebay , but luckily I belong to terapeak, which lets me search ebay for the last 90 days, where y'all can only go back 2 weeks.

Also a word of warning, ebay stores are buy it now only's so if there is something you want, you better get it fore someone else does. The early bird gets the worm.


Kasi
Have a great day

Good morning Kasi biggrin.gif ,
I noticed the clasp, but I don't think that will drop the price. Thank goodness the "Princess" is not my "thang" or I would be right in there. biggrin.gif biggrin.gif Now, the princess phone is another story tongue.gif
The very best to new owner. I know they will be on "cloud 9" laugh.gif laugh.gif

Hi Everyone and Jacqueline, KK, Kasi, biggrin.gif

I looked at the "Imperial Princess" this morning looks alittle high for my blood, ohmy.gif besides I am back into dollhouses and roomboxes making and buying, so solids
will be on hold for awhile. Hubby doesn't make that good of money and no raise
insight for me, accept up and off my chair. ohmy.gif

Hi all !

Call me silly or stupid but due to the damaged clasp I do not bid on the Imperial Princess.
In my opinion, if paying such a high price - like most of you I do not have a "money tree" either - it should not be damaged at all, no box or no pouch is okay but not damaged.

Well, my five cent blink.gif

Hi Astrid. I agree with you. If I didn't already have one, I wouldn't bid on a broken one. I never bid on damaged pieces if I can help it - I have been burned by an Ebay seller who "forgot to mention" the damage but that's another story dry.gif - I eventually bought the piece in good condition. smile.gif

Good luck to all of you who are bidding. biggrin.gif

Hi Pam..... smile.gif

I'm back to the dolls house as well....all is not going so well with it at the moment.... mad.gif just ruined my kitchen worktops, painted a large piece, paint got on the worktop and I thought it would come off with white spirit and its not! so I had to scrub and scrub to remove it.....bad idea.... ohmy.gif Good job that we live in an old house ( the now scratched worktops have sort of blended in ) but will have to replace them in the future.

Back to the Imperial Princess. Don't know if I dare say this but..... I DON'T LIKE HER no bling bling.... laugh.gif Oh well, I never did have very good taste.

Regards..... Margaret

Margaret, of course you should "dare say this" - if that's what you feel - I think there are a lot of people who aren't fond of her, or any of the ivories. rolleyes.gif smile.gif You should feel free to say whatever you want. biggrin.gif I like the ivories but so what - the bigger picture is

WE ALL LOVE SOLIDS biggrin.gif

One big solid-lovin' family - yep - that's what we are tongue.gif



Have fun laugh.gif Katita

Hi Margaret,
I know what you mean the IP is my least favorite. I just can't figure out why she's the most expensive and sought after. But, it's truly fun to watch the bidding when she comes up.
I would pass on a damaged solid, too. For some reason the IP is so popular it doesn't seem to make a difference.

Katita, I love your take on life biggrin.gif biggrin.gif biggrin.gif

A wonderful and relaxing weekend to ALL!
It looks like snow here ohmy.gif blink.gif but who knows it will probably blow right passed.
