Were you able to repair the solids? Been thinking about you.
You will never believe what happened.
I used the hair dryer to remove the labels and did so successfully for both. The labels were dutifully sitting on the counter top waiting to be put on the proper compact bottoms when I inadvertently turned the hair dryer in their direction and blew one label down the drain.
I tried everything I could think of to retreive that one label but never saw it again. However, the other label did get put onto the proper compact and looks as good as new.
I'm sorry to say that the experience with the ebay vendor that I purchased these compacts from has truly spoiled my feelings for collecting. I never posted feedback because of the retaliatory feedback I would receive (in every email she would comment how much trouble I was causing). The seller offered to gladly refund my money if I returned the items in "same" condition they were in when sent. How does that work - when the seller denies the items were damaged or altered before shipping? I sent photos to the seller showing the damage and alterations and she denied that the compacts were in that condition when shipped. She suggested postal tampering, etc. Oh please!
So had I returned them, the seller would now have my money and the compacts
And this ebay vendor has a 100% positive feedback. How many others have been hoodwinked by this vendor and not posted feedback because of retaliatory comments that would surely be given!
Anyway, I hope all is well with you and you are enjoying the California spring weather -- I love this time of year.
