Hi all,
I have not been on this site for some time- was curious about upcoming shows and events- I guess nobody has been on this site as the newest show coming up was in 2004? So I guess I will have to wing it for the next show
Hope all are well and Happy Valentines day

Mark

Hello Mark, Am sure someone will make a post if you ask for the information.

I am the other side of the pond so to speak, so am not of any help! Yell out loud enough and everyone will come to your help, am sure smile.gif

Thanks for the Valentine wishes. Can you include some roses too!!!!! smile.gif

Hi everyone. it's been a while since I have posted. It's been a L-O-N-G winter here in Chicago.....not much excitement about solids with all the cold and snow. As for shows, here are the two this year:

International Perfume Bottle Convention, Albuquerque, NM April 30 - May 3 2009

Compact Collectors Convention, Chicago, Il July 10 - 12, 2009

I will in Albuquerque but may not be in Chicago for the compact convention.

Hi Debbie,
I suppose a lot of collectors aren't buying at the moment so they aren't posting.

Yup... so sorry guys... EL just ruined the collecting part for me.....

Sorry about the broken parts on the site also... just don't have the time or $$ to put into fixing right now..... I still makes me very sad and I am sorry I have let everyone down.

If someone wants to send me a list of new solids I will update the database.... since I stopped buying none of the sales associates send me any info what so ever

Yes...me too as I totally agree with what Margaret and Don and Margaret have said.

As I have posted long ago on the board here, I am grateful that you Lisa and Jack created this web site in the first place for us collectors to come to and share whatever information we have. And you two still have this site up and going. I thank you for this.

Given this...my husband was in New York City about a week ago and went into the Saks Fifth Avenue store (the mother store) on Fifth Avenue. He said he saw many of the 2008 Fall/Holiday solids still available for sale as well as the older Spring Chase Lounger solid for sale. (Sorry can't remember off the top of my head and I'm not at my desk to look up when that Lounger was released but it had to have been within the last 2-3 years.) Yes Lisa, EL has changed in more ways than one regarding their solids.

Thanks for the above posts folks. Everyone here I hope you have a nice day.

Gigi

Ditto for me, Lisa. I miss the chatting on the website but EL has ruined it for most of us. I hope, though, you keep the site going. Let us know if you want us to chip in for the cost. Someday EL may see the light...

P.S. I got a call from Saks the other day that they had two new solids and would only be receiving one of each. Did I want one? Ha ha...No!

Hi All!
It's been a long time since I made a post also. I feel like Lisa and have stopped collecting them. I didn't purchasing any of the 2008 solids..........even though I really wanted the Prancing Pony.........and thought long and hard about purchasing it from SAKS, but just couldn't do it after seeing them go for so much less on Ebay. So I thought I would just wait it out and hopefully find it for half price! I got lucky and got it for under half price with free shipping! I was so excited!! It is a lovely piece, but was much smaller than I had anticipated! Of course I still kept it and am very happy I didn't purchase it for the retail price. Too bad I have a whole collection of solids that I did pay retail for that are worth very little now!
I am still curious to see the 2009 solids if anyone has any pics yet.........maybe I can luck out again!

Sorry! Long Time since I have posted also.
Hi, Lisa, Vegas Lady, Jackie, and KK and all
Solid Perfume Friends.
I haven't purchased any solids in the last two years.
I have been sidetracked so-to-speak as they say.
I found my daughter after 40 years.
The internet consumed alot of my time seaching
and finally found her through the local library.
So my time is comsumed by my daughter and granddaughter.
Take Care all and I'll try to drop by more often.
Thanks for this wonderful site Lisa and Jack.
Please do not let it go.
Love,
Queenie,
Pam
