Hello to you all!

It's nice to hear your story of collecting. Glad you posted.
Firstly I am sorry for both your losses . . . hard to lose ones parents at any time.
Secondly, I believe EL called the bicycle a "Spirited Bike Ride", so maybe you will find a reference to that in the US.
I am happy for your finds, especially the Dragon, and I'm sure I or others on here could help you find more older solids that you are after.

The Imperial Princess sold for $660 today on Ebay. She went for more than I wanted to bid right now. I hope someone on the board got her!
Someone should be pleased with that price tag. They've got themselves a bargain.

I recently lost Mom who had come to live with us. I had started collecting when dad was in hospice in 1999 and started again in 2010 as mom was failing. I didn't realize it at the time but found it almost a sign. I recently was thrilled to get the Dragon and Chinese take out. I would love to replace my Weekend Artist and can find almost no Internet reference to it but here. Are there some that just disappeared into space? When I found the Parasol I was through the roof as that one was also very hard to find. I also found the ladies bicycle which I couldn't find a reference for in the USA I got it from a collector in Australia and I love it parked with my garden solids.
Hello to you all!
My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mom. It is so, so difficult, isn't it? Not something you ever "get over" but rather, in time, "get through". I lost both my parents in 2009 and started collecting EL solids as a distraction and creative outlet. My mom always used EL products but I don't remember her ever having any solids. She did have a little sample bottle of Pleasures EDP with her makeup at the time of her death and I sprayed some on and it has become my favorite fragrance. So, now I feel another bond with my mom through EL! If there is anything I can do to help you find a solid you're looking for please let me know. There are 2 outlet malls in my area and both have the EL Company Store in them, too.
