HAS ANYONE HEARD ABOUT WHEN THE "SHOWGIRL" IS TO BE RELEASED?
WHAT HAPPENED TO IT?
THANKS AND WARM REGARDS,

I just spoke to the manager again for clarification. She said it was definitely a solid. It was listed as "The Falcon", but could have been a misprint, i.e. "Flacon". It was a $650.00 item that they would sell for $520. There were eight of them available.
I suppose the question now for your expertise is ....would you order this piece for your store?
This is a new location for a Cosmetics Company and they are eager for any advise that can be provided. They admit that they know nothing about EL Solids, thus they have not ordered much. They have customers coming in frequently who collect and would be happy to order if they just knew WHAT to order.
I continue to be amazed and grateful with all that I learn from each of you!!

Can you ask her how she knows it is a solid?
Maybe she is reading it wrong . Like maybe the solid part is discribing the glass.
I would find it odd that the Cosmetic Store would have a solid that no one has ever heard of.
That price range fits the Lt.Ed. Beautiful Flacon(bottle) that did not sell well in the retail stores and most of the Cosmetic Stores stuff are just that.
Things that did not sell well , overproduced stuff, and old stuff.
Have never known them to sell new stuff.
That price ($650 retail)for a solid doesn't match anything that we know of. Having 8 doesn't fit as a prototype .
We would not pay that much for a unknown.
Well, maybe we wouldn't.

The last we heard Harrods was going to have it for Christmas sales. But who knows.
We will be sure to ask the EL "person" at convention.

as I said before I don't know anything about the solid perfume mentionned. What I personally don't understand is that some of you are discussing about a "FLACON" even though mimi writes "FALCON" which for me is a bird.
About the plain golden ones. As far as I remember they both were $ 2500.00. The golden millenium 2000, was limited to 60 pieces (I have 4/60) and the beautiful blossom 2001, was limited to 125 pieces (I have 11/125).
The crystal Beautiful bottle was issued in autumn 2000 and was $ 650.00. If anyone needs it, I have an extra one.

Anything is possible and there may be a bird (falcon) but we don't know of one.
And to have 8 avaliable we(or someone) surely would have known about it.

Long time no hear! I am also awaiting word on the Showgirl. Now they are having it at Harrods will be comparing the price to that of the States. I have ordered the Showgirl and Palm Tree through Micky ages ago!
Will check tomorrow with EL Harrods as to when they will be expecting their quota. Will keep you in the picture. I believe the Strongwater solids will be arriving in October, but I will have to check.
Meanwhile I have just booked to leave here on the 7th for Florida and hope to look in at the Convention on the Saturday.
Have a spare Harrods Van if anyone is interested. It should have gone to Australia but broke down en route!
So now I have an extra one.
Best wishes to you all,
Will check out the Falcon this end! Could be a bird, could be a flacon. Either or
Just a question of where the 'l' goes to determine which!

We have been hard at work on some new displays that we hope everyone will enjoy viewing in the exhibit section.
For those of you that didn't get to attend we will post the photos after the convention.

The C.C. Co. will call their corporate office and get as accurate description as is possible.
They May or MAY NOT order....I wish they would, after all the kind attention and research you experts have done....
I would like to see the piece myself so that I can report to all of you!! I have bragged so about you and our group to this C.C. store. Jessica and Judy (the Mgrs) are in "awe" of the knowlege!! Oh well it's all true and you are just wonderful!

Haven't heard anything on our mystery. I will call this week to see if anyone has called corporate for a detailed description.
As soon as I have news I will post it. I am really curious about this!!
More later....Best to you!

There is a small El Falcon on ebay.

A falcon is sort of an ominous looking bird to use as a solid I'd think!

And what could be worse than a girl in a mini skirt riding a horse. As a former horse trainer that was scary to me.

I think the correct ebay listing # for the EL Flacon is 2173847966. Very interesting.
Have a nice day!
