Pix of the new 2003 solids!
Posted 22 May 2003 - 01:19 PM
First we were told that you could ONLY get the palm tree if you attended the convention, then it was they would be available at LV , then some didn't even get it at convention because the Rep. left before some people even got there. (it would have been nice if we had known when they were selling them).
Then that horrible presentation with no questions allowed. Not as advertised.
Half the solids collectors were not at this convention. Would love to hear from some of them on why they didn't attend. Are they also tired of the confusion.
If IPBA was mislead they need to step up to the
plate and say so.

And the whole collection is nice this year.

I am going tomorrow night or Saturday to see their new stock. They also asked me recommend items for June's order.
I cannot believe EL reps were so "cheeky" at the convention. And yes! That attitude is insulting to collectors!! (Now I'm beginning to feel Better!!)

We visited 3 different Cosmetic Stores on our trip and all 3 had the same rules but"followed" them differently.
One gave us all the imformation we needed over the phone, one would not, and the last one kind of told us what we wanted to know.
There is a 3 item limit or $300 limit. They will make an exception if you buy the ferris wheel or tent at $360.
When they were 40% off it was worth the hassle but at 20% plus tax it now is not unless they have a solid you can't get anywhere else.
People that want more than allowed just take all there friends in .

The reason for no ??? Cutie Pie was clueless Our recompense for suffering was a peek and the gorgeous Jay Strongwater solids, which was worth being "cute-ed" to the max. Plus, the part about Mrs. Lauder was interesting and I like the Nordstrom's solid flower pendant. I shouldn't be so mean she was very cute and nice. Enough from me.

Thanks for the information. Now that you've explained this, it helps me a lot. I have noticed the variation in the rules in the past. This is a new manager who seems eager to learn more about solids.
I will know more after this visit with her.
I really appreciate everyone's advise and comments.
More later and thank you!!

Yes it was the bird on the leave - only the red colour was missing. I had picked the picture up

I agree with several of the posts about the insult of giving $15000 worth of freebies to people who could buy and sell most of us on this site. (and not just individually either - most likely all of us put together!) Is that what we are paying for when we buy our solids? See Ann, I like a rant now and again too! But, it's not just Lauder who do that. Virgin Atlantic give Celebrities free trips to the US from London. I would love it to be given a free flight like that, just jump into bed on the plane and wake up in New York! Fantastic.
I just want to say that I had a great time in Florida and it was even better because I got to meet so many nice people (especially the ones from here).
It makes such a difference to actually see the solids as the pictures do not always give you a true feel for them. I have a huge list of must have's and really, really like's. I too will have to rob a bank or, God help me, work overtime!!!!!

When you have time please post your favorite solid that you saw.
We liked the fan the best. They all look different in person.

I would love to have them all, but it gets too expensive. Maybe I will have some luck in Las Vegas.
Who plans to attend the Las Vegas Convention? I think that it will be a treat with Jay Strongwater speaking at the dinner on Saturday.
Hope to see everyone there!!!
