And how come it seems that everyone is after the same ones I want??

Oh well, maybe in May at the IPBA eh?
On the subject of computers poor Jacky is now having problems and may need a new one. Perhaps we overworked them.

(I won't be expecting a comeback in a hurry, Jacky !! I do miss the banter with you . . . . chuck that dinasaur of a laptop out and get an iMac!!)

I recently bought the silver cowboy hat and have a dragon on layaway. I am sure that I paid too much for the pieces, but I really like them. I just hope that the sellers are scrupulous. Both sell on a site called Ruby Lane and I emailed the customer service person and was assured that sellers are scrupulous.
I know that one of those sellers also lists perfume solids on ebay--did not see any problems listed in the comments section, so hopefully, I won't get taken. (Crossing my fingers).
I was lucky to get all pieces except for the cowboy hat and dragon at the issue price. I even acquired the unicorn at a dicounted price. I live in Orange, CA. There is an Off 5th store near to me where they sell Sak's 5th Ave items for 30-50% off retail. The Estee Lauder counter there has a lot of the perfume compacts and powder compacts for incredible prices--my unicorn was $60. When I shared this information with the Estee Lauder people in Nordstrom's Sak's and in Las Vegas, I was told that these compacts can be sold at such a discount because they are no longer in production.
Any opinions on this?
Thanks and I'm glad that I found this board.

Good on you for being so honest and open with what you paid and where you got it from . . . I'm sure some members (like myself) wish we lived near discount stores etc just to get a few bargains and didn't have to rely on Ebay to get things from.
This IS a fantastic site to be on - you'll find wonderful people here to share information with . . . welcome to "the club".

Welcome. Looks like you are off to a good start.
If you will look under the tab at the top marked Store Locations you will find( scroll down)the CC stores in Cal. that sell solids at a discount.
When dealing with Ebay you just have to ask questions , read feedbacks and keep your fingers crossed.

I know a seller from Ruby Lane from Calif. She is fine to deal with. There is one in Florida and from what I know she also is ok to deal with. So if you bought from either of them I think you can rest easy.

Hi Lisa. Thank you! I've had a delightful first day of reading posts, replying to posts and getting to know some of the members of the chat board.
I fell in love with the Estee Lauder solids ( I also have a few of the powder compacts) when I bought Pegasus a few years ago at Macy's. Then I discovered the Estee Lauder store in the Caesar's Palace Forum shops and it is now a must visit place everytime I go to Vegas.
I have a little shelf that now holds 6 of the solids. I have two more coming--I hope that they will all fit on that little shelf. If not, then I'll need another shelf and more solids!

Welcome 2 cute, I guess you will have read a bit more by now and realise that your shelf will soon need to be replaced by 14 cabinets and twenty shelves!
Seriously, we all start off with one and end up with a collection which costs a fortune but we need just one more - the next one!

Then, I had to get the silver cowboy hat because my husband is from Texas and a Dallas Cowboy fan. LOL
The others I just acquired by accident--I liked them so I bought them.
YUP! I'm hooked. Hmmmmmmm...maybe I should start looking for another shelf.

There now, what's to worry about? Read the buyers feedback . . . is that making you nervous??
