However, I do believe the seller lives in Providence. What say, Lisa? Help me out here. Need to know if we're in agreement on the same seller.
Did I mention we're going on a little trip in July to Rhode Island? Always wanted to visit the summer mansions of the "old rich" from the 1920's and '30's. Rockefeller's, Vanderbilt's, etc....and possibly a side trip here and there....

The cases are made in RI and shipped to Canada for filling. Thats why so many are sold empty from RI , they didn't get shipped to Canada. From Canada then shipped to store receiving centers to be shipped to the stores . Thats why some stores get them before others and some stores wait to put them out when they have an event going on.
The Harrods solids are shipped to Harrods and I have to pay $30 to have it shipped back here.

The Harrod's shipping thing is another topic...will have to think about that one. Seems kind of ridiculous if they're going to be shipped back here anyway. Then again, look at all the solids that have to be shipped to Europe from stores here. Glad I don't work in their purchasing/shipping/receiving department. I'd just divide everything up evenly and send out the exact quantity to every store, regardless of what continent they're on!

My understanding is that Victoria Co. makes the Strongwater solid cases also.
Jay Strongwater only designs them just like Leiber and other famous folks and Victoria makes them .
Another good question to ask just to make sure.
But it makes sense since empty Strongwater solids were sold out of RI.

I was under the impression each company had their own private little manufacturing plant...sort of a "mom & pop" thing going on....duh...
You really have to sit me down and give me a lesson on these companies! I'm getting quite an education here! I guess "Ignorance (really) is bliss!"

I think there are two companys on Rhode Island one is Victoria and Co. and the other is for the Strongwaters. As you remember my Strongwater frog had a missing stone and I asked Victoria and Co. to help me out. What I got was a letter from Strongwater with the stones . Strongwater has a different adress than Victoria but both are on RI.

And will this be more collectable without the stones? If so, we can all have fun removing them can't we?!

Nice idea we create than some new ones again. Remember the mermaidkittys .
The Taj Mahal maybe with some red stones - or new idea we buy the mermaid body and replace the stones in the Taj Mahal . Uglyyyyyyyyy.

Michele - I can imagine you fighting for the solids in the big dumpsters!!

I'm actually looking for something in a light lavender for Dumpster Diving. What do you think?
Yes, it is too much information! My head's pounding!
