Yep, some customers did get the barn and flower cart solids.

Here is my question:

Why does this happen every year? Every year there is to be a "special" solid for the conventions and as always they get out before hand. Why doesn't EL just wait until after the convention to ship them out to the stores, seems easy enough to me. I think EL corporate does this to creates a "hype" so everyone thinks it is sooooo limited and will be hard to find. As I have learned that is NEVER the case as there will be plenty in NY, Vegas and whatever "exclusive" store they will end up in and most likely the outlets too.

Has the barn been on ebay?? mad.gif

Have now learned that the barn and flower cart come with cards and EL is claiming that the flower cart is limited to 500 pieces and the red barn 600 pieces.

Both solids in my opinion are very cute and more important reasonably priced!

I do have photos but in repsect will wait until after the Vegas convention to post them (or until they show up on ebay) huh.gif

Sandra,


My respect is directed toward Roselyn Gerson and the compact collectors convention.

I don't have any faith in EL as in my opinion they treat us collectors as we are always doing something wrong instead of working with us. First this year all of a sudden they are so hush, hush about the new solids- no information what so ever (not that I ever got any) no early release about the solids, photos, etc.. then the Mothers day solids are shipped out to some of the stores and sold early, not fair to the convention goers the convention throwers, or the EL sales people. Lastly EL continues to hold warehouse sales and does nothing about sellers who sell piece of s&%t solids on ebay but they will call collectors and tell them they can no longer sell to them. Respect- NO

Collected my Flower Cart on Saturday. It is not as large as I thought it would be from the photographs or as colourful, but it is growing on me. Funny thing was, it tried to run away as I placed it on something that had a slight tilt. The wheel at the front moves and the cart followed! Caught it in time! rolleyes.gif
