Congratulations! I have that one on next years list. A friend is bringing it to me from the UK. I have to wait for her... is she worth the wait in person??

Hi Jennifer:

Yes, I think she's worth the wait. She was one of the compacts I wanted the most and I'm very happy to meet her! :P

Hi Shannon,
A warm welcome from the South. Before you, I was the "newest" member I think to this great group (not sure what we are called?). I started collecting in March this year and I have about 150 solids now! I started with collecting everything as I wanted to build up a collection quickly but soon found it's not much fun to collect empty ones! I then started to replace them with the ones with perfume and boxes and now only buy compacts which have at least perfume in them even without boxes. The only exceptions might be the really old and hard to find ones that I really want.

It's definitely addictive as I have to go on eBay every day for a few times to make sure I haven't "missed" anything :) My husband is getting a bit annoyed too with my newfound hobby as I promised I will only buy so many to fill up the antique display cabinet that he bought for me for the solids but now I'm running out of space and am trying to persuade him that WE need another one ;)

Again, very happy that you join us and good luck with your collection!

Alice


Hi Alice:

Wow! You started this past March and you have 150 compacts?? That's amazing. I'd love to do that, but food and shelter must come *before* compacts! I'm not doing too badly, I started two weeks ago and have a whopping 13 so far. Of course, I've left my hubby completely out of the loop on this. I'm pretty sure he will be none too pleased about my latest obsession.

Thanks so much for the nice welcome. :)

I think you should buy from who you are comfortable with, and also for the price you are comfortable with. ;)

This is what will be remembered. You don't want to get ripped off, and you don't want to buy from people who don't care about what you buy (ie, buy from people who care about what they sell to you). B)


Sandra:

I sent you a private message. I *thought* I had done this 3 days ago, but I think I sent the message to another member. Doh!

In Topic: I'M Officially Addicted!

Welcome Shannon! I've been collecting solid perfumes for 5 years now and have over 500 now. So yes, it is very addictive. Be sure to check out the past topics on the forums on this site. It will help you not make some mistakes with collecting solids. I have seen the new EL Celesial solids on the Harrods website and they are fabulous.

The Imperial Princess is the most wanted with the EL solids (well at least so far that is my most wanted!)

I am out of Jax, FL.

I started collecting solid perfumes after my grandfather died and my grandmother gave me these two tiny gold boxes...on researching them, I found out they were solid perfumes and that's how it got started. On a sad note, my grandmother who began my solid perfume collection bug, passed away last week. I just came in on the train this morning from Maryland for the service. It is the sad end of a wonderful era with my grandparents. I am thankful for all the lessons in life she showed me, especially the love of collecting solid perfumes!!

Just wanted to say thanks so much everyone for the warm welcome. I'm really, really excited to get started on my collection. Woo hoo! :0)

I can get you maybe the:

Beachchair
Great wall
Ocean Liner
Opra house
Roller coaster

All MIB... just email me and let me know


I have a question. I have had more than one member tell me they have the same compact for sale. Is it bad form to find out who has the best price and purchase from that seller, or should I purchase from the individual who notified me first?
