Topics I've Started


25 March 2013 - 05:41 PM

Hi to all of you. Every so often I like to go to the liveauctioneers.com site and see what they have going for perfume and jewelry. I just go to browse, its fun to look.

This is the site that has had the last two IPBA auctions on it. I don't know anything about this sale, its not my sale, I'm not involved, I just thought this was something this site would like to read about and check out.

In the search box at the top right hand of the page I put perfume. 152 items came up and one of the items is 43 Estee Lauder solds in a casplay case with the starting bid of $225. It seems to think these will sell between $300 and $500, I think. I wasn't sure from the description if there are 43 EL solids and some other solids or if 43 is the total.

The auction is April 20th, the gallery is Dumouchelles gallery in Detroit, MI. This gallery does not provide shipping, they do have some shippers listed. There is also a 23% buyers premium. In the picture I remember seeing a carousel, the mermaid, I think a coach and a peacock, the peach, --- a lot of pretty solids.

I know you have to register to use this site, I have registered in case I saw something I had to have in the IPBA auctions, but I've never bought because of the buyer's premium and not knowing what shipping would be.

Just something to pass on to you all, I don't know if this is someone's collection, they also have a ton of lalique bottles in the same sale.

Wow, I love the picture on the front of the site. I love pink anyway, so that makes it extra special along with the Breast Cancer Support message it sends.

Non El Solids On E-Bay

12 July 2012 - 12:06 PM

I had a few minutes today and I was just browsing e-bay, looking at the non-Estee solids on e-bay. I'm not collecting anything anymore, I'm to the downsizing stage of my life, but I do still love to look and enjoy all the beautiful objects available.

It was kind of shocking to see the gorgeous solids available that were completely out of my range when I was collecting. There was a carousel horse (Corday) and Dauphin, a set of in the box Concretas for a BIN price of $49, things I would have snapped up for those prices back in the day.

If any of you have a wish to pick up a wonderful older solid for a great price, you might take a look.
