#27402 Question On Forum Etiquette

Posted by Serendipity on 09 November 2011 - 06:20 AM in Help Desk

Hi there, I have heard from a local member already and will mail her the tix (invitations). Each sale results in a few new or different compacts. I have been very, very lucky lately! I'm in the process of making a new list and will start a post. I have been granted permission to sell on the site and may!



#27383 Question On Forum Etiquette

I have extra passes for the sale on the 26th of November in Melville, NY. Where would be the best place to offer this up to the forum and would this be OK?

Let's see... 4 sales a year, guesstimate that 400 people buy 6 solids at each = 9,600 warehouse solids :ph34r:

Sorry for taking so long - family stuff has kept me mostly off the web.

I have tickets for the 26th of November in Melville, NY which is on Long Island. I'll start another post so that anyone who is in the area can go!

I get tix four times a year, lately they have had a sale every Saturday.

New compacts abound ... some with bottom tags intact (woo hoo!!!!). I now have the nesting dolls, romantic bouquet, antique train, jeweled butterfly and more ... my list is getting longer and longer!



#27191 What'S Happening On Ebay?

Posted by Serendipity on 11 June 2011 - 07:19 AM in General Lauder Solids Talk

I was told several years ago by an employee of a Cosmetics Company Store that the manager of each store chooses which compacts they want to order for their store. I don't know if it's changed.

Wow ! Looks like you have quite a collection there.

Congrats on "turning into" a collector. They are pretty contagious, aren't they? :)


Contagious is an understatement! They are just so darn beautiful.

WOW! I can't get over how far back they have empty solids, I thought mostly from the last few years, but you have solids that go back much further than that.I live in southeastern PA, about 2 hrs from NYC, I wish I could go!


Lately, they have had some of the earlier compacts. Never later than 2009 though it seems.

The compacts are returned to them empty from Macy's. I imagine they hold on to them for a while. When they put them out, it is on a small 2 X 2 foot table from small boxes that look aged. You never know what they have when!

What else do they have at the warehouse sales other than solids? Do they have perfumes and skin products?


They have all sorts of stuff! Perfumes, skin care, makeup, (empty) solids of course, lucidity compacts (also empty) from the following brands: Estee Lauder, Clinique, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Aramus, Michael Kors, Ojon ... I'm probably missing a few!

I do not have many extras to the June 18th sale as my sister got these for me. I will post here when I do have enough to go around - glad to send them out to anyone who wants to go. I receive 75 invitations four times a year. I work at Stony Brook University for the College of Arts & Sciences ... I do the budget (yikes!).

Thanks for listing these. There are a few there I'd like to get my hands on one day! Some I'd even forgotten about!

You're a champ! :)


They had some great empties I haven't seen before that I was able to get ... Lucky Coin 1998, Scorpio 1997, Matador 2002. I also added 3 others to my collection that I had seen before. There is a limit of 6 per person. Its so funny that I started out selling them on ebay and got hooked on collecting them! I may even buy some of the full ones at the outlet store.

I can't sell here until I get 100 posts up ... working on it! I'll email the site management and ask for how I can just provide a pick up service!



#27168 Solids @ The Stores ...

Posted by Serendipity on 04 June 2011 - 11:09 AM in General Lauder Solids Talk

I promised on another post to list the compacts I found at the "Cosmetics Company Store" and the warehouse Company store. There a store attached to the warehouse for the employees that they allow warehouse sale attendees to go into. The compacts I list here are all new, full, with box, etc. I have not yet purchased any and may be able to pick up .... however I do not yet have enough posts to sell on this site. I would not wish to violate the rules!

I'm curious if the other "Cosmetics Company Store" sites in the outlet shops have different compacts?

The prices I list are their retail before tax.

The Cosmetics Company Store, Riverhead, NY:

Rock Lobster $200
Beach Treasures $200
Magical Leaf (Dragonfly on Leaf) $200
Fantasy Fish $200

Candycane $68
Dancing Bears $68
Passementerie Bow $68
Radiant Sunflower $68
Holiday Treat $68 (Gingerbread man)
Lollipop Twist $68
Glimmering Take out $68

From the employee store, Hauppauge, NY:

Holiday Stocking $240
Holiday Star $68
Imperial Horse $260
Ocean Liner $240
Cuddly Bunnies $260
Golden Rickshaw $240
Jeweled Jukebox $227
Blue Ribbon Bulldog $260

I will return to the warehouse on the 18th and I have a few extra tickets if anyone is in the Long Island area!



#27166 What'S Happening On Ebay?

Posted by Serendipity on 03 June 2011 - 06:32 AM in General Lauder Solids Talk

Fantastic !!

Let me know what they have in boxes please !! :)



Will do! I may also head out to the Tanger Outlets where I have seen solids at "The Cosmetics Company Store" which is Estee's outlet. I wonder if they sell different compacts in the different outlet locations?



#27164 What'S Happening On Ebay?

Posted by Serendipity on 02 June 2011 - 03:59 PM in General Lauder Solids Talk

Hello...I stopped collecing a couple of years ago because of all of the warehouse nonsense, so I havent even looked at EBAY for a very long time..until recently..what is going on with all of the empty without boxes compacts for sale? Can anyone enlighten me?



Yes, it is all of us warehouse crazies. I started out selling them and now collect however I cannot bring myself to pay the price of those with boxes and perfume. The warehouse in Long Island is closing and they have had some very nice compacts! I'm going again Saturday. They also allow you to go into the Company store which carries the boxed compacts. I'll scout out what they have on Saturday and post - I'd be happy to pick some up if anyone needs them .... the next time I go will be the 18th of June.

The warehouse will move to Melville, NY after that. Not sure when the next "sale" will be.

Also, if anyone would like passes I may be able to drum some up!
