I just saw and purchased the Saks rabbit, birds, teapot and pitcher. They are phenomenal! Well done with nice detail and enough tasteful bling.  The EL manager told me EL reduced its production of solids this year since sales were down the past two years because of the blah designs. She only had 2-3 of each and no assurance of getting more. (Do I believe this? Do pigs fly? If they start to sell out I'm sure EL will bump up production. THis could also be a line of !?^@! they are telling their store reps to encourage early buyers .)

This Thursday is gift day at Saks, so I reserved them.

Anyway, I am pleased and blown away by Jay Strongwater this year —  and now much poorer.  <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />



I was given a similar story when I reserved mine from Saks (South Coast Plaza, California). I was told that she had received “only” 4 of the strawberry compacts and was doling them out to those that had reserved the entire collection. She did not know what to do about the remaining pre-order customers, and did not know when/if Saks would be getting more. Anyway your post struck a similar note with me. <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />
