Nothing wrong with that at all- I mean no one has $$ to just throw around. There is also nothing wrong with getting the solids when they come out also. I also think there is nothing wrong with collectors who buy than resell, I say more power to you. It's all just a personal choice so if people don't post and express their opinions about these matters than we don't know what everyone else is thinking… I do get quite a few emails telling me “I should say this or shouldn't say that”… like I said it's just my opinion and right now I don't feel the current solids will retain their values over the next couple of years with so many of them being produced. Could I be wrong? Yes, of course but at the moment I will risk it or even change my mind (perhaps we will be given some insight on the # of solids produced this year by EL at the LV convention- wishful thinking but who knows) but right now my focus is on getting the older solids I don't have and yup, if I come across a killer deal I will go for it!

All collectors have different approaches- some have to have the box, some have to have two of every solid, some don't care either way. Of course I love having a MIB solid (solid, label, perfume, gold box, price tag and outer white box) I can go either way. What ever floats your boat! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

Utimately I would like to see limited production runs so the solids sell out of the stores and therefore there is no need for them (the solids) to make their way to the warehouse sales or the CCS. I would rather pay full retail price and like I said before have them sell through. Until that happens I will wait for them on eBAy.


I have purchased from this seller before and yes, they have all been in perfect condition- with perfume and label just not with the original box. Enjoy- you can't beat that price either, you saved $270!
