HELLO TO EVERYONE!
I JUST WANTED TO LET YOU KNOW THAT I RECEIVED MY HARRODS SOLIDS TODAY. I ORDERED TWO OF EACH ONE.
THE HARRODS BUILDING IS NICE BUT I MUST SAY I FEEL IT WAS NOT OF THE QUALITY THAT I EXPECTED.
ONE OF THEM CAME WITH A STONE THAT HAD FALLEN OUT OF THE AWNING. THE OTHER HAD THE AWNING LAYING LOOSE IN THE BOX AND I HAD TO GLUE IT BACK ON. ALSO, ONE OF THE LUCITE BASES HAD A CHIP ON IT.
I AM TRYING TO DECIDE IF I WILL KEEP THEM OR SEND THEM BACK. I HATE TO RETURN THEM JUST BECAUSE OF THE HASSLE.
THE BEAR WAS CUTE.
THE VAN IS OUR FAVORITE, THE QUALITY IS GOOD.
CHUCK AND I HAVE DECIDED TO NOT BUY ANYMORE UNTIL WE SEE THEM IN PERSON. THE PRICES HAVE INCREASED SO MUCH AND THE QUALITY HAS DECLINED. WE DID ORDER THE SHOWGIRL AND THE CARDS FROM VEGAS BUT THAT IS IT!
ESTEE LAUDER’S CORPORATE POLICY SEEMS TO BE MORE INTERESTED IN MAKING MONEY BY SELLING AN INFERIOR QUALITY PRODUCT AND DESTOYING THE VALUE OF OUR COLLECTIONS BY SELLING HUGE LOTS OF SURPLUS PRODUCT AT “WAREHOUSE SALES”.
OUR COLLECTIONS ARE AT RISK OF DECREASING IN VALUE IF THIS TREND IN CORPORATE POLICY CONTINUES.
IF YOU THINK THIS IS “HYSTERIA” JUST LOOK AT THE PRICES ON EBAY NOW.
FOLKS, THE PRICES ARE FALLING, NO DOUBT ABOUT IT. THOSE BULK SALES ARE GOING TO DESTROY THE VALUES OF THOSE OF US THAT PAID RETAIL.WE HAVE SPENT THOUSANDS$$$ ALSO AND FEEL ESTEE LAUDER HAS TURNED THEIR BACK ON THEIR “CORE” MARKET.
DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE AN OPINION ON THIS?
