    Hello!
    My daughter saved up her allowance and bought me the July angel of the month powder compact when she was younger (maybe in 1997). I recently lost it – I think it was in a bag that I gave away to a charity organization. I think that I have found a replacement, but it is not in the original box and doesn't have the paperwork.

    While looking for this replacement, I became aware of the fact that each angel has a name and is a symbol for some “special” characteristics. I didn't save the original paperwork – I simply loved and used the compact because it was beautiful. I had no idea that these items were considered collectibles. I am hoping that someone out there could tell me the name of the July angel and its characteristics – just so that I know.

    P.S. Since my daughter is now a young adult, I'm looking to find the August angel for her birthday next month.
    Thanks!

    Hello Karen, I did not realise there was so much attached to these compacts. I have the Leo compact which is the August one. I was not aware there was an Angel Compact for August..

    No doubt another collector will have the one you are looking for. Are you living in the States or in Europe?

    Congratulations on your 1st Post!

    Thank you for responding! I live in the states. You have the compact from the zodiac series. I am familiar with that series, but do not own one. The angel compacts each had a different angel (actually looked more like a cherub) on the front, with several small crystals incorporated into each design. The latches were simulated birthstones for each month. The little paper that came with each one had the name & characteristics that I'm looking for.
    Thanks for your help!

    Hi Karen,
    I recently bought some powder compacts from Luscious11 after she had posted under the topic Solids for sale. She had all the Angel compacts for sale on the list she sent me. Perhaps you could look up her post and contact her in case she still has them.

    Thanks for all the great suggestions. I was the winning bidder on an August compact on ebay this evening. It is NIB with the card and the pouch. Through contacting some of the ebay sellers with other angel compacts, I've also been able to purchase the July compact.
    I have been able to find the information that I was looking for regarding the name and information about the July angel. While I don't have the card, the information itself is nice to know. I would be willing to buy the card if anyone has an extra.
    I found the compact database on the Swiss Lady's website and her compacts are beautiful!
    Thanks to all!
    Karen
