    I know I should stay away from ebay /ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />
    The solids I paid full price for are selling at “fire sale” prices. Not good /mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />
    Anyway, that's my tiny little rant /tongue.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’tongue.gif’ />

    Hi,
    KK I have to agree with you! I, too watch Ebay every once in awhile and have noticed that several carousels have been up for bid lately. It sorta makes me wonder if someone might know something that we don't……….like maybe another carousel coming out in the future causing the price of these older ones to drop! What do you guys think?

    NO I”m sure that when someone saw that they could get $1345 for the carosuel they decided that they needed the money more than the trinket. I know when I saw the price, I seriously thought about selling mine. I mean after all that is a house payment and a car payment(almost)…The magic dragon at $700 and the mermaid at $600 were also really tempting to sell. Those are my 3 fav's that I was holding on to, but now I'm seriously thinking about getting rid of mine. Also the slot machine at $700 if in great condition. I can always rebuy them several years from now, when I'm not trying to play catch up from the hurricane and my hospital stay. I will definately offer them here first to try to save the 15% fees I have to pay to ebay. And yes13- 15% is what my ebay fees work out to.

    Hey Gayla,
    That's an interesting thought about the carousel being re-issued just like
    the palace. Hmmmm……….

    Hey Kasi,
    If I could get $1345 for one of my solids you can bet I'd sell it in a NYC minute.
    Even half of that price. LOL! That's a lot of money for one little solid <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    But KK that is what one sold for a couple of months ago, the next one sold for about $1180 if I am remembering right. I'll see if I kept the auction number as I 'm sure it is so long ago it won't show up in a completed search, they only keep completeds for 2 weeks now.

    I found this one but not the one that sold 2 months ago, it's already gone off the site.

    I have been watching the Carousels too and agree with Kasi that nothing
    sinister is going on with people selling. As pointed out, for these prices,
    if you need some extra $$$$$$$$$$ then that might be a compelling
    factor.

    Would be awful if they re-issued the Carousel. I still think first releases
    would keep their top place and the reissues would come a poor second…

    Hi All again,
    Thanks for your comments! That is probably true…….that people just may need the money for summer vacation or something. I know I have sold some of my solids at below what I paid for them when I really needed some extra cash. I would like to replace them eventually! I just thought it was strange that I hadn't seen a carousel on Ebay for quite some time and then all the sudden there are 2 or 3 up for auction. I am curious to see if this trend continues and if so maybe it wouldn't be a bad idea to part with some of these treasured solids…….just in case. Of course I, too, would offer to all of my solid collector freinds on this site first!! Thanks again for your comments!

    KK I must have been away at the time. I was off the site for quite a while.

    Meanwhile, another Carousel going off. Maybe I will have a look in this time
    but I doubt it….. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    D&M, good luck with your HatBox…..

    Over to you <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />

    I HOPE THAT NONE OF OUR NEWER MEMBERS
    GET SUCKED IN WITH THE LATEST ADDITION ON EBAY.

    A JESTER PURPORTING TO BE ESTEE LAUDER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    ALSO, BE CAREFUL OF SECOND CHANCE OFFERS.
    HAVING EXPERIENCED SOMEONE TAKING MY IDENTITY TO
    SELL CARS ON EBAY (WHICH FORTUNATELY WAS CAUGHT IN TIME EVEN
    THOUGH IT WAS A 24 HOUR LISTING) ALWAYS CHECK ANY EBAY
    MESSAGES WHICH YOU MAY RECEIVE IN YOUR INBOX. GO INTO
    EBAY ITSELF AND CHECK YOUR MESSAGE THERE……AND IF THERE IS
    NO MESSAGE, FORWARD THE ONE IN YOUR INBOX TO SPOOF@EBAY.COM

    I THINK THAT IS THE CORRECT ADDRESS.

    BETTER SAFE THAN SORRY, AS IT IS ALOT OF WORRY AND WORK
    TO SORT IT OUT IF YOU MAKE A MISTAKE!

    I AM SURE ANOTHER MEMBER WILL BE ABLE TO EXPLAIN THIS IN
    MORE DETAIL……..SO IF YOU HAVE ANY QUESTIONS….JUST ASK!

    Hi everyone, I defer to your expertise in solid collecting, I've been offered a grapefruit wedge for sale. It's mint in both boxes, a nick in the perfume. What's a reasonable price? I've bought from him before and his solids are exquisite, he wants me to make an offer.
