    This is one I haven't bought yet, Dan looked at it when he was in London (Hi Jackie!!) but got me the Marlin instead which my Mermaid loves. But I am seeing many of the showing up on Ebay all of the sudden – why the Peacock? I figured some of the new line would as they just didn't appeal to me at all and I have a good gut feeling most of the time – but the peacock is pretty

    Any ideas??

    Yes, I noticed that same thing too with the peacock. My thoughts are perhaps Lauder thought this would be one of the best sellers for 2003 and it just got way overproduced and now all the excess is on ebay because it was at the warehouse sales in NY and Canada.

    Yes, we can always tell when there has been a warehouse sale. <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />

    Hi Lori, Your story made me smile. Before your husband left UK he told me he had bought you the Dolphin. I racked my brains and wondered what solid he had found for you and checked with the stores. Only later I realised that he had meant to say the Marlin. Lori, I know this will make you smile now!

    Personally I have always loved the Peacock. I thought everyone else would too, so I bought one instead of waiting for the Ebay 'sale' . . . . silly me! <!–emo&<_<img src='style_emoticons//dry.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’dry.gif’ />

    I instantly fell in love with the peacock too when I saw it in a store here in Stockholm, and just as instantly I got heartbroken since it was reserved for some very special customer who had managed to reserve all the solids of that store. I do think it is a bit unprofessional of the SA to favorize one single customer that way. Anyway, it cost 325.00 here so when I got it from eBay for 170.00 my heart was soon repaired and any hard feelings towards the department store was forgotten. I still feel so happy about this that it doesn't bother me to see them go so cheap now.

    Karin,
