    Hello Daisy,

    The boxed Harrods Van originally sold for £150 or £160, if I remember correctly or perhaps higher. Will try and check it out.

    So taking into account these were not a general release and therefore limited, to purchase one I would say anything upwards from the above figures (unless you are lucky enough to find one at a lesser price) with perfume and card etc. NOT the empty ones you see floating around on Ebay as these are probably rejects or copies …whatever.

    With the Vans you have to make sure that the wheels are O.K. There was a problem with the rubber which covers the wheels and I had to send one of these solids back to Estee Lauder as the rubber would not stay fixed to the actual wheel.
    It is a nice solid.

    Hope this helps.

    Ah . . . I should have asked this question before I bought my first one !!

    This was my first ebay buy . . . and boy was I green ! <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    However, it made someone else's day and that person is/was a member of this site.

    Philosophically, I think things are only worth how much one wants to pay for them.

    Just make sure you buy what you love, then you won't be sorry what you paid! When I started buying solids 3 yrs ago, alot of members were bitter about their collections being devalued by the warehouse sales. Since I started I have bought hundreds of solids. I have bought solids from Micky at Manhasset EL store. from members on the site, and on Ebay. The Harrods' are the only ones that hold their value, and only ones I pay full price for. If you're patient, all new releases, MIBB will eventually show up on Ebay ( or on this site ) and you can save $$$ I know it's hard when you're starting out and want everything all at once ( or at least I did ) I also lucked out and met 2 people on this site who were selling their personal collections off, so you can grab some great solids that way. Also, I don't buy hoping solids are going to appreciate in value. The ones that do are few and far between. If I have something that does grow in value, that's great, but not my resson for buying. I LOVE walking by my curio cabinet everyday and looking at all my treasures!

    Thanks, what would us novices do without this kind of information?  It never occured to me to check out wheels!!
