    Don't feel bad ladies, we don't get events like that in PA either. I live near the Main Line ( like in the movie The Philadelphia Story ) but there's a reason these Main Liners have money. They don't spend it! You can go in some of these old Main Line mansions, and nothing has been touched since the 60's. It's like the land time forgot. And they don't spend it on clothing ( or perfume solids ) either. The Neimans in the area makes it's money from nouveau rich. That's why we didn't have one in this area til 2000. I'll be honest I don't see how the store stays in business as you rarely see many people shopping there.

    I do feel sorry for people who live like that and won't have a little spend now and again. Its nice to have a bit put away but if you don't spend it then your children will.

    My Mother used to say…..

    Its made round to go round, and its made flat to stack….. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    I like your mothers saying Margaret, I don't have the problem of not spending ( unfortunately ). Sometime I wish I did, but you can't take it with you. I guess it's a good thing I don't have kids, just 2 very spoiled Chow Chows that I spend my money on ( and solids )! Connie

    Hi Connie….. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    My dear Mother always had an answer for everything….. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    One day she was debating wether to buy something, and I said to her ” Mum you can't take it with you ” She just turned to me and said, ” Yes but it would be terrible that if I got there I found out I could “…….. <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />

    I never could win with her……. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Hi Margaret, the Coach solid looks just like the tag that comes on the Coach handbags. It's silver w/red printing. I love the handbags so I had to have the solid! I think it runs $40 US, but youcan usually buy on Ebay cheaper. The L.A.M.B solid is really a nice heavy piece. It is 2 interlocking LLs'. It has been high on Ebay, but if you just want to look at it they have it at Nordstrom.com where it is $42 US. I did buy the Sarah Jessica Parker Covet solid. Not very impressive, cheap plastic flower, but I like the perfume and will carry that one in my handbag. I think it's a good thing that new perfumes are putting solids out, for the longest time EL was the only game in town. Are there Harrods powders that are exclusives, and what do they look like?  I worked alot of overtime this past summer so I could afford the Harrods solids. I'm glad I did as I am thrilled with them. I now wish I had gotten the Holt Renfrew shopping bag…

    I got the L.A.M.B. solid – for once I actually found a solid perfume in a department store here in Stockholm <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ /> I totally agree with Chowlover2, it is really nice and I do like the simple design. Speaking of other makers solids I would like to mention Marc Jacobs Daisy ring – got that from eBay though. I really like it, it is heavy, well made and so FUN! I have seen auctions for a ring made by Thierry Mugler Angel too. I am not so sure about that one but I think it is so great that one is not strictly left with EL solids anymore <img src='style_emoticons//wink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’wink.gif’ />

    I will have to check out the Marc jacobs daisy ring! I have only seen the Angel pendants, so I'll be on the hunt for that too. I saw a Missoni solid necklace on Ebay that I am smitten with at the present. I'm really glad there are other manufacturers putting out solids!

    I went to Nordstrom's tonight and acquired both the Marc Jacob's Daisy ring and the Missoni necklace. The necklace is VERY neat. There are two choices- the original sent adorned with red charms and the newer scent that has more blue/green beads and charms. It has weight so seems a lot more expensive ($50 us) than it is. If you want one, Nordstrom seems to have plenty. I am very smitten with the Daisy ring too. Now my only problem is deciding where to display them!!

    Hello EVERYONE <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ /> !!
    HAPPY NEW YEAR <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    Sorry it's been so long since I've posted….very busy end of the year and exhausting beginning….BUT I have not stopped hunting and catching great old solids. I did receive the Great Wall as a birthday present and today my husband came home with the beach chair – which I LOVE!! I'm not really buying a lot of the new solids….I still think most of them will end of on ebay for a lesser price but they really are pretty. I saw the Ice Cream Cone today and it's so cute.

    I hope everyone had a safe and healthy and happy new year and best of luck to everyone searching….

    Take care,

    A very happy new year to you.

    Missed your posts, nice to see you back. Congrats on the beach chair.

    Thanks Margaret <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
    How's Merry Ole? It's FREEZING here <img src='style_emoticons//ph34r.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ph34r.gif’ />

    I went to Saks this morning and saw the Ice Cream Cone up close. I like it but I didn't buy it – it seems pricey to me. The sprinkles look cool though.

    I recently won the 1994 Golden Chains, White Linen, on Ebay. <img src='style_emoticons//smile.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’smile.gif’ />

    Happy Hunting EVERYONE!

    Hi Katita……. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />

    England is not so Merry. We have a lot of rain and we are WET, WET WET…… <img src='style_emoticons//sad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’sad.gif’ />
    Once again some areas are flooded, it seems to happen every year now.

    Well, we're in the same wet rut here too – we were suppose to get snow but all we got was rain and it's still raining <img src='style_emoticons//ohmy.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’ohmy.gif’ />
    We've flooded here before so rain makes me nervous.

    Stay DRY <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
