Am I remembering right that the same company that does the Strongwater solids for EL does some of the regular boxes for Strongwater???
Have noticed that Strongwater pieces are being sold on Ebay that are broken or missing things just like the EL solids were sold on Ebay. There have been a lot lately also of Strongwater pieces sold without their boxes. Does this sound familar???
Ebay item #
6155489881 , as an example.
Surely two different companys are not having “security “problems or are they??
There use to be an old saying” Never Pay Retail”.
I never knew what that meant until I started collecting EL. /mad.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’mad.gif’ />

I don't know what's going on there.
I don't think this is new. Two years ago I bought a Strongwater mirror compact on ebay. It must have been a “warehouse” piece. Both mirrors and a few stones on the salamander were missing + the colors were different than others sold at Neimans/Saks. Maybe it was a “sample”. <img src='style_emoticons//blink.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’blink.gif’ />LisaMemberFebruary 18, 2005 at 3:59 amPost count: 2664
Must also have something to do with CT. There is also another seller on ebay that sells mostly JS creations, the one I got from her was damaged and I sent it back. This seller is now also getting the solids.
I think there is a distrubition center in CT and the damaged items may be coming from there.bonbon9876MemberFebruary 18, 2005 at 8:29 amPost count: 15
Just wonder if they have the company name engraved on these junk pieces,
if so, there might be legal problem with them.

Just to end this thread I bought this lot and they weren't “junk” as in the CT sellers etc. They were from someone's collection. The mouse box didn't clasp tight, I have a red rose that I got from Vegas new that never shut and the other two had a tiny area where the color was changed and nt even noticable I had to really look for it.
I was thrilled, the frame is lovely and has my daughters photo in it and the mouse in his little Fez hat is so cute! I sat him next to Cincerella's Coach and the Princess Slipper.
