    Due to constraints of time and money, we will be selling SolidPerfume.com. We have had an offer for the domain name from a web traffic business. They do not intend to continue it as a collector's site, just a source of advertising traffic. (If they do buy it, they will not get any of your names or information, rest assured.)

    BUT, if anyone here is interested in buying the site to continue to run it, please let me know. We would much rather sell it to one of the members and see it continue rather than just becoming a page of ads. Match the existing offer and it's yours.

    We have told them we will give them an answer by the end of July so if anyone is interested, let me know fairly soon. If not, it has been a great experience and we really enjoyed it over the years!

    How very sad for all of us members. I want you guys to know this site was AMAZING for me.
    I've met so many wonderful people because of you. If this site goes, I know we will all miss it very much.

    Thank you Lisa and Jack for a wonderful experience and the BEST to you both.

    PS – how much for the site? What is the price we need to match?

    I so appreciate what you two have done for the collectors, the site will be sorely missed if we lose it. I check it frequently for updates and reference…

    It would be great to form a group to buy and manage the site, but aside from the $$$, it's the effort to keep it up and running. I know that is a lot of time and work!

    We collectors will have to band together to find another source of communication if we lose this wonderful site.

    THANK YOU JACK AND LISA!!

    OH NO. I am so sad, but I understand. Hey Jack, if there were a fee to join, and a yearly fee as well, could we talk you into staying? Just a thought.

    Great idea.
    I would be willing to pay an initiation or yearly fee.
    Perhaps the fee will enable the owners of the site to keep it going.

    Once again I am late with my post here. But I ditto with what everyone has been saying and every single post so far.
    Of course Lisa and Jack you do with what you feel is best for you. Its helpful to know you are “kicking around all the possible options.” I have posted a long time ago on this board I would be willing to pay a fee as well. With my location here in the States, I live in both Wyoming and Montana and those are very rural locations. With this site I do not feel alone in my admiration, interest and love of collecting solids.
    There are very nice people here on the board. I'd hate to loose contact with you and your friendship not to mention your vast knowledge of solids. Its always amazing to me with all of us being here and sharing, we can and do know more about these little gems than the average EL sales associate in a retail store! <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ />
    What I'm concerned about if we all contributed money to this site to keep it going, the hard part would be who would run it, who would keep it up to date? Tough questions to answer.
    What I do know is that if this site is sold to the party that Jack has said which is full of advertisements, I will cancel my membership to this board before the new ownership takes over. No hard feelings in any way. However, I do have hope at this point in time I will not have to do that.
    Everyone, have a nice summer weekend and yes, I'll be checking in daily to view your comments,

    Don't worry Gigi, Jack said they will not be getting our names & information if they do have to sell to an advertising place. I think they just want the name of the site anyway.

    I'd pay a fee to keep it going too <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />

    Dear Jack And Lisa

    Thanks for the many years of enjoyment you have given us.

    We also would be willing to pay a fee.

    Good luck in what ever you decide. We will miss you.

    Well put, Gigi. I think you said, in an elegant way, what we are all thinking.

    If we pay a fee, does that mean no visitors can “come in”? That worries me because we get members who found us as a visitor. There must be a logical solution. Anyone?
