    I recently lost Mom who had come to live with us. I had started collecting when dad was in hospice in 1999 and started again in 2010 as mom was failing. I didn't realize it at the time but found it almost a sign. I recently was thrilled to get the Dragon and Chinese take out. I would love to replace my Weekend Artist and can find almost no Internet reference to it but here. Are there some that just disappeared into space? When I found the Parasol I was through the roof as that one was also very hard to find. I also found the ladies bicycle which I couldn't find a reference for in the USA I got it from a collector in Australia and I love it parked with my garden solids.

    Hello to you all! 🙂

    Hi Lori !

    It's nice to hear your story of collecting. Glad you posted. 😉

    Firstly I am sorry for both your losses . . . hard to lose ones parents at any time. 🙁

    Secondly, I believe EL called the bicycle a “Spirited Bike Ride”, so maybe you will find a reference to that in the US.

    I am happy for your finds, especially the Dragon, and I'm sure I or others on here could help you find more older solids that you are after.

    Take Care 😎

    I'm sorry for your loss too. I hope that the renewal of your collecting helps to offer you much joy! The dragon is such a fun compact. Now you can start up an Estee Chinese grouping… the Great Wall, Takeout, Dragons, Rickshaw … I bet that would be such a fun display! Hmmmm…. Maybe I need to start working on that myself! LOL! Glad to hear from you!

    The Imperial Princess sold for $660 today on Ebay. She went for more than I wanted to bid right now. I hope someone on the board got her!

    Someone should be pleased with that price tag. They've got themselves a bargain.

    Hello, Lori,

    My heartfelt condolences on the loss of your mom. It is so, so difficult, isn't it? Not something you ever “get over” but rather, in time, “get through”. I lost both my parents in 2009 and started collecting EL solids as a distraction and creative outlet. My mom always used EL products but I don't remember her ever having any solids. She did have a little sample bottle of Pleasures EDP with her makeup at the time of her death and I sprayed some on and it has become my favorite fragrance. So, now I feel another bond with my mom through EL! If there is anything I can do to help you find a solid you're looking for please let me know. There are 2 outlet malls in my area and both have the EL Company Store in them, too.

    Warm Regards,

    Wendy
