    We will be in london in April for a cruise out of Dover.

    We were going to stop in Switzerland on the way to see Lilianne but she is not doing well so that is very much up in the air.

    When we use to send solids overseas we had to send them as gifts and not list them as perfume. Perfume and solids have always been a problem to (post) mail. Insurance will not pay in a loss if you mail unacceptable items. Mail at your own risk for many years now.

    Flying you can not take perfume in your carry on. You can check it but I hate to do that on the rare or expensive ones.

    Last couple of years Harrods gives us a hard time mailing solids. You have to get a clerk that knows how to get around the rules.

    Hi All 🙂

    Estee Lauder have released a Union Jack solid for the jubilee celebrations. It's very nice but a bit expensive at £320.

    I have attached a pic, what do you think of it?

    Daisy

    ps It's on the Estee webiste, not a Harrods only solid

    Not New. We have had ours for a couple of years.

    Brigette will have the exact date.

    Brigette is right. They sat on the counter and were used to refill customers bottles.

    Saw several at the Las Vegas store and used one containing Beautiful. At that time LV was giving away an atomizer ( gift with purchase)and you filled it with your choice of perfume from these bottles. Have one also with lid.

    Hi Lisa

    Just now got to see your photos from Hong Kong. GREAT!!

    How in the world did you get your “stuff” to Hong Kong???

    We did a display at NM in Texas over the summer and it was a pain and we drove there. LOL

    Would you like to see some photos? If you are going to do anymore “shows” and need some displays we would be glad to loan them to you. We are retiring LOL. To much work.

    Congrats on your new baby Panda, Cai! If you would ever like a babysitter, I will offer my curio sitting services for free! 😆 LOL! I'm green with envy but very glad that someone in group did get a great find!

    Ann and Ken, I still would love your input on the 5 panda issue.

    Happy Chinese New Year to all!

    My source(2)says there are 5 known MIB . There are (who knows how may) that are damaged or were never filled that didn't make it to the stores as we have seen with other solids. So I would say we have seen an example of both on Ebay.

    Either way Chowlover got a very good buy . Enjoy 🙂

    Hello Ann and Ken,

    Thanks for your post! Just a question, am I right as to all the E.L. solids being gold plated? This is what I have always understood but need you to confirm. I doubt whether the copies are!!!!

    Not all are gold plated. Re: page 25 Gerson. “and/or 22k gold plated”

    Bob told us the Rhodium (seal) was more expense to make than the gold.

    Has anyone heard anything about this year's spring solids? Are there to be any, considering how few solids EL released for autumn/christmas? Last year the spring solids where out in the shops by christmas already, so what is happening??

    Karin

    I was told there would be NO spring solids .

    Thanks!!!

    As I look at it now..it's crooked…. the beautiful vitrine display was actually given to me by Ann & Ken when we met up at the Orlando IPBA meeting!

    I still love it Ann & Ken and can't wait to display it every year… I'm having a holiday party this week and I'm sure it will be a hit!!

    Thanks Lisa

    Do you want some of our old photos to put on for Christmas?

    I have this compact and I know I have the name somewhere but I can't find it. It has 3 musicians on it. Please let me know if you know the name, manufacturer and original perfume. I believe it is Max Factor but I could be wrong. Here is the picture of the front:

    It is a Max Factor. Golden Keepsake. Hypnotique.
