    Hi all,

    My thanks to everyone who responded and helped make this summer internship concept a success. I feel that my intern learned a lot about the world of collecting, of selling, and of philanthropy, all at once. My intern is going to hold on to the solids for future, but stop work during the school year. She may do more, next summer, but if she does it'll likely be through an etsy store or ebay. Meanwhile THANK YOU, all of you… you're a fantastic community and I'm proud to be a part of it. (and yes, I am still a part – I did keep a few of my very special favorites, and someday I'll find that Imperial Panda, :P/> )

    By the way, I actually had a chance to visit with the main doctor of Rising Star Outreach about two weeks ago when I was invited to teach in Tiruchirappalli, Tamil Nadu, India. She drove three hours, just to talk to us. It's great, the work they are doing with empowerment and healing, but I especially enjoyed hearing how they're working to mainstream young children who are growing up in the colonies but don't have signs of the disease. There's an intense stigma they're working against, over there.

    Thought you'd enjoy knowing that because of you we were able to write a nice check and are looking at other ways to help (like building bridges for them with groups we know stateside). I thank everyone at SolidPerfume.com for being such a caring, giving community. :D/>

    Pace e bene,

    Lauren

    Hi Lauren – although I don't need any boxes, I think it is a really lovely thing you are doing offering them to the members on this site.

    This really warms my heart to know that others enjoy the gift of giving as well.

    Well done for your kindness, I hope it brings you great joy and a return of kindness from other people – not just in words, but in actions as well. 🙂

    Thank you so much Sandra. It's kind of an open secret I guess, that the best way to be happy is to try to spread it about… sort of 'enlightened self interest' – Something from your lovely post tells me you already know and practice that… Have a beautiful, blessed day! 🙂

    Pace e bene,

    Lauren

    What's it like selling on eBay these days? It's been a few years for me… I've heard from friends who have bought and sold musical instruments that ebay has really changed and it's not nearly so pleasant. Many thanks for any info! -Lauren 😕

    Hi Lisa,

    The database is really excellent. I did notice there's one item missing, which is called the Good Fortune Buddha, from 1972 (Youth Dew) – if you like, I can email you an image (I couldn't find it online so I can't insert an image) :huh:

    Thanks for providing this awesome resource!

    Pace e bene,

    Lauren

    Hi Fee, That's great that you're resurrecting your collection. I have a few Harrods solids, if you are still looking: 1) English Emblems (lion/crown); English post box; and 2) palace (signed). Just let me know if any of these are of interest. 🙂

    Cheers,

    Lauren

    Help… Who is Micky and how can I order one of these lovely pagodas? I called Saks where strongwater solids usually are, but they don't have it in SF.
    Thanks all….

    wow that's a new way to discover estee lauder solids, first ebay then the store. <img src='style_emoticons//laugh.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’laugh.gif’ /> Ebay is good sometimes — I've seen both the barn and the flower cart there so just keep your eyes open and one will come to you I'm sure. <img src='style_emoticons//biggrin.gif’ border=’0′ style=’vertical-align:middle’ alt=’biggrin.gif’ />
