Oh, I'm not bidding! I just noticed this auction when I was looking at perfume bottles on the site and thought some of the collectors on this site might be interested. Happy bidding to someone.
You're right about the shipping, Petals. I haven't been able to figure out the new rates for international since the price hike, but I know they hiked a lot.

Hi Shannon! I don't collect anymore, but I started with mini perfumes and added some solids, too. I enjoyed every single purchase and second of my addiction and I miss the thrill of the hunt. You're going to have such a good time.
I was just at the Nieman Marcus site because I still love to see the new solids coming out and I think the (bear with me here, I'm not good with names of anything or anyone) celestial charms solid is wonderful. Beautiful color and I loved the charms. I think I may buy a bottle of EL's new tuberose gardenia to wear, and I did like that solid, too, but don't want to wear solid perfume. Too many years of collecting? It would just seem wrong to actually use the perfume. : ) I almost never wear perfume but a gardenia and rose combination may be more than I can resist.
I've seen the Juicy Couture charms and they are adorable. I'm glad they didn't come along before I had my collectorectomy.

I read in a few magazines taht Evelyn Lauder had passed away last year, there was very little said at the time. She died of ovarian cancer, which is sad after all of the work she did to help others with cancer. I expected to read a lot more about this in magazines such as Town and Country and Vogue, magazines that had her picture in them often. It must have been her wish and her family's wish that there be little written about her. She was always a lady.mostlyminisParticipantJanuary 9, 2012 at 7:13 pmPost count: 116
Oh, good. Someone did ask a question. I hope it was posted on the sale page. It might alert a buyer to look more closely at the Princess. Although it would still be tough, since a lot of us don't know what a Princess is supposed to look like.
I don't sell on e-bay any more, but is that true you can't end a listing with bids? I know you can't change certain things once there are bids, but I thought all you had to do was notify the bidders that something was wrong with the auction and then end it. Of course, you'd have to want to end it.mostlyminisParticipantJanuary 6, 2012 at 4:39 amPost count: 116mostlyminisParticipantJanuary 6, 2012 at 4:33 amPost count: 116mostlyminisParticipantJanuary 6, 2012 at 4:28 amPost count: 116
The heart with the furry add on is certainly an “original”. That's a bit sick that someone bought the princess for $40 and is now trying to sell her as “excellent”. Perhaps someone who knows how she should look should ask a question of the seller, although I guess the seller doesn't have to post the question. Sad.mostlyminisParticipantOctober 17, 2011 at 2:53 amPost count: 116
I was just in the Saks in New Orleans. There was a confusing small display with two compants and some jeweled feathers. It was hard to tell if that was their solid offerings and powder compacts, or just a little display someone put together. Sorry I haven't got more info. Hi
Sandra! Dubai sounds very exotic for vacation.mostlyminisParticipantDecember 15, 2010 at 6:50 amPost count: 116mostlyminisParticipantDecember 15, 2010 at 6:38 amPost count: 116mostlyminisParticipantNovember 4, 2010 at 4:33 amPost count: 116mostlyminisParticipantNovember 4, 2010 at 4:17 amPost count: 116mostlyminisParticipantNovember 4, 2010 at 4:15 amPost count: 116
When I was doing a fair amount of selling on e-bay I had a seller number and kept track of everything I sold to pay state tax and I did pay the IRS for what I made selling. You can deduct all your expenses and since I was never a major seller, it wasn't very hard to keep track of. I used a green accounting notebook, but if you were clever with excel, I imagine you could set up a fairly easy way to keep track.
I can see where it would take a lot of time if you were a power seller, but for the casual seller, it isn't that hard to get your license and fill out a form or two.
Hopefully, most of the solid sellers will feel that way and the selling/buying won't be slowed down by the new requirement. It may go along as usual until the law is changed to collect sales tax on internet sales and then it would get more complicated. I'm sure with all the downturn and states looking for money everywhere, that law will become more popular. With the states anyway, not the sellers!
