The shop

Dit anyone of you ever buy something else from Sullivan besides cd's and dvd's? If so, what did you buy, and perhaps you could give a review of the item? Did it meet your expectations?

My mom gave me the Anne Shirley perfume as a gift. I actually really like the scent because it's subtle and it doesn't set off my allergies. I didn't actually ever plan to get it or ask for it but it was better than I would have expected. I also have a print of Anne 2 that is of the James Hill painting of Anne by the ocean. I have it framed above my bed and I love it. I also have Beyond Green Gables, the book about Sullivan's film designs. It's a great coffee table book with lots of photos of sets, natural locations and paintings that inspired the way he filmed certain scenes. I really like looking through it and reading about his inspirations. I got it when it was on sale for $10, too. That's a steal for a large size hardcover!

That's not a lot of money indeed. Do you also have books of Montgomery?

I think the jewellery and the cosmetics and all are a real goldmine for Sullivan. But I wonder why they never had a replica made of the ruby ring Gus and Felicity shared. I think fans would have liked to have one.

I just have the two christmas mugs; they are big. Unfortunately shipping to Europe is very expensive. I opted to buy one of those small frames with field decoration on it, but it would cost me three times the price if not more. I don't think they are selling it anymore though.

Yeah, all the jewelry is ugly and/or doesn't make sense to me. I think they should have made a replica of Gus' ruby ring, Anne's circlet of pearls, Marilla's amethyst brooch, maybe the red necklace Mr. Tyler gave Sara in Hope Chest of Arabella King. Those I would have liked and would have made sense. I also would like to see more costumes replicating costumes from the movies and the series.

I do have a couple of books of LMM. I have the letters she wrote to Ephraim Weber and I just got the L.M. Montgomery Album, which is kind of like a biography and photo coffee table book. I plan to get some more books about her in the future, too. I didn't realize until recently how many there are.

I agree, they simply should have sticked to the jewellery 'that mattered', that was used in the show(s). I also think that stuff they sell is ugly. Looks like it's for old ladies. And I agree that it doesn't have a connection with the show. In the future I might try her books about Avonlea, but I'm not sure yet; to many other books need my attention.

Common, let's ask them to make the ruby ring available, so we can all feel like Gus and Felicity! :roll:

Quite a few of us fans have been wanting them to sell a replica of Gus's ruby ring for years (since the shop opened!), along with the pattern for Felicity's wedding dress. Both of those would be massive sellers.

I was wondering - are the prices on the Sullivan Entertainment shop website in Canadian dollars or US dollars?

I would love Anne's circlet of pearls! I looked through the jewelry today and wow, it is crappy! It looks like it's supposed to be artisan jewelry, except it looks cheap.

By the way, does anyone know where the actual ruby ring went after the show?
