How’d you like to carry around your fondness for Carole Lombard? You now have that chance — and if you hurry, you can save a few bucks in the process.
An eBay seller based in Hong Kong is selling eight versions of a money or cigarette case, such as the one above. Each measures 4″ x 2 1/4″, and is one-half inch deep. Here’s an idea of what can fit inside:
The seller notes the photos are not stuck on or laminated; “this is superior high quality artwork protected by a heavy coating of crystal clear enamel. This makes the image amazingly vivid and virtually indestructible.”
Ordinarily, these sell for $7.99 each, but for the next three days each can be purchased for $5.99. As of this writing, there are 10 copies available of all eight images.
So what do the other seven look like? Here are two:

All eight of these — and some other Lombard items as well — can be found at http://www.ebay.com/sch/m.html?_odkw=&_osacat=0&_armrs=1&_ssn=svejdalandusa&_trksid=p2046732.m570.l1313&_nkw=carole+lombard&_sacat=0&_from=R40.
They look pretty stunning…case closed.
