What is an item you wish you could have another of, but can't find anywhere anymore?

This is just meant to be a fun thread...but may actually be one that proves to be helpful!  Someone here just may know where to find that elusive item.

 

For me, it's a pull-over tunic from Louis Dell'Olio called a poet blouse I bought years ago from QVC. I just enjoy it so much and wish I had another.

For me it would be the fragrance from Bare Escentuals called Escentuals.  It came in shower gel, body lotion, and a spray frangrance.  It was a soft floral with some vanilla and  tonka bean notes I think. I know it is probably available on Ebay, but I would prefer a fresh batch.  Fun thread, reminds me of the scene from P S I Love You  when they were on the lake and Lisa Kudrow's character had her nail polish fall out of their boat.

@foggy  For me it's a comfort item I have not been able to find in months....  CoffeeMate Sugar Free Italian Sweet Cream non dairy creamer.  As someone who cannot tolerate dairy this flavor tasted like a dream for me in my coffee!  Can't get this at all anymore & I live in an area with a lot of grocery store choices.  I know in the scheme of things it's not earth shattering but my coffee cup sure misses it!

@foggy : Best purchase for me was a Susan Graver long midweight 8 gored (sp) . Loved them because conservative, comfortable and classic.  I had so many people make positive comments about the skirt and where it was purchased.The later versions were not thick and they changed the fabric.

I knew it was summer when I'd purchase OPE nail lacquer in Rainbow. It applied as white but when sun/light hit it -- it took on colors of a prism. Can't find it now. OPE has other colors with the word rainbow in it but I miss my Rainbow.

For me,  it would be another Quacker Factory jacket that had a snowman on the back of it and it said "BELIEVE IN MAGIC".   This was years ago, but I got a black one, a wine colored one, and a navy one.  I wore them all winter, for years!!!!!   Of course, any motiff would work....Santa, Christmas Tree,  Puppies & Kittens playing together in the snow,  a clear night with snow falling on trees, etc.

For me, it's a coordinating art print to one that I have now.  I have one of those moody city scapes, with a bridge (of course) done in a retro style.  Years ago, there were coordinating pieces,  one in particular of a skyscraper skyline, done in the same colors by the same artist.

 

At the time, I wasn't that interested in symmetry, so didn't get the other piece.  Later I regretted it and did an extensive search online, but never found it.  It's just as well though--  my walls have just enough art as it is now.  Will have to thin out before I could add more!

 

Fun thread of "what might have been".

A Sigrid Olsen knitted linen tee shirt. In a hot summer like 2020, all the benefits of linen with none of the wrinkles. Washed perfectly. I found it last October at Marshall's for $7.99 and wore it this summer every week.

My husband and I are right there with you. I miss that creamer so much, its been months since anywhere around here has had it. I know because I try to order it every time I place an order with Wal Mart or Kroger.
