Someone's Already Done It
The ET/People Emmy Party
Bag is Already Up on Ebay

In less than a day, the ET/People Mag Emmy party gift bag was already listed on Ebay. It's already got a big (reserve isn't met) of $150.

BeansTalk attended this party, but we liked what was in too much to consider dispensing any of it. We were most excited about the Ugly Doll key chain, Kerastase Hair products, Trapp Candles, Burt's Bees lip balm, Fairytale Brownies....heck, we were excited about it all.

The food from The Mondrian's Asia de Cuba was especially yummy, with the appetizers being the best (of course, we were hungry by then). It was considerably more crowded this year, compared to last, even though there seemed to be more parties, including the one directly across the street (it was Showtime's event). Drinks were flowing and more than a few aspiring starlets looked like they had a few.

A cute touch were a couple of photo booths in the dining area, in which guests could take four passport versions of themselves. We partook, naturally.

While waiting in line for the Maybelline beauty bar, we overheard the trophy wife of some Warner exec talking about how the year before it was a Revlon beauty bar and before that a Stila one; she alluded to it going backwards rather than forward. However, she didn't mention how last year there were leather Junior Drake bags instead of the vinyl New York and Company ones of this year (but she probably wouldn't since the bags weren't passed out until you left and you couldn't re-enter the party with a gift bag).

At any rate, it was curious to see how quickly one would be appearing on everyone's favorite auction site.

Here's how the Ebay seller (eventsunlimited4U) listed it (it seems accurate to us, but we didn't get an "array" of Meaningful Beauty, only one item, only one Bigelow item, didn't get Herbalife scrub, eye gel, just mask and moisturizer, one Kai item, perhaps they were combining two bags, keeping items from one they wanted?):

New York and Company designed this leather gift bag exclusively for ET And People's Emmy Party held on Sunday the 18th in Los Angeles. The Bag includes: Avon's Anew alternative intense age treatment, an array of products from Burt's Bee, gift certificate to California Pizza Kitchen, Caress body wash and lotion,Clif Bars, C.O. Bigelow's lemon body cream and rose wonder cold cream, Earth Wind & Fire's Illumination CD, an Equinox Gym membership, DVD to the season premiere of " Everybody Hates Chris", Fairytale Brownies, a gift certificate to the Four Season in Nevis (Caribbean), Frownies facial products, Godiva's Platinum Collection of Chocolates, an array of Herbalife scrub, eye gel and moisture mask, Hootie and the Blowfish "Looking for Lucky CD, an array of Kai products, Kenra Hair products, Keratase Shampoo and Condioner, Kinerase lip treatment, K-Pak hair products, Cocktail Napkins by Mary Phillips, Great Lash Mascara by Maybelline, an array of Cindy Crawford's Meaningful Beauty Skincare products,The Truman Show Special Edition DVD, People Magazine Stylewatch edition, Phil Gordon's Poker book,a T-Shirt from Ryan Seacrest's new " R "line, a gift certificate to Spa 415, Trapp Candles, Uglydoll Keychain and Zents Fig bar Soap.Posted by Picasa
