Who Wants To Party? Bliss-style!
Got alot of ideas swirling around in my head right now. Not a good scenario given all the extra space up there. I've got Craig's List on the brain this morning. I've also been thinking a lot lately (hence the smoke coming out of my ears) about hosting a new blog party. I love participating in these parties as I'm sure most of you do. It's a great way to network with other bloggers and share ideas with one another. So I put those two ideas together, Blog Party and Craig's List, and there you have it. I'm going to host a party each week where we share with each other some fascinating CL finds from our hometowns. This can be anything from an absolute Bah-gain, to something you are contemplating buying for yourself or to re-sell, as well as things that are just plain outrageous! I think this is going to be a lot of fun and a great way to showcase what's hot in other parts of the country. I'm going to spend the weekend getting this party up and running so that hopefully it will be ready to start next week. Any day good for you guys? Be sure to let me know.
And to get you in the mood, here are some examples of what's available in the South Jersey area.
A gorgeous antique desk for $150. Love the kidney shape of this and the wood grain. Very sleek.
A huge antique sign for $50. We're talkin over 6 feet long!
How about an antique barber chair. Yours for only $800!
Fell in love with this needlepoint footstool. Can't remember the price and it's already gone! It must have been pricey or I would've snatched it up!
And who doesn't want a sofa that smells like dog and has hair all over it! What a pose! Ya gotta wonder what people are thinking!
My jaw dropped when I saw this ad. $250 for the set. Ooooooh La La!
An amazing chandy, but way out of my price range at $3,700.
And here are the finds that I'm contemplating.
A very traditional desk lamp for $60.
A chandy a bit more in my price range at $60.
A set of patio furniture from Pier 1 for $300.
A sweet fabric vanity and stool for Amy's room for $125........who am I kidding!
This clock had me at hello. Asking price is $150. But what if it ticks, but doesn't tock? Do I care?
And this is the part where you share with me which purchases are worth it, and which I should pass up. See? We can help each other avoid buyer's remorse in the process of having a good time. It's a Win-Win!!!
Can't wait to hear from you.
Have a great hump day!
