Last summer (July 17th to be exact) I won a $60 CSN gift certificate from Joy at Thrifty Parsonage Living. I was thrilled to have won and started pouring over their website. Every now and then I'd ask my husband if I should order a striped Dash and Albert rug, but then we would agree that there wasn't anywhere to put one in our house. Then I'd look around CSN some more and I would ask him about getting some red dishes to use at Christmas and Valentine's Day, but then I couldn't decide which ones to buy. And so it went on....
I may be one of the most indecisive people in this world. Months went by and I finally decided that what I needed was a clutch purse to use at our son's wedding in May. So just before Christmas (and only weeks before the gift certificate expired) I ordered a stone-coloured leather clutch. Not only did the purse arrive very quickly, it is lovely. It is made of a soft leather and has a shoulder strap so if you are like me and can't coordinate a purse and a drink and a camera then this should help. The clutch is big enough for my cell phone, my camera, my keys, a lipstick, money, and tissue. There are several pockets so it can all be organized efficiently. One of the things I like best is the pretty lining. I'm not benefiting in any way by giving you my honest opinion of CSN, but I just wanted to let you know about my experience with the online shop.
I was recently contacted by CSN to sponsor a giveaway and I was more than happy to do that, especially given that it came close on the heels of my positive shopping experience there. They have offered a $40 gift certificate (does not include shipping costs) to be used at any of their on-line stores.
The amazing thing is you can buy almost anything from CSN, from adjustable bar stools,
to Dash and Albert rugs (swoon - I just can't get enough of these),
to red dishes,
Oh wait, am I listing all the things I would buy. This isn't about me, is it? You need to go to CSN and have a look for yourself.
The giveaway is open to residents of Canada and USA only. Here are the details of the Giveaway:
1. Leave a comment telling me what you would order if you won.
2. Become a follower and let me know in a separate email (or let me know that you are already one).
3. Post, tweet, or mention the giveaway on facebook (and leave me a separate comment letting me know you did so).
Please, please, please leave me an email address so I can contact you if you win. Twice now I have had to re-draw names because I was unable to contact the winner.
The giveaway ends on February 14th at 9:00 pm.
Oh and just in case you are curious, here are a couple of photos of the purse I ordered:
