Facebook Sale ~ Hair Bows, Necklaces & More

I've been MIA a lot lately- I know! I've been busy. I started a hair bow business, a facebook advertising business, and I've been dealing with kids, family, planning Thanksgiving, Christmas, and juggling craft shows.

I'm one pooped mama!

But, I'm here to shamelessly promote myself and other facebook boutiques- for those who haven't found the niche yet, there are a lot of people who sell boutique items through facebook. Similar to Etsy, but without the fees, and you connect one on one with your clients.

This weekend, using my advertising business, I'm hosting a large Black Friday shopping event- lots of fantastic items (such as Melissa & Doug educational toys, hand knitted hats, hair bows, jewelry, embroidered clothing, and more!) to be found at great prices.

Below are my own auction photos- please do not bid here! Each one will be linked directly to the Facebook page, where you can bid on the items. I work with trusted sellers, and it's a great way to support hand crafted items, and get some shopping done without leaving the comfort of your home.

These are my first 10 auctions, which are open for bidding through Sunday night at 8pm, EST. I have 10 more that will be posted tomorrow- again, all with $1.00 opening bids, and each one is a set of items- anywhere from 5-12 items per set! Better than the dollar store!

If you are in the market to get some Christmas shopping done, stop by and check it out!

Frugal Bath & Body Works

I got an email today about their Signature collection (the body washes, lotions, and sprays).

The collection is buy 3, get 3 free right now. The lotions and washes are $10.50 each, making it 6 for $31.50 before tax/shipping. The spray I originally added, I didn't realize was $14.50, so I ditched that, because of course, THAT one didn't ring up free.

Then, there's a coupon code- 20holiday

It takes 20% off the total, and knocks shipping down to $3.00 flat.

The total in my cart right now is $28.20 after shipping, but before tax.

But, for 6 Christmas gifts, it's not a bad price. These are the full size bottles.
