Giveaway for USA readers
The good folks at CSN stores have given me a $65 gift certificate for one lucky reader who lives in the US to spend at its online stores. CSN Stores has over 200 online stores where you can find anything you need whether it be wall art and decor, fitness equipment, or even cute cookware.
Of course since our Aussie dollar has been so strong for the first time since the 1770s, I've been spending a little time online doing my bit for the American economy. I like to share the love around in the most economical way. And looking at my latest credit card statement I now believe I could be single handedly propping up the US economy. There are some great online stores in the USA!
So, all you have to do is tell me where you like to shop the most (anywhere, online, offline) and the most intriguing answer will win. If you do not live in the US you can still enter if you want to surprise someone you know in the US with the gift. Enter as many times as you want ......it closes on Sunday 23 January.
My favourite shopping destination is now the little Vietnamese market around the corner where I got all my fruit and veges for the week for $20. My mouth is still agape....
This is followed closely by a toy store that sells all the same toys I had as a child (yes, they could now be antiques if I had kept them...). The Kewpie doll in the picture above is from this store and is one of my favourite dolls. I love the store so much that I am now forced to bring up the subject of grandchildren to a certain child of mine because there is only so long a middle-aged woman can get away with playing with paper dress up dolls.....and avoid getting locked up..
So what is your favourite store?
