Party Time!



  1. woot woot! Party Time!! Thank you for hosting my friend!!!

  2. Thanks for hosting and for the shot out. You’ll be disappointed to hear that the red 24 drawer cabinet made it’s way to my booth last Sunday. However, I put a steep-ish price on it. My mall has called me everyday with 1-3 (!!) offers on it since Sunday. I told them I am holding out, because if it will set at that price it’s worth it. If it doesn’t, it can come back home. :-P

    • I hope they make it back to you…they are so flippin awesome!!! Joe and I are like over the moon about them!!!! : )I just have a feeling that I would have nightmares getting rid of it : ) LOL!!!! hugs and good luck! : )
