Facebook Parties and Selling Stuff

While I'm writing this blog post, I'm attendng a jewelry party on Facebook. In the old days you used to have to go to someone's house to attend these kinds of parties. Remember Pampered Chef? Let's not talk about the paper, ink pads, and stamps taking up space in my office closet from the Stamping Up parties I attended. I'm still using candles and tealights I bought 5 years ago at a candle party. How about cleaning supplies from Norwex? Clothing - don't remember the name. Tupperware? Mary Kay? I've attended them all.

Perhaps I have will-spend-money-on-anything tattooed on my forehead?

Update: I didn't buy anything!

Now I feel mean.

What is wrong with me?

Although, the party is open for another twenty-four hours I could still cave and buy something. And make my friend happy. You'd think at my age I'd be able to say no to buying something I don't want and not feel guilty. But, no.

Sigh.

This is why you want to invite me to these kind of parties.



How about you? What home parties have you attended? Hosted? I know there are lots of author events happening on Facebook?What is the last one, if any, you've attended? Did you have fun? Win a prize? Is it less pressure? More pressure?

OMG, I haven't been to one of those parties since I was a kid and Mom took me with her. I think it was a Home Interiors party. :shrug: I don't get invited to stuff like that. The only time I have a problem saying no to a sales thing is Girl Scout cookies. The last time I had one stop by was before we moved, and I told her I couldn't buy cookies that year. She was so damn cute, it broke my heart to refuse her. (Which is probably why she knew to hit me up every year.)

Girl Scout cookies are in a whole other category. Hopefully they find you in your new place. You wouldn't want to go without those cookies!

Tupperware, Candles, Jewelry

At least I could gift the candles and jewelry....

That's true, JB. And sometimes it's nice to have things on hand to give away in a pinch.
