So, this afternoon was my super fun afternoon of makeup/jewellery/handbag/bath items swapping. Kind of like a Mary Kay party, but everything free!
Here's my loot:
|Lots of bath stuff, a pineapple necklace, foot things, nail files, and a baby gift to re-gift|
I totally recommend this sort of thing to EVERYBODY! Because a bunch of jewellery that was sitting around my house now has new homes, filled with people who wear bracelets and rings. A bunch of my stuff went off to happy new homes, I got a bunch of new stuff, win/win really.
There are some leftover bath items, mostly, which I investigated and can be donated to the local women's or teen shelters (they don't take partially used makeup, though - just unused bath items). And I'm posting a bunch of jewellery for sale on Kijiji, so I might make some money off this whole deal too?
You could do this sort of thing in combination with a clothing swap, I suppose. Just turn your living room into a department store for an afternoon - with an area for clothes, an area for bath items, a jewellery area, etc.
In other news, I now have enough soap and bath gel to last me to the end of the year, probably. One less thing to buy!f
