Oh yeah, about that…

Awhile back, like in April (oops) I wrote about a Silpada party I was going to host. Here’s the post to refresh your memory. I really WAS planning on telling you how that went but uhh I guess I just didnt. So, here is the update, just a few months late…

The party went great but I freaked out a bit when I realized I would have to spend a few bucks to have a possibly greater reward of GOBS. OF. FREE. JEWELRY. I wasn’t sure if I should do it. The guilt took charge. I couldn’t believe I was going to possibly spend any money AT. ALL. But, I did. I ended up going to the dollar store to get the party supplies (great place for cleaning supplies and other random stuff you wouldn’t guess you could get there). I think I ended up spending about $10 for the party goodies. There were some chips and brownies and more random chocolate. I remember a lovely chocolate-y night with jewelry mixed in.

So this is how it broke down. I hustled (asked all my friends and family members husbands and boyfriends if they wanted to buy something for their loves- they all did! it was great!) Based on the percentage of sales from the party I ended up getting $375-ish dollars worth of free jewelry! How nuts is that!??! I got two great necklaces, a silver cuff bracelet, a pair of big silver ball stud earrings and another pair of dangley earrings – all for free. Well, I guess I got all the jewelry for like $10 (for the cost of the supplies). Pretty good deal if you ask me and a pretty good way to get some new items especially in the draught of accessories that I’ve been having since the old Spending Fast started. Thanks to my bud Shayla for the suggestion to host the party!
