I was very excited last week, when someone from CSN Stores contacted me about doing a giveaway. If you’ve never heard of them, you need to take a look at their site. It’s a huge website that contains over 200 individual stores that sell everything from contemporary coffee tables to handbags and cookware.

Speaking of coffee tables, I am smitten with this one for my empty formal living room:

Love the nickel and mirror together!

I’ve had this rug on my wish list for the last couple months, also for the formal living room:

Really great price for 8x10!

Enough about me and what I want! The questions is: What would you put $65.00 towards? CSN Stores is giving one of my readers $65.00 towards the purchase of anything on their site! As the husband and I were browsing around, we found a couple more things.

We both really liked this cute little side table:

Very modern

And with the holidays coming up, we thought something like this platter might come in handy:

For your turkey!

The Rules:
Leave a comment on this blog post. You can either comment on what you would buy or you can just say something like, “Pick Me!”.
Only one entry per person, please.
The giveaway will end at the end of the day, central time, Monday, November 15th.
I will use to pick the winner.
I will notify the winner and the representative from CSN on Tuesday the 16th.
The winner will be emailed a $65.00 gift certificate code by CSN.

Please note that the gift certificate code will not cover international fees.
I have not been compensated in any way to do this giveaway.

  1. I would love to win and use the gift certificate towards an area rug for my bare family room floor!

    Pick me! Lol!

    I could do some damage with a gift certificate. Pick me!!

    Pick me! I’ve been trying to find some every day dishes that will be both functional and stylish (and resist chipping!) for over a year. I’d use my $65 towards a new service for 12!


  5. They have great stuff on their site. I always enjoy looking around. I would use the GC to get something for my new sunroom, so pick me! πŸ™‚


  6. No, No… Pick me! Pick me! Know what I mean, hint, hint, nudge, nudge. Ken


  7. Oh, the freedom to buy whatever I want. I’d probably go with a giraffe. Assuming they sell those. If not, I suppose I’d settle for a table.


  8. Thanks for visiting my blog. It’s always nice to “see” you. πŸ™‚

    I would probably put the money towards one of their insulated dog houses. The idea of a frisky pup shut up with us in the house all winter is NOT a appealing one!


  9. Posted by lou on November 11, 2010 at 9:06 am

    I would put it toward anything unbreakable:)

    The pet fountains look interesting.


  12. I’m not sure what I would buy but it would be fun looking! Pick me! ; )

    Did not say relatives are excluded! May the one who needs it most win.

    Love you,

  19. Posted by Brittany on November 11, 2010 at 10:20 am

    Pick me! I would put it towards either new lamps or a new light for our dining room. I think the light in the dining room is the original one from when the house was built in the 70s. Definitely not a pretty look πŸ™‚

    I would SO pick the best kitchen knife possible. The sharpest 7-71/2 inch blade heavy use one I could find.. no serrated edge either! I need one so bad, it is sad..


  61. Posted by domestic diva on November 14, 2010 at 8:40 pm

    I’d use it toward a guidecraft kitchen helper.

    Whoo hoo! I love a giveaway! How cool is it that they contacted you! Are they watching you?! If I win, I have to use it towards a food processor. It is really pathetic that we don’t own one already. I have a tiny chopper that just don’t cut it! πŸ˜‰
