Surprise! It’s another Giveaway

This time, it’s different.

I usually don’t do this sort of thing, but in the efforts of branching out a little and maybe having someone ELSE pay for the giveaways I hold on this blog rather than just me, I’ve decided to accept an offer from an online site.

I’ve been contacted by the good folks at CSN Stores to either review of one of the many products offered on their 200+ websites or to host a giveaway. And I’ve chosen to do both, so let me explain how this will work.

In case you’re wondering who CSN is, they’re one of the top three U.S. retailers of home and office goods. Based in Boston, they started up in 2002 and were recently named to the Hot 100 List of online retailers for 2009. From bar stools to beds, and bowls to bikes, I was surprised to see how many goods they have available. And they have free shipping on many of their items, which is a huge plus.

They’ll be sending me a casserole dish to review and I can’t wait to fill it with something tasty. But here is what you can win in this giveaway:

French Water Glass

French Home Gourmet LaRochere 9-oz. Water Glasses

(set of 6) in a Napoleonic Bee Motif

I love these thick glasses, as well as the little bee motif. And you know I love all things French!

This Giveaway is open to US and Canada residents only (sorry to everyone else). However, if you know someone who lives in either the US or Canada whose address you can use and who will ship you the items if you win, well then go ahead and enter.

THE RULES

  • Leave a comment on this post that includes a way to get in touch with you (either a link to your blog, or an e-mail address).
  • Extra chance to win if you post about the Giveaway on your own blog. If you do, COME BACK HERE AND LEAVE ANOTHER COMMENT with the link to your post.

Contest ends Saturday evening, January 23 at 6 PM EST. Winner will be chosen using the random integer selector at Random.org and will be announced at 7 PM on Saturday evening.

Good luck, all!

I have been in love with those glasses forever, at least since they first came out in stores.

And the bee motif is the one that I use on the back of my envelopes when I hand make my cards.

Used it on our wedding stationary also.
