CSN Store Giveaway

Posted by Quinn at Thursday, July 15, 2010

If you've not heard of CSN stores by now, you're really living out of the sticks. So many bloggers alike have done many giveaways for so many 'lucky-you' out there and CSN finally approached me. I always thought this is nothing but merely another advertising stunt and I have told myself I wanna keep this page ad free. But when you have good things in life, why not share it? Besides, the ad is generating me some revenue enough to keep this page going. It's a win-win situation so I decided to not be so stuck-up and stubborn and benefit myself, benefit you all and benefit CSN.

You need a new dining room makeover, yes you do. I thought I don't need any until I browsed their page and I chance upon some of the more interesting items below that I'd like to share with you all....

How about a dining room set with table stand made of Birchwood that's made durable? I would so love my dining room to look like that, not cluttery, design kept simple and it's simply elegant. I know, you're probably thinking what if you wanna throw a party and there's so little chair???

Because if you ask me, I will say I will throw all parties outdoor. It's awesome, you get to soak your feet in the sun, underneath a shady patio umbrella like above. Isn't it wonderful? Life is amazingly good! And you don't have to worry about kids dirtying your precious carpet or that they don't have enough room to run around. An outdoor party would be the answer!

Apart from that, check out this awesome Kitchen Island Cart. You know, I might just do away with the rollers easily and have it stationed permanently in the kitchen. The surface would make a good kneading and rolling-out-pastry surface and I'll probably not put my precious Tessa Kiros there but rather all my baking tools. It's gonna be great and I never have to worry about forgetting something and have to go take it or so forth because everything is just within reach!

And when I have guests over for dinner, I would serve them food from my best China. Let it be one or two or more guests, CSN has everything you need for your perfect dining room.

You can also organise a Christmas in July Party here and wow your crowd with these Old Britain Pink Castle Christmas Set, adds to the festive and the colour!

Or pull out your best English Tea Set and make some scones to serve along your favourite Chai.

Like any of the above? I don't wanna make up your mind for you so I'm gonna be really practical and do a giveaway for an $80 voucher up for grab. Buy what you like and browse all you like and pick the favourite of the lot, though I assure you that is going to be a real tough challenge!

I don't do Facebook and I don't do Twitter and like every other blog, this giveaway is only open to USA and Canada readers only. Look, I am truly sorry about this but it's not up to me to decide and I figure I'd benefit some of my USA and Canada readers rather than not benefiting anyone. Hopefully more giveaways in future alright? Pinky promise...

All you need to do is to leave a comment here in this post. I'm gonna be away for a bit and so you have time from now till the Sunday, 25 July 2010, local Adelaide Time. I won't be picking by random, instead Aaron and I will go through the comments and pick out the one we think is the most deserving one. Just tell us why you really want this $80 voucher and what will you desperately buy with it! We'll announce the one-and-only lucky winner the following day!

I hope all of you win but like I said, there's only one voucher up for grab so all I can do is to wish you the best of luck. I'll see you when I'm back!

This giveaway is proudly sponsored to you by CSN Stores.

Oh wow! Totally blown me away! aww...I'm lost for words! Absolutely gorgeous stuff - a dream come true!

I would use it towards a trike for my daughter's 2nd birthday...I doubt it is that deserving but with money tight I know the gift certificate would go a long way!

At times like this I truly wish I was in USA. The china set looks so pretty.

What a kind and generous giveaway.
I have been looking for a set of sheets for my bedroom and they have such a grand array of them to pick from.

Never mind about the giveaway. I just love looking at all these..very beautiful!

I'd love to be picked for this - I don't want to pull out the violins, so please take this as a description of our circumstances and not a guilt based plea.

In October, I am getting married, which is awesome, but putting a heck of a strain on budget. Add to that the fact that I am starting a new business (to help first time entrepreneurs) so I have costs and no income (yet), and you get the picture.

If you choose me, the GC will be used to purchase Christmas gifts for family. We have a bunch of nieces and nephews to buy for.

Thanks for considering us - oh, and we are in Canada.

I'd love to get a guidecraft kitchen helper for my little one. He loves to see what we're doing in the kitchen (and loves to help whenever he can -- I find things for him to do). But at 17 months, he's a bit unstable standing and working from on top of a chair. I like the idea of a platform with a rail to bring him to counter height. All of that to say, I'd love to use this GC toward the purchase of one. Thanks for the chance!

I would love to put the money toward buying a new bassinet or crib for the little one that we have on the way. Our space is very limited at this time and it would be nice to have a place to put him that is all his own. Thanks so much for a great giveaway!

Well, I'm not particularly deserving. I mean, I think I deserve nice things, but I'm not in dire straits. But if I win I promise to use half the gift certificate to buy towels to give to the Pretty Bird Woman House, a women's and children's shelter serving a reservation in North Dakota. I'll use the other half to get a waffle iron, which everyone in my family will appreciate.

I just moved into my first home, its a house near my university. I'm trying to purchase everything I need for my house on my own without any help from my parents which is a bit difficult on a college student budget so I would use this for the purchase of a platform bed.

DG on July 16, 2010 at 2:37 PM said...

This is awesome! Thank you kindly for the chance to win this - I would so go for the emile henry pink pie dish or perhaps even a le creuset enameled au gratin set

My 12-year old son is autistic and attends an after school program for autistic kids where a lot of the things are purchased by the parents. I can't afford to give much other than my time. This would be fantastic for the center:

I would really like to purchase some new dishes. My kids have now moved out of the house and dishes leave little to be desired. Currently, we are eating off of Christmas plates. Looks silly when we have friends over :) New ones would be fantastic!

My daughter just recently moved out on her own, and we're both quite proud of her, working a full time job and trying to go to college full time too to get a job as an ultra-sound tech. If I won I'd put it towards some house wares for my daughter :)

Well, I don't know how deserving I am but I honestly would love a crock pot and I want to buy my mother a tea pot. She drinks lots of tea and does not have one.It would be a nice gift for her birthday.I don't have a job and the husband got his hours cut back to 2 hours a day so we have no money at all.

I would really really like to get something for my basement, it's so dark and definitely needs some color!!!

My parents anniversary is coming up and I would love to surprise them with a wonderful gift from CSN. I know they would love the Dale Tiffany Alpine Ruffle Bowl - PG70703
It's beautiful !

If I won, I would get a dog kennel (i.e., the kennel-aire extra large travel-aire plastic dog kennel in almond), bowls and other pet items. I would donate them to the County Animal Shelter where I volunteer on weekends.

What a fun way to do a giveaway. I'm going to use this idea in the future!

I want to be all deep and altruistic and say I would buy blankets for the homeless or something (kind of useless since I live in Phoenix, Arizona)...

But instead I will tell you the truth. I would use the GC to buy pool toys.

I am Grandma daycare and the summer is stretching on and on and on and on and on and on... (well, you get the idea!)

Thanks for the fun giveaway. And thanks for the great idea!

And now...

Now I am off to stand on the corner to collect coins for my poor, paraplegic family who live in cardboard boxes because of the fire.


Even if you don't pick me, this was totally fun.

Oh.. I need a ice cream maker with built in compressor. Saw that in I'm so jealous of you and Swee San making ice cream so often and I'm stuck with my mixer, churning every now and then, hard work and sweat all in. But in the end, the result is no where near smooth!!!! Sigh, need that coupon for that ice cream maker!!!!!!

carmen on July 24, 2010 at 2:52 AM said...

Thanks for this opportunity. I'd love this gift certificate because my husband and I have just celebrated our 1 year anniversary but haven't been able to afford to presents for each other the entire time we've been married, because he's finishing up school and I'm supporting us. Neither of us are into a lot of "stuff," so it's a worthwhile sacrifice so that we don't go into debt, however I'd love to surprise him with a little "thank you" and "love you" present just for him. He's really into biking (bicycling that is) and so it'd be great to get one of those things where you can hook the bicycle to your car, so that he could go for more scenic rides than just around our block! Thanks so much for the opportunity; it would be such a blessing!
