The Keep On Giving Sale Event by Gus* Modern

Gus* Modern Keep on Giving sale event

Gus* Modern Keep on Giving sale event

The Keep On Giving Event is an doubly rewarding opportunity to acquire a gorgeous furniture piece, a lamp or an accessory from Gus* Modern, while giving back to a local food bank. You need to show support for a local food in order to receive 15% off any Gus* Modern furniture or accessories.

The event is taking place at participating retailers. I know that 2Modern in the States and Modern Karibou in Canada are participating. Click here to locate a Gus dealer near you.

If you are on the market for dining furniture, have a look at the Plank dining table and bench. I think the bench is perfect for a family home.

Gogoglass Annual Sample Sale is November 29, 2008

I will not miss the Gogoglass Annual Sale event since I usually find unique Christmas gifts and stuffers at an unbeatable price. For less than half price, you get beautiful handmade items with little, sometimes not even noticeable imperfections. This is why it is best to arrive early.

This year, an orange mortar and pestle is on my list. Last year, I bought an orange lemon reamer. I adore it; how it works is second to none. In fact, I bought several lemon reamers for my gift exchanges. I am a fan of Annie Michaud; I featured her work a few times already.

Come to meet Karine and Annie at their glass blowing studio on November 29, 2008 from 10 AM to 5 PM. If you see me while you are there, come say hello.

Summer Sale at Fruits and Passion

summer sale at fruits and passion

Products from Fruits and Passion always make an appreciated hostess or birthday gift. So take this chance to save up to 40% on selected products during the Summer sale.

I am a fan of their Cucina line. I used the Cucina Dish Detergent to clean my kitchen sinks. I want to try the Cucina Countertop Cleaner next. All my girlfriends love the Cucina Purifying Hand Wash with Olive Oil. So this is a sure bet.

Anything from the Art Home collection would be great for a housewarming party.

In stores, you will receive a cute free handbag with every purchase of $45 and more. The Summer Sale occurs until July 21 or while quantities last online or in stores across Canada and United States.
