A Green and Bright Christmas at Wisteria.

I guess I have to give in to the holiday hype that’s already begun for the season. I can dig it… but it ddooeess seem a tad bit early, don’t ya think? Well, after seeing this tree-trimming fast forward video from Wisteria, and the festive background music, I think I just might be getting in the mood (I swear sugar-plum fairies are dancing around my head). I love the  look of this green and gold tree! We all would love a perfectly trimmed Christmas tree and Wisteria offers up a decoration list of how to get from A to Z. Plus, most of their gorgeous ornaments are apart of their latest promotion — buy 4 or more and get a wholesome 25% off!

Shop a la la la… la la la AHHHHHH!

Clicking beyond Craigslist.

You know I love to frequesnt the Style, Home, and Garden sections of the big city newspapers. I’m also trying to off-load some furniture that I currently own. Voila. A recent article in New York Times Home & Garden section, called “Clicking Beyond Craigslist”, presents us with ideas for getting rid of the good stuff – more like the larger pricier stuff. Besides eBay.com, Craigslist.com, and a slew off other auction sites, Steven Milioti explains other ways to get rid of and forget.

Portero.com. Also called the authenticated luxury market for housewares, jewelry and fashion, this avenue for buying and selling to the world is pretty and looks more like a popular online retailer. You can buy and sell here. And its easy on the eyes.

Kijiji.com. Owned by eBay, this colorful and quality website, meaning ‘village’ in Swahili, is a classified advertising site. It allows sellers reach out to buyers near them to keep shipping costs low.

Narts.org. Check out this online portal for the National Association of Resale and Thrift Shops to find the closest drop-off locations in your area.

Isa-ppraiers.org. Before you get chump change for that cherished and rare chest, check out the International Society of Appraisers to make sure you get the true appraised value of your prized furniture possession.

Now clean out those closets and make some moola for that summer vacation. Or like me, to buy more stuff to make my indoor life pretty.
