50% OFF & FREE shipping from Coldwater Creek June 6, 2010

Ok, I’ll admit it. I’ve always thought of Coldwater Creek as a place where my mom shops. Please don’t get me wrong — she’s a stylish, classy lady, but our tastes are a bit different in clothing. She’s a Coldwater Creek kind of gal, and I am more of an Ann Taylor type. Well, I found a code for 50% OFF & FREE shipping from Coldwater Creek, so I couldn’t resist giving the site a once-over.

I found these fabulous brown & metallic flip-flops at Coldwater Creek — also available in blue — for just $12.97 (+tax), regularly $25.95! And they’ll arrive to your door at this 50% OFF price with FREE SHIPPING when you use the code WHH9216. NOTE: THIS EXPIRES TODAY!

If your items don’t fit, you can always return them to a Coldwater Creek store near you! (Find the nearest store.)

Expires: TODAY, 6/6/2010

SOLD OUT — Perfect Mother’s Day gift: Silver nest necklace with freshwater pearls April 27, 2010

SOLD OUT! JUST GOT WORD — WE’VE DEPLETED THE INVENTORY… SORRY, FOLKS!

The secret is finally out! My godson’s mom wears the most beautiful necklace all the time, and I’ve been dying to ask her where she got it… Well, she’s been in touch with the vendor and they’re selling them as a fundraiser for ReadyStart (a nonprofit in Dallas). Half of the purchase price will go directly to support ReadyStart’s programs to help young children & their families through various therapies, early childhood intervention, and education.

This is THE gift to give your self/mom/grandmother/aunt/dear friend for Mother’s Day!

Here’s the scoop…

Each pendant is lovingly hand-crafted by an experienced Etsy artisan. She has conducted 140 successful transactions on Etsy.com, with 100% positive feedback. She has very generously agreed to make the pendants at a very reduced rate in order to raise maximum funds. You can choose items to be shipped directly to you or to someone else as a gift!

This pendant is created with tarnish-resistant silver plate wire wrapped and woven into a small nest and enhanced by small freshwater pearl eggs. You can pick the number of eggs (1 to 4) and the color of each (white, pink, and/or blue.) The pendant measures just under 1 1/4 inches long, including the hook, and is about 3/4 inch wide. The chain is sold separately. Please note the size of the hook is 1/8 of an inch if you wish to wear this with your own chain. Otherwise, purchase our silver-plate chain to go with it for a complete piece!

The best part is: Half of your purchase price will go to benefit ReadyStart’s programs!

Nest Egg Pendant: $17 for up to 2 eggs. $2 for each additional egg.
18 inch silver-plate chain with toggle clasp: $5.00
Direct Shipping per location: $3.00

Contact: barb_mckinney@yahoo.com
(Please be sure to let her know you heard about this deal on Being Resourceful!)

NOTE: DUE TO HIGH DEMAND, DELIVERY BY MOTHER’S DAY cannot be guaranteed… However, why not make a certificate and print out the photo of the necklace and put it in a card? Better late than never, right? 🙂

Expires: Whenever the inventory runs out, so hurry up and place your orders!

FREE overnight shipping upgrade for James Avery orders February 5, 2010

So… Valentine’s Day is NEXT WEEK. Do you have something thoughtful for your Valentine? If not, do you have time to get that shopping done? Here’s a tip to make your shopping so much easier!

James Avery, one of my favorite jewelers based out of Kerrville, TX, is offering a FREE overnight shipping upgrade for orders placed by noon CST on Thursday, February 11th. His jewelry is of the highest quality and beautifully made. I’ve been wearing it for 20 years now, and pieces I received way back then still look brand new. Simply choose “Overnight PM” shipping then enter code NEXTDAY at checkout!

There’s something for every budget in the James Avery Valentine’s Day Catalog, but one piece that grabbed at my heartstrings is this gorgeous heart strings pendant.  It is 1″ long and would float beautifully along a simple chain necklace. It reminds me of the floating heart my parents gave me when I was a little girl.

If you have time to get to a store, visit a James Avery location near you.

There’s something about the gorgeous Waterford crystal that just makes me happy! Maybe it is the way the light reflects in it or the way it is solid in my hand…

Anyhow, here’s a deal just perfect for holiday gifts. Waterford’s classic heart-shaped ring holder is just $29, and with code LISMORE you can get FREE SHIPPING and FREE GIFT WRAPPING on any order!

Folks, if you’re giving a sparkly ring this holiday season (hint! hint!), pair it with this ring holder to be sure the ring stays safe by the sink! (The last thing you want to have to do on Christmas afternoon is take apart those pipes or call the plumber…)
