I Love CSN Stores - And a Giveaway

As many of you know, CSN Stores is a fantastic place to do some great shopping.  I have purchased many items from their stores over the past year, and plan on purchasing many more.  As I am going away again this March with the family, I need to get a new laptop messenger bag as my old one has pretty much worn out its usefulness, with holes in the bottom and sides.  There are some great bags to be found on the site and I will also be shopping for new luggage for my kids as they have outgrown their old ones.  I am also in dire need of new luggage as my old bag got crushed on the flight home from Jamaica last year and I'm not sure if I can pound it back into shape or not.  I really loved that bag though as I always managed to make everything fit and just always made it under the weight limit.  I called it my "magic bag". 

There are several things I really like about CSN Stores.  One of them is their speedy delivery and how they keep me apprised of where my item is in the mail.  I always know when my item is going to arrive so if I am not home I could always have a neighbour pick up the item for me from my porch.  Another thing is their customer service.  If it had a problem, and luckily there have been few problems, customer service has been quick to resolve any issues.  The last item I received from CSN Stores was a lobster pot, and it was wrapped up so tightly, there was little chance of anything happening to it.  It also came in two boxes, which my children naturally fought over, as well as copious amounts of filler.


This is the pot that I received and I absolutely love it.  We used it when we had out crab fest a few weeks ago and for the first time, I didn't have three pots on the stove going at once, but used this on the BBQ and it worked great.  I can't wait to use it at the trailer this summer and see how it fares on the outdoor fireplace.

Cleaning was easy too.  It took little time and was so much easier than the stainless steel pots I have.  Very little scrubbing, and anything that saves time and work is fine by me.


Here are a couple of items I would like purchase in the next few months:



Add a couple of cushions for the lounger and you have a nice comfortable outdoor chair for reading, and I would love something like that!  The bookcases, well...I think that is self-explanatory.

And now for the giveaway!

One of my lucky readers will win a $45 GC to CSN Stores towards the purchase of anything they wish. Contest is open to Canada and US residents only.  Contest closes February 28th at midnight.

MANDATORY ENTRY:  All you need to do is leave your name and email address.  That's it folks!!
