I ended up winning 4 items in the silent auction and this wreath that is so beautiful in the live auction. In the live one I thought some one had out bid me and I had reached the end of my budget so I resigned myself to not getting it and then all of a sudden the auctioneer called sold on my number and I was astounded! I have taken a picture to show you but the picture doesn't do it justice, It is unbelievably beautiful in real life.
The 4 things I also won were 2 identical little mug/hot choc, and goodies baskets, they were very inexpensive and 2 medium size gift baskets that were about half their retail price. I now have most of my Christmas shopping done as I opened the baskets and there are things I can use for all sorts of family members. I figure combining this stuff with the $150 worth of merchandise that have on my Shoppers Drug mart Optimum points card, I should have 95% of my Christmas shopping done.
There was this coolest purse made from recycled wrappers (misprints and overstock that would have been thrown out otherwise and it is so beautiful with all its bright colours, I have a picture of that of it too.
