Have you heard of CSN stores? I had never heard of them until they contacted me the other day asking me to do a review of their store/ products on my blog. So, of course I checked them out first and was surprised at how much products they sold online. Seriously, they have so much stuff! Which is pretty cool because I do shop online occasionally and it's nice to have another 'go to' place to check out stuff. In fact, I did purchase quite a few items online when we were expecting Jude because it was more efficient and less expensive to have it delivered. Even now it is a lot easier for me to shop online than it is to take Jude out- especially in this hot weather.CSN offers millions of products and great deals on shipping...sometimes even free shipping depending on the item and where you are located.
So, I spent much of the weekend trying to figure out what I wanted to review. I thought about all of the projects we are working on right now and how we could quite easily purchase many items through CSN. I browsed through lighting options (as we are gradually replacing lights in our home from the boring base ones they come with), sinks for the bathrooms, storage and organization items, furniture...you name it- I looked at it. Of course I didn't even make a dent in what they carry because they carry so much. But luckily they have a pretty good system for narrowing down what you are looking for based on price, type of item, brands and more so it is quite easy to search their site. I will definitely keep them in mind when working on these projects.
CSN has over 200 stores online. They pretty much have everything covered. Jess, the person I talked to, also mentioned they have a store just for bedroom vanitys which is pretty cool because I have this weird little space between our bedroom and bathroom just across my closet which I am brainstorming ideas for. Of course, when Reiley saw me going through the vanity section she fell in love with this. A girl can dream right? I like how while just checking out the vanity section alone there are many price levels, styles and types to choose from.
I'm off to try to narrow down what I would like to review. So far I am thinking about either working it into our home improvement plan or kitchen related. Kitchen stuff is always a plus- especially in your first few years in a house when you are constantly buying things.
Here's some questions for you guys if you'd like to help me out- If you happen to check out their site and have any ideas on what you would want to review you can leave a comment. Or if you have shopped from them before let me know how your experience was- it's always good to get some feedback. Also, what are the type of things you look for when shopping online (as far as rating a store)? I am thinking definitely ease of use & appearance of the site are big for me (of course it being a legit site first off). I also check out shipping costs- if it is crazy expensive for shipping (hello IKEA) then I move on.
After I pick out my item and try it out I will post to let everyone know how it goes- kinda fun, huh?
I've set a date to open my shop back up. Although I am not going to say just yet- but soon. Real soon. Just finishing up some things and getting orders placed then I will start posting some peeks at what I have been working on. Exciting stuff! It's been so long and I am definitely a little nervous having less time for shop work with Jude around now but I am so anxious to get rolling and I think it's about time!
