Oh, yes…..Totes are back!!!

The totes are out  BACK!  It’s totally understandable AWESOME!  Watching this awesome, awesome video showing you how neat these totes are!

It’s so wonderful they are back.   Getting one of these totes is a great deal because if add a sponge for $1.25,  you are instantly eligible for hostess gifts ($25.00) with the purchase of the rolling tote!  How wonderful is that?

Better yet?  Gather a few orders and get to $250 for  your home show and get the tote as a half off item!!  That seriously rocks!!

In addition to the  free hostess credit, I had offered FREE shipping if you ordered the tote on or by December 15, 2014.  Since you can’t do that with them unavailable, I will honor that once they are available if you are on my list!!

Here are pictures again:
