Every now and then I browse through some of the online mega-shopping sites. You know, places like Amazon.com, eBay, CSN. WHAT??? CSN?
Yes, I enjoy looking at the bazillion sofas, bedroom sets and other furniture at allmodern.com, or imagine creating a library out of my office at csnbookcases.com. Last week I decided that I needed some new luggage and remembered that CSN also owns luggage.com. Of course, as I usually do, I got sidetracked and started looking at the wallets. Frankly, I was shocked that the online store that I’ve come to think of as my go-to for furniture and toys would have quality leathers.
And yes, I took the leap and ordered.an apple green wallet. Hey, I had been given a pink & green Vera Bradley bag full of swag at BlogHer a few weeks ago from The Product Review Place, so I NEEDED a matching wallet (Broad “A” is at home laughing as she reads that I’m sure).
The selection at CSN was great, ordering was easy. I was using a gift code and there are times that using a code can make the checkout process a real pain in the neck, but this was totally painless. It took about a 2 weeks for the wallet to arrive (frankly it felt longer).
When the wallet arrived, it was just as it appeared in the picture (no surprises). It has plenty of slots for my credit and rewards cards and there is a long zippered compartment as well as a small coin envelope that snaps. I found the snap to be kind of tough (I really had to work to close it), I’m assuming that it will “work in” as I use it. The coin section is actually too small, so I’m using the zippered area for coins.
The leather is nice, although not top of the line, but then again the cost was under $48. I think that’s still a little high considering the quality. Still, I don’t think I’m going to give up shopping at CSN any time soon, since I know that I can find all sorts of things that I had no idea I need.
Maybe I should keep that Piel Apple Green Wallet in my bag and not keep pulling it out when I’m online. Just sayin…..
