I’ve finally dipped my toes into the scary waters of BPAL sales. That is to say, I’m “selling off the BPAL I know I don’t want or need,”:http://www.bpal.org/index.php?showtopic=24201 to other BPAL fans, on the BPAL forum.
I have many limited editions, many things I thought would be desirable. I have two samples of a recently discontinued oil. I thought that would cause a stir.
But what happened was that within just seconds of my post, I had three requests for a sample that I had paid no real mind to– a scent called Baba Yaga. I knew somewhere in the back of my head that it was unreleased, but didn’t think much of it.
Ah well. Here’s hoping I can move some of this stuff. My prices are LOW LOW LOW! But I’ve heard people complain that the market is saturated.
This week I get to find out what it feels like to be one of those people who don’t have a “real job” and just sell stuff online 🙂

I was so, so disappointed that I managed to miss this the one day it was available (April 1st, of course). “Sneaky Sarah”:http://www.ovenall.com/diary/archives/005642.php ordered an extra bottle and didn’t tell me. I asked if she’d sell me a little sample bottle of it (thinking she just had the one bottle) and she said that that would not be a problem. Indeed! Well, tonight she came over and was like, surprise! Here’s a whole bottle! This was especially generous because she could have easily sold this on ebay for two to three times what she paid for it, but she only wanted the original selling price from me.
Anyway! In the bottle it smells like CAAAAAAKE! I love cake. It’s J’s birthday this weekend and I am dying to bake him a birthday cake for both entirely selfish and unselfish reasons. Cake!
On my skin it smells like CAAAAKE! The sweetness backs off a little and the sandalwood comes out. It’s like a spice cake. CAKE!
