Is anyone buying? This visit is kind of a snooze for me. I have been scoring big time on As-is items so only interested in a couple of things. I already have more than enough Christmas to decorate three homes so not buying anything Christmas-related. 

 

I did pick up the clear beaded Garland H44862 and set of a set of four picks in clear H44286. These are for winter decorating in a copy of a dining table look for my entryway table I saw Val do in a previous year. I had everything to complete the look but the picks and Garland. 

 

 

I am interested in the snowflake pedestals coming up tonight but I will see how much they are. I had her snow globe pedestals H244382 delivered today. I managed to get two in as is so I was happy.

I did order Valerie's H442508 Illuminated Pearl & Glitter Hurricane in Champagne. I ordered a few as is items so we'll see how that goes. Other than that, I think I am done for this visit.

No purchases for me haven't watched her show yet.  Most likely I won't purchase.  

 

Now that stores like TJMaxx / Homegoods are fully stocked I'm more inclined to see it in person.  Better prices and get to decide if good quality or not immediately.

 

If I could behave and get rid of a decor item or more when bringing in a new piece I'd be a happy camper.  Since that isn't happening at the moment, I have big decluttering plans however lol - I'm curtailing new purchases.

@MG Chris  I had the two different sets of Heart Strings ornaments in my cart when I remembered that I gave my grands these Valerie heart ornaments last Christmas (set of 5):

Set of 5 Glass Scroll Heart Ornaments with Gift - H231448

They were only $22.50 per set. 

I love the Heart Strings ornaments, but I don't want to repeat the heart theme, and these are much more money, if I'm getting two sets.

I really enjoyed looking at her sneak peak yesterday, lots of pretty things but like so many others, I have enough that

I love and not more space to hold anymore.

 

If I was getting anything I would have gotten the snowmen roasting marshmallows-very cute, for the grandkids room-they love to roast marshmallows, the flameless candle with santa and reindeer flying in the sky, and I can't remember the other one!

 

And like others have said, I think most of her things are overpriced even double what other stores have and like @rockygems123, said, stores you can go to both in person and online have so many things just like Valeries with often much more reasonable prices. People have so many options.

I only like to watch her with a few hosts and just won't anymore with others. I used to always watch every show of hers and get one thing I loved.

I agree her prices are getting outrageous and the quality has gone down. I have been hitting As-is like crazy. I have several sets of her tall pedestals H22358. I bought As-is and there is no way they are worth full price. 

 

I have the snowmen roasting marshmallows and the battery cover is falling off right out of the box. I am keeping it but I wouldn't buy it again.

They are pretty and I like the ones you bought last year.

I looked a her Preview yesterday and didn't see anything that I was interested in.

 

I have been shopping Hobby Lobby, At Home  and Home Goods. Better prices and I cn see the quality before I buy.

I ordered the 3-tier lazy susan in black (H442811) because I really liked it for decorating. Then I wondered where I would put it. I got caught up in the seasonal aspect of it!

 

 

And I ordered some picks (H444213) - can't resist those!   Smiley Wink
