Giveaway! Oh yeah! (now closed)


Hello friend! It is Friday, and that calls for a super sweet giveaway!

This giveaway comes from the good people at Cymex, who want to give one Better After reader a $50 gift certificate toward their store

(In case you didn’t know, they sell coffee tables and end tables).
If you are like me, and your husband randomly sold half of your furniture on craigslist one day while you were out of town … um, or if you just would like some new stuff, then this giveaway is for YOU! Of course, many of the tables are more than $50, but if you were already in the market to buy some, then hooray! $50 less cash out of your wallet! If you weren’t, well, don’t be bashful. You can still enter to win, and there are still many items at or under $50 too!

Check them out, has got every sort of style you can imagine. And don’t let the name fool you, they sell ottomans, groups and console tables too.

That one on the bottom right is my faaaaave. Oh yeah, and FREE SHIPPING right now too! Woot!
