Penance Dipping my toes into the swapping waters. It's fun to get new things and not have to bust out the old sacrificial lamb...I mean wallet.

Hi I just wanted to let you know that I saw a bottle of Gothabilly on eBay Direct from BPAL, I saw it was one of the swaps you wanted. Just wanted to let you know.
I've got it on my watch list! Hopefully it won't go as high as it did last time. :)
Penance Reminiscing. It still feels strange to be a BPAL "old-timer." Strange to have come back from my hiatus to find that half my collection is suddenly enviable and HTF. Not a bad feeling, just strange. Makes me glad I got in on (almost) the ground floor. Otherwise I'd never have been able to get many of the scents in my collection. Score!

I miss the cobalt bottles/white labels and when most people via swapping got to try most of the catalog at a time when the GC outnumbered the LEs! :) I am lost a bit now, so many new perfumes, all the time!
I miss them, too. The cobalt was so pretty and the labels were so elegant looking. I do like the fact that the new labels are oil resistant. But I've always been careful with my bottles and their labels and never had an issue with drippage or spills, so it's just a nice bonus instead of a necessity.
Penance Time for another major destash from the old smellies box, I think. My enthuasiasm for my rediscovered love of BPAL knows no bounds, but my perfume boxes aren't quite as boundless. Lots of retesting in the next couple days.

Penance Uploaded my post-BPAL-hiatus avatar sized scent icons in my brand spanking new gallery.

Penance Added a Cire Trudon Spiritus Sancti candle to my sales thread. Sad to see it go, but it's not going to get burned, which is a sad fate for a $75 candle.

Penance Finished destashing my BPAL extras and unwanteds. All are up for sale in my sales thread, waiting for new homes.
