The Freebie Fairy (My BFF) was at it again yesterday and dropped a small bag on my doorstep. Inside was:
1 box of rigatoni pasta (she's gone Paleo again)
1 pair of gloves you can still text with while wearing (Guppies didn't want so into my growing bag of consignment stuff it goes)
a set of six gold colored Kate Spade ball point pens purchased for $25.95!
(Sorry I couldn't upload a picture of them! I really tried!)
So, I gotta admit, I was curious about these pens! What made them worth almost $26?!?! Honestly from the outside of the package, they looked like regular dollar store style ballpoints painted gold. BUT, I love my paper and pens so I opened the package. And was completely disappointed! The "gold" on the outside of the pen was so slick you couldn't get a good hold on the pen to write. The quality of the ink was just "meh", nothing special. This is one I do NOT understand spending money on at all. (Thankfully I wasn't the one out the money! LOL)
The question now is....
What the heck do I do with them beside stuff them in the back of my desk drawer for those all important "I can't find a single pen in the house" emergencies?
What do you guys think? Do I try to consign these suckers? (I did use one to write a quick sentence to see how the pen wrote/felt.)
