It was probably during that long period of time that I was hardly online.
I was during that time, unfortunately. I also didn't know you were looking for one, so I didn't know to tell you. Lori has a lot of toys she doesn't want and in the past she actually sent them all (at her own expense) to Sangsara in Canada!
Well, when she needed money to go to CatCon, she decided to sell and posted on Twitter and Facebook, but I was the only one, I think, who responded. I didn't save the email with her list of some of the items for sale, but I can ask her for an updated list, OR you can email her, tell her I've recommended her to you.
She's a sweetheart and she is doing a photography project that requires some start-up money, so I am sure she would be glad to sell more stuff. If you prefer to go through me, that's no problem, I will let you know whenever she tells me what she has available and I can ask about items you're looking for.
She is stopping her giveaways because of her disgust with the hatefulness, backstabbing and unethical behavior of many of the review blogger community - especially the Twitter cliques. She wants to focus more on other things and I don't blame her. You know, a bunch of the bloggers would enter her giveaways (she did one a day for like two months!) multiple times under different pseudonyms! She also believes (as do I) that many were fixing the results of their own giveaways to let friends win. Basically, there is a lot of scamming or gaming the system, so to speak, and now the companies are getting fed up with what looks to them as people just trying to get free stuff and then selling it for profit...and without even doing a decent review. Changes are coming down the pike as far as companies now planning on requiring signed contracts with them for getting review items (I know Bad Dragon already requires them to agree to not sell their free review items -- and yet one I know of sells hers on their own forum!). And they are going to get picky about how much they send and to whom they will send things based on whomever they think does a decent job. So this means she will not be having as many items to sell in the future, but you never know because so many of the companies love her and send her all their new items.
