    Orange, CA Off 5th (The Block at the Orange)

    Hey folks,

    Just wanted to spread the wealth. Usually the CCO at The Block has nothing (as many of you well know), but I just went and they were sorting through a big ass shipment. Found Moth Brown, Deckchair, Coco, and Provence there.

    Get them while they're hot!

    -T.

    Orange, CA Off 5th (The Block at the Orange)

    Nothing much there, I got another 239 brush and a BB lipstick holder. I was talking to the Manager and she said the 187 brush was in her catalog and that she had ordered some. She said she was not sure if they would come in or not its kind os a hit and miss on what they get, even if they place an order for an item. She knows one of the other CCO's had them for 29.50!! She told me to come back and check around the 12th of next month!

    Which CCO did you go to? I'm local and the only one that I know is at The Block, Off 5th I think.

    Re: Orange, CA Off 5th (The Block at the Orange)

    I just went there yesterday and got "Mancatcher"...nomore aquavert or waternymph like I had hoped.

    The girl there did say to check back by July 15th which is when they'll have the shipment come in.

    I do have to say that the "kids"/MAs who work there really were rude, unnecessarily. Maybe, the next time, I shouldn't be polite and actually get the manager and inform her/him of the rudeness problem.

    One of the MAs actually yelled at me as I was walking away from the cashier after having paid, "MAM, you didn't pay for these!" in a very loud rude way in front of a bunch of people. I went back to her and showed her the receipt (I don't understand why she thought I didn't pay since I paid right in front of her 5 seconds before she yelled. After she found out that she was wrong, SHE NEVER SAID SORRY! Plus, they all talk to you as if you shouldn't be there. Just because I'm not wearing makeup, etc, at the time, it doesn't mean that I"m not interested in makeup!

    things are about 20 - 30% off of reg. price

    eyeshadows I believe are 10 or 10.50
    fluidliners are 11.50
    no clue on the other stuff off hand... but they are all about 25 - 30% off of the price in store.. also before you go call them up and ask them when the shipment is coming in... cause you dont want to drive all the way out there and then find they have almost nothing (1 - 2 days after the shipment is unloaded is the best time to go)

    Re: Orange, CA Off 5th (The Block at the Orange)

    Thank you for suggestion!! I called them in today first thing in the morning..hahah i couldnt wait!! The sales girl sounds rather bitchy to me..sigh...I asked her if they're well stocked today, cause I live kinda far away from them and she said "well...I cant really tell you on the phone, cause I cant put stuff on hold" with kinda impatience and I'm too good for you tone..I was like...ok...But then I told her..I dont need you to put anything on hold..I just dont wanna go there and find nothing at all...so there u go..i guess i just need to go down there and check it myself....*counting my luck and crossing my fingers*
    ...so future haul pictures?!! ...or NOT hahahah we'll see!!
