You're probably thinking shopping advice from a man? This has got to be good, really good. Yeah, I can feel the sarcasm but it's true, I have uncovered a little shopping secret that could save you thousands of dollars.  What if I told you this "store" allowed you to name the price you're willing to pay? Sounds too good to be true doesn't it? Well it's all true. The items are for real and best of all they are all supported by local merchants.

What makes this shopping opportunity even better for you is that you don't have to get into your car, put on make up or even wear pants if you don't want to. You can shop from where you're sitting and still save tons of cash. If you ask me, this is the perfect way to handle Christmas shopping, no crowds, no lines, no crazy gimmicks, and you're naming the price you're willing to pay.

So, what is the amazing shopping secret? It's the Fall Auction and you can click the link or look in the What's Hot in Lafayette bar at the top of this page.

Let's take a look at some of the auction items that you can bid on and buy. For the guys there is a Harley Davidson Motorcycle, a Honda TRX420 Four Wheeler, and some really great golf and fishing excursions. For the ladies, you can bid-on and buy a myriad of spa and beauty treatments, there is furniture and jewelry on the auction too. For the family there is fine dining, casual dining, automotive services and so much more.

I suggest you take some time over the next day or so while the auction is in preview mode to go and peruse all the items that are available to you. This way you can build your game plan for when the auction goes live October 6th. Remember the items will be sold to the highest bidder and chances are you will still be paying pennies on the dollar just in time for Christmas.
