@heidiporn Have you never experienced the joys of European toilet tissue? I swear the stuff I used in Spain was actually a roll of mulberry colored crepe paper–the type you’d hang to decorate at a kid’s birthday party or liven up the high school gym for the Spring Fling. It definitely wasn’t Charmin-like.
@LaVikinga Actually, yes! Quite the variety there. Can’t remember where I was, but in one place, the TP was exactly like the paper they use a bakeries to pull individual pastries out of the case. Same size, shape, individual-sheet-dispening, and that familar crinkle!
@LaVikinga I’ve been known to take my own tp when traveling. It wasn’t horrible in Austria this past winter but I wasn’t having any distressed bowel issues either. Off to France on another ski trip this coming winter and I recall not being thrilled last time I was there.
@cinoclav I’m betting if you got a FoodSaver in one of those last fuko giveaways, it would come in mighty handy compressing and vac-sealing a few rolls of toilet paper to pack in your luggage “just in case.”
LOL Really misunderstood this! I thought at first, wow, this is a pretty good deal. Color me stupid but my first impression was that the entire set was $8! Took me back to some of the first deals I got here when I joined. On closer look… not so much!
So apparently coquelicot is the French word for poppy (thanks Google). As such, it is strongly associated with the color RED. Why are these GREY?.. “Why do you have a set of grey stuff with the word ‘red’ on it?”… Would be the first thing I would ask when I got back to the table if I was ever invited to a fancy dinner party and these were in the bathroom… Is this why I don’t get invited to dinner parties?
@Pufferfishy As someone else said - it is really a planter. You know for the fake ivy in the bathroom. Speaking of ivy I have a number of dollar tree ivy stickers, thank you a meh fuko, I could send people who plan to do this
@SoftAsFur you really wouldn’t have had to worry about your cats destroying these ceramic pieces since the awesome shipping guys/gals at meh decided that this particular ceramic didn’t require any sort of packaging material, bubble wrap, packaging peanuts-nothing in the box with the pieces, so instead of the 6 pieces that I ordered, I actually received 12 little tiny pieces… of course half of which were completely unusable and had to be discarded but not before I had the pleasure of taking the time out of my busy day to take pics to prove to these wonderful folks that their crappy packaging job did in fact result in destroyed product… I still love meh, just not too fond of the shipping department at this point… maybe I need to specifically request bubble wrap or something???
@alose I shot a note to support and they requested some photos that they could “forward to the vendor of these items” so, someone over there might get their weewee slapped. Not sure what it means for my lotion pump; I, uh, needed that for a thing I was going to do.
@vfrdirk you too huh? My 6 items came as about 12 tiny shards… when they requested pics for a refund of less than $10 I almost died! There was absolutely no bubble wrap or packaging peanuts in my box whatsoever! Just shards of ceramic! Very upsetting!!! Free shipping is great, but I do pay a monthly fee for it so it shouldn’t be cheap shipping!
