MK " pie lady " September 15, 2012 at 12:10 pm 9 years ago The walls look like “over-the-door” shoe holders! I might have to get some of those to use up here in Benton! NoMo MK September 1, 2012 at 6:40 am 9 years ago I’ll tell you what it DOESN’T look like, it doesn’t look like a room in the home of someone who makes an executive level income!!! What’s with that tv and crappy furniture?!?! MLM Radar Detector September 1, 2012 at 9:37 am 9 years ago When the credit card bill had to be paid, the nice furniture and fixtures were easier to sell than the MK “full store.” JOB4me2 September 2, 2012 at 4:01 am 9 years ago Hahahahahahaha! Deflated Pink Bubble September 1, 2012 at 8:12 am 9 years ago “A perfectly good example of wasted space!” That could be a really nice room and it’s being used as a store room for old Mary Kay product. Look at all the Signature stuff on there.. Lots hot pink boxes.. and White Time Wise boxes.. So much outdated product. I’d bet she’s really proud of this room too… flyinghigh September 1, 2012 at 9:34 am 9 years ago I was wondering when this was taken… flyinghigh September 1, 2012 at 9:39 am 9 years ago My caption is: “Been there, done that.” Felt so great to get rid of it all and have my house back!!! Along with my time, my money, and well basically, my life!!! Kittycatt September 1, 2012 at 9:54 am 9 years ago “Wouldn’t you like to have a room like this in your basement?” Just think, this is the room where she probably takes all her new recruits and convinces them that this is glamorous. That all those products sitting there are a GOOD thing and something to be proud of. Mi Ki September 1, 2012 at 10:06 am 9 years ago Hmmm. No books, no photos, no artwork, no music, no toys, no pet toys, no pets, no sporting equipment, no newspapers, no magazines, no way to sit down with even one friend, no coat, no fire, no men’s socks strewn around, no coffee cup, no crossword puzzles, no sudoku, no work boots, no tennis shoes, no handmade valentines, no signs of love. My caption is “The gas Emmkeh-Kozmetik seeps into the holes in the prisoner’s life and will do its work within fourteen hours.” enorth September 1, 2012 at 10:46 am 9 years ago “My Suck-cess Center” chopperdaddy September 20, 2012 at 10:32 am 9 years ago bingo. gladitsnotjustme September 1, 2012 at 11:39 am 9 years ago The rest of the stuff needs to go in the fireplace, too. gotheart September 1, 2012 at 11:39 am 9 years ago Products do NOT fly off the shelves. chopperdaddy September 20, 2012 at 10:31 am 9 years ago *except in the event of an earthquake. PinkPhoenix September 1, 2012 at 8:07 pm 9 years ago I don’t think it’s a good idea to store inventory in a room with two giant heat lamps. NeverWasPink September 1, 2012 at 8:26 pm 9 years ago Oh yeah, I wanna go get “pampered” down in here… bellaone September 1, 2012 at 9:42 pm 9 years ago “I finally kicked my son out of the basement so I could have my very own Mary Kay Room! Here dreams are built! Yes, the walls are actually mattresses (the stained side not showing, darn that son of mine, so like his father) but in this space, MY space, my dream of NSD will come true!” JOB4me2 September 2, 2012 at 4:10 am 9 years ago “When’s my next “Love Check”? I don’t mind saying that I don’t get this room. Basements usually don’t have a fireplace with a hearth, but who partitions their living room like that. Bookshelves on the fireplace? And what the heck are the “walls” made of? Weird. Lynn September 2, 2012 at 5:07 am 9 years ago “Grandma, you know that antique doll collection you used to have in the basement? Well the bad news is, I sold them. But the GOOD news is what’s in there now will really make us RICH!!” mitdemherz September 3, 2012 at 6:52 am 9 years ago The way you wrote this made me think of Jack and the Beanstalk. At least Jack and the Beanstalk panned out though. Pretty sad when fairytales are more successful than reality. Mi Ki September 2, 2012 at 8:24 am 9 years ago It’s all so impossibly sad. Most women would shy away from spontaneously renting an empty storefront in their town and filling it with products from major brands; they’d know that “Josie’s Makeup Store” might not do well enough to carry on. And that’s on Main Street, in the middle of town!! With wonderful, enduring brands! How is it that so many of these same women imagine that calling some bunker beneath their homes “Josie’s Makeup Store” is going to make for *better* outcomes? There’s no doubt that MK plays on women’s shame, with peculiar strands of greed and arrogance braided in. But MLMs make their plays on what our values are. If they sniff that we can be made to value endless opportunism and tawdry display, they’ll jump on it. And let’s not forget that some of the very same creatures manipulating and abusing women in Mary Kay have also got tentacles in the non-MLM world. Our power comes in NOT valuing that tripe–in NOT making our every action, our every thought, revolve around getting or spending. MLM Radar Detector September 2, 2012 at 12:22 pm 9 years ago What’s even sadder is that MK encourages Josie to overload her basement shelves with MK makeup, but absolutely refuses to let her rent an empty storefront on the next street and display that merchandise for sale to the public. If this truly was “Josie’s own business” shouldn’t she be able to do that? Mi Ki September 3, 2012 at 12:20 pm 9 years ago Absolutely, MLM Radar Detector. It’s like we’d had a conspiracy of thieves ready to take advantage of people’s desires for home ownership–and parallel sets of thieves have now evolved, taking advantage of people’s desires for business ownership. In both cases real “ownership” is a total mirage. Flaming go September 2, 2012 at 11:20 am 9 years ago One chair. Either the consultant doesn’t expect any customers, or this is some kind of twisted Mary Kay torture chamber. “SIGN THE AGREEMENT OR YOU”LL BE GETTING TIMEWISE IN YOUR EYES NEXT, SALLY!” morniingstar September 2, 2012 at 1:13 pm 9 years ago This is timely. Thanks to many people at PT I cleared out all MK inventory and gave it to charity last week! It is sooo exciting to have space back. Did not have too much, but still is crud in the basement. Again, ladies take your house back, if you stay in MK let corporate be YOUR distributor, as said before, let thme hold your inventory! o2b143 September 2, 2012 at 3:09 pm 9 years ago ‘Padded walls makes the head banging more bearable!’ pinksallout September 2, 2012 at 6:55 pm 9 years ago “I could have redecorated but bought inventory instead”. Puke. Makes me think of the many times I ‘found a way, made a way’ to order more product instead of doing something to benefit my family or home. gotheart September 3, 2012 at 9:08 am 9 years ago Puke. Makes me think of the many times I ‘found a way, made a way’ to order more product instead of doing something to benefit my family or home. Me too pinksallout.. Puke. Nelope September 3, 2012 at 5:26 pm 9 years ago If Henry David Thoreau were a Mary Kay lady, this would be what his cabin at Walden looked like. lilbunny September 4, 2012 at 4:33 pm 9 years ago it puts the timewise on its skin, or else it gets the hose again… NeverWasPink September 5, 2012 at 8:10 pm 9 years ago okay, lilbunny wins!! 😀 haha, best one ever! mkcnotforme September 5, 2012 at 9:03 pm 9 years ago Yes, Lilbunny’s is the best! lilbunny September 8, 2012 at 10:04 pm 9 years ago LOL! I’m flattered! 😀 NeverWasPink September 8, 2012 at 10:59 pm 9 years ago Yay! AND, your prize is… *drumroll*.. any one item you like from those shelves! Fine, fine, or the tv.. anything you like 😀 lilbunny September 9, 2012 at 4:38 pm 9 years ago Hmmm…I think I’ll have to go with those super chic lighting fixtures! Retro is soooo in you know. LOL! C_Personality September 14, 2012 at 2:36 am 9 years ago Hey! I used to have a basement JUST like that! No Pink For Me October 6, 2018 at 2:37 am 3 years ago It’s where dreams go to die.
