Tuesday's Talkin' - Today, it's another Hand Picked List RAVE!

I've blogged before about my admiration of the idea of "Hand Picked Lists" on Bonanzle.com because they epitomize so many different positive ideals. This is one of the things that enthralls me so at Bonanzle - the community there is very strong!

Of course, serious Bonanzlers are well aware that those positive ideals are all over the place in great abundance at

The idea for
Hand Picked Lists (AKA "HPLs") is that one user on Bonanzle.com names and creates a list, selects 20 items from other sellers' inventory based on their theme. They give it a title such as "Azure Skies", or "Pendants that POP!" and shop the inventory of Bonanzle, selecting other sellers' items to complete their lists. A minimum of 15 items is required for a completed list. Twenty items are required to selected for placement on Bonanzle's home page.

When you land on the home page, you will see one of the lists at the top of the page. Shown below is one of my personal favorites by someone who may well be The Queen of the Hand Picked List:

Of course, that's just MY opinion, I could be wrong......but I do not think I am. ECB has The Touch!

Granted, the format that Our Boyz**
created for the HPL really makes any list look fabulous but this one - well, that's just a jaw-dropper! Luscious, elegant, absolutely stunning! This is only one of many that ECB has created.

ECB's lists show up regularly on the home page and almost always pepper the "Top Rated" because of this, no doubt. I believe that this was The One that originally made me start watching for her HPLs.
Then I see this one titled "Save me A Seat" and I'm hooked. It has a very special quality - proves beyond a doubt that this is someone with a fine eye for - OK - sorry, no apologies for the pun, Eye Catching Beauty! It's obvious that we have a champion HPL creator here. ECB is definitely not the only great HPL creator but she's very obviously really "got it down" to a fine art!

This one is called "Charcoal".

I could go on and on and on but do not think that I am going to ignore yet a few more notable lists!

The next one features exquisite carnival glass and was created by rjmjstuff and is titled "Come to the Carnival".
The selections of fine Carnival glass available on Bonanzle is extra fine, eh? Go shopping for it NOW! You will clearly see that rjmjstuff found some of the very best items being offered for this great list!

If militaria is your thing, I found this superb list featuring wonderful vintage militaria created by basingater1.
Titled "Military Memories" is spans memorabilia dating from Civil War all the way up to the current Iraq "situation".

I could go on and on but I really need to get some actual work done today. So, here are some more lists that I think you might enjoy. Don't forget - check out the listings of those folks who CREATED the lists to reward them for their generosity of spirit!
