Just say you’re not interested and you look forward to hanging out with her next week.

Yeah–since she’s a  besty just tell her “look–I’m sorry but I’m not really interested in this type of jewelry and can’t see spending money on it”.  She should understand.

Ugh. I hate those parties. Seriously – hate. I’d just say thanks for the invite but you don’t really need/want any new jewelry.

It’s so much easier if you are just straight forward. “I have no interest in buying jewelry so I won’t be attending.”

My response is “Oh my, I thought we were friends” and shake my head. Really, how polite do I have to be when a “friend” is trying to profit off of me? Psht.

Flat out decline.

End of.

I would never attend one of these cash grabs, no matter who tried to coerce me into doing so.

I agree with the others “Sorry, this isn’t my style.  I hope it goes well!  I’ll see you next week.”

But seriously, just let her know that you hope it goes well, but it’s not something you’re interested in (:

I was interested in these responses too!  There is a candle party I like but the rest of them I’m always trying to make an excuse 🙁  My friends do a lot of fund raising events for their running group charity.

Just say no thanks. If she’s mad about that, it says a lot about her.

NowMrsS:  If she’s a good friend, I would just say that I am not really interested in sales parties but confirm that you’re looking forward to your standing date the next week.

NowMrsS:  If it were a sporting event you weren’t interested in and you had to pay to attend, what would your response be?
