    That is a great point. They are definitely sales events. I have turned down the last 4 invitations to "parties" and started feeling guilty. So I agreed to host one. I do love the products (It's 31), but I don't want my friends to feel pressured.

    It is definitely awkward for me to invite friends to a "party." But I was wondering if I was the only one. If we all feel the same way, I wonder why these business continue to increase.

    I appreciate that you took the time to go through each of the potential parties. The jewelry ones seem to have become really popular in Illinois in the last few years.

    Thankfully I have never been to one where the hostess used those techniques. That is crazy!!

    I think you're right. Parties are not convenient for a lot of people. When we need something it is so much simpler (and usually cheaper) to hop on the internet and order it or run out to the store and pick it up. Thank you for your perspective.

    I'm sorry for your experience. I was guessing the responses to the question would be similar and you confirmed it. I don't understand why they are so popular.

    Since writing this question it seems like half if my friends are now consultants for some company or another. Most of the things they sell I really like, but it's just too much stuff and too much money. Thanks for your answer.

    Thanks for sharing your opinion! I also like a few of the Pampered Chef items. I am surprised that no one has commented saying they are a consultant.

    You are the first one to be pro-party! I kept thinking there had to be some people who enjoyed them. Thank you for answering!

    Thank you for your perspective CynthiAnn! I'm so glad you enjoy the parties. The one good thing about eParties is that you don't feel any pressure to buy things :). But it does defeat the purpose of a girls' night.
