Location: United States
Delivery: 8 business days
My opinion: What can I say? It’s a toothbrush. It works well, and it’s the perfect size for traveling. I’m not sure that I’d pay the $20 for if I had my time back though, the brush head is small.

Seller: michael-dan on eBay
Item: Rose Gold Plated titanium steel Bracelet
Paid: $19.00 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 12 business days
My opinion: This is such a gorgeous piece, and actually a knock-off of a higher brand name. I’m not sure who? Michael Kors I know makes one too. The bracelet has an engraving that says “Cartier” on it, but of course it’s not real. As soon as I opened the box it came in, it looked like a child sized bracelet and I thought it wouldn’t fit my 5-inch-something wrists (I have petite wrists). Thankfully it did and it’s amazing quality. It feels like it’s got some weight to it, and the edges don’t rub on my wrist at all. If I knew anyone who would love this bracelet as much as I do, I’d buy it for them for next Christmas! I’ve been wearing this non-stop and getting tons of compliments on it, each time I wear it.

Seller: mckalaur on eBay
Item: 5 PRADA Shielding Lip Balm SPF 15
Paid: $12.99 + $3.00 shipping. Worth the price? No

Location: United States
Delivery: 5 business days – incredibly fast shipping
My opinion: These lip balms are so miniature, but for a person who doesn’t wear much lip products on a daily basis, this is a nice luxurious touch to add into my handbag. The lipbalm itself is very buttery on your lips, and it has a slight tint to it. Very nice!

Seller: ticticcompany on eBay
Item: Ladies jumbo metallic designer rose gold watch
Paid: $17.49 + $4.00 shipping. Worth the price?
Location: United States
Delivery: 9 business days.
My opinion: As soon as I took the watch out of its wrapping, I first noticed the size of the face. That thing was huge! The sound that the watch made when it was off my wrist was also notable, as it sounded quite cheap. But that’s what I get for a $20 watch. The face itself is quite nice and doesn’t look inexpensive. I had to get  a few links removed from the watch as it was ginormous as every watch is, before you get it sized. But I’ve been wearing it nearly ever day since I got it. I fooled my co-worker and she actually thought it was one of my many Fossil watches. Until I told her I got it on Ebay! I gave it 3/5 stars because of the quality. I feel like it’s not going to last. But it still looks nice.

Item: New Tough Genuine Leather Brown Removable Mens Womens Wallet purse a68160 NWT
Paid: $28.96 + $5.99 shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 17 business days
My opinion: Smells like real leather, parents said it was real lol! It’s so very soft to the touch, too. I bought this during the summer but decided to wait until now because it was a Christmas present. Yes, I shop that early on in the year. My Mom received this wallet part of her Christmas present so I couldn’t post it until now.

Paid: $3.85 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes

My opinion: For $4, you get a Longchamp knock-off nylon bag! It’s completely only worth the $4 though, as it’s dollar-store quality.

  1. Did you take the links out of your watch or have someone do it? I ask because I recently got a “lookalike” from Amazon. The watch is ENORMOUS! But…I can’t figure out how to remove the links! help!

    Nancy says: Hey Jill, I have really tiny wrists so I must get them taken out. Some places (like Fossil stores for instance) take the links out when you purchase them in store. But as for me, buying online – I bring them to a department store (Sears is the one I go to, but that’s not in the USA) that “installs” batteries for clocks, watches and so-on. It costs about $6.00 for the links to be removed.
