This is becoming a reoccurring trend! My fourth eBay purchase “review” post.

View the rest here, here and here.  Well, let’s get started! Just to note, the item that was for sale is displayed on the left and the right image is a photo I took of my purchase.

Double--Ball-Necklace

Seller: wangdecheng9898 on eBay
ItemTwo Hollow Ball Crystal Pendants Long Necklace
Paid: $1.29 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 24 business days
My opinion: It broke the first few hours of wearing, but it was easily fixable with pliers and some patience. It’s a nice little necklace, and wearing it a lot lately. Gotten a few compliments. It’s worth the buck twenty nine!

Glossy-Frosting-bangle

Seller: panda-blossom on eBay
Item: Glossy Frosting bangle&bracelet Lovers Stainless Steel bangle
Paid: $10.75 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 14 business days
My opinion: It’s a pretty cute bracelet. It’s difficult finding bracelets small enough to fit me, which is annoying. So this fits about average sized wrists.

bubble-bracelet

Seller: china.seller16888 on eBay
Item: Fashion Charm Style Friendship Bangle Contractile Bracelet
Paid: $6.99 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 12 business days
My opinion: It ended up being so much larger in person that I had imagined. I love the way it looks on my arm, but I can definitely see the silver “chipping off” with time.

turquoise-bracelet

Seller: shopdashingdaisy on eBay
ItemDesigner Style Silver Cable Turquoise Stone Thin Cuff Bracelet
Paid: $16.99 + $7.00 shipping. Worth the price? No
Location: United States
Delivery: 9 business days
My opinion: Apparently this is a knock-off David Yurman bracelet. I only noticed after I had purchased it. So that’s pretty decent, for $25. However, since I have tiny wrists this isn’t the most ideal bracelet. While it’s great looking on the arm, it “flips” over making the turquoise on the bottom of the wrist. I’d rather it stay in place. I don’t think I’d pay the price again if I had the time back.

 claw-ring

Seller: topitem.hsl on eBay
Item: Retro Style Punk Eagle Bird Claw Talon Ring
Paid: $0.99 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: United States
Delivery: 13 business days
My opinion: I have pretty narrow fingers and this ring fit on my pinky. Thankfully with a little work, I ended up bending it to fit my middle finger or pointer. It’s cute, but it’s hard to style, I find!

pump-dispenser

Seller: WhiteBear-2008 on eBay
Item: 2 Pump Dispenser Nail Art Acetone Polsh Makeup Remover
Paid: $3.19 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: Hong Kong
Delivery: 10 business days
My opinion: Been waiting for one of these for ages! Love the convenience of a pump dispenser. Just wanted it to close a little more tightly in case it tipped over. But other than that, it was a good buy.

racer-back

Seller: Bigkeyboard on eBay
Item: Basic women’s solid tank top racer back
Paid: $3.69 + free shipping. Worth the price?Yes
Location: China
Delivery: 9 business days
My opinion: The reason I got this was because I’m in need of a few cami’s, and I only like to buy mine from Forever 21, since they’re so inexpensive at $3.80 a pop.

hair-donut

Seller: Bigkeyboard on eBay
Item: Hair bun ring donut
Paid: $1.39 + free shipping. Worth the price? Yes
Location: China
Delivery:9 business days 
My opinion: Upon opening the donut looked like there were a few droplets of oil on it. I soaked it all up for a few days in tissues and used it in my hair. Works just as well as a sock, but this comes in 3 different sizes for whatever your preference may be.

50% off at Three Bird Nest!

Remember my Etsy rave back in August, about Three Bird Nest? A few people have e-mailed me since then asking if there was the 15% discount code that they could use. I didn’t realize it was only one person could use it.

But I found out on twitter this morning that once Three Bird Nest reaches 10k likes on Facebook that she’s going to have 50% off her entire shop! It’s getting pretty close, she’s at 9,704 last time I checked.

Like Three Bird Nest on Facebook, so we can all get 50% off soon! There’s so many cute things on her Etsy store. If I had a niece instead of 4 nephews, I could’ve bought some adorable ballerina gift ideas. But I don’t. So I’ll just shop for myself. ;)
