eBay shop of the month

As I am on an enforced spending hiatus, I have not been feeling particularly inspired in the blogging way. As a result, I’ve been forced to steal an idea from Fashion Me Fabulous, and start an ‘eBay store of the week’ feature. Only, it will probably be a monthly item instead.

This month, I’ll be featuring 2 stores, as one is based in the US, and us poor UK based shoppers have to content with ridiculous shipping charges. Celebrity Owned is an eBay shop that specialises in designer gear, which they assert, has been pre-owned by a celebrity of some sort. Fortunately, one does not have to pay for the item’s exclusive pedigree, because, well, who cares? All the clothing and accessories have been reduced to a reasonable second-hand level. I bought a Jessica Kagan Cushman scrimshaw bangle, with an ode to my favourite bad film, Mommy Dearest. “No wire hangers ever!” is emblazoned across the ivory coloured bangle. The bracelet shipped quickly and safely, and I was generally quite pleased with the transaction.

The other shop I thought I’d highlight is the Kaibiri Jewellery eBay store, which features gorgeous items by the likes of CC Skye, Alexis Bittar, Kenneth Jay Lane, and Ben Amun. They never sell items with buy-it-now prices, so competition is fierce, but one can still walk away with a bargain or two. Be sure to sign up for their eBay store newsletter so you can be the first to see highlights of new merchandise.
