I love jewelry. Two summers ago my big kids and I bought over 2000 pieces of jewelry on eBay – pearl necklaces, bracelets, earrings and rings; bracelets from Tibet, earrings and bracelets from Peru and much more. We had a blast deciding what to buy and waiting for the packages. We sold some stuff, discovered other to be junk and used quite a lot for Bat Mitzvah and other presents. It turned out to be a good investment – we’ve more than made back what we spent AND we still have tons of jewelry left… and with four girls in the house, there are plenty of people to wear the jewelry too. I plan to write a guide to buying on eBay, since I think I’ve gotten pretty good at it, but for now you’ll have to settle for this tip.
Trader Lou, Merchant Adventurer (that’s what it says on the site) is a really cool shop. They’ve got a wide variety of sterling silver jewelry at totally affordable prices and they ship worldwide for free…
The Bellisima Cinderella pendant on the right runs $28.53, including international shipping.
By the way, Trader Lou doesn’t only have jewelry. They’ve also got gemstones, beads, shoes, handbags and other items. You can sign up to the newsletter to get information about sales or specials. Enjoy!
