I have been getting into ebay a lot more lately.  Ever since I bought my very treasured Proenza Schoulder Orchid Keep All from ebay and had a great experience with a great seller (who happened to be a blog reader too!  Thanks S!) I've been keeping my eye out for fun new things.  I don't tend to buy clothes because I don't know how things will fit and most ebay sellers don't take returns so I always look for accessories and boy are there some good deals to be found!  I got this wallet for about 50% off and it was still brand new with tags.  The best thing that I've found is to be as specific as you can to find what you want.  Like I knew I wanted a new clutch but typing in "clutch" I get too many styles that I wasn't interested in so I narrowed it down to "animal print clutch" and was able to find this adorable clutch/wallet.  My secret these days is when I spot something at a store that I like, I do a quick search on ebay for it first.  Often times it shows up.  Sometimes the price is better and sometimes it isn't but it's always worth checking!

From the new to the hard to find, when it’s on your mind, it’s on eBay.

  4. How do you insure that the products you're buying are real?? There's a lot of fakes out there today with tags and everything...that just makes me worry.

    1. If I'm buying a high end designer item, I rely on the girls at the Purse Forum. Like in the Chanel threads you can find an "authenticate this" thread and post the ebay auction and the girls there who are pretty much experts and take these very seriously will tell you if it's authentic, if they need more pictures, etc... And also of course, seller feedback is a good indication of that and I like to see what else the seller is selling and if they've sold that item before. Like if a seller has sold a Chanel bag and then they relist that same Chanel bag, I'm a bit skeptical because nobody would really have 2 of the same bags to sell over and over again (unless it was because of a non paying bidder) It definitely is hard to know and I'm very cautious of it myself but if you aren't buying high end designer items, you can find great deals on there.

  7. I have been considering buying a Chanel WOC from a reseller on eBay but have been so nervous! What luck your reseller happened to be a reader! Have you had any other eBay experience?

    1. I know! Imagine my surprise when I paid for the invoice and the seller told me that she reads my blog! :) Small internet world. haha. Make sure to check the Chanel "authenticate this" thread on the Purse Forum. THose girls really know their stuff and can authenticate it for you and even let you know if it's a reputable seller.

      A few years ago I got burned by a pair of YSL tributes. The seller claimed that they bought them from the YSL store and the pictures looked great. When I got them though, the smell of the cheap leather/rubber of the shoes took over my house and I knew they were fake :( I was so sad, I didn't even know they made fake shoes! After that I learned my lesson to really check seller feedback and then I discovered the Purse Forum's authenticate this threads. I haven't bought anything designer since the PS Keep All but I have my eye on a few vintage Chanel bags.
