When Etsy broke my heart

Okay so it shouldn't be a secret that I was searching Etsy for Cyber Monday deals and was
disheartened by how expensive Etsy's shipping is. I am NOT going to pay 14$ shipping for an item that costs 5$ only.

It broke my heart. If you don't know about Etsy, it's the best place to get prettiest handmade (or sometimes not really handmade too) items. Since I am not in position of spending more moolah on shipping than the real item, I'm breaking up with Etsy. But trust me I'll still end up buying some stuff from there, I can't help myself when there are pretty and sparkly things around. But for now I have said SCREW YOU to everything and me and eBay are having good times. 10 items already shipped because eBay is you bank account friendly and I love this thing about eBay! And when there's a free shipping option available, WHAT'S NOT TO LOVE!!?!!

I have 10 items shipped and 4 on my watchlist (Wait gurrrl till the next payday storms in) and I am on I-can't-wait-for-mail mode. And my top 3 favorites are on this blog post because I can't stop myself blogging about it.

Harry Pottaaaah necklace
You can't be a real fangirl until you pay for your passion. Got this beauty for 2$ only.

GIMME THIS
I don't have any amethyst jewelery. This is going to be my first and THIS IS SO FINE! And all I hope is that the ebay guys would same the exact item as the picture else I'll have trust issues with the world. Oh and this is for 3$ only. I don't mind.

Again THIS IS SO FINE!

Catch my dreams
Another dream catcher. I have one already but I want more. And I will have more. So I ordered this. This was 2.50$ only so it would have been wrong if I had left it.

That's all from my favorite list. I am still checking some Etsy (s) because I need some zines, super pretty zines actually, and some journal supplies. So if you know some good shops, let me know because my eyes hurt now.

Did you buy anything from Cyber Monday deals? Or do you use eBay?

  2. That necklace is great!!
    Unfortunately international shipping is not cheap. I used to have an Etsy shop and ultimately decided to only sell in the U.S. because international shipping was $12-$20 for items that I was selling for $5.

  3. I'm all over ebay to be honest, the bargains on there are just too good to pass up some times. I love etsy though especially for sewing things, but then i see the price and i'm like, ya i'll just make it myself!

  4. I prefer ebay and Amazon. I think the shipping and lack of sales on etsy is not worth it.

  6. Yes, it was a sad, sad day when the United States postal service raised the international shipping rates awhile back. Our shop ships international for under $10 still, but I wish it could go back to the $4 it used to be! We had our small business saturday sale and offered free shipping. Your post definitely makes me think that we need to have a free international shipping day, though! That would be awesome.
    I'm glad you've been having fun on eBay. I haven't visited there in awhile. I should probably do that, though I might get suckered into a few too many good deals! I have been on Amazon a lot for 2014, though.
    But here's something to cheer you up just a teeny bit...Shout out for you on my blog for Tuesday this week!!! ;)

  11. shipping overseas is just so flipping expensive, and then if I'm not careful, I get a not from the PO saying I have to pay more for customs or something ugh! I'm just about to send my overseas mail for xmas and it's going to break the bank a little! Oh but I LOVE Etsy I just wish there were more English sellers!
