a bargainista's reveal!

I haven't given the sales much of my attention yet but I do have an amazing bargain to share with you. In Summertime I think the straw bag has become something of a signature item for me. As they are neutral and go with everything I seem to have accrued quite a selection. I've been obsessed with the Cult Gaia one and did contemplate buying one full price (here). However since I owned one of this style of bags 30 odd years ago I couldn't bear to part with £100 plus for one. So instead I went on the hunt to see if I could find a cheaper alternative and sure enough I did. £38.99 including post & packaging.

My first port of call was Esty but when I noticed the delivery was 2-3 weeks and my gut feeling was that these were being sourced from China. So I turned my attention to eBay where sure enough I found one. On Esty they were £68 plus P&P so I was delighted to find a cheaper alternative on eBay even though I had to wait 2 weeks for it to arrive (I ordered it on 6th June, it arrived on the 21st). It came in a box, had been packaged well so it arrived in perfect condition via Tracked Royal Mail. I shall be leaving the seller 5 star feedback so you can buy with confidence. I would get in quick as there aren't many left!

Here I am sporting it yesterday with one of  my Mango dresses that is now really well reduced in the sale! ;o)

It's a short and sweet one today but as you know I do love to share a great bargain!

Has anyone else had a lot of eBay success when ordering stuff from China? I would love to hear!

Back again soon.....it is about time I tackled those sales!
