The 1st Vintage Ebay Deals Post out of many to come [think nina ricci, martin margiela, dries van noten... ]

*updated* I added 3 new clothing items as of today, June 9th

As promised. This is the first "ebay post" out of many to come-- there's things that are really low (like 9.99) and and nothing over $75. It's a whole mess of vintage and vegan items [good deals on things like... nina ricci, martin margiela, dries van noten...] and some cute vintage swimsuits and dresses. To see why vintage- and ebay- is such a positive thing-- and environmentally thoughtful-- see this post here. [3rd section]

There's also two items I've got my eye on...and being the hoarding little girl that I am, I'm not posting those ...yet...I mean I'll add them later if the price gets way beyond my control. But I'm keeping an eye on them for now... ;)

Of course, ebay transactions can always be very troublesome...for instance, I won this gorgeous Tsumori Chisato bag, and my dad handled the correspondence-- I used his account after all-- and the london seller, "merrison2006", basically decided to be -- is there a nice word for jerk?-- and not only was rude and unprofessional in exchanging emails, but "lost" the bag, and refused to even find out where it was for us...leading us to believe he didn't ship out the bag in the first place...which is pretty plausible seeing as I won it for like $60 total... anyway I was SO heartbroken to not get the bag (which was also not leather...which was perfect for me)... in any case, always be careful when doing ebay transactions... you get good sellers and bad sellers.

In any case, my future ebay posts- will be shorter. I just thought the first one should be special! [plus a lot of bookmarked ones already ended when I decided to post] Without further ado, see the below for my vintage ebay picks and if you actually decide to purchase a piece, do tell! :)

Each photo lists the time it's ending, the size, and the current price.

Sweet Stuff

The Best Summer Suits- wild and tame.

I've got my eye on...Instant Gratification

[the vintage margiela is such a good deal...]

and...this one tsumori chisato bag [all cotton]
which is...$580.

Vintage (1 new and rest used)-
good for the environment, all cute.

Also very exciting-- which deserves its own section-- are these vivenne westwood rocking horse shoes from the early 90's. Of course...these are selling on ebay for like...$350 or something. However, if you type in "rocking horse" and look in the shoes category--- checking the box for searching in description as well-- you will find many shoes especially in the "buy it now" section...which are say... kind of knock offs. or some styles are "inspired"... but still...for the fashion crazies... with shipping, those styles, below are about $50 I think.

The Real Deal

Knock Knock.

Who's There? A lot of shoes, it turns out!

Wow, you found great stuff here! I am so sorry about that bad seller, at least I hope you get your $$ back. E-bay is such a big shop! and so eco-friendly all the vintage thing. great post;)!

Wow, great stuff you found. I'm sorry to know about that bad seller.
I've never bought at Ebay, people always say me that it's great, and I agree, but I've had some problems with others on-line shops, that I'm afraid. You know I live in a small island... things get here more difficulty.
Sometimes I don't know what to do.
I like those eco things, since I'm vegetarian I'm always trying to see eco-friendly things.
Loved your post.

Oh my goodness, this is such a great post! I can't believe how cheap that Prada handbag is going for so far!! And love the Nina Ricca sunnies. I can never seem to find great things like these.

I had a similar problem with ebay. Basically it was fraud. I bought a 'buy it now' Kate Moss dress and paid straight away as instructed They then 'disappeared' from ebay and ran off with my £100! Luckily paypal refunded me! It's really put me off though, I am really suspicious now! And I was selling but i've been put off doing that too because someone claimed not to recieve an item and I had proof of postage yet they were still able to leave me bad feedback, this could not be removed.

Thank you for your lovely comment by the way! Really love your blog xx
