eBay – Dangerous Waters!
June 12, 2007
LOL, not really dangerous waters, but there are so many treasures on eBay to be found! If you’ve never shopped for gemstones and beads on the world’s largest online auction site, you are in for a treat. Simply do a search on your favorite gemstone or bead name, and then get ready to browse (or shop!) for hours at a time.
A few tips….watch for seller’s feedback (check out any comments for anyone under 100% positive!), look at quality (I look for A-grade stones or better), and be sure you are getting what you think you are. If a full strand of stones are pictured, be sure you are bidding on that many, and not just one or two!!
Recently, I purchased some Apatite and Aquamarine faceted beads from a seller who resides in Thailand. I”m anxious to receive them to evaluate shipping and quality of the stones!!! I’ll report back here, because if the seller is terrific, of course I want to share!
So now I’ll just be tapping my foot waiting for FedEx to appear with my shipment. Are they here yet????
