So from time to time we run across really great places to shop or coupons. We've decided to start a new series featuring great websites, stores, and deals that we happen to see. Since we're avid shoppers we see a TON of stuff!
Today I got my daily email from Jane.com. If you've never heard of Jane.com you need to get over and check it out ASAP! Jane.com is the less craftsy version of Etsy but still on that same wavelength. Every day Jane.com features at least 50 new deals (sometimes it's over 100!) from independent sellers. I have found some of my favorite all time items at Jane.com. I especially like to use them for gift baskets for the kids (Christmas stockings, Easter baskets, Valentine's day, etc.) because the items are inexpensive (similar to the One Spot at Target), mostly high quality and super unique.
I've bought everything from baby items, to iPhone cords, to clothing from this site. Mostly I've been pretty happy. One warning, read the reviews on the seller. Some sellers aren't that great but, if you're willing to take the chance the deals can be amazing. Also, Jane.com's customer service is really great! They work on the same premise as eBay. First you try to work it out with the independent seller and if the issue can't be resolved then Jane.com's customer service team will make a final determination as to what will happen. In all of my disputed cases I've managed to work out the issue with the seller (I've only had 3 issues and I've ordered a 100+ items from the site.
Here's a small selection of some of the items that are featured (and that I've tried):
Ok, so I know, you're not supposed to buy any iPhone/iPod cable that's not specifically made by Apple. But, at $3.99 a cord for a 10ft cord in these awesome colors I couldn't help but try them out! They're AWESOME. I love my cords and they work really great! I know that sometimes these off branded cords can be duds but, I would heartily recommend at least trying a cord out from Jane.com. Repeat sellers have to have a good reputation in order to continue selling on Jane.com. So, check out the seller's past sales to be certain!
My absolute favorite category on this site! They have the cutest and most unique baby items! Most are handmade so I love buying part of my baby shower gift here (I mostly shop off of registries but I like to include one to two items that I find from Jane.com like bibs, burp cloths, blankets or hair accessories). I feel like everything I've gotten from Jane.com is so special and really well priced. These bibs were $4.99. A comparable bib at Babies R' Us is about $10 if not more.
As you can tell, I LOVE Jane.com. Hope you love them just as much! Happy shopping!
