Boutique Bargains: The New Flash Sale

Within the last week, I have seen at least 3 sites that offer a hot jewelry deal from a boutique. Have you noticed this trend? It is like Groupon and Etsy had a love child.

Here are the deals I have recently seen, all of which I would purchase in a second if I had an unlimited budget and wasn’t considering rehab for my shopping addiction:

Gold Monogram Necklace- $40 from Glam Grab
J. Crew-inspired Bubble Necklace- $14.99 from Simple Addiction
Nautical Gold Chain Suede Bracelet- $7.99 from Very Jane

I bought the bracelet above today in White, mainly because I need a gold stackable bracelet and I figured out how to make this one “adjustable” (tie knots in the suede). They accept credit card (no Paypal, which seems odd to me) and shipping was only $2. When I was in the corporate world, I refused to wear bracelets. Typing with a bangle? More annoying than too-small thong underwear.

Here are the sites that offer some sweet items:

Glam Grab

Simple Addiction

Very Jane


The easiest way to find out about all the deals is to like them on Facebook and their deals will show up in your stream; that way your e-mail in box doesn’t get clogged up with offers.

Any other similar sites you love? Let me know!

    Bought the JCrew inspired necklace from simple addiction… absolutely awful!! Looks nothing like the picture, took over a month to be delivered and is broken and falling apart. WORST ONLINE PURCHASE EVER! definitely a BARGAIN!

      Ugh, how horribly frustrating! I meant to update this, so thanks for posting your experience. I received the bracelet that I ordered and the chain was more plastic-y than metal. I have seen a LOT of issues with these sites lately in terms of quality and shipping time. I am always looking for the best, latest, greatest deal and agree…this doesn't seem to be it!
