Accessory Auctions

I wanted to let you all in on what I do every Monday night (besides watching the Bachelor of course)! I participate in an online auction via facebook. Let me tell you, it is the most exhilarating experience ever. It is open to anyone who has a facebook account.

Here is how it works. You have to search "Accessory Auctions" in the facebook tool bar. Then you have to like their page. After that, you will be notified of their upcoming auctions and they will preview the items up for sale. The auctions are held at 8pm every Monday night. At 8pm you go to their facebook page and they begin posting various sorts of things including earrings, necklaces, rings, scarves, handbags, etc. They always list the quantity and the price of the item so you know that before you bid. If you want a particular item you post "SOLD and your email address." Usually you can tell whether you won the item or not based on the number of responses to that post. BEWARE, items tend to sell out within a minute. Hence, you have to be very fast at typing "Sold" when they post an item. They usually will not post a new item until the previous one sells out. However, if it has not sold out within 5 minutes, they will go ahead and post a new item. The trick to getting what you want is to keep pressing the refresh button on your computer so you know exactly when the next item is posted. Once the auction is over, the person in charge of Accessory Auctions sends you an invoice that you pay on paypal right away. If you do not pay your invoice right away, they will give the item to the next bidder.

I had to let you know about this because they have such cute stuff at very reasonable prices. Often times, they have earrings that are almost exact replicas of Kendra Scott's earrings, only these are half the price. Anyways, the girls who run this company are brilliant. They are well organized and send you your purchases right away. Here is my most recent purchase and I love them!
