Weekend Favourites: Ebay Essentials!

So, as promised, this week's Weekend Favourites post is all about the wonderful little gems I have found on Ebay, and their even better prices.
I don't know about you ladies, but I absolutely adore vintage and costume jewellery, and I love having a scout around charity shops to see what I can find. A lot of the high-street stores do do some lovely 'in the style of' pieces, but the drawback about those is that often, everyone else has the same things! At the end of the day, I like what I like, and I won't let other people having something stop me from getting it if I really want to, but at the same time, I love knowing that the beautiful piece of jewellery I am wearing is unique. With ebay, it's easy to find gorgeous jewellery that you are unlikely to come across anyone else wearing. Yes, there are some sellers who sell lots of each item, but even then, it's unlikely you will bump into someone on a night out who has exactly the same thing.
Now, personally, I have currently got a bit of a thing for vintage pocket watches, which you can wear on a chain around your neck. I am also a big fan of animal themed jewellery at the moment. I don't really wear silver jewellery, I'm more of a gold or bronze girl. So, with all that in mind, here is my pick of the most beautiful bits that Ebay has to offer. (You can snap each of these up for less than a pound if you're quick enough, but I have noticed that these sellers are always adding new stock anyway, most of it equally gorgeous).

I hope you all like this selection and agree that they are absolutely bargainous! For more information on any of the pieces, leave me a comment in the box below, and I will tell you what I know and how to find the item.
Sorry there aren't any silver bits in there, I just happened to save the pieces I personally would like to own while browsing on Ebay, but if you would like me to do a post focusing on silver pieces then do please let me know, as I would be more than happy to do so!

So how has everyone's weekend been? Feel free to leave me a comment, I'd love to hear your stories, or your opinions on this post!

  3. wow these are such cute little pieces! great post :)

  4. These are all gorgeous, I went through a massive ebay addiction a year or so ago, and had to cut myself off >.< (it's really sad, but the turning point was when I bought a whole load of hello kitty watches, just because they were 99p each, and none of them worked when they arrived! I still have a few littering my house :/)

    Just followed you, loving your blog!


  5. oh wow, i really love all these pieces -- especially that pocket watch! i have no idea what i'd do with a pocket watch if i ever bought one, but i like it and i must have it!
    you know, i've been seeing a lot of blog posts about how wonderful ebay is. and my mom browses it obsessively -- she says you can find great deals on high end clothes.
    i guess this is the universe's way of telling me that i need to start browsing ebay, too.
