it may not surprise you to learn that i buy a lot of stuff on the internet. i’m always on the internet anyway, and shopping online means i don’t have to go anywhere. here’s a list of some things i buy online, with links to my favorite places to find them. *
off melrose has a ton of great stuff. they add new items every day, which is sad because i always find something i want that i can’t quite afford. shipping’s a little pricey, but it’s really fast. the measurements are accurate, too; every single thing i’ve purchased fits perfectly.
u.s. plastic corp
i say “plastic stuff” because i can’t think of a better term, and hey, that’s what they sell. they’ve got good prices on blank cd cases, and i keep all my beads and jewelry supplies in these little jars. also, plastic baggies!
i’ll admit that i don’t own one of cinnamon’s purses. but i saw a few that she had with her at sxsw, and i saw her make one on tv. she obviously puts a lot of thought into her designs; her purses are both pretty and useful.
i use a hand-me-down mach 3 razor that andy gave me a few years ago. the blades are pretty expensive at the store, but they’re super-cheap on ebay.
wrap with us
we’ve all needed organza ribbon at one time or another, am i right? (no.) anyhow, if you ever do find yourself in desperate need of some good organza, this is the place for it. they’ve also got a lot of wedding paraphernalia, if you’re into that sort of thing.
i don’t think anyone else makes matching legwarmers and hats. ariel’s are great, though. i bought a set last year, and i love them. they came wrapped in the coolest tissue paper i’ve ever seen.
1. none of these stores are paying me to link to them, and they aren’t going to pay me if you buy anything from them, either. they’re just stores i like, and i think you might like them, too.
2. i’ve never had any bad experiences with these places myself, but i’m not responsible if you do. sometimes these things just happen.
