HipSwap site review from my order a month ago :)



HipSwap is pretty self explanatory. As you can see from these screenshots, HipSwap is like Ebay. Except take out the nasty frustrating time commitment to bidding away....
 You can buy things, sell things, and win things. You can shop celebrity closets without having to bid! 
Also if you have a lot of stuff to get rid of (like Me) you can easily sell your stuff . Oh, I left out the best part: For free! If it sells, you owe HipSwap 3.5%, which isn't too shabby in comparison with what other sites charge upwards of.

I got a chance to spend a little Moola at HipSwap. Just to see what it's all about!
I found so much stuff. The only thing frustrating to me, was the time it will allow an item to be in your cart. But that is also a good thing, because that means less confusion and hassle for you, so two people cannot purchase the same item.  
Hipswap, as you can see from the photo below, has apps available for iPhone, and Android phones.
Keep reading to see Categories of things you will find on the site, PLUS Major Cities that sales are associated with.
For instance--
Like the style in Miami? Or are you more of a Atlanta girl?
You can even shops starts homes, clothes and accessories, as they have featured many celebrities stores closets on the site.

I finally settled on an item(s) when I found an amazing price on 2 Disney Bradford Exchange Princess Bells! Only 10$ Each and shipping 5$ for each.
The bells weren't in thier original boxes, but they were packaged carefully and made it quickly. And from the other coast too, as my seller was in California, and I am in Georgia.

Amazingly they only cost me 30$ for both, which is shockingly significant difference in price of what they would cost new.

Here, see for yourself:
Let's compare some prices on this item I saved so much money on from other sites on the WWWeb!

If you like my bell, here's a link to a few others:
Christmas Bradford exchange Snow White Bell $50.
 use this link to see my HipSwap user page and see items I favorite while shopping, they are all under 25$! Go see what I found!!


Plus- If you look here, you will see the bell I paid 10$ and 5$ shipping for is actually $50 since they don't make it anymore: Forever Sleeping Beauty

In fact ...on this site they are 50$ too My Preview (.ca)
Which means, the thirty dollars I paid to have my bells shipped to my door, costs way less than the 100$ you'd have to spend to buy them elsewhere. I didn't have to haggle, bid or anything, and Paypal ordering was a breeze!

Long story short- HipSwap saved me a TON of money!!!
Even on this site, which sells the exact same Ariel Bell I bought on HipSwap for 10$ is selling theirs for $54.95!!

So as you can see, Hipswap is the bees knees!

Here are the picture's I took of the bells I got for Giana & Devonny. I love that they are 22k gold plated too! they are so nice! I'm kinda scared they will get broke. I hope not....
The Memorable love/kiss scene in The Little Mermaid

I know, stinking cute!




“Forever Ariel,” the Fifth Issue in the Disney Dresses and Dreams® bell collection, captures scenes from Walt Disney’s classic animated film on a gracefully sculpted collectible bell.
The lovely Ariel figure is hand-sculpted of luminous, triple-fired Heirloom Porcelain and meticulously hand-glazed. Her pretty face, pose and accessories are designed to stay true to Walt Disney’s Little Mermaid. With a gentle shake, the bell rings with a happy sound. Gleaming 22K gold at Ariel’s waistline and flounced hem makes the perfect finishing touch.
