Default Anybody buy from homegaden.com?

I seldom buy clothes online, but saw a beautiful item on homegaden.com (not garden, but gaden)

I am suspicious for a couple of reasons: the price is ridiculously low, there is no info about the company like an "about us" link, and the sizes seem strange.

Any info would be appreciated.

I think I'd take a pass.

I had a similar thread a couple of weeks ago, general advice is to skip any and all websites that only have an email as a way to contact them among other ways to tell maybe they aren't so great...

I decided to listen to my inner voice and not go ahead with the order. Plus, the shipping costs and time added up.

Edit: On the plus side, the site didn't send my virus scanners into the stratosphere, some places I look up and see a count of 27 bugs in 27 seconds and quickly back out and scrub my system clean.

I only buy now from companies that I can find history on. Last Christmas I thought I was purchasing a sweat shirt for DH of one size and it was not USA sizes. The purchase turned into a nightmare. It took months but I finally got my $$ back from Amazon. This taught me a lesson to only buy from well established companies that I can trace easily. So if it is to good to be true then it is to good to be true.

I learned my lesson too! I saw a really cute pair of sandals on a pop-up on Facebook. I ordered them and saw on my VISA a charge for foreign purchase though the shoes hadn’t arrived after about 3 weeks. I cancelled and was luckily refunded. I still prefer to go to the store for my wants and needs.

There are numerous China companies flooding the market with cheap knock offs right now. Wotoba is one of them....
Lilygal is another....sizes are way too small, fabric is not what is shown in ads. Wotoba supposedly has credited me on my purchase, we will see. Buyer Beware.

Thanks to all commenters! Despite how great the jacket in the pic looks, I will pass.
