    Packages FINALLY coming in

    I have been purchasing stuff from the AliExpress.com website
    at least 3-6 times a week (NEVER very much money), when I
    placed the orders it just happen to be during their Chinese New Year
    so there was a delay for processing and shipping the orders.

    Most of the stuff I have been ordering is sewing notions, charms,
    hot fix rhinestones, etc.

    Well over the last week I have slowly been getting 1 -3 packages
    a day, until yesterday.

    My mailman had to bring one of the USPS delivery boxes to my door
    because I had 5 packages that all arrived. Of course one of the packages
    was a large box that had 2 new pair of sandals I ordered on Thursday.

    My hubs just laughed at me when I got home and saw all the packages
    waiting for me.

    put off till tomorrow what you can do today, and if you procrastinate long enough, you may never have to do it.

    Lynnie,

    So far I have been HIGHLY pleased with the quality. I have only had
    a problem 2 times, one time I ordered some earphones and I didn't
    get the colors ordered, but they were the same product, not that big
    deal for me. The other thing is I ordered and received what was SUPPOSED
    to be hotfix rhinestones, and these do not look like any hotfix I have used
    before, so I think the wrong item may have been shipped.

    I will be "testing" these hot fix SOON if they don't stick than I will have
    my answer soon enough.

    In fact MANY of the item are way ABOVE the quality I was expecting.

    The key is you MUST be patient it takes time to receive your items.

    they say free shipping too. is it?
    the quality is god also? Let me know about the products you got and how they really are.
    They have all sorts of thing, blue strawberries, purple lemons. Nice jewelry, and cloths and more.
    I tucked them into favorites. thanks Louise.

    Lynnie,

    Did you see the post I made in the March PC/NC forum with all
    the tape measures and seam rippers?

    Well those are just a couple of the items I have purchased. I have
    purchased MANY hot fix crystal rhinestones so far I am pleased with
    them (as in my previous post I haven't tried one of the products yet,
    but I will).

    I also got a Seahorse necklace, it was twice as big as what I was
    expecting (not a bad thing), but I still liked it my daughter liked it
    even more so I gave it to her.

    Got some lever back earring findings (to make earrings with), haven't
    used them yet but they look great.

    I bought my daughter 6 nursing bras for LESS than $18, gave them
    to her yesterday wasn't sure about 3 of the bras as if they would fit
    (they looked WAYYYYYY to small). She called me this morning and said
    not only did they fit, but they give her 10times the support compared
    to her old (before pregnancy) push up bra.

    Also bought a couple rings, if my fingers wasn't going through so much
    bouts of swelling I would be able to wear them more often, but as it is
    I can only wear them on rare occasions. Guess I should have ordered a
    larger size that is all MY own fault and nothing to do with it coming from
    China.

    As for the free shipping YES as long as you are buying from a
    store that offers free shipping.
    (I ONLY purchase from the free shipping vendors).


    When I am doing a search I select the "lowest to highest price" and check
    the "free shipping" box (located above the items).

    I will try to get some pictures posted soon.

    Lynnie,

    I really don't think the rings can be resized one is gold plated,
    and the other is silver plated.

    As for the seahorse necklace here is a link to see it.

    Louise, for the price, it's a great necklace.
    I love some of the seeds they have, blue strawberries, green carrots and white watermelon

    The red rhinestones are mainly for using with my diabetes awareness
    ribbons that I am going to make.

    Not counting using them (both colors) on Christmas items I make.


    Yeah I am gathering goodies for swaps when I can get back into
    doing them again.

    My husband buys a lot through AlieExpress. Mostly gelatin capsules and supplements. He has bought me a handbag which was 90% off, real leather and very well constructed. Just remember to read the description carefully, for example they sometimes list a bag as leather, but further down it may be PU leather (which is basically plastic). My bag is a handbag that converts to backpack, 100% real leather and is just what I need for work (I am a disability support worker). So just be careful to read the fineprint and you should have no problems.
