You're soooo totally welcome! I traded all the items you gave me for the Nila Anthony Woven Tote, and someone accepted within a few mins! It was probably crazy for me to offer items that were valued $40 over the price of the tote, and I'm sure you felt crazy offering all your items to me for $30 over what the value of the steve madden bag was, BUT WHO CARES! You got what you wanted, and I did too! Yay for double trades :) I'm so happy for the both of us!

Exactly!!!  All of those smaller items do not compare to the one item that you really want!!! 

 

I am so glad that you were able to quickly get the tote you wanted.  It just feels good to finally get that one big item & like a huge relief at the same time.  Next is the waiting for the box to come & then getting excited all over again!!!  Thanks again - I'm still smiling & can't wait for the box to arrive!!!  Happy Monday to both us!!!

Random question, but how do you have so many items in your one bag? Did you trade for all of that??

Yes smilehappyyes.gif  I started out with the last silver hibiscus bag (along with a nail polish & wraps = $121) & immediately took a trade for the mosaic bag + another item.  Then someone offered 4 smaller items for the mosaic bag and so on...  I had up to 13 items in my bag at one time (worth up to $403 before trading down) by taking multiple trade offers & then slowly working them up until I could combine enough items to get something I wanted.  It is very time consuming (& addicting).  It is hard to stay unattached to the items (the more on the keep pile, the less to trade) & a little crazy because you don't know if you will get what you really want.  I guess it is a bit of a gamble, but this was my 2nd bag & I am very happy with both!!!  My first bag ended with 7 items = $317 (with the extra item/nail wraps from Elle's glitter promo code) and this one is currently at 9 items = $346 (hoping to combine & trade down a time or two yet, but happy with what I have if I can't).  Hope this helps.  I am by no means an expert & this could have turned out differently, but my sister (who got me started in all this in the first place - lol) also gave me some tips before I started.  It is a roller coaster ride - if you can handle the dips & dives, it is a fun ride!!!  I will post pics of my first bag & this one on the pic thread eventually.  Let me know if you have any other questions.  Thanks!!!

Just got my first bag in!! 

 

I ended with: 

 

 

1- Street Level Zig Zag Printed Satchel
2- Redken Quick Tease 15 Finishing Spray
3- All the Rage Snake Enamel Bracelet
4- michael marcus Amethyst Cake Eyeliner
5- Present Time White Wood Photo Frame

 

Everything was such amazing quality. After reading all of the reviews here about other Street Level bags, I was quite worried, but mine looks amazing. And I absolutely love the snake bracelet. I think it may be my favorite part of the bag.

Now, if only the Nila Anthony belted structure bag would come back in stock in the color I want, I will gladly open another bag.

Hi! Love this thread and LOVE Lbb! Question- what are 'hot' items? What does that mean? I traded down a $32 cuff that no one wanted, for the OMG ring (because on the newsfeed it said it was 'hot') and no one wanted it! No good incoming trade offers, and I couldn't trade it up for 3 whole days!

Insights?

Strange as I couldn't get it a second time for trading purpose. Hot items do change all the time though. Sometimes items are held onto because people don't want to let them go or go for an even trade. Once more get into the gallery though the crazy offers dwindle because someone may give it away for less. I'm not sure how the site calculates it. Whether it's how it keeps trading or what people mark as a love? idk. Best way to keep track is just check the news feed for what items actually trade for and then trial and error.

Hey everyone,

 

I really need to trade my Steve Madden Color Block Fedora because my friend just received her July bag and surprised me with it :) So now I have one in my bag, and one with me. Anything equal or higher value is appreciated!

 

Also, if anyone wants the Nila Anthony Woven Tote ($88), I'd be happy to trade it for:

 

- the She & Josh Studded Tote in Green/Tan ($70) plus another jewerly item/accesorry that's value is around $20

- Street Level Front Large Pocket Tote in Red ($72) plus see above

- Miztique Pocket Woven Satchel (Orange) plus something around ($30-40) just because this isn't my first choice bag.

I have the Kenneth Cole Shake Hoop Earrings (silver and yellow) and I don't have pierced ears so earrings do me no good. I'm looking to trade them for the Robert Rose Pyramid Stretch Ring, the two tone one, I think they have two different rings labeled the same thing, and another small item $10-$12ish in value. Any takers? I'm Becca Flach on LBB.

I did.  I accepted a purse for some sunglasses once, and immediately felt sad.  I offered to trade back and luckily someone accepted right away.  I guess that would be harder in your case since you accepted a 2 for 1 and can't offer it back though.

 

Maybe someone is reading here and will take pity on you and offer you the jewelry back :)

lol..i do feel sad.  I just keep thinking why did i do that? lol  I actually went to Target yesterday and saw tons of similar jewelry for really cheap, so I thought I'd trade away my jewelry for some sunglasses since I can get them so cheap at Target, but now I wish I didn't!  There were sets of two of those bamboo bangles for $10!  and the gold cuff is only $9.00 at Target.  There were also tons of earrings for like $4-$5.  BUT  I still wish I kept the jewelry!

    • Amazing video from Second Year No Buyer Elle S today on YouTube: "$1000 Worth of Eyeshadow ... What Could I have Bought Instead?" Elle shows only seven palettes that cost a total of $1000 (CAD). Elle is not in the dream of denial shopping. She is serious about money, facing reality, real life (though she is still enjoying the creativity of makeup). "I can't afford it," she says. I can relate to her point about being someone who buys a lot of cosmetics, but never goes for a mani or pedi, or anything like that. She asks: How many things have I missed because of my purchases? Now that's something to think about! I often think of how my life would have been different if I'd been able to start on this No Buy path at a young age. There was no Internet then, so I did not have this kind of inspiration. I only had magazines and TV ads telling me to buy, buy, buy!  But, why do all the No Buy people say they want to replace shopping with experiences? Shopping is an experience too! It a great experience and that's why we like it. I'm only giving it up to get rid of debt, because I know money makes me happy.  I grew up in 1970s suburban America. I grew up in a shopping mall and in K Mart. I was always at those places with my friends, searching for identity. So of course shopping is high on my list of experiences.  THE SHOPPING EXPERIENCE-1970s-1980s The Barbie Dolls and Barbie clothes at K Mart Getting a mood ring at K Mart and feeling so cool  The excited butterflies in the tummy, when pulling into the shopping mall parking lot The bright lights and the smell of the Cinnabon store The Waldenbooks, where you bought Laura Ingalls Wilder books, where you discovered Sylvia Plath The record store, where you thumbed through record albums, and you discovered Blondie and Jacqueline du Pre The Clinique counter, where the lady did your makeup and made you feel glamorous and grown up, and assured you Brooke Shields was nothing without her makeup  The food! Arthur Treachers Fish and Chips, Morrisons Cafeteria with the fried chicken and buttery rolls and iced tea All the latest issues of Teen and Seventeen magazine The Super X drugstore with Sophia perfume, Vidal Sassoon shampoo, and Maybelline Kissing Potion The movie theater where you saw The Turning Point seven times and fell in love with ballet (1977 the most magical year) Orange Julius Trying European cheese samples at the Swiss Colony The ORLANE counter - the epitome of elegance to me  The Stendahl counter - This was a really beautiful and expensive French cosmetics brand. The lady at the counter was French. I practiced my French with her and she sent me a little note in French later on. She was kind. I had cystic acne. It was bad. "Oh, I see you have a little but of acne. Not to worry, it just needs a bit of astringent and fond de teint." She was tactful and gave me nice samples.  My first Estee Lauder GWP - I thought I was Princess Di - it had Cinnibar perfume My first LANCOME GWP - I thought I was Princess Caroline. I was given Sun Touched Terra lipstick  Princess Marcella Borghese Germaine Monteil - Royal Secret Alexandra de Markoff - I never did get to try that legendary foundation - department store cosmetics were rare and glorious treats Adrien Arpel in her pre HSN days  The Erno Laszlo counter. It was so mysterious. You could not buy from them unless you went through a kind of initiation. You had to get an analysis and buy a special kit. It was fascinating. Now they just have samples going in beauty sub boxes any old way - Dr. L would not be very happy. He wanted his beauty routines done right and they were quite unorthodox. See the book, The Natural Way to Super Beauty by Mary Ann Crenshaw to know more about this.  And I could go on and on. Of course I had no credit cards then, no job, just a little allowance. So I was not really ever spending much, just having fun. It's when you're older and have credit and money that it becomes a problem. Now there's no money, no time to shop, K Mart and the malls are ghost towns. And don't get me started on how much more fun TV was back then. Even going to the library was so much fun. Now all is so dull, dull, dull! I just get up, go to my job, come home, eat dinner, go to bed, and hope that my No Buy will make me rich and happy one day.           
    • i love natural products, but before buying products , i encourage u to know what type ur skin and read about it well , then everything will be clear for u and easy
    • i need info regarding Lash Extensions from real experience ?! 
    • I am religiously using Vitamin C, E, Ferulic Acid serum by Radium Skin. They ship overseas. And its not expensive too, considering how much other mainstream labels are charging.
