Oi Amigos e Amigas,
I’m so excited to share with you my most recent monthly haul purchase. Collectively, these items were purchased within a two month time span. As I mentioned in my monthly Haul Budget, I aim for quality and not necessarily quantity without leaving myself broke at the end of the month.
I found The Current Custom or Lorraine Stanick within the YouTube Beauty Community and was quickly taken by her personality and style.
So, I later found out that she sells jewelry on her blog as well as her family’s boutiques in Florida. If you watch any of my Beauty Channel Videos, you’d know that I love Jewelery! Amo!
Especially if its of great quality, has circles or ‘O’s for my name ‘Odeliza’, and artisan style ;P
My first purchase was the 42″ Gold Filled Chain link necklace by Lisa Taubes and two small Sterling Silver Hammered Cuff Bracelets and one small Gold Filed Bracelets by David Smallcombe.
My Fiancee calls me ‘Wonder Woman’ when I wear the cuffs. lol ;P
The necklace is very delicate and elegant. It could be worn in various ways. The cuffs are substantial in weight, but not a bother on the wrists.
I’ve decided Lisa Taubes and David Smallcombe Jewelery are my new favorite designers.
I placed another order this past week.
On a side note, I am adamant about customer service. Prior to placing my first order, I called to ask a few questions about the chain link and the cuffs. I spoke to Debbie Stanick, the mother and owner of Exit Art (the actual name of the store). She was patient with me and really helped me through my selection.
On my second purchase I called again just to say thanks and how I really appreciated her thoughtfulness. She remembered me even though she has a multitude of clientele. That trait of her’s is what makes me a new loyal customer.
Money is tough to come by and tough to save especially in this world recession. If I am going to spend any money I want to make certain it’s for quality items, but more importantly I receive attention to my needs as a buying customer. I’ve walked out of boutiques that sell fabulous items just because I did not get greeted when I entered and not even acknowledged when I looked through the goods.
Even though my purchase was online and by phone I received the most exceptional customer service. Mil Obrigada (million thanks) Stanick Family
I hope this article was helpful for you! Don’t for get to subscribe to my Beauty Channel ;P
Beijo e Ciao,
Update, October 8, 2010
I received my most recent order 3 weeks after my original purchase online and it was incomplete. I was missing one item, so I called Debbie right away and she sent it within the next day.Surprisingly, I received that item the next week.
The only issue I really have is timing. I’d really love to order more items, but the time it takes to get here, I might as well wait until I visit Florida and purchase everything at their stores. Not everyone has the luxury to do this, so if you really want to order from Debbie, I’d call and maybe negotiate shipping specifications.
