The High Cost of Cheap...



Cheap is not always better. Read the book 'Cheap' and find out why. I am reading the book by Schell and am enjoying it. If you make hand made art and jewelry like me, then you can appreciate it when people will pay more for quality,durability and hand made versus factory line jewelry. Most unfortunately want a deal and cheap and thus trade beauty for ugly crap. What do you think?

Where the Bargains are ..NOW

my 'Green Art',recycled,reused metal earrings made from tuna cans! I added gem stones and beads to make it 'shabby chic' style. What do you think?
click link to se what yo can save on now if you want to be a frugal,smart,persisitant shopper. (hint) you don't need ot go to Lands End store or outlet to get shoes. try 'Label chopper' for the same thing for $ 15.! Accessories too are down. i know i make jewelry. I sold earrings of sterling silver and gem stone for $ 15, to a hair salon store owner, that normally costs $ 22! no, the cost of silver and shipping it did not go down folks. I simply want to sell what I have as is overstock.
