This is my 6th shipment from Little Black Bag in only two months!  Well I returned one, so it's really only five.  So it's time for me to slow down and stop buying for a bit.  Luckily, I'm seeing less products in the gallery and I've already snagged the ones that I liked the most.  I skipped my August bag!  Good for me!  Can I hold out till September?  The last couple of bags I've purchased have contained all Betsey Johnson products.  I'm really into her stuff lately!  So in this bag, I received the following:
  1. Betsey Johnson Wild Roses Wristlet, retail value $48.00
  2. Betsey Johnson Gingham Pearl Earrings, retail value $25.00
  3. Betsey Johnson Gingham Pearl & Flower Earrings, retail value $30.00
The total retail value for this Little Black Bag is $103.  I paid $54.90 including shipping.  That makes each piece cost $18.30 which is a good deal.  I looked online to find these items for less and didn't find them.  Found the wristlet, but it was sold out and not at a discount.  So not my best bag as far as retail value goes, but happy with the products I received.  I'd rather receive items I love at a lower value than those I'm not as crazy about.  I'm pleased with my three Betsey Johnson purchases.  I started with the wristlet in my bag and was given a Betsey Johnson necklace as my 2nd item, but not crazy about the 16" length.  So I traded down $18 for the Pearl & Flower earrings which were a hot item.  I had to trade up my 3rd item till it was a $25 value before I was able to trade for the pear studs.  To see what I purchased in previous bags, click on the links below:

  2. it was the wristlet which I didn't trade, a BJ 16" necklace which I traded for the pearl and flower earrings and some other item I can't remember, I traded immediately and traded and traded until the value was at $25 and then traded for BJ stud earrings.
