If you haven’t heard of AliExpress by now it is one of the leading online platform for global wholesale trade. It’s a retail branch from Alibaba but AliExpress offers products to international small buyers. I’m not here on a sponsorship but an honest review of my experience shopping on AliExpress so far. This is my second order from AliExpress. I started out buying jewelry and falsies to amp up my daily wear only to find it’s very addicting to shop.
My second purchase included vases, teapots, tons of jewelry, a pair of shoes, glass cups, and more home furnishings. About 40 items that cost over $200. Not too shabby. I won’t be displaying everything (maybe a part 2?). The jewelry pieces are incredibly cheap. They’re comparable to Forever 21 or Charlotte Russe quality except the wait time can take 3 weeks to a month. I purchased my items during the Chinese New Year 2019 so some items arrived a month and a half later.
Packaging can vary from very small to well secure for glass items. My tea cups were not secure so 2 cups broke. I contacted the seller who asked for images, and upon receiving the images she resent me 2 new cups for free. I’m still waiting for them to come in so we’ll see. One other glass vial was completely crushed so I claimed a dispute, and received a full refund.
There’s many sellers on AliExpress so you may find sellers selling the same items. Shop around to see if you can get a bargain, and look at the reviews! Most of these items were free or a couple of cents shipping. BTW, these are all of my images. Feel free to ask me any questions. Enjoy shopping!
