Already know DaWanda?
Then you can skip this post.
If not, take a moment to read why I find this service more efficient and human than others!
I’m a fan of handmade crafts of every kind: wallets, bags, belts, hair stuff and so on.. and I found many interesting services which sells handmade items of all kind.
Earrings and necklace at a good price.. too bad for the postal shipping costs! Overseas, in the US, shipping costs are a bit expensive and most of the time some smaller firms do not ship in Switzerland (true, we’re outside the EU, so we got penalized) or ship with extra fees.
Then I stumbled upon DaWanda and noticed there were a little less items, more accurate, more eyecatchy; it’s a German firm selling mostly in the EU, and in all over the world, and has that special that makes me like it more than everything. So I created an account: they inform you only about the offers or for the items you’ve been watching and no spam at all (other services lend your email account to third parties – READ THE LITTLE LINES, PLEASE!!).
Let’s have a look in depht on what they offer: you can browse all the categories Fashion, Accessories, Bags, Jewllery, Baby+Children, Home+Living, Art, Supplies and surf throughtout the subcategories; also refine your searches with the help of dominant colors and narrow them ordering by price.
Also, in the Trends and Inspiration section you can have a whole look at the offers and the newest trends.
All items are EURO priced and the shipping costs are low.
