It basically combines the concept behind Golden Tote with a daily deal site like ideeli or Hautelook. So you pick out the accessory of your choice (all of which are super marked down), and then you get surprise bonus items after checkout. That’s pretty cool, but the fun part is what comes next. There’s a trading marketplace, and you get to trade your items with other members. So if you don’t like the freebie necklace you got, you can make an offer to trade it for a pair of sunglasses you like, or a cute wristlet, and everyone who got the item you like will be notified of your offer. You’ll also get a bunch of offers to trade your things which you can pass on, or accept, or accept and use to trade for something even better. I’ve been doing this obsessively for a half hour, it’s crazy addicting.
All of your items are held for a week, and then LBB ships everything to you. So you aren’t trading with strangers and hoping they’ll be honest, it all happens before anything leaves the warehouse and LBB handles all of the logistics. If you’re happy with your stuff, you can also ship your package before the week is up. It’s kind of brilliant.
Right now if you sign up through this link, you’ll get 25% off your order, plus they’re running a special today where if you order a bag that’s at least $39.95, you’ll get two additional bags with your freebies to give you more stock to trade with. Frickin’ amazing. The deals change frequently, but all of them seem to be crazy, rock-bottom, how-can-they-afford-to-do-this kind of deals.
This is what I have right now. In spite of what you see, LBB also offers shoes and home accessories. They also have a few high end items as well, but I ended up shopping in the lower range. I got nine total items, and all of this cost me ~$50. I’m still trading so it may not reflect my final order. I’ll be sure to update with IRL pics once my shipment arrives!
