Choobs Trinkets – baubles, trinkets and stuff like that!

I would have liked to have gone into a little repartee about how I went shopping online and remembered hearing about this family-run site selling baubles and such, but I think the title pretty much says it all! :D To cut to the chase, this arrived for me yesterday…

A couple of weeks ago, I had gone browsing through the Choobs website and fallen in love with a piece of jewelry (I swear, online shopping is hazardous to your bank account!) although I wasn’t too sure if the length would fit my wrist, so I wrote to the people behind Choobs to ask if they could make it a bit longer.

Lo and behold, they happily agreed and gave me the details to bank in payment. The agreement was that the trinket would be sent 7-10 working days after payment was made. Close enough – the trinket arrived at my doorstep safe and sound last night by Poslaju. The time taken was 11 days in total, although to be fair I suspect the delay was due to my paying by cheque rather than direct transfer (adding in clearing time for the cheque and all)

Choobs has absolutely gorgeous packaging for their products, which is great since you can just order something off the site for a friend and have it delivered to their doorstep without having to wrap it yourself (and saving cost on double postage to boot!) It came packed in a plastic ziplock bag and placed in an organza bag, which was then slipped in a paper envelope, sealed and mailed off in a bubble-wrap Poslaju envelope. How’s that for presentation? :)

And voila! This is what I got – no surprise that I picked Purple Haven given my penchant for the aubergine hue eh? *wink* heck, I even have an email address similar to the name of this…if that’s not a sign, I don’t know what is! :D

As it turns out, I found out that Choobs was being run by a friend from my college/university days, together with her sister and mom…small world? :) But regardless, I’ll definitely be back for more…now if I could only make up my mind over which ones I like more…*decisions decisions*…

Rinnah’s also felt the love at Choobs – jump here for her take.
