My first Taobao review!

Bringing my blog back to life?

I've been browsing Taobao for a long, long, LONG time. I don't even remember when I first found out about it but I've been on the fence for a while. There was something about a shopping service that made me nervous! There were so many to choose from, so many different reviews... I decided to go with TaobaoTrends!

A little information as to what Taobao is; think of it as a Chinese Ebay or Amazon! There's no bidding, but it's a bunch of stores with many different items! Electronics, clothes, shoes, cosplay goods, you name it!
Now Taobao only ships to China. This is where the shopping service comes in. Let's say you have a few items picked out, great! Now you have to send the link and info to your SS, they'll check with the shop to make sure said item is in stock and then order it! You pay for your items and the domestic shipping to the SS. You wait for the item(s) to get to your SS, then they weigh all your items and send you an invoice for shipping. After that, you wait some more and then your items arrive!

Read on for pictures and reviews of what I ordered!! :)
