The idea? In my mind, it's like going to the outlet malls, only the inventory turns over DAILY. Each of the sites I look at gets new items daily, focusing on a few designers for a few days, and then moving on. They each have a different focus as well.
The drawback? You have to be invited to join the sites, but joining is free. Most sites offer a $10-$15 joining bonus if you accept an invitation from another member.
One King's LaneThis is a great site for household items. Just as an example, today their sales include Chef Clad and Ultra Clad cookware that is all 50% off, bamboo towel sets that are 67% off, coffee table books, and artwork for the home. If you want to join, you can click here for your invitation. This one offers $15 for joining, and there are towel sets that are $15 right now--you'd only have to pay shipping.
ZulilySpecializing in high end baby and children's items, Zulily will often have some really great deals. Today's sales include Hartstrings, Petit Ami, Combi, Minki, and Petunia Pickle Bottom. Remember that the deals change every day. Click here to join.
The Mini-SocialThis site is usually dedicated to high end children and baby items. My favorite part is that they often have Melissa and Doug items and some other great learning toys, but I also love that they will offer really great boutique children's clothing for an unbelievably low price. Remember that these sales only last for a couple of days before they move on to the next sales. The link to the Mini Social is here.
