Very Jane provides a boutique feel for online deals

I purchased this bubble-style necklace on Very Jane last year.

I was browsing through one of my favorite blogs several months ago when I came across a reference for online boutiques that provide deals on household items, accessories and more.

Ever since Kate, author of The Small Things Blog, introduced me to Very Jane — an online boutique store — I’ve been hooked on checking it almost daily to see the deals.

Here’s how it works:

Very Jane adds a new deal daily, but keeps a running list of deals for about a week. By partnering with other online businesses and Etsy craft store owners, Very Jane is able to offer some items up to 50 percent off.

Last fall, I made my first purchase on Very Jane. Bubble necklaces were getting pretty popular, but running up to $60 or more on popular sites, such as J. Crew. Very Jane had them for $17. Full price was $35.

I made my most recent purchase earlier this month by snagging some container labels from Bwordy. A set of eight cost $5 and there were numerous words to choose from. I was looking for something similar after seeing a chalkboard label design on Pinterest. This is easy to apply and much cheaper. Now I can easily label my flour, sugar and oats.

I also purchased a set of prints from Eccolo. Each print has a colored state shape on a dictionary page. I could then choose text to go along with the print, and if I put in a zip code, a heart would be placed on a town of my choice. I bought two prints, one for Ohio and one for Pennsylvania, with a heart on my hometown and my fiance’s hometown. Each print cost $7.50, with an original price of $25 each.

Shipping and handling are different for each item, depending on where the seller is located.

Even if you missed a deal, you can often visit the website of the seller and purchase the product that way — but it might be at full price. Keep Very Jane in mind for decorating your home on the cheap or finding affordable gifts.
