[SOLD] Marais USA two-toned flat, cranberry 8.5 (would fit size 8)

From Marais USA's website:

The classic, timeless ballet flat. Perfect for all seasons. A total steal for $64. Faux patent with 100% genuine kid suede toe cap. Cushioned footbed.

Fits true to size, but runs on the narrow side. If you have wider feet or are in between sizes, we recommend ordering a half size up.


I ordered these from anthrpologie.com and didn't see the disclaimer to order a size up! So my loss is your gain. They were only worn on carpet in a feeble attempt to get them to fit on my feet. There is a small crease near the suede part of one shoe (pictured above) , but not too noticeable. Would fit a size 8 best, maybe even 7.5.

Paid: $64

Asking: $50 (includes shipping within the US, $5 extra if international)

Listing ends: December 7.

Steven Alan handmade sterling silver pendant necklace

My boyfriend bought this sweet little handmade sterling silver necklace for me from Steven Alan a couple winters ago, it wasn't the one that I had wanted, but it was close! He's now my ex, so I thought it was time to pass it on. The clasp and pendant (which is an irregular oval shape) are both handmade, and the chain is small and delicate. I think the label that made it was called Garnish—it isn't marked but comes in it's original pouch. Perfect for someone who doesn't like big jewelry, but also a good layering piece.

sterling silver
Size: One size fits all, pendant is approx. 1", chain is 10" long (measuring half)
Condition: As new, worn a few times

Paid: approx.
Asking: $55 + shipping

Camper wedge sandals, size 7.5-8 *SOLD*

Description/sizing: Camper sandals with a black velcro ankle strap and pale wood wedge heel with rubber on the sole. Very simple and minimalist looking. Would fit a 7.5 or 8, but run a bit narrow on my feet. I wore them one time and since they felt narrow to me, I'm letting them go.

Condition: Very good. There is some minor scuffing of the wood on the inside of the right wedge.

Found these in the back of my closet while doing a clear-out, I have no idea how much I paid for them. No box, but I will wrap with care!

Asking $20 including shipping in the U.S.

Listing ends December 6th.

Biviel Heeled Oxfords, size 38 *SOLD*

I am reluctantly listing this pair of very sweet Biviel oxfords. I've worn them 5 or 6 times but they have been in my closet since last winter.

Description/sizing: Plum/eggplant leather uppers, 3 inch cone heel, partially covered with leather, with a half inch platform. They are a size 38 (US 8) and true to size. (I'm typically a 7.5 but wore these with heavy tights.) The platform makes them really comfortable to wear.

Condition: Very good. There is minor wear on the heels and soles. There is a flaw on the inner right heel-- a few stitches on the leather covering have come loose. I would think this would be an easy fix, and it isn't even noticeable when the shoes are being worn. (I tried to show it on the bottom picture-- if you click on it you can see it on the bottom shoe.) They have been thoroughly cleaned and conditioned. I no longer have the box but I'll wrap carefully.

Price: These retailed for around $160; I paid $135. Asking $40 plus $5 shipping in the U.S.

Listing ends on December 6th.
