Buying from China

Should I or Shouldn’t I

I have purchased many, many items from China and other Far Eastern Countries. Do you get what you pay for, in some cases yes but overall I have been very surprised by the Excellent Quality and Service.
The items I have purchased range from Musical Instruments, Toys, Light Bulbs, Jewellery including Cheap"925" Silver. Checking this Silver with Acid and an Earth Magnet seems to prove there is Silver in this Jewellery and is not Silver Plate. My only doubt would be that its not 925 but about 800.  But hey, it’s still cheaper than buying Costume Jewellery and looks good. I have also brought from a major UK Jewellery TV Channel and found the Lobster Claw Clip is not silver.
Before buying anything on eBay always check the feedback and if it’s below 99% take care. Read what other buyers have said. With all the items I have purchased I would say it’s less than 1% when I have had a reason to complain.
Not everything is cheaper than buying from the UK so do shop around.
So if you’re worried about buying from China, have a go by buying small, give it a try. Bear in mind it may take 4-5 weeks before it’s delivered.
