Joss and Main?
Am I way behind on the times here? Have you all seen this site? I love/hate finding sites like this! http://www.jossandmain.com/invite/9AAEC0

Ya, try and buy something on there, it is like you have to jump! Everytime I get my email and see something I like, it has 'SOLD out' written on it.
I tried a few times to contact someone there or click on something I was interested in, and the didn't respond.
It is run like an auction, limited items, and when they are gone, they do not restock, so you have to be very fast or maybe someone here knows how they work when you do get to actually purchase something!

I've sort of stopped looking at the flash sales sites. They were fun in the beginning and I would check a bunch of them every day, but I've gotten frustrated with the overall experience.
So many times, I can find an item for the same price or cheaper with a quick Internet search. Also, I've had a lot of bad luck with receiving incorrect or broken items. All of the sites have had great customer service, so I'm not out any money, but it's frustrating to buy something and then not receive it or have to trash it because it's broken.

Got ya. Too good to be true. And it's still more expensive than I would like. I prefer finding vintage items locally. It's more of an adventure.

I'm a subscriber, and like Mary Ruth, most of the items I really, really love are marked "sold out" or "in another member's cart" by the time I open my email. I wonder if sale items are posted in the middle of the night or something.

I use this type of site to see what is 'new' out there, too frustrating to 'rush' to spend on an accessory.
I do search online for good prices when I find something I want.
I see posts for frantic people looking for something only to see Joss and Main or One Kings Lane. Then I can see how frustrating it is to try and find after sale is over. Lots of those photos on Pinterest.

I love browsing their site, but have never purchased anything. Another one us RuLaLa and Home Mint that I browse too.
