9th & Elm (monogram giveaway!)

With Christmas practically just around the corner. (Let's face it, once Halloween hits... we're in hyperdrive towards the big day.) If you are anything like I am this year, you have been frantically searching the web for unique gifts... but at good prices! I honestly think I spent an entire day last week looking for gifts online, but did not purchase a single item. I tend to find lots of items I like, but then tell myself "Nah, I'm sure I could find something similar for a better price." I end-up wasting several hours! Well, I was thrilled to find a fantastic resource for unique gifts at great prices. 9th & Elm curates a shop of a variety of unique handmade/"indie" gifts at prices that are affordable.

And, the kicker? FREE SHIPPING on everything! This summer, I purchased a monogram acrylic necklace for my mom's birthday. (only $22) It was my first experience with 9th & Elm. I read on their site that this item would ship within a week. Ship within a week! I have purchased several personalized/monogrammed items from other online shops and always had to wait at least 2-3 weeks for the item to arrive.
But... to my surprise: It arrived in just a few days!

I later ordered a Gold Monogram Ring for myself, and again - I was very pleased with the price ($44), the free shipping... and the fast shipping

The ring arrived in just a few days! And, it is a beautiful addition to my ever growing collections of monogrammed lovelies. (9th & Elm's Monogram Shop section is difficult to resist.)

If monograms aren't your style - 9th & Elm has a wide variety of clothing, jewelry, accessories, decor items, and more! All at discounted prices + with free shipping! Be sure to note the estimated shipping time next to each product. (some items even ship within 1-2 days!) From my experience, I know these estimations are accurate. If you think you've run out of time to order personalized gifts for Christmas - think again!

I want to share the 9th & Elm goodness with you!

Clothing Thrifting Online (+ get some freebies too)

I just had to share with you some more ways I've been able to snag awesome clothing deals online via online thrifting! I mentioned a bit here, but thought I'd explain more so you can maximize the deals! If your back-to-school shopping or (if you're like me) simply love being able to tell people that your dress only cost $2, read on!


I've found (& have purchased from) two great websites - 

ThredUP - This site is amazing. You can purchase new & gently used women's and children's clothing, shoes, and accessories at incredibly reasonable prices (+ your order ships for only $3). I have ordered a bunch from this site and everything I've received has been brand new or in immaculate condition. If you are a new customer, register through this link and you will automatically receive $20 off your purchase. They have tons of stuff $20 and under, so you could be getting an item(s) for FREE. (the $20 will be taken off at final checkout). It can be a bit tricky at first to figure out how to search for specific types of items. Choose a category at the top of the page first, then you will be able to narrow down items by type,  size, brand, color, etc. or type in a search term. So, if you haven't already... sign up and get your $20 worth of freebies!
UPDATE: It seems as though ThredUp has caught on to this 'trick'... and now this link is valid for $20 off orders of $75+

Twice - This site is very similar to ThredUp; it even makes me wonder if they're "related." They currently only sell women's clothing. So far, I've ordered a few dresses from Twice and they seem brand new aside from the missing price tags! Now, you can build-up quite a nice little bit of FREE credit. First, when you register through this link you will automatically be credited $10. Then, download their app onto your Apple device(s) & receive $10 for each device (up to 3 devices); I'm not sure if they have an app for android - let me know in the comments if you find one. So you could get $40 in FREE credit! ($10 for signing-up + up to $30 for app downloads!). A nice little plus is that you can use a portion of this credit toward your shipping if you'd like (orders ship for $5). So what are you waiting for? Sign-up, then download the app and get your (free) shopping on!


If you have any questions - add them in the comments and I'll do my best to help!
Or follow me on instagram - I often post about great items I find on these sites.

+ leave me a comment with what you're able to order!
