  • I've bought it, but not sold it. They do have very nice stuff. Best of luck to you.

  • I've bought it, but I didn't have the same luck as the PP. The stuff I received was overpriced junk. I spent $75 on a necklace and a ring, both with simulated pearls, and the pearls chipped pretty much immediately when I wore the pieces. Not to mention, in this economy, people are buying this kind of stuff less. If you are going to get into selling it, you have to spend a bunch of money up front and when I looked into it, it just didn't seem worth it.

  • Over priced junk sums it up, this is why I steer clear of Product Direct Sales anymore...No one wants more Stuff.
    I have no more stuff, make 4 times the income in 1/2 the free

  • Yeah you have to be careful with a lot of direct selling companies lately....some just have prices that are way too high. I'm not going to spend $50 on a piece of jewelry or $30 for a candle. I go to Claire's and get a necklace for $8 or go to the craft store, use a coupon and buy supplies and make my own.....candles, I mostly use fake ones that are battery operated on timers, my one indulgence are yankee candle tarts.

    Here is something different. I'm happy to help with any questions or details if you're interested. This is what I do from home...and I've made really good money.

  • I agree with the PPs. Another thing to think about is the fact that jewelry isn't consumable like beauty products, so your customers have less reason to return. With Mary Kay, I earn 50% on everything I sell and get to hang out with the girls and have fun, spend time with my family, work whichever hours I want, and earn money while doing it! Plus, my customers love that they get to TRY before the BUY! Get in touch with me if you're interested in learning more!!

  • I've never sold it, but I have seen the catalogue. There stuff is very high priced compared to, say, a jewelry store of the fine jewelry department of the local department store. I wouldn't sell it unless you know people who have money to spend.
