It's possible to save money on buying quality accessories, such as jewelry, by purchasing them from local shops that carry handmade goods. Also consider thrift shops, online auction sites and retail sites focused on local goods. Other examples of quality handmade accessories include hair clips, knitted scarves and hats.
It helps to investigate the materials of handmade goods by reading tags carefully and asking questions in shops. For example, quality jewelry is often made with sterling silver, gold or other desirable metals. These items may also have real gemstones or other quality beads.
When searching for quality knit hats and scarves, consider the type of the wool or yarn. High quality cotton or wool yarn tends to have a superior feel, color and texture.
