The Gmarket Haul Part 1

I come in a package of being fidgety and lazy rolled into one (but I am mainly lazy), so I've split my haul in two parts for the Gmarket haul and some more parts for my other hauls. Gmarket Haul Part 1 focuses on non-fashion related items.

This is my passport holder! I find that whenever I travel I shove my passport in my purse causing it to be in the most disgusting condition ever. This passport holder will protect it now! It's made of pleather and the seller 하이델 has it in many colors. Each color corresponds to a different country - the one I have is copper brown and represents Seoul. The freebies that came with the purchase were a lipstick pen and a single mask... which appears to be for men....so likely Mr.W will use this! I would purchase from this seller again because they have many other really adorable items great for travelling!


My new GD580 cellphone case! It's made of pleather coated with water resistant material (so it's very shiny). Unfortunately, it doesn't fit properly because the design is flawed. The camera hole opening is not placed properly!! But for $6 I can't complain much.... The seller is ♡미소피아♡ and sells other casings for cellphones for approximately the same price. The one I purchased may actually be slightly more expensive because of the material used (pleather vs. plastic). The designs are all very cute and the seller also gives two free screen covers with the purchase.


My favorite purchase of the bunch (excluding fashion related purchases). This camera casing was so cheap but is so durable and so chic!! Initially, I could not decide if I wanted white or pink more, but in the end picked the pink/blue combination because white gets dirty too easily! The case is VERY well made given that it's produced in China and for the price. It fits my Sony W55 perfectly, but if the camera is any bulkier, this case would not be appropriate. I purchased it from 스타기프트.

My last non-fashion related item from my Gmarket haul is this Castledew eyeshadow palette. It's BE905 Blackish Smokey. I'm not sure if it's a new palette but on the seller (스킨밀크에센스샵)'s site, it says these are new colors. The casing is a magnet for fingerprints! I haven't had the chance to use it yet, but on the back it says it's baked, so I'm assuming it's not very pigmented and will require some foiling....

Shipping: None of the prices listed include shipping. Overall, shipping would add about $3 to each of the lighter items and more to the heavier items, considering I got shoes!

Issues: I actually had some issues making this order. I wanted to use the the balance in my gaccount so I checked out my items using the gaccount balance option. However I was not aware that you cannot make partial payments with your gaccount and have the remaining balance paid by credit card/paypal. I had no issues with paying the full balance using with my paypal account, however, once you've select the gaccount option, you either have to pay the balance in full with the gaccount or deposit money into your account - except I did not live in Korea nor did I have a korean bank account.

The money in your Gaccount is money that you've either accumulate from a) overpayment in shipping charges; b) deposits (only from a korean bank account); c) you were selected as blogger of the month and they deposit a gmarket certificate voucher into your account.

Long story short, from the bantering emails between Gmarket and I, representatives there told me that I had to cancel my order and then make another order and pay with paypal. ~~~ヽ(#゚Д゚)ノ!!!!! What they didn't realize was that it took me hours to select all the items I wanted and did not exactly save all the urls/product codes of the items I selected. On top of that, they were going to deduct 3 points for cancelling the order. (Note: you earn points for each successful item transaction but if you lose these points and go into the negatives, Gmarket will ban you from buying from them again - similar to Ebay ratings). In the end, I cancelled my first order, and made an identical second order but did not get my points deducted. Moral of the story: make sure you have sufficient funds in your gaccount before using it to pay for your order!!


I leave you with my Lunasol, Sofina Aube and Bourjois haul! (I will have to review all this later!). You've made it through the first part of my Gmarket haul/rant! Hurrah! アヒャヒャヘ(゚∀゚*)ノヽ(*゚∀゚)ノアヒャヒャ.

Happy Hump Day!
