Online Store Review: CocoMia.com

Scissors necklace On

CocoMia.com has closed since the post was created.

At the beginning of the school year I was approached by a brand new online store, CocoMia.com. As a new company they were looking for different ways to advertise and market their shop, which brought them to my blog.

With endless options for online shopping, it has become a very competitive and saturated market. It’s nice to have options, it makes finding the best deal easier as you compare and contrast prices on the exact same item between 10 different online stores. However, it can also make online shopping more questionable. You have to ask yourself, is this a reliable company, is this a quality product, are they accurately portraying their products? With these questions constantly at the back of my mind, it’s nice to find store you feel comfortable shopping at, and CocoMia.com has become one of them.

While their website leaves a little to be desired, and their shelves aren’t fully stocked, I still found a number of items I would like to see decorating my home, added to my jewelry collection, and gift ideas for multiple people. Their products are trendy, quirky, fun; reminiscent of the often off-the-wall and popular items at stores like Urban Outfitters.  This is a great place to shop for tweens, teens, and twenty-somethings, and will offer very unique gifts.

As I perused the shop at times I was put off by the odd spacing of product photos and blank spaces, leading me to believe all their items were listed on one page, when in actuality there were still multiple pages to click through. Despite this, their products were interesting enough to keep me looking through, clicking on, and reading descriptions. I was impressed by the range of products they offered and the very affordable prices. This is the type of shop that makes staying trendy easy.

After looking at all their products, it was time to get down to business. I had the opportunity to select an item to use, review, and share with you. Although it was difficult to choose just one item, after considering an octopus sculpture, coral design bowl, and envelope themed purse, I finally decided on an adorable, silver, scissor necklace. 

After all I am an art teacher, crafter, collager, and constantly have a pair of scissors nearby. I felt the scissors were speaking to me through the computer screen, telling me it was meant to be. Although there were dimensions listed in the description, the single picture on a white background left me wondering what it would look like in person. I placed my order, and eagerly awaited it’s arrival.

It took a little bit longer than expected to arrive, but the account executive was in continuous contact to ensure the delivery made it to my doorstep. The nice thing about many of these start up companies are their dependable customer service departments. I was very pleased with my choice when I finally got through the many layers of packaging to my scissors necklace. I loved the fact that it actually opened and closed, and couldn’t wait to wear it to school the next day. Since it has arrived in the mail a few weeks ago, I have already gotten a lot of wear out of it, and a lot of compliments. It’s a creative, quirky, well made necklace, and I know it will be in my jewelry rotation for a long time to come!
