REVIEW: Pashminas from ebay

OK as promised, here is my $0.02 on my latest shopping experience:



  • The entire transaction went very smoothly, I specified in the "notes to seller" part of the transaction that I wanted 4 black and 1 red pashmina as per their "buy 4 get 1 free" promotion.

  • The order shipped very quickly, I believe I ordered it on Friday? and it got here Monday via USPS.

  • The colors are lovely and rich.

  • They are definitely NOT cashmere (not that I'm surprised for that price!) they are some type of poly-blend.

  • Each pashmina is packaged separately

  • Each pashmina is approximately 2.5' wide by 5.5' long (not including fringe length)

  • I'm a little dissapointed with the tag placement, I think it could have been placed better. Also it appears to be like a sticky iron-on tag, I gently attempted to remove it altogether on a corner - but alas it pulls the fabric too much and it looks like I will stretch and damage the weave if I go all the way.

  • Overall, I am satisfied with the product and it's going to work great to cover up my girls! And you can't beat the price (5 pashminas for $34 including shipping).


seller is "Foreverwear" on ebay http://stores.ebay.com/foreverwear

holy crap.  OK so now my card reader is magically working; I think it knew that I was about to open up the CPU!


OK so here is a couple pics, sorry these are taken with my cell phone and I tried 2 different lighting situations, the top pic is kinda blurry but it more accurately shows the true hue of the red.


holy crap OK so photo 128378-1holy crap OK so photo 128378-2

They look great for the price. Just a thought: you could get a small lable with your girl's initals and sew it over the glued on lable.

Do you think they are warm enough for a winter wedding where the temps are around 50 degrees?  I need 6 ivory ones!!!  Also how do you find the one with the one free pashmina?

I think they would be warm enough for that, but not much lower!


What I did was contact the seller first with any questions I had, then what I did was buy 4 (using the "buy it now" option, you can change the quantity after you choose "buy it now") and then in the "notes to seller" section I requested the fifth one per their listed offer.
