Several years ago, I wandered into the gift shop on a cruise ship, and discovered Bijoux Terner’s ten dollar wonders. Bijoux Terner sells trendy accessories: watches, handbags, evening bags, shawls, scarves, belts, sandals, jewelry and more and everything is just $10.00!
Fashionable items that cost less than a sandwich and a soda? It didn’t seem possible, but it is. In fact, Bijoux Terner is not just sold on cruise ships and airports, they also have some franchise stores as well.
If you haven’t seen Bijoux Terner displays in an airport, or perhaps in a shopping mall, you have been missing one of the best bargains in fashion accessories. The company was founded in 1974 in Miami, Florida. Their claim to fame is the one, low price. The accessories aren’t the same quality as those in pricey boutiques, but for for trendy accessory items, you can’t go wrong.
With weddings, graduations and other special events nearly upon us, Bijoux Terner is a perfect place to snap up an attractive (and cheap) evening bag. Why spend more for a tiny purse you hardly ever wear? The top photo on this blog posts shows a display of some of the current Bijoux Terner evening bags. My favorite is champagne colored clutch with silver toggle clasp Style #WT08805-2 (third row down, second from right)This satiny bag is large enough to actually hold all your essentials, and still look elegant for evening. There’s even an inside pocket and two little hooks for a detachable silver link chain, in case you want to wear it as a shoulder bag.
Ward off an evening chill or cover a bare dress with one of Bijoux Terner’s “Pashmina” Shawls in soft, 100% vicose. These are not cheap, skinny little things…they’re luxe, full sized shawls (you could wear one as a swimsuit wrap in a pinch), complete with knotted fringes. The shawls are made in India and feel silky and soft. As you can see from the photo, they come in a rainbow of colors. Pink or light peach are perfect for a garden party wedding and great for your bridesmaids if their dresses just need a little cover-up at the reception.
Bijoux Terner has all sorts of watches and fashion jewelry, too. I don’t have specific product photos, but there’s lots of choose from, as you can see from the photo. For example, a nickel and lead-free metallic, gold, square bangle Style #01928-7 is a bold statement with the luxury of a hinged center for easy on/off. For the fashionista mom or maybe a new graduate, large, “lacy” matte silver half circle earrings on delicate, silvery wires Style #0233875 are nickel and lead free, and truly look like you found them in an exotic bazaar, or a craft fair. No matter what you buy you can’t go wrong…everything is just $10.00!
