Treasure Hunters take note: Gem is your North Star

I have maxed out my eBay Saved Searches, and this app allows me to add more Saved Searches. It also helps me catch finds that I would have normally missed on eBay for whatever reason. And this has happened way more than once. There are some treasures I have been searching for decades that Gem has found in a matter of weeks. I love how it combs through sites I don’t have the time to visit every day. Or maybe didn’t even know about? And I don’t get a bad case of the FOMOs like I used to.

How to make a Five Star App even better? 1) Please give us even more searches. Eighty searches is generous, but I would be willing to pay for a Premium Membership to get more. 2) Provide users with a list of all the stores the app does search so we can recommend others. 3) Add popular sites like Mercari and possibly The Real Real to the Gem search base.

In the meantime, many thanks to the wonderful developers: Right now, I’m looking at my SILVER Borel kaleidoscope cocktail watch, which I found after searching for 38 years — thanks to you!

Developer Response ,

Thank you so much for using our app and your nice review & great feedback! All The RealReal listings are included in our app, and hopefully Mercari soon, too. There are hundreds of independent online stores included in our search, and the list grows every week. We can consider increasing the number of new item alerts and adding a source directory. We hope you will find your Borel kaleidosope watch soon!

Hands down the best way to find Vintage🏆

As a seller and buyer of vintage clothing, this is my go to for searching for vintage. I love how specific you can make your search and that it comes back with exactly what you’re looking for and not a bunch of non applicable results. The filters let you see size/price/decade/location results from various popular vintage sites (Etsy, EBay and more) and the app lets you save listings and shows you the shop names which is great as a seller as it’s yet another way to drive business to your brand.

Another favorite thing about the app is that it has an editorial section featuring interviews with vintage fashion icons, tips and tricks from stylists to seamstresses. It’s a perfect one stop shop for seeing and hearing from the diverse people that help vintage thrive👍🏾✨👏🏾

Fashion enthusiasts, take note!

This app is terrific! My online (vintage) shopping experience just became a lot easier, and a lot more funI

I love the simple and stylish layout here, across the board. Only the price is displayed next to each item that I search for, which makes it much more like browsing and shopping at an actual vintage store. I don’t want an assault of information when looking at each piece, thank you very much. For any additional information, or to buy the item, you simply click on the picture. Easy!

In addition to the ease of the shopping experience, I was also impressed by the featured style stories, and accompanying photography. The style sensibility and attention to detail displayed in each segment of this app is admirable. All in all, this is a great tool for any fashion enthusiast. I heartily recommend it!
