What: The Something Store. The concept is simple: Pay 10 bucks and you’ll receive an item in the mail. Whether it’s a gadget, a necklace, knives, jeans, it’s a mystery until you open the box. Shipping is free, making it all the more tempting to surprise yourself.
What We Say: Novelty is the spice of life, we say, and this website is the most novel we’ve heard of in a long time. Treat yourself or someone else, and there’s even a chance that the item you get is worth way more than 10 bucks. It’s fun and entertaining, and a huge departure from the usual experience of shopping online. And hey, if you don’t like it, you can always sell it and get cash for something you do really want.
Would you take the risk?
