I shopped at Falloon.com many many times. Every year as Christmas nears, I visit again to see what is new. Since I have much experience shopping at unknown online stores, I want to be sure that the great ones get the five stars they deserve. This is one of the great ones! If that’s not enough to make you shop there, than read on.
Where the heck did Falloon.com come from?
I honestly have NO IDEA how I found this site. Just one day years ago, during a random shopping experience, I visited it. I was quickly excited by a lot of the products I found. I couldn’t wait to make a purchase!
I explored the site and found that they are based Anadarko, OK, a city I have never heard of and they are owned by Centauri Corp, a company I have never heard of. Yet back then I trusted any site online, so I went ahead and made the purchase. Many purchases and many years later, I am happy to fully recommend this site!
Their site is so, simple and boring – how can they sell great products?
A common misunderstanding amongst some online shoppers is that if the website is Fancy and Pretty – the products are good… if the website is boring and not very well designed – the products are crap. This is simply not the case with Falloon.com. Yes they don’t have a lot of fancy site design. Yes they are mostly text links. Yes their images are not the clearest. But even so, I can still say YES, their products are great.
You have to realize that some stores don’t have the web design abilities or the money to hire expensive designers – it doesn’t mean that their products aren’t good. Perhaps they focus the time and money they would have wasted designing the website and put it towards the products themselves. Everything I’ve ever purchased has been of Low Low price, and High quality.
Ok, so the products are great, what are they?
Let me start by listing some of the products I have purchased from there (all of great quality I must add!)
BirthStone Angels (http://www.falloon.com/30815.asp) – For less than 10$ you can get a cute little angel colored to match any birthstone. I purchased one for myself and one for a friend. I like them a lot!
Dolphin Oil Warmer (http://www.falloon.com/31116.asp) – This was a gift for a friend. It’s real cute and I probably will buy myself one too. Again, under 10$
Dolphin Bracelet – I bought this awhile ago and can’t find it on the site but it was a cute chain of dolphins and colored stones. My sister bought me a similar chain for twice the price! They look like a set when I wear them together. No one would know one was only 20$ and the other was 40!
Panda Cork Sculpture (http://www.falloon.com/24603.asp) – Another Gift which was well received. A thin glassed-in cork sculpture of two pandas. The features are so delicate it’s amazing! Under 10$
Tie Dye Candle Lamp (http://www.falloon.com/30321.asp) – This cute candle holder looks like a lamp from the 70s. The colorful lamp shade lights up when I light the candle inside. Only 12$.
So now you see the variety of stuff I have purchased from this store. There has been more but I can’t think of it all right now! Overall the products are unique designs from all over the world. Categories include: Decorating & Collectibles, Clocks, Angels, Animals, Dragons, Sea Life, – actually I get the overall feeling of Animals when I look at this site. There are other designs and products, but Animal products are what I shop for the most!
I could go on and on about all the cool things they have, but let me just give you some random category stats:
Candle Holders (12 pages)
Glass Creations (9 pages)
Elephants (4 pages)
Dragons (8 pages)
Dolphins (6 pages)
My point is, if you have an obsession with a certain Animal, or thing, you’ll probably find a lot of unique products containing those things! In one sentence – Falloon’s products are decorative.
Can’t I just buy this stuff at a more popular store?
Um, NO! I have never seen anything like the products I have purchased at any other store. These unique designs seem to be Falloon originals. It’s possible you’ll find them on the web somewhere else, but the prices at Falloon are so cheap! Most items I looked at were less than 10, or between 10-20$. They do have more expensive products thrown in the mix, but those are only if you want to spend the money.
The prices are cheap, but do they get you on the shipping?
The one thing that keeps me returning to this site is this sentence you’ll see at the top of every page “Free Shipping on Orders Over $20.00”. You only need to buy any 2 products and you get free shipping! How cool is that! Most places would charge you extra to ship fragile items such as these, but Falloon does not.
Don’t believe me? Try their cool shipping options calculator (http://www.falloon.com/Shipping.asp) It will show you what your options are depending on where you live and how much you spend. Rush orders are expensive, but I’ve always done Free shipping, and I’ve always gotten my products within 2 weeks.
Should I create an account?
Yes create an account now. There aren’t any member discounts, but there are lots of cool tools! As a member I have my Favorites List (which even shows me what products are In Stock), My Reminders (which I can set to email me up to 3 times anytime between 0-90 days before an event), My Gift Registry and My Watch List (which will notify me when Items I want become available).
Is there anything else I need to know about this place?
As an added note, Falloon excepts Paypal! So if you are worried to give a site your credit card, now you don’t have to. I don’t know of many other sites that take Paypal as a payment method, but I wish they would. You can also use physical checks or electronic checks. Their are no limits to how they will take your money.
Is this the end?
I’ve finished reviewing this site, and after looking at it for my review, I can’t wait to make my next purchase! I’ve already found a few more items I want to look at, and I know there is an endless amount that I haven’t even seen yet. Falloon.com is the place to go if you want to get unique decorative items for your house or for a gift! Check it out.
