I have been buying Paparazzi jewelry for over a year. I am not a consultant and need to sell some of it because I have entirely too much. Where can I resell it?
There is a boatload for sale online so that is probably not the best place since supply is high and that is going to drive prices down.
Your best bet is a flea market or yard sale or a consignment store.
If you decide to do online sales, don't be surprised if people hassle you about it. Their independent consultants have rules about online sales...their bylaw state in #5.10 Online Activity..Independent Consultants may not use any online forum (eBay, classifieds, Craigslist, or any other online retail tool) to bundle, distribute, or sell Paparazzi products. I have found people are very unkind sometimes and don't believe you are not an affiliate. Not worth the hassle in my opinion for such low resale values.
Selling personal Paparazzi jewelry can be a real hassle if you try to sell on any of the popular auctions sites and the price you can ask is very limited as most pieces are still available from consultants for the prices set by the company.
You really need to do a lot of research before trying to sell your items as so many listings are pulled down from almost every website.
When researching, it will be difficult to always tell if the site is giving advice about 'personal' items or as a consultant so read carefully.
Try Google with all kinds of questions:
where can I sell personal Paparazzi jewelry?
problems selling Paparazzi jewelry online?
what can I charge for Paparazzi jewelry?

Paparazzi Accessories started with sisters Misty and Chani and their passion evolved into the MLM business with their husbands. Paparazzi Accessories (also known as Paparazzi Jewelry) was established in 2010 in Hurricane, Utah (their headquarters is still located there). This company is known for their unique jewelry and accessories which are very affordable.
All of these businesses offer their representative to consultants the opportunity to make a profit by selling jewelry directly to their friends, relatives, neighbors, etc. The profits are made when reps purchase wholesale jewelry from the business and then sell it to others at a marked up price. Most jewelry MLMs require that their reps first purchase starter packages that enable them to enroll in the business and give them some product to sell. And as I understand it, they cannot choose the assortment of the purchased package, at least not always.
According to Paparazzi Policies and Procedures, consultants cannot advertise items using the Paparazzi logo for more than $ 5 unless it says plus tax (same thing for the $ 1 items), except for those in the Zi Collection - these are priced at $ 25.
As you can imagine, consultants are investing enough money in this business, and I'm not sure if it is easy for them to sell all these jewelry. Therefore, so that you do not have problem, it is better not to write that you have Paparazzi Accessories. As I understand it, you bought these jewelry for your own use and wore them. This means that you have removed the labels. So sell your jewelry without labels and without specifying that it is Paparazzi Jewelry. But it is best to sell them this way among acquaintances and not online.

I have a great deal of costume jewelry that I no longer use and would like to get rid of. I would prefer to either sell or donate it. Any ideas how I can do this?
By Rita from Rossville, Il
Check out eBay; and get an inkling what prices go for; find a consignment shop and see if it's worth your time to put in there!
Christmas bazaar's will be here shortly; why not see about getting a booth or going in with someone to try and sell them there?
If this is actual vintage jewelry, there are people who buy it for resale, because vintage clothing and jewelry are really popular right now.
If you have a nursing home nearby, they may love to have a donation of costume jewelry. The homes around my area give things like that out as prizes at bingo games and other activities.
If you are into crafts at all, here is a great idea that I ran across in some craft magazine years ago. I always wanted to make one, but never got around to doing it. I didn't have the old jewelry to do it with either, but you do. If I could remember the source of this picture, I would gladly share it, but all I have is the picture. It's still one of my "dream things to do".
Good Luck to you,
One thing I have used them for is bingo gifts. I volunteer at shelters and church events. The jewelry makes wonderful gifts for the moms and daughters. I even have had a few boys get jewelry when they won, to give to their moms! :)
I had jewelry I no longer wanted so I took it to a local pawn shop and sold it for it's weight in silver and gold. I ended up with close to $300 for a small hand full of items. Even if you don't like the price they offer you, they will at least tell you what you could possibly get for some of the pieces.
