Jumbo Jewelry armoire: I'm angry
I bought the Jumbo Jewelry armoire some time ago but only put it up yesterday. https://www.hsn.com/products/over-the-door-66-jumbo-jewelry-armoire/7978396?variant=7978400
I’m posting my feelings here because HSN is not allowing me to
write a review.
The armoire has so little clearance, it catches with even one item on each hook. Any bracelets cause it to catch, and you can’t put anything on the pegs near the edges. I opened the armoire this morning to get a necklace, and the rack and pegs that held the long necklaces had fallen off, with all my necklaces laying at the bottom. I figured, well maybe this will allow me to put more necklaces on the other side. No such luck. It still catches, even with a sparse array of necklaces with no more than one on each hook. I have the regular armoire from the same maker, and it holds significantly more than the jumbo one. Did they not test the thing out before they sold it? If you have dainty jewelry, it might work for you, but if you have Heidi Daus, forget it.
Moral of the story is don’t wait until after 30 days to open something. This is really a piece of junk, and I’m angry that I spent nearly $200 on it.
I love mine. It is the perfect place for all my big southwestern bracelets and necklaces. No problems here. I have two of the small units and added the larger one. They make it so easy to see all your jewelry and don’t take up much space. Sorry you guys have had a bad experience. I think it is a great item.
Imenja, sorry to hear this happened to you. I just posted about my experience on the ‘Shop to You Drop3’ thread. Check it out.
In my case it was the pegs that are under the mirror side that completely separated from the backing. The backing also broke. I wont buy a new one. Maybe ours were made at the same time because some people have not had any issues.
Take a look at the bar, in my case, there was clear tape rolled attached to maybe duct tape. No screws.
I just purchased Colleen’s ‘Everything Quilted’ box as a replacement and will stick with her boxes from now on. Her Earrings boxes are back in stock so I hope to get one next month.
Colleens boxes have the anti tarnish. The over the door style does not.
I also had the same problem with catching and actually damaged 2 necklaces.
No more for me…..
Yes, the bar had no screws, only glue.
Did you figure out why yours caught? I keep trying to figure out
Where the problem is but can’t.
I’ll look for your post.
