Day 9: The £3 Marc by Marc Jacobs necklace

This has to be my bargain of the month: a gold-tone 'I love you' spinner necklace for £3 from the Special Items range at Marc by Marc Jacobs. Marc Jacobs for the price of a Starbucks? Yes, really.

The only snag is, for UK shoppers it's only available from the London store at 56 South Audley Street, Mayfair. But what better excuse to visit the capital and do some Christmas shopping? There's an assortment of Special Items, for men and women, including hats and gloves, T-shirts, wellies, umbrellas, wallets, keyrings and more, so you might just get all your gifts in one go.

And, for those of you who can't make it to the store, I'm spreading some Christmas love: I've bought a necklace to give away to one lucky reader. For your chance to win, become a fan of my Facebook page and leave a comment about this story on my wall. The winner will be chosen at the end of December.

PS. By becoming a fan, you'll also be entered into my Eclectic Eccentricity jewellery competition which finishes at midday on Monday. Good luck!
