It’s a big day for one of my favorite sources for vintage furniture and decor, EBTH. They’re completely relaunching their site with a streamlined logo and more ways to shop their great estate sales. EBTH is one of the greatest sites for scoring vintage finds and antique furniture from the comfort of your own home like I shared in this post last year. EBTH’s auction-style bidding process is easy to use – bids in the last five minutes give the sale an extra five minutes. EBTH also offers pick-up for local sales, or shipping if you’re shopping out of your area. They expanded into the Atlanta area last February, so I’ve been shopping their local sales for fun discoveries like vintage champagne coupes and gold flatware. I love shopping for large sets of silverware or glasses to stockpile for dinner parties! To celebrate their website relaunch, they’ve offered to give one of you a $100 gift card to shop their site. Make sure to enter the giveaway widget and shop some of my favorite finds from their national estate sales below… Read More
I’m eyeing those beautiful gold-rimmed Lenox bowls, and their currently bidding at only $1… And both of those area rugs are such steals! The thrill of the hunt is almost as good as rummaging through dusty piles in person – only cleaner and easier! You can explore all of their sales here (there are even some fabulous finds in Palm Springs). What are you itching to bid on?

I am super excited to share with you the new online auction website Everything But the House, where you can shop estate sales from across the country (at least part of it, for now) for pickup or delivery! EBTH makes it fun and easy to purchase elements with character and history in spaces that need personalization. I have a lot of sentimentality towards heirloom pieces because they can remind me of home and my grandmother, as well as ground a room that feels too perfect or new. Rooms need something funky and unexpected to give them energy and life. In my latest design project, my dad was starting with a small collection of furniture and decor and needed a few things to beef up his collection and create a lived-in feel for the rooms, and vintage items with history fit the ticket perfectly! I’m teaming up with EBTH as they expand into Atlanta in February to bring you advice and inspiration for finding and bidding on great finds on their site and using them to create a layered, storied look in your home.
Bidding on EBTH is similar to eBay, but the system is more traditional (bids in the last five minutes extend the auction five more minutes to give everyone a fair chance) and the selection is smaller, making it easier to search and find what you want. My only advice would be this: if you plan to ship, check the shipping estimate before bidding so you can get a sense of what you’re willing to pay. What’s super exciting about a lot of these pieces is that many of them might shine with a new coat of paint or reupholstered with a bold fabric, so there are lots of opportunities for DIY projects and fun personalization… Do you see anything that catches your eye?
