What is an Estate Sale?
How many estate sales have you been to? The answer for me, is just one. One little estate sale, but I have to admit that I liked it. If you are like I was, then you’re probably wondering exactly what happens at an estate sale. An estate sale is when someone opens up their home to allow people in to purchase their things. These are often held after someone passes away, when someone is trying to satisfy big financial obligations, or when someone is simply trying to liquidate her assets quickly.
Online Estate Sales Marketplace
While I was searching the web for a price comparison for an item listed on my online thrift store, I stumbled upon this great online estate sale marketplace, Everthing But the House (EBTH). This website is so great because it allows you to purchase items and have them delivered right to your doorstep. Now, I know that this won’t replace the thrill of finding treasure at an estate sale in person, but how convenient is it to get your goods delivered straight to your home?! The website has a very clean, user-friendly layout. EBTH offers a vast selection of items that range from antiques to high-end designer handbags and apparel. Their antique furniture collection is drool-worthy. I absolutely love a good piece of wooden antique furniture! Think of EBTH as a refined, trendy, and modern Ebay of the estate sale world. Most of the items that I have seen have to be bid on, but the items are still very affordable for what you’re getting.
My Favorite Things
I am loving this pair of mid century “Arcadia” chairs listed on the EBTH website. They’re going for only $75 for the pair. That’s a no-brainer.
I’ve always wanted a footed soaker tub like this antique zinc bathtub, but I don’t even want to think about what the cost for shipping is for this baby!
Then there’s this cute little green, quilted, leather Chanel wallet for $235. I’m so sure that it sold for at least 3 times that price when it was new in the boutique.
Why are you still reading this?! If I were you, I’d already have another tab open to Everything But the House; trying to see what I could find. If you love thrifting, estate sales, and online shopping, you’re guaranteed to love Everything But the House! Noooo, this is not a paid review, but it could have been!
