This summer we planned an epic road trip in a rented minivan that circled through Utah, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, Wyoming, and Idaho. The inspiration for our trip was the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks-- well that and the free domestic flights we'd earned with credit card miles! I knew the 2-week 2,000+ miles itinerary was ambitious, but I struggled to cross anything off our list. With the kids getting older I wasn't sure we'd have another chance to travel to these places together.
My addiction to antique shows and yard sales came to an abrupt end once I had kids. Driving around back roads and browsing through aisles of fragile nick-nacks is pretty difficult with kids in car seats and strollers. Online person-to-person sales were appealing for a while, but my interest wore off pretty quickly after coming across some sketchy sellers.
So I was super excited by the launch of a new online auction site, Everything But The House (EBTH) that allows you to browse online, bid, and complete the entire transaction with a trusted professional service. Items can either be shipped or picked-up from a number of EBTH warehouses across the country. [Tip: If I'm shopping for furniture, I specifically look for sales in my city so that I can pick it up and avoid shipping costs.]
For deal hunters, the best part is that with no reserve prices, some items go for as little as a DOLLAR! If you love a deal and are on the hunt for mid-century pieces, original artwork, sterling silver, vintage holiday decorations or estate jewelry, EBTH is definitely worth checking out.
