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.
And for excess items that aren't worth auctioning, EBTH takes care of hauling them away or donating them to charity. Everyone she's worked with from EBTH's team has been responsive, patient, and helpful during the process. Although its too soon to tell how much the auction will earn, just having the help in sorting, packing, and clearing out her home was a huge help. Thanks EBTH!
