Are you familiar with Everything But the House (EBTH)? I discovered them earlier this year and have been obsessed with their site ever since.
EBTH describes itself as “estate sales reinvented.” They are an online estate sale which means you can shop locally or nationally.
Here’s how it works:
- Individuals/families contact EBTH to help them sell a home full of items.
- EBTH experts sort, evaluate, photograph, and describe every item to be sold.
- The sale goes live! All sales run 7 days and each item starts at $1. EBTH manages the payment, pickup, and shipment of the items.
I participated in a local auction and began bidding on three items. However, I decided I just HAD to have this ornate bench. Luckily I won the auction, and a few days later I went to the south side of Indianapolis to pick up my beautiful piece!
You can have the items shipped, but I bid on a local auction knowing I could save on shipping by picking up the item myself.
The auction was on the most beautiful property with the cutest red barn which just added to the EBTH charm.
I was greeted by friendly EBTH staff who were incredibly kind and organized. They immediately knew where to find my bench.
In a few minutes, it was loaded into my car for me.
I love the ornate bench. It’s extra-long and fits at the end of my bed perfectly.
I fell in love with the bench because of all the details.
However, it has some paint scrapping off (EBTH fully disclosed this in their detailed photos before I purchased), so stay tuned. This piece will get a pretty little makeover.
I love my new EBTH bench, and the auction process was SO fun!
Go create something!
