I heart eBay.

Deep and abiding is my love for eBay.
It has seen me through my Shabby Chic era and introduced me to the "chippy" category, which now more or less defines the philosophy of my decor.

For fun, I sometimes sit in a particular room of the house and look around, recalling everything in the room that was found on eBay.

I bought our dining table on eBay for $200 a few years ago and had it transferred back to Indiana via my gracious aunt and uncle, who were in the process of commuting from Ohio to Atlanta each week.

I once bought an entire case of Outrageous Hair Volumizing shampoo on eBay. It was my shampoo of choice in high school, but has since been discontinued. I missed its smell.

I could go on and on, but I'll spare you the tales of the 3 foot tall "U" (always read the dimensions) and the search for Cinnamon Crunch Crispix.

Instead, here's a more recent eBay purchase:


Pottery Barn duvet. New, in package. $30.

I'm now on the search for a green quilt. The duvet will be packed away soon (I hope) and the white quilt has seen its better days. I'll be sure to keep you posted.

  1. Shannan,

    Any chance you'd do a post sometime with your best tips for successful shopping on ebay? I always try ebay but I dont seem to find good deals.

    Btw, I LOVE the duvet.
