Ebay Bargains and Garage Sales

I have found some great buys on ebay and at garage sales! I have saved an enormous amount of dollars by shopping carefully and i don’t think the quality of the furniture or accessories has been compromised in the process. Here are just a few of the bargains i have found.  I will let the pictures do the talking. 🙂

We found this chaise on ebay. It was still in the plastic! The owners were moving interstate and didn’t want to take it. Hooray!

We scored two carvers and ten regular chairs from the same ebay seller that was selling the chaise. We managed to get the chaise and twelve chairs in total for an absolute steal! And they are all gorgeous!

I bought this table and two bench seats at a garage sale….the same place where i found the cool bottles. The owners were lovely and generous people. I LOVE this setting.

Happy Thursday!!   🙂

    Love, love, love… especially the chaise. That must have been a local-pickup, or I imagine shipping would have negated a great deal…

    I am so enamored of craigslist/estate sales/ebay… I do not understand why people buy new stuff. I mean, I can understand a sofa or something. But to me, other people’s unwanted stuff is the greatest thing ever!!

      I almost choked when i saw the chaise on ebay! i couldn’t hit the “buy it now” button quick enough!! I love, love, love the chaise. It’s living in the loft upstairs (the main bedroom) and i can’t wait to spend an arvo lying on it reading a book.
      Yes – why buy new? yes new beds, sofas etc….but i agree, other people’s stuff is great! 🙂

    all great stuff…what an eye you have! why would you buy new stuff when you have such a talent for spotting well designed and constructed vintage?

      Yes, why would you buy new! The amount I’ve spent is starting to add up, but when i consider the price tag of new items i know I’ve saved a considerable amount.
