Ebay Searching

I am an eBay search-a-holic.  Checking eBay has now become a habit before bedtime, when I'm bored, after reading a shelter mag or design blog.  With that being said, I have created multiple 'saved searches' in 'My eBay' that make it easy to indulge in my new habit.

Just for fun, I thought I'd share some of my saved searches in the hopes that I am not the only one out there frequently searching eBay for their dream purchases.  

A few of my favorites:

Silver Mint Julep (for future Kentucky Derby entertaining & mint julep serving)
Silver Tea Set
Noritake Silver Palace (my wedding china)
Reed & Barton Francis I (my silverware pattern)
Blanc de Chine
Hollywood Regency

Sigh...I want to eat a beautifully decorated piece of cake with this fork!

I love blanc de chine temple/ginger jars, so pretty!

Handpainted Sevres porcelain is exquisite!  The gilding on this vase makes my heart go pitter-patter!  Oh, to feel like Marie Antoinette...

For what items do you frequently search eBay?  Or are you a One Kings Lane, RubyLane or Etsy searcher?  I'd love to hear!


  1. OMG - I have a thing for Sevres porcelain as well!!! It's so - for lack of a better word - old school! : )
    i just search but i have only bought on ebay twice so I am only a voyeur.

  2. LOL, Coulda! I'm the same, it's so expensive, you have to find the perfect deal OR be utterly obsessed with a particular piece.
