Design Porn: Ebay Collections


I absolutely love having a little bit of a rummage. I will spend hours searching through vintage shops, just to find the perfect dress. I spend my days trawling online shops to show you guys brilliant stuff. Despite this, I've never really found my online spirit home in Ebay. There's just so much to look at. That was why their new Collections platform appeals to me so much. It means you get to see the good stuff without getting lost in a list of search results, finding yourself bidding on six of the same thing at once and hoping that you only win one. Oh god, the fear.


Collections is simple: If you like someone's collection, you can follow it (give Forever Amber a follow if you like brilliant dresses, she's great at those). Which means you can keep up to date with me banging on about ceramics (don't pretend that's not hella exciting). Or you can perve over all things yellow or swoon over some beautiful Art Deco diamonds. (That ring! Oh I'm going to be dreaming of that gorgeous diamond ring forever.)


Following people who have similar interests to you is really useful. When you do a search for Orla Kiely (I do this a lot, I like all of the orange), other similar collections will pop up. Basically, brilliant people with fabulous taste are doing all of the hard work for you. The people you follow pop up on your home page so you can see their new finds straight away.


You can also make collections of your own, which is very handy for watching pieces that you're mad about. If I'd done that, maybe I'd have spotted that a Polly George butterfly teapot that I liked went for a fiver (I'm going to be smarting about that for a while). You'll even find pieces that you didn't get your hands on the first time round because everyone bought that gorgeous M&S coat while you were eating toast for dinner and waiting for payday.


Beautiful stuff, easy to find, cheap as chips. This is my kind of ebay.

  1. I imagine the girl that sold the butterfly teapot for a fiver is still smarting as well...

    1. Yeah, you might have a point about that.
