Tips for Finding the Best Gifts

Happy Thursday! Per usual, we’re ready for the weekend ;) Today we’re sharing some tips we use while shopping on eBay and some of our favorite finds!
I wanted these sunglasses during the Shopbop sale but they sold out – luckily I found them on eBay! There’s a ton of color options here (mine are the army green) and would make great gifts.

I got this scarf a couple years ago and it’s no longer available but I found an almost identical one here on eBay. It’s the closest look-a-like I’ve found!

Our tips for shopping on eBay:
– Filter items to “buy it now” so you can order the item instantly instead of stressing about bidding!
– Use the advanced search to get as specific as you want. You can search for things like descriptions, conditions, free shipping, or best offer (so useful!).
– Select the “new with tags” option so it’s guaranteed the item is brand new/never used!
– Select “free shipping” to view only those items that will ship for free!
– If you want to purchase from buyers within the US only, select “US ONLY” to view those items – there is also North America or Worldwide options to select from (we love the Worldwide option for finding amazing vintage rugs!)

I’ve been searching for a long, red coat forever…and I finally found this one (new with tags!) on eBay! Did you know that 88% of items on eBay are “Buy It Now,” which means you don’t have to sit at your computer and bid? You can just buy it right then and there like you would with any online retailer. If there’s a piece I’m lusting after, but it’s sold out, I always check eBay – last year I found a brand new Vince poncho (this one!) that was literally sold out in every store on eBay (and for less than it was in store!).

Since they offer a money back guarantee, I’m never concerned about any of my purchases…but I do look for shops/sellers with the best reviews (another tip!).
