There was a time when eBay was a bit naff and full of second hand shoes, watched DVDs and dresses still with their labels on. Although it was great for hunting down a bargain, there was a lot of work needed to track down that fabulous one-off piece that saved you a fortune. In 2014 things are a lot different to what they once were, eBay being the place to find must-have accessories, fun home furnishings, electrical gadgets and unique fashion from sellers across the globe. I’ve spent hours searching for quirky additions to my wardrobe that I know my friends will ask about, knowing that it’s both cheaper and better than a Topshop alternative! Now eBay has launched their new ‘Collections‘ feature, they’re finally becoming a shopping force to be reckoned with; essentially a platform to allow you to curate the great things you find, eBay Collections makes shopping and searching online fun again!
I’ve curated twelve boards of my own, in collaboration with eBay, to showcase some of my favourite bits and bobs. Including shoes to revolutionise your wardrobe, quirky fashion must-haves, great makeup storage, statement accessories and even the best clutch bags for this season, there are so many bargains to be had. Suffice to say I’ve already snapped up half the contents of my boards already and couldn’t be more chuffed… A transparent perspex clutch for the cost of a Starbucks and statement cushions to match my brand new sofa? Brilliant.
To create your own Collections, all you have to do is click the little star next to a listed item that says ‘add to collections’. In a similar way to Pinterest, all you have to do is create a board and start adding the fab things you find so you don’t forget them. It’s a great way to generate inspiration, find the best slogan tshirts or compare prices of Yankee Candles. I personally think this is a great idea and am so excited to see eBay push this out across the globe so we can all get creative together.
Why don’t you check out my Collections here and start your own this weekend?
