Become a Collector

It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a collector. I like to collect vintagey things, textiley things and crafty things. Combine all of the above and you can understand why I have a huge collection vintage fabrics and trims that I love to sew and craft with. I also have a bit of a penchant for midcentury furniture pieces and west german pottery, they just look so good together!

Now any collector worth his or her salt is no stranger to eBay, it’s the one place you are guaranteed to find that perfect item that you’ve been missing. And now there is a new way to discover amazing treasures online, eBay Collections. eBay Collections lets you gather up all the stuff you like on eBay and organise them into themes. It’s like a big mood and inspiration board, only it’s instantly shoppable.

I really love this idea. I quite like to ‘window shop’ on ebay and now I have a way to visually gather up all my finds in one place, especially handy for all those items you don’t need right now but want to bookmark for later. But you don’t have to keep your collections to yourself (of course you can if you want to), if you set your profile to public you can share your collections with everyone.

You can see my collections here, they reflect the things that make me happy. My Pom Pom collection is especially cheerful. You can never have too many pom poms!

    THANKS A BUNCH for SHARING this timely info. In the next few days I’ll check it out. You must have money & time to make so many purchases to add continually to your collections. BRAVO! I follow your blog & about 33 others– FUN! Sarah in Minneapolis

    • Yes, I admit that sometimes collecting can get expensive but I can usually find vintage fabric that costs less than me buying new, so I don’t feel it’s too extravagant. Most collectors love the trill of the chase, when you find that perfect item in your budget it’s exciting.
      You don’t need to purchase the items in your eBay collections, so it’s sort of like virtual collecting.
      Thanks for following my blog, I’m glad you enjoy reading 🙂
