History has taught us that during difficult times, great art is created and flourishes. In the spirit of looking through others’ eyes and experiencing the world beyond our own singular vision, we’re sharing some of our favorite pieces of vintage art from EBTH. Here’s to reimagining our world, our future and allowing ourselves to create and share the best version of ourselves with everyone.
If you’re new to this series, check out our first two Estate Sale posts here and here. EBTH, aka Everything But The House, is an endless online estate sale, full of so many vintage treasures. Bonus: Our $500 EBTH gift card giveaway is still on, so hop over the EBTH, pick your treasure and share it in the comments section to be entered! –Caitlin
EBTH works like this — you bid on the items like you would on eBay and you receive email notifications if you win the auction or if you get outbid. You can search by what’s ending the soonest, by most popular, by city, or your own custom search term like “brass” or “pink” (in my case!). When pieces are listed with those keywords, you’ll be notified. Items can be shipped and you can calculate shipping costs before you bid. Larger pieces have hefty shipping fees that can often be more expensive than the item itself, but if you’re in love with a piece, it will most likely be less expensive, even with shipping charges, than the price you’d pay buying it from a reputable dealer in a larger market like NY or LA.
Our absolute favorite thing about EBTH is every piece starts at $1. None of this outrageous starting pricing like some high-end sites. It irritates me when I see a wonderful vintage piece only to find out it is already overpriced and the shipping cost makes it overpriced by 300%.
Now to the fun-for-you part! We’re giving away a $500 gift card to EBTH. Here’s how you enter to win:
- Go to EBTH and have a look around.
- Pick at least one favorite piece that you’d use your gift to buy.

I’ll see you back here next week with some of our favorite vintage jewelry and clothing!
