Confession time: I am a major eBay addict.
I shop a lot on my favourite online auction site (I really should get back to selling as well) and over the years have bought lots of home-related products on the auction site. For example, everything from new furniture at cheaper prices than the high street, to a second-hand local dining table and chairs, modern headboards, paintings by my favourite artist, out of production crockery lines, kitchen bits and pieces, and various home accessories.
So when eBay got in touch a few months ago and asked if I’d like to be involved in the launch of a new feature on eBayUK, I bet you can guess the answer…
Introducing eBay Collections
eBay’s new Collections feature officially launched this month. It’s an easy-to-use way of collecting together ideas and inspirations on eBay. It can be things you’d like to buy, things you covet, future ideas for furniture or décor inspiration for different rooms in your home. If you’re already familiar with Pinterest, then eBay Collections is very similar in style, as you end up with individual boards of collections, which are very visual.
In addition to creating your own collections, the social element means that you can also follow other users, some of their collections or both. For example, you can follow Fresh Design Blog on eBay or follow a specific collection, such as Orla Kiely Home, with its home and decorating ideas focusing on the lovely designs of Orla Kiely, or Scandi Style, which features ideas for home furnishings, furniture and decor with a Scandinavian feel to it.
Fresh Design Blog collections on eBay
I created a range of collections for the launch of the feature, and have been updating them regularly since, with more new collections coming soon.
As a bit of a taster here are some examples of my collections.
Geometric Home Collection
It’s probably no surprise that I love geometric designs, as they’ve featured frequently on Fresh Design Blog. As well as incorporating lots of gorgeous geometric shapes within designs, this collection will also help add a splash of colour into your home, as many of the pieces are awash with a rainbow of colours. From wall prints and rugs, to wallpaper, cushions and clocks, you’ll find all things geometric here.
Scandi Style Collection
The fresh, clean living and stylish designs of Scandinavia have swept into UK homes and interiors. If you love all things Scandi, then check out this collection, which features soft furnishings, crockery, home accessories, clocks and furniture with a Scandi theme.
In addition, some of my other collections include Coffee and Cream, Trendy Teatowels, Cool Contemporary Blue and Cooking Companions, to name but a few. Check them all out now on eBay, and why not have a go at creating your own collections of shopping ideas?
