Treasure hunting on Ebay

Ebay astounds me on a regular basis. And by astounds, I mean in both the good... and the not so good (or weird) way. I am an ebay veteran and have gotten some lovely little treasures and great finds, like bulk candles and paper lanterns for my wedding, a lightly loved (read: a little less than new) vintage designer bag I normally wouldn't be able to own, and brand new items from Anthro-past that I missed out on.

But to be fair, ebay is also a bit of a weird concept and there are also some of the strangest things being sold (and I guess bought)... like this. And this. WTF.

I found (and won!) a gorgeous Anthropologie Moulinette Soeurs brand new with tags dress on ebay this week. It's a knee length, watercolor plaid halter dress, with gorgeous hues of orange, purples and browns. Its a-line (my love!) with great shaping in the bodice and a comfy smocked panel in the back so it'll be sure to fit nicely. In true Anthro-style it's fully lined with 1.5-inch bright yellow embroidered lace trim. It's the little things that get me.

I remember this dress, and missed out on it way back when, so very squealy that I was able to get my grubby little hands on it now. Happy Monday to everyone! :-)

  1. That really is a pretty dress. Congratulations on winning it! I don't shop on eBay, but sometimes it's handy to go there for garment measurements because eBay sellers are better about spelling that out than retailers are.
