Online Estate Sales — Everything But The House

If you’ve been around these parts, you know I’m a sucker for estate sales. A couple months ago, I even wrote a how-to-guide explaining all the ins and outs. Where to find estate sales, what to expect, how to pay, what to bring, etc… But, what do you do when there are no estate sales in your area? Or maybe you work every weekend. Or maybe you just had quadruplets. Or maybe you just don’t like people and want to stay home…which is totes okay if you do. Don’t you worry; I’ve got you covered. There’s thing fun little site I know called Everything But The House where you can attend online estate sales 24/7 all over the US. Yep, you read that right! You wanna shop an estate sale in Los Angeles while living in Buford, Wyoming wearing jammies in bed at 3:17am, you can!

A White Tank Top and Lesson Learned

Sometimes I have a really hard time falling asleep. My mind is racing about a work deadline, a blog post idea, my oldest got in trouble at school, my youngest decided to cut her own hair, random errands I forgot to run, a unicorn bell I sold on Chairish and totally forgot to ship. You know, normal life chaos that everyone deals with. When I can’t turn my brain off, I tend to scroll through my favorite vintage sites. From tufted navy blue velvet sofas to coral channel back chairs to mid-century lighting, slowly but surely these pretty treasures lull me to dreamy-dreamy land.

A plain white tank top hanging on a wire coat hanger with a "M" on a tag sticking out of it. No color. Black and white pencil drawing.

About a month or so ago, late one night, I was scrolling through Everything But The House and found some art I really adored. Like “I must have this” adoration. I’m not sure what really drew me in, I mean, it was just a picture of a tank top. A plain white tank top hanging on a wire coat hanger with a “M” on a tag sticking out of it. No color. Black and white. Simple. At first I thought it was photograph but after reading the item description, I learned it was an original pencil drawing. Signed, but by no one in particular…well, I can’t say that for sure…you actually can’t make out the signature. With every second I stared at it, I adored it even more. It was simply stunning.
