A few months ago, Cosy Home was invited to take part in a campaign to help launch eBay’s new ‘collections’ feature in the UK. As an avid fan of eBay and a very regular eBay purchaser, it was like a match made in heaven!
Introducing eBay Collections
The idea behind the new eBay collections tool is that it provides you with a simple and easy way of gathering together your ideas and passions – from furniture you’ve got your eye on, to clothing, crafty goodies, collectables or wallpaper ideas. It’s a bit Pinterest-esque in style and provides a visual pin board where you can collect together shopping inspiration.
Although eBay already has the ability to let you watch individual items and follow sellers, it’s now much easier to be able to compare ideas and different products when you can see them alongside each other on your collections boards. If you’ve got a particular decorating theme or colour scheme you’re working towards, it’s great to be able to see how items might look if used together. Plus, as you can choose to make your collections public, it’s also easier to be able to share your passions and ideas with friends, family or anyone using the site.
The eBay UK Collections tool officially launched last week, so we’re excited to be able to finally share our collections with you. As our passion is interior design, our collections are of course all based around ideas for our home. We’ve created a dozen collections so far, which you can see in full here, and will be updating them regularly and adding more ideas in the months to come.
To whet your appetite, here’s some insight into a few of the collections we’ve created:
Create a Cosy Home
It was only natural that one of our collections should focus on creating a cosy home! This one has proved particularly popular and has been trending on the eBay collections homepage this week. It’s full of ideas for making your home cosy, from warm bedding and soft rugs, to cosy fires, flickering candles and knitted cushions.
Beautiful Shabby Chic
As you know, we love all things shabby chic. eBay is a great place to search for shabby chic home bargains, as we found whilst creating this collection. The Beautiful Shabby Chic collection includes ideas for homely wallpaper, unique furniture, ornate mirrors, pretty storage and finishing touches to help you make your house a home.
The Joy of Driftwood
We think there’s something special about driftwood. The way it’s been tossed and turned, carved and worn through its journey in the sea. Used in the home, it can add a special air of rustic charm. Amongst the many sellers on eBay are craftspeople, who create beautiful homeware pieces and objects d’art from reclaimed driftwood. Our Joy of Driftwood collection celebrates the uniqueness of driftwood and offers plenty of ideas for items you can buy and add to a special place in your home.
The collection includes cleverly designed clocks, candle holders, mirrors, fruit bowls and coat hooks, to name but a few. And if you fancy creating your own individual piece from driftwood, but don’t live near a beach, you could even buy a bundle of raw driftwood pieces!
These are just a handful of our curated collections – some of our others include Classic Cath Kidston, Pretty Pastels, Crafty Homeware Kits, Perfect Patchwork and Heartfelt Home Decor. So head over to eBay now to check them all out. Don’t forget to follow Cosy Home Blog on eBay too, to keep up-to-date with our new finds and bargain buys!
We’ve loved collating our collections, so hope you do too.
