The Internet marketplace eBay connects buyers and sellers from all over the world to transact over myriad items. Collectibles writer Ettinger demystifies the eBay bidding/buying experience to show how furniture, decorative accessories, window treatments, flooring, lighting, and the like can be purchased. Although decorating advice by designer Tracy Bross is included, what makes this book special is its explanation of how to navigate eBay with suggestions on categories to search and the how-tos on composing and narrowing a search, determining costs, and identifying reputable sellers. The five rooms decorated by the Dream Room Contest finalists entirely with eBay purchases appear in color photos. Purchase for public libraries. Copyright 2005 Reed Business Information.
