Looking to sell collectibles, antiques, art or jewelry? The Indiana Design Center will host Everything But The House Drop-off Day 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on July 31.
EBTH is an online estate sale and consignment marketplace for vintages, antiques and collectibles. According to EBTH, the company offers a global marketplace and community of buyers and sellers that has transformed the traditional estate sale model, while preserving the fundamental charm of searching for something special. EBTH has a full-service model for online estate sale transactions including photography, cataloging, marketing, curation, payment and delivery. EBTH reports that, through their community, proceeds are typically three to five times higher than a conventional estate sale.
“Knowing the IDC’s reputation as a premier showplace and marketplace for top designers, we knew there would be great synergy with them as a venue for the design community,” said Megan Powell, EBTH relationship manager. “This ultimately led to EBTH becoming a professional member of the IDC, which is a new partnership that the Indianapolis EBTH team is extremely excited about.”
Participants must complete the form at partners.ebth.com/idc to ensure items are eligible for consignment. Powell said top sellers include jewelry, original art, rugs, decor, fine china, silver and crystals. Items must be valued at least $150 and in good to excellent condition.
Participants can drop-off eligible items at the Grand Hall main entry of IDC between 10 a.m. – 2 p.m. on July 31. EBTH will then photograph, catalogue and upload the items to EBTH.com. Online auctions last up to seven days and reach more than 800,000 registered bidders across 100 countries. Participants will receive a check for 60 percent of the final sale price 20 days after the close of the sale.
