It’s a rather practical sign-off for the year, we know, but to paraphrase William Morris, things can be either beautiful or useful to be worthwhile, preferrably both of course. This two-seater Ikea Lycksele double sofabed is certainly useful, and as it’s a neutral colour and style it’s beautiful enough.
Bidding ends December 22 at 8.08pm.
Now my friends, Daily eBay is officially signing off until January 5, when we’ll be back with plenty more stylish finds and guest editors. We love Daily eBay, and we know you do too. Thanks for the fun, and for keeping stylish items out of landfill in 2008, and look forward to seeing you next year for more good work in the name of recycling and re-using.
There will be a small treat instore for you before January 5, though, as we reveal what made the Top 10 eBay finds of 2008, as measured by what you clicked on most. Fascinating stuff. Look out for that. Infact, subscribe to our newsletter above and we’ll alert you when it goes live.
Big love, and merry Christmas from all at greenmystyle.com!
