Verner Panton chairs

Want to buy more vintage and secondhand clothing and homewares from eBay, but don’t have the time to find the best pieces amidst the…ahem…drossy stuff? Don’t fear! Help is at hand. Every day, in the spirit of re-using and recycling, I’ll bring you one gorgeous item.

Today’s discovery is this pair of Verner Panton chairs. I have two of these already and they look fantastic with my Eero Saarinen table.

These two aren’t in best shape, but the current bid price is only 99 pence, and at anything less than £50 for the pair it would be worth finding out if they can be reconditioned. They’re a sleek shape, and such a classic piece of Twentieth Century design.

Bidding ends September 4 at 10.45am.

Want to buy more vintage and secondhand clothing and homewares from eBay, but don’t have the time to find the best pieces amidst the…ahem…drossy stuff? Don’t fear! Help is at hand. Every day, in the spirit of re-using and recycling, I’ll bring you one gorgeous item.

Today’s discovery is an eco double whammy. Not only are you re-using and saving clothes from landfill, but you’ll be re-using a product that already has green credentials. It’s this pair of Serfontaine skinny jeans.

A celebrity favourite (Sienna Miller and Madonna wear them), Serfontaine jeans are manufactured sweatshop-free using methods that prolong the life of the jean. Find out more in greenmystyle.com’s Top 10 Ethical Jeans list.

This pair is a size 25 (UK 8 – waist 34cms, leg 92cms) and carries the trademark Serfontaine fat stitching. The back pocket carries a relatively modest studded pattern. The seller describes them as an ‘mint condition’.

The start bid price is £15. With an RRP of £155, it’s not bad. Bidding ends August 28 at 10.08am.

Want to buy more vintage and secondhand clothing and homewares from eBay, but don’t have the time to find the best pieces amidst the…ahem…drossy stuff? Don’t fear! Help is at hand. Every day, in the spirit of re-using and recycling, I’ll bring you one gorgeous item.

It’s back to homewares for today’s Daily eBay. If I had room in my house I’d be snapping this one up myself. It’s the Robin Day for Habitat sofa bed.

It’s a modern authentic reproduction of a classic Robin Day design, produced by Habitat and now out of production.

The back rest drops down to reveal a larger seating area or to make room for use as a bed. It’s a lovely modernist, clean style you’ll feel proud to have.

The seller says it is in great condition, just cleaned, with a few minor marks commensurate with age. Check the pictures on eBay, plus the dimensions.

The current bid is £112 (I know, it’s still a bargain), and bidding ends on August 17, 16.06pm

If Grazia says it's hot...

Want to buy more vintage and secondhand clothing and homewares from eBay, but don’t have the time to find the best pieces amidst the…ahem…drossy stuff? Don’t fear! Help is at hand. Every day, in the spirit of re-using and recycling, I’ll bring you one gorgeous item.

I’ve been studying my Grazia autumn / winter catwalk trends report while hunting around eBay this morning, and this jacquard cape in heathery, pinky and fawn tones, is absolutely bang on trend.

Yep, capes are back for next season, and as Grazia says ‘you have to love a coat that makes your legs look thin and hides everything from neck to knees’.

This size 10 cape with sleeves is a catalogue overstock, so whilst not strictly enjoying a second life, buying it will help reduce the clothes waste mountain. The latest bid is £4.99, and bidding ends August 14 at 23.12pm.

Stylist Aimee Watkins discovered today’s find. It’s this rainbow-stripe Sonia Rykiel top.  It’s a loose style size 12. The colours – purple, pink, hot pink and red – are set to be hot favourites for autumn / winter, and I reckon this top would look great over a black long-sleeved vest, and belted. Oo yes, with black skinny jeans. I might have to bid for it myself.

Current bid is £7 and bidding ends on August 19 at 16.37pm.

Stella McCartney dress

Want to buy more vintage and secondhand clothing and homewares from eBay, but don’t have the time to find the best pieces amidst the…ahem…drossy stuff? Don’t fear! Help is at hand. Every day, in the spirit of re-using and recycling, I’ll bring you one gorgeous item.

We love Stella McCartney, and it seems that you do too. The last time we featured a great secondhand McCartney find on Daily eBay you loved it so much it got views long after the auction had ended. So, for any disappointed fans out there, here’s another gorgeous Stella McCartney dress.

This mustard dress, with bow detail, is 100% cotton and a UK size 8. There’s something of the Brideshead about it I think – and surely that’s the best looking film of the year?

The current bid price is £70, and again you’ll have to be quick as bidding ends at 8.03pm tonight.

Today it’s a discovery from personal stylist Aimee Watkins. She’s found this quite amazing cinch-waist jacket from designer Ann Allen (no, I’m not sure who she is either). The seller rightly describes it as a 1950s Dior look. Beautiful, isn’t it? Better still, its current bid price is only £4.99. Bidding ends August 12, at 8.56pm.

It’s a size 10, with a 72cm waist and 39cm shoulder. Close up, it looks immaculately tailored. I love the buttons.
