A short while ago I was contacted by a representative for Barneby's who asked if I would like to review their new site. You know me and my bargain hunting, so I jumped at the chance. Working in a similar way to other auction websites, but with a lot more finesse, Barneby's pulls all auctions world wide to one place. From Christies, Bonham, Fellows and beyond. Just a couple of clicks and you can search across some of the major auction houses, save your searches and view all the details of the items that have taken your fancy. You can even set up search's for specific alerts. All you have to do is register. This I like very much. Very, very much.
What I like even more is the easy sub-titles you can search under. Of course I headed straight to the "Fashion and Vintage" section, natch. Closely followed by Jewellery. My, my, there are some glittery things on there. Indeed there are. I have made mention of my eBay frenzy before and just looking around the site, I could feel it bubbling up. I flitted around the site like a woman slightly possessed, clicking away at all the pretties. The listings mostly consisted of one off garments or pieces as opposed to job lots, the information precise and the pictures clear.
At first, I did find the guide prices were a little off putting. However, they are just guide and you never can tell what is going to happen when the bidding opens. That is all of the thrill for me. The chances of getting something amazing for a snip of the price or being pipped at the post by someone who wanted it a little bit more and could splash more cash. There are a couple of items below that I shall be tuning in to see how the bidding pans out.
Who knows, I may just be the winner.
