Checking off my Holiday List with Ebay


In prepping for my upcoming Holiday events I had two important items on my list: 1. Fabulous new barware for my Holiday cocktail parties and 2. A chic yet comfortable pair of booties. So today I wanted to reveal my finds from eBay.

For my Holiday cocktails, I wanted really special glasses. I have been in love with coupe glasses for a while now, but I wanted ones that were truly unique, so I headed to eBay for ones that were vintage. I stumbled across these gorgeous coupes and I immediately fell in love with the crystal cut detailing. They looked so sophisticated and elegant, just what I wanted!! I hit the “Buy Now” button {no bidding necessary!} and just like that, they were on their way to me! Then to compliment the glasses I found a Baccarat glass tray with hand engraved flowers, double score!

The pieces arrived in mint condition so I quickly got to work prepping. I whipped up a Holiday cocktail complete with cranberries and rosemary for garnish and placed the drinks on my coffee table alongside festive nutcrackers, mini Christmas trees, and sweet treats; I am thrilled to say Holiday cocktails are checked off my list!!

Then the perfect Hostess needs a fabulous look. I had been on the hunt for booties that much like my glasses were unique, but definitely needed to have an emphasis on comfort. As a Hostess I am on my feet pretty much all night, constantly running back and forth from the bar, to the dining room, to the kitchen, so a thicker heel was important to me.

I browsed eBay and found the Sam Edelman booties below, which have the prettiest sparkly embroidery making them incredibly unique {and festive for the Holidays through New Years!}. Plus they have a thick heel, making them super comfortable. I didn’t realize that eBay sold brand new pieces in popular brand names until this experience, I was so excited! Once again I clicked the “Buy Now” button and checked another item off my list!

So for those of you Hostesses with an incredibly long list of todo’s, I highly recommend checking out eBay for a fabulously unique find in pretty much any category! Good luck Hostessing!

Thank you to eBay for sponsoring this post.
