Hunters and Gatherers

Summer Sales

When you see a tag sale sign by the side of the road, do you pull over in hopes to find treasure among the trash?  To be honest, we’re not tag sale people per se but you could talk us into shopping on Hunters Alley, the newest addition to the One Kings Lane family billed as a curated, peer-to-peer marketplace.

A combination of 1stdibs, eBay, craigslist and Etsy, Hunters Alley was created by OKL founder Alison Pincus as a platform for vetted tastemakers to sell “almost new and lovingly used” home decor.  All you need to do is set up an account to sell your treasures and with their concierge service, they’ll do the rest.  And for buyers, gone are the days of dumpster diving – this site takes hunting and gathering to a whole new level!

This online find is still in beta mode so alas, we couldn’t shop for our new living room but we did enjoy reading the seller profiles and getting a glimpse of their own chic homes.  Rumor has it Hunters Alley will go live by the end of the month, just in time for us to sell the last remaining pieces of our former, more traditional decor.  French pleat curtains, anyone?  How about a collection of crystal decanters?

Are you a hunter and gatherer?  If so, what are your favorite online sources for vintage home decor?

P.S.  Another great site we’ve just discovered is Joy & Revelry where we just picked up these mid-century bookends!

    Genius! I don’t usually have much luck when treasure hunting (mostly because I am impatient). I love the idea of being able to browse at my leisure. I wonder if it is something that will make its way to Aus?

    I hadn’t heard about this – what a great idea – I’m passing this along to my sister, who is an inveterate collector with an incredible eye and treasure trove of everything from furniture to accessories and fashion items! Happy Weekend!

    I do go to flea markets and shop on-line:) It’s always hit and miss. This is a great idea and I’ll be checking it out!

    I’ve been known to stop at an estate sale, if it looks like it will have some estate like treasures. Otherwise, I’m happy strolling the aisles of Brimfield – like markets. I was spoiled, shopping at the cours salaya in Nice every Monday last year. I love the hunt and prefer this to online, in general. Can’t wait for this new site, however. Fun blog you have.
