eBay is still one of the best ways to find affordable, original mid-century modern pieces online.
But scoundrels and mislabeled items abound, making it difficult to seperate treasures from trash.
We do the sifting for you. This is a hand-picked showcase of the most interesting items on eBay. Updated daily.
If good design is a balance of aesthetics and utility, the craft peaked in the years between 1945–1970.
This era of modernism hit the design sweet spot: functional beauty. Finding harmony between the natural and the manmade, designers made objects that serve their purpose with organic grace.

I don’t expect to cover a lot of fashion on this site, but I thought this pattern worn last week by TV’s Anna Friel as Charlotte “Chuck” Charles warranted mention. This is a good dress and “Pushing Daisies” is a great show.
Thanks for picking up on this one! I saw that outfit and it definitely brought yet another level of likeability to that show. Feel free to check out my review at: http://kyality.blogspot.com/2007/11/maybe-trekkies-have-chance.html
Love your blog, keep up the great work!
I love the clothes she wears on this show. Recently I bought the first season of The Mod Squad and was amazed at the fashions that “Julie” wears. I was under the impression it would all be jeans and love beads, but I guess the “Counter Culture” fashions for the day were not as outlandish and I remembered. Love your blog!
What a great dress, indeed! I’ve been searching around for it a lot lately. Thanks for posting this. Any idea where it can be found online or in shops or is it the property and creation of their wardrobe staff? Any help you can lend is much appreciated.
