Slate blue DWR sofa: There’s a reserve, but you can count on paying a fraction of the original price. This sofa sat in a model apartment and was barely used, says the first-time seller.
Wire locker-room baskets: While PB Teen and the Container Store offer something similar, we think older gym baskets have more character — particularly those with perforated-metal ends. Use them on open shelves in an office or laundry room.
Lowercase letter ‘a’: Searching “sign letter” on eBay usually brings up about a hundred items in a wide variety of font styles. We often search “sign letter” and “O” because well-preserved metal O’s can be converted to great-looking mirrors.
Stokke changing table: We love the oval Sleepi crib, which converts to a toddler bed. This ingenious design converts to a work table or a bookshelf. If you’re in the market for baby gear, several eBay sellers are offering the Stokke Kinderzeat, pictured this month in Domino.
