In 2008, Jacquie Denny and Brian Graves posted the first estate sale of its kind to EBTH.com. As word of the unique service began to spread, the phones started ringing…and they haven’t stopped since.
The company was born out of a passion for antiques, a desire to change the way they’re discovered, and above all, an unwavering commitment to helping individuals and families find a better way to sell all the items from a home. From that first sale in Cincinnati, Ohio a hard-earned and well-respected reputation has set EBTH apart. The level of service the company provides is unparalleled in the industry.
Today, EBTH is home to more than 100 estate and consignment sales per month, selling special pieces of every vintage and style from homes across the country. The company has grown to include experts in a variety of disciplines, with like-minded and highly skilled teams in a growing number of U.S. cities.
With every item starting at just $1, EBTH.com is a thrilling destination for bargain hunters and savvy collectors alike, inviting everyone to browse, bid—and discover something.
How It Works
1. The Call
Individuals and families contact EBTH to help them sell a home full of items that have accumulated over a lifetime. Consultations are entirely free.
2. The Prep
Our experts sort, evaluate, photograph, and describe each item that will be sold. We arrange for pickup of things that should be donated or thrown away. We literally handle everything but the house which is unique to EBTH’s offering.
3. The Sale
The sale goes live! All sales run for seven (7) days and every item starts at $1. After fast and furious bidding, the sale closes and we manage payment, pickup, and shipping for every item.
4. The Proceeds
We leave the home empty from wall-to-wall for our sellers and provide an itemized inventory and settlement check. On average, EBTH sale proceeds are 3-5 times higher than traditional alternatives (auctions, consignment shops, etc.).
