eBay Find of the Day: Thomas Paul Plates

One of the things I like about eBay -- and that not everyone realizes -- is that you can find a lot more than just used and vintage items there.

In fact, there are thousands of eBay sellers unloading brand-new, name-brand products, often at a fraction of the original retail prices. (Many live near outlet stores and make a living selling their finds on eBay; others seem to have some sort of inside track on company overstock.)

Take this melamine Matryoshka platter and matching dessert plates from designer Thomas Paul's popular Folk collection. With "Buy It Now," the platter is $15 and the plate set is $24.

(Psst -- the seller also has a bunch of Jonathan Adler stuff.)

Thanks so much on the ebay seller tip! I just bought two pillow covers and two melamine platters. Do you know of other ebay sellers with name brand great finds?

Hi beachgrl,

There are too many to list -- literally hundreds, each specializing in different labels.

Just search by the name of the brands you're looking for, and you'll start seeing certain sellers popping up over and over again.

You can also search eBay Stores:
