Instead of just being a second-hand retail destination, the online marketplace will be offering original, limited edition gift items.
eBay is partnering with seven designers for an original ‘Holiday Collective‘ with capsule collections of limited edition gifts. The exclusive collections feature men’s and women’s apparel, jewelry, travel and electronics accessories, and home décor. Items from Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi, will be available on eBay for the 2012 holiday season,
The collection of 40+ inspired gift items will launch globally on November 12th at affordable “Buy it Now” prices from $50-$100 and will include free U.S. and international shipping. Jeff Somers, GM of Fashion at eBay, said:
By bringing together seven diverse, tremendously talented designers, we’re able to meet the needs and wants of our eclectic, global community with a curated assortment of gifts this holiday season. Our partners were chosen based on their genuine enthusiasm for eBay and because each brings originality and a distinct point of view, and embodies the entrepreneurial spirit of our marketplace.
