The Frisky’s Top 12 eBay Finds Of The Week

From designer collaborations sold out at retail to collectible posters honoring rock legends, these are the dozen items we’re longing for on eBay this week. 1. Thomas Wylde Silk Caftan: While maxi dresses are all the rage this season, we think this more grown-up take—a Thomas Wylde floor-grazing caftan—is the perfect sartorial solution for day or evening this summer. (eBay search keywords: Thomas Wylde caftan)

2. Alexander Wang/Linda Farrow Sunglasses: Linda Farrow started designing exquisite sunglasses in the ’70s and her line still powers on. Alexander Wang is one of her most recent collaborations and we’re in awe of this vintage-inspired pair that quickly sold out at retail. Pricey, but a deal since Farrow’s designs typically fetch five to six hundred dollars per pair. (eBay search keywords: Alexander Wang Linda Farrow)

3. Pamela Love Pendant: British fashion retailer Topshop hosted a pop-up shop inside their New York flagship in May, complete with a hidden entrance. One of the boutique/artist collaborations featured in the store was with hard-edged jewelry designer Pamela Love, who we profiled earlier this year. (eBay search keywords: Pamela Love)

4. Rare Framed Ruddy Dagger Butterfly: Design book publisher Taschen just released a stunning reproduction of Albertus Seba’s Cabinet of Natural Curiosities. The images are taken from rare hand-colored originals that Seba had commissioned in 1731 to document the exotic plants and animals he had collected across the globe for decades. We’re inspired to begin our own “cabinet,” beginning with this gorgeous rare butterfly. (eBay search keywords: framed butterfly)

5. Jonathan Adler Cat Bookends: Home decor designer Adler recently made headlines with his latest needlepoint pillow that reads, “Nothing tastes as good as skinny feels.” Love or hate the now-infamous Kate Moss quote, we always get a kick out of Adler, and these ceramic bookends are further proof. (eBay search keywords: Jonathan Adler)

6. The Paper Garden Book: At the age of 73, artist Mary Delany invented a new form of floral art—botanically precise “paper mosaics” depicting flowers from paper cut-outs with watercolor detailing, set against stark black backgrounds. Some of her work will be on display at Gilding the Lily, an exhibit at Fairfax House in Britain, ongoing through July. If you can’t make it across the pond, we recommend The Paper Garden, which tells her fascinating story along with images of her work. (eBay search keywords: The Paper Garden Mary Delany)

7. Wishbone Chair: Modern furniture retailer Design Within Reach has updated Danish designer Hans Wegner’s Wishbone Chair, making it available in a variety of colorful lacquers. In the spirit of this month’s DIY Conference in Brooklyn, NY, you can purchase a natural colored version and do-it-yourself, saving hundreds of dollars. (eBay search keywords: Wishbone chair)

8. Alexander McQueen Bracelet: With the royal wedding and the exhibit at the Met, McQueen sales are surging on eBay, and we can’t get enough of the late designer’s inventive creations, including accessories. Since feathers and tufted fabrics are huge for fall, this stunning cuff will be all you need to indulge the trend. (eBay search keywords: Alexander McQueen)

9. Wedgewood Harlequin Teapot: Elle Décor is hailing polka dots as an emerging trend for the home. We love the delicate dot-within-a-dot motif on this teapot from trusted house Wedgewood. (eBay search keywords: Polka Dot Teapot)

10. Panton Mid-Century Table Lamp: Jennifer Aniston recently purchased superstar hairstylist Sally Hershberger’s Greenwich Village apartment in New York. We can’t help but wonder if Hershberger will be leaving behind the amazing mid-century chandeliers from Sottsass and Panton that seem custom-made for the place. Here’s a similar style designed for a table from Panton. (eBay search keywords: Panton lamp)

11. Mara Hoffman for Anthropologie Maillot: We love Mara Hoffman’s vibrant deigns, but are even more in love with the price tag on this maillot she designed for Anthropologie. At nearly $130 less than suits from her signature collection, it looks just as fantastic. (eBay search keywords: Mara Hoffman Anthropologie)

12. Bob Dylan Poster by Milton Glaser: Happy birthday to folk legend Bob Dylan, who turned 70 this week. Milton Glaser, one of the world’s graphic design masters designed this limited edition poster. (He also gave us the “I Heart NY” logo and founded New York magazine in 1968.) (eBay search keywords: Bob Dylan Milton Glaser)
