Do you love to shop from the comfort of your own home?  Do you love getting amazing deals on name brand items, supplies, jewelry and more?  Well then this post is for YOU.  I’d like to introduce you to a fabulous auction site called Tophatter.

Here’s how it works:

  • Head on over to Tophatter and sign up for an account.  I promise, it’s easy peasy and takes like 30 seconds.
  • Next you will land on this dashboard page.  It shows you all the current auctions going on at that moment and the ones coming up!


  • Once in the dashboard page you can check out any of the auctions.  I selected the first one “Supplies Auction”  Below is what the auction looks like:

  • Take note below.  The girl on the left with the circle under her feet is ME (or will be YOU when you are doing this!)  The guy up top is the Auctioneer…sometimes it’s a cute lady{auctionette?!?}  The picture in the upper right is the item that is being currently bid on, the current bid and the button that you press if YOU want to make a bid.  The bottom right is a list of the items coming up on the option block next!

  • Feel free to enter an auction just to look around and see what’s coming up!  You can click on any of the items to get a more detailed description.   If you want to bid on the current item, you just click the button under “Current High Bid” in the top right circle above and then in the photo with all the people…you get to wear the Top Hat!  Kind of cute!
  • If you win an item you are taken directly to a PayPal screen where you log in and pay the seller directly.  It was super easy and super fast!  You have to pay your invoice before you can bid again on another item.
  • costs for shipping the item are also listed in the description so you know right up front what you are going to have to pay!

I scored myself a fold up photo shoot kit to take great pictures of my projects because I have crappy house light!  It shipped the day after I won the auction and I have been a stalker on the tracking link page :)

Here are just a few of the items that you could be bidding on and that could be joining you at your house!

Here are a few words from Tophatter:

Have you discovered the addictive new auction site called Tophatter, where buyers bid for sellers’ unique goods in fast-paced virtual auction rooms? From crafts and DIY projects, to antiques, jewelry, home décor and much more, there’s no limit to what you can discover on Tophatter.

With live auctions every day, sellers get to showcase their wares from around the world to a community of thousands of buyers, and answer questions via chat as the clock ticks down. Each lot sells in an average of two minutes, so buyers must bid quickly!

Tophatter’s auctions become interactive live events where buyers and sellers can hang out, chat, and win. Led by the esteemed Sir Wendell Wattington and his animated family, Tophatter auctions keep the fun rolling in.

This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Tophatter. The opinions and text are all mine.


If I didn’t entice you already to get bidding, I have a special offer for you:  EACH of YOU will receive a $10 credit when you sign up for Tophatter and spend $11 on an auction.   Just sign up hereand you will be given the credit!    How awesome is that?!  Now get bidding!
