An online boutique for stylish and sustainable interior design
Tastes change, and so do addresses and living room dimensions. To find a new home for your lovely but too-large sofa--or to pick up a hand-painted burlap pillow to decorate your new one--try Bethie B, a Chicago-based website that also serves New York, Austin, San Francisco, Los Angeles and Seattle. Though focused on the Chicago market, the site allows locals in the other cities to upload and list items to sell. Buyers then email the sellers directly to arrange pick-up or shipping.
The online boutique deals in secondhand furniture; it’s a curated, Craigslist-esque buying and selling experience focused on home accessories and art. Chicagoan Meg Goldberg named the business after her mother, an interior designer with a passion for repurposed and recycled goods.
Bethie B’s merchandise follows suit, with current items including a Restoration Hardware jute rug ($75), a set of hand-painted chairs upholstered in silky pink roses ($129 each) and a chic vintage gray headboard ($350). The burlap pillows ($45) are new and can be customized.
If you’re in the market to sell, upload a description and photos of your items. Once they’re approved, Bethie B will advertise the wares for 60 days, and the $10 listing fee is currently being waived for new customers.
