Ever wanted to sell furniture, art, or accessories on eBay but weren’t sure how to navigate it? Yes, there are drop-off businesses around town that can help, but a new one deals solely with luxury goods. Luxe Life Auctions is the brainchild of former Baker Furniture marketing exec Lisa Zyhylij-Ackerman and her partners. If your item is worth at least $50, you can either drop it off at Luxe Life’s River North office or have it picked up. Ackerman and crew will evaluate it, determine the best price, photograph it, write a description, post it, and take care of payment and shipping. You pay 35% of the first $1,000 sold (28% for more than $1,000). Luxe Life is also a great source for collectors; in addition to the eBay store, the company has a shop on Ruby Lane, an online collective of antiques dealers. Recent deals include a Christian Dior limited-edition Casablanca china set that went for
$1,000 and Baccarat candlesticks (new in box) that sold for $180.
