eBay wants you to know that Target isn't the only one doing cool stuff for the holiday season. For starters, they, too, are working with multiple designers on a seasonal collection (called the eBay Holiday Collective), and they've wrangled some big names: Billy Reid, Chris Benz, Fallon, Jonathan Adler, Ruffian, Steven Alan, and Tibi will all be making stuff.
The stuff that will be available is will range from men’s and women’s apparel to jewelry to travel and electronics accessories and home decor. Judging from the $50 to $100 pricepoint, it's probably going to be more gifty than Target's collection (which tops out at $500 and, at that price, will focus more on the kinds of gifts you're likely to give yourself).
Also, eBay's collection will be shoppable as of November 12, which is more than three weeks before the Target/Neiman Marcus extravaganza launches, and, bonus: Free shipping anywhere is part of the deal.
All of which is a decent set of reasons to hit eBay to shop things other than scavenged merch from the Target collection.
