I’ve shopped eBay for as long as I can remember. I have found so many wonderful vintage pieces of art, china, and silver on the site but they also sell a myriad of new items for every room in your home. Did you know 81% of the items on eBay are new and available with […]

It’s no surprise that interior designer Ken Fulk‘s book was titled Mr. Ken Fulk’s Magical World because he really is a magician.
