First Time Visiting? Start Here!


Link is fixed now.  Sorry I’m such a numbscull

I can imagine the first person who realized that chocolate and peanut butter went together.  Two awesome things, and putting them together.  Genius.  Why did it take so long?

That is how I felt when I discovered Tophatter– it’s like ebay and Etsy got married and had a kick ass baby.

Tophatter holds “auctions” on homemade items made by sellers (and other non-homemade items), and participating people (like me or you) can bid on the items.  Each bid increases the selling price of the item until the final bid is accepted and the item is sold.  It’s pretty exciting, and there were a few times I wanted to choke out some of the little animated people who outbid me on items.

If you use ebay to sell items that are laying around your house, you might want to consider the live auction function of Tophatter, because your items are sold very quickly.  They have tons of different auctions – gourmet food, supplies, weekend bazaar, vintage estate sale, etc.  A little something for everyone.

And if you want to get a little something for you, sign up now and you’ll get a $5 credit to spend on any item that you’re the winning bidder!  Be careful though, you might find the site a little addictive!

Note: this is a sponsored post by Tophatter.  I was approached to be a Tophatter affiliate, and liked the site so much that I agreed to join!

Yo yo, head’s up, this post might contain affiliate links which help to support my site. And my canning, seed buying, and aggressive saving habits.

  1. wow what a great idea! Thanks for sharing!

  2. Hey there!

    Your links to the Tophatter website are broken.

    Just thought I’d let you know 🙂


  3. @Dee…you beat me to it. I was just coming on here to say the same thing:D

    Thanks for sharing Sarah…I hadn’t heard of this before!

  4. I get frustrated by the little conversations going on I can’t read fast enough and concentrate on the auction

  5. I joined, but not before clicking on the link froze my computer so that I had to force my computer off. Then, the computer would not close. I did ctrl, alt, del four or five times. Then, the computer would not close but tophatter did work at last. I clicked on the last link in your post. I knew you would not deliberately give us something to screw up computers, but I was still sweating! Thanks. I am too tired to finish anything except registering/joining tonight.

    • So sorry about that! It doesn’t stall my computer and I’ve tried it on a PC and a Mac. I wonder if it is your internet settings?

      Either way don’t worry, I’d never set you guys up for computer meltdown! ;-D

  6. @ Sweet Peas

    Haha Yeah, I clicked all the links and was like, I don’t think Sarah knows it doesn’t work 🙂
