The Eclectic Sid & Ann Mashburn Go Shopping On eBay
For two decades, Sid Mashburn influenced design at some of the country’s most successful American labels, including J Crew, Ralph Lauren, Tommy Hilfiger and Lands’ End. In 2007, he left New York to start an eponymous boutique in Atlanta. “I had roots in the South,” says Mashburn, a Mississippi native, “and Atlanta felt very much like I was coming home.” Since then, the rigorously edited one-stop-shop and haberdashery has become a mecca for the East Coast’s best dressed gents. (Mashburn himself was named one of the most stylish men in America by GQ last year, alongside Justin Timberlake, hotelier Andre Balazs and actor Jason Schwartzman.) This month, Mashburn’s wife, Ann, a former Glamour editor and assistant to Vogue legend Polly Mellen, opens the women’s counterpart Ann Mashburn in the same Atlanta shopping complex. The couple, who have five daughters, recently sat down with Amy Flurry, a frequent contributor to The Inside Source, eBay’s online style magazine, to share their eBay shopping list. Here’s a look at what they’re clicking on now:
Blind Willie McTell Atlanta Strut Sealed Vinyl LP (buy it now, $36.99) “I’ve found a lot of vinyl,” says Sid. “At the shop we spin records all day and listen to everything from blues to jazz to indie favs.”
Vintage Persol Ratti Sunglasses (buy it now price, $140) “My vintage Persol sunglasses were an eBay purchase, as was a vintage Pucci sarong that I will take on our vacation to Italy,” Ann says.
1972 BMW 3.0CS (buy it now price, $14,600) “I spent long hours looking for two classic sports car, an early 70s, BMW 3.0 CS and a late 70s BMW 635 CSI,” says Sid. “No purchase yet but I’m still hopeful.”
Persian Mashawani Kilm Rug (starting bid, $0.15) “We found a couple of kilm rugs for our oldest daughter’s college dorm room,” says Ann. “They’re much more homey and beautiful than some cheap new rug from Target.”
