She may have her own vintage-inspired home line, but that doesn’t mean Rachel Bilson has stopped shopping for darling décor. At the launch of the Derek Lam for eBay collection in New York Tuesday night, Bilson told PEOPLE that she’s always on the hunt for vintage treasures — and uses the online auction site as a tool. “I am an eBay shopper,” she admitted. “But I have no patience, and if you’re waiting for a bid, it’s so nerve-racking, but I think you can find amazing things.” The actress said she’s found a lot of decorative pieces on the site, including light fixtures and a weather vane. “When I say I found it, I actually lost out on it at the last second,” she explained. “But it was one of the better finds.” Bilson, decked out in the Derek Lam for eBay “Boho” halter dress, praised the designer’s mini collection, available on eBay now for $175-$295. “I think it’s so cool that he did a collaboration [with eBay] with clothes,” she said. “It’s such a great idea.” Lam, for his part, said he was thinking of summer when he created the wares. “Women always tell me they love my dresses,” he told PEOPLE. “And I love designing dresses! Everybody needs a great dress in the summer, so that was the inspiration.” Lam, who also admitted to shopping on eBay for “the best deals,” said his greatest online get was a pair of out-of-production Nike sneakers. “Someone said to just put in the registration number and you’ll find it, and I did,” he recalled. “[It was] the last pair I was able to find anywhere in my size.” Tell us: What’s your greatest eBay find?Reporting by Asher Fogle
