Local interior designer Cinnie May has sold her Owings Mills house and is moving to New York. While the news leaves her friends bereft, it’s great news for bargain hunters.
Before she heads to the Big Apple, Cinnie, who has had a 30-year career in interior design, is selling nearly every item in her Golf Course Road home — from furnishings to fur coats — at online estate sale website Everything But the House.
The array of items — Jordan Brown outdoor furniture, a Range Rover, an Hermes watch, and more — runs the gamut, but the consistently high quality and low price (bids started at $1 on most items) of virtually every article makes the sale unique.
If you’re interested in bidding on anything, you better act quickly. The Mays’ sale ends in four days, on June 12 at 8 p.m. EDT.
It’s no surprise that Cinnie would have amassed a first-rate collection of furnishings given her expert eye. The Owings Mills mother of two (now an empty nester) started her career in New York at Brunschwig & Fils and worked in Baltimore for ten years as the assistant to the furniture historian, antique collector, and interior designer Stiles Colwill before launching her company JBM Designs.
Everything But the House is an online estate sale website started in 2007 by Cincinnati estate auction organizer Jacquie Denny and one of her best customers, Brian Graves. The website now sells from 20 cities.
