Seasoned vintage sellers Jacquie Denny and Brian Graves believe that there is a one-of-a-kind piece in every house. In 2008, the two combined their passion for antique items and began their company, Everything But The House (EBTH). EBTH is a full-service estate sale business and secondhand goods marketplace for authenticated items. They focus on driving awareness through web presence and maintaining client-centric services. In 2012, after their online presence expanded and exceeded clients’ expectations, Andy and Jon Nielsen and their business partner, Mike Reynolds, took notice and joined in to take the company global. EBTH sells furniture, jewelry, art, coins, cars, collectibles, and more in regions throughout the country.

Southern Home (SH): EBTH is such an intriguing concept, how did this idea come about?
(BG): Well, that’s a longer story than you might think! It was the combination of my co-founder, Jacquie Denny, and myself spending over two decades loving this business, developing our professional skills while working in both this industry and others, a passion for helping families, and a need to constantly search for ways to understand this market. We both witnessed how collecting interests were changing and how consumers were shifting from a physical to a virtual buying experience. Since we knew that the best thing we could do for our clients was to create an inclusive and approachable platform that levels the playing field, eliminates pretense, and maintains everyone’s collective best interest, we set out to create a new marketplace.
