Living in Texas, we were experiencing summer temperatures here (think mid 80s!) even as late as a week and a half ago. But things started changing a couple of weekends ago, and we were quickly ushered into full blown Fall. I’m talking morning temps in the low 40s with a nice crisp bite in the air. Luckily, my front porch and I were ready! I got my front porch together when it was still warm outside, and Narci quickly hopped over and grabbed some pics before all the rain started.
I’m excited to be partnering up with eBay again today and sharing my front porch with everybody! Throughout this year I’ve worked with eBay on several occasions, so I think you know by now that it’s a treasure trove of all sorts of amazing finds, including awesome items for your home (and you can easily shop by category)!
WELCOME TO MY FRONT PORCH, Y’ALL!
I absolutely love having a home that is welcoming to others, and that starts with the front porch. We have a nice sized front porch with this house (which is a first for us), so it can be a bit overwhelming to decorate. Luckily, eBay came to the rescue and made it so easy. Whether your front porch is big or small, I’m going to show you how turning to eBay can help you get your front porch all ready for Fall as well!
My first tip for a great fall porch? Mums. Lots and lots of mums in various colors. And a smattering of pumpkins.
Mums and pumpkins will have your porch feeling like Fall in no time.
This year I decided to house my mums in these adorable olive buckets. And you can find a ton of them in various shapes and sizes on eBay.
I just love them!
I’ve shared this with you before, but do you know that 81% of the items offered on eBay are new and almost all of the items have the “But It Now” capability?!? And 69% of items ship for free!
I already had the Adirondack chairs (find a ton of options on eBay HERE), but I knew I wanted to layer pillows on them to add color and texture to the outdoor space.
I placed a large ticking stripe fabric pillow (love the tie detailing) on the back, and then layered smaller pillows up front. Click HERE for a huge selection of fall outdoor pillows. Click HERE for some similar pillows in a ticking stripe.
And when I found a Kantha throw, I knew it would be perfect draped on the back of one of the chairs to be used on chilly mornings. I fell in love with the vibrant colors and mixtures of patterns in these throws.
And I was so happy to find such a great selection of Kantha throws on eBay! Just click on what you are interested in:
And a great Fall wreath is an absolute necessity! A wreath alone can totally change the look of your porch.
In fact, if you are only going to do one thing to your porch, put your money towards a wreath that you love. A wreath will definitely make the most impact and get you the most bang for your buck. I loved the pine cones and pomegranates on the one I snagged (that is no longer available), but eBay has lots of great Fall wreath options! I think this one is stunning, but I know it will go fast!
If you like that pumpkin next to the Harvest sign, you can find some metal pumpkins HERE.
In addition to the olive buckets, I also used sap buckets for some of the mums! That’s a red tin sap bucket in the planter, and a painted wooden sap bucket on the floor. You can find a selection of tin sap buckets HERE and a selection of wooden sap buckets HERE. Some wooden buckets are quite expensive, but if you are patient you can find a great deal!
Here’s a similar lit jack o lantern if you like the idea of having one that stands the test of time.
I think all of the different textures and layers make the porch interesting, cozy, and ready for Fall! I love the colorful layered look.
Don’t you want to just sit a spell and sip on a hot cider with a friend? Come on over!

This is my 6th eBay post this year, so it’s my hope that you are starting to become familiar with the retailer and all they have to offer!
Click HERE for my 1st post where I highlighted NEW WITH TAG workout gear. This post introduced me to the new eBay! I realized that I could buy items NEW WITH TAGS, that items were easily searchable, and that I could get amazing deals!
Click HERE for my 2nd post where I highlighted Dyson vacuums (and took a walk down memory lane with the pups). This post changed the vacuum game in my house.
Click HERE for my 3rd post where I highlighted our new air fryer. FYI, I love this thing so much. I use it at least 3x every single week.
Click HERE for my 5th post where I highlighted fall fashion with eBay!
A huge THANK YOU to eBay for sponsoring this post and for helping me get my porch all decked out for Fall!
Before you go, I have some other items I’ve found that I thought you would want to know about. I found some GORGEOUS pre-lit grapevine pumpkins, Thanksgiving banners, and I’m loving this 8″ inflatable pumpkin family for the front yard.
And if you too have been hit with cold weather recently, check out the North Face offering that are on eBay HERE! I also highly encourage you to go check out the eBay DEAL OF THE DAY! You never know what they might be featuring!
