eBay Saturday: A Bit of Scholastic History in Greenwich

Do you know the schools of Greenwich?


Calling all Greenwich historians and school buffs.

As you know, eBay Saturday features unusual items on the ubiquitous auction website of items related to Greenwich. This one caught our eye.

"The Ely School for Girls designed by Carrere & Hastings c. 1907 in Greenwich. The preparatory school moved from New York City to Greenwich the year the building was completed. The school burned down in 1926."

This ad doesn't give a location for the school. So who can enlighten us as to where this institution of learning was located? Let us know in the comments section. The first person to provide the correct answer will win a cool Patch t-shirt. (Just remember to become a Patch account holder to be eligible to register your comment and answer.)

Meanwhile if you're looking to expand your collection of Greenwich-oriented ephemera, the seller of this 1919 ad is taking bids for 23 days, or, if you're really hot to buy it now, it'll cost $12.98 (shipping is free).

Happy shopping!

As far as buying/saving on eBay goes: If you see an item that you want listed in auction format, send the seller a message asking if they will accept $x to end the auction early and sell the item to you. If that doesn’t work, use a sniping service such as Bidball.com to bid for you. It’ll bid in the last few seconds, helping to save $ and avoid shill bidding. If there is a particular item that you want that is relatively rare on eBay or goes fast when one is listed, use ebuyersedge.com to set up a saved eBay search for it. You’d get an e-mail whenever a match is listed. You can use the price, category, exclude word, etc. filters to narrow down the results that you get in the e-mails. Excellent for “Buy It Now”s priced right. If the item that you’re looking for is difficult to spell, try a misspelling search site like Typojoe.com to find some deals with items that have main keywords misspelled in the title. Other interested buyers may never see them.
