Hilco Streambank Announces Stalking Horse Bidder for Vanity.com

In June, Hilco Streambank announced that it was selling Vanity.com and other assets related to the Vanity Shop’s Chapter 11 bankruptcy filing. Bids were due in July, but it doesn’t look like all of the business assets were sold.

Yesterday afternoon, I received an email from Hilco Streambank announcing the company has a $100,000 stalking horse bid for several of Vanity Shop’s assets, including Vanity.com, Vanity.net, and the Vanity.com trademark. The minimum overbid on this is $115,000. Should a higher bid fail to materialize, the stalking horse bidder will be able to purchase the domain name. If there are competing bids, an auction will be held on October 25. Details about the auction (if necessary) will be provided to any bidders who place bids higher than the stalking horse bid.

The company is also seeking a minimum bid of $75,000 for other assets related to the Vanity Shop business. This separate lot also includes the eVanity.com and VanityShops.com domain names.

According to the email I received,Interested parties must submit competing bids on or before Monday, October 23, 2017 @ 5:00PM CST.” People who may be interested in placing a bid or asking a question should get in touch with Hilco Streambank. The email also mentioned that bids are subject to approval by the bankruptcy court.

Vanity.com is a great domain name with many possible uses.
