I don't know about you, but I love finding weird stuff online. One of the greatest places to find strange things is Ebay. I'm just starting to get into Etsy also, because some of the things on there, well, I don't know what you'd call them other than 'interesting'.
I don't quite understand one thing, though: Why is turbobeeker selling so many bloody haunted dolls on Ebay? If they really are haunted... wouldn't having so many in one place be dangerous? Or maybe they house them separately? I smell a rat, but s/he's got a 100% positive feedback score!
My skepticism aside, I spent a little (a little, who am I kidding?) time checking out worldwide auctions today and I found the following interesting things for your enjoyment. Item names open a new tab directly to the auction.
me make you good luck wish ! ! ! - Who doesn't want a good luck wish? Apparently no one. This one ended with 0 bids... even with the low, low price of $0.01US! Maybe it was the $14.95 shipping charge that scared off potential buyers!
Haunted Flying Carpet - Wow! A real life flying carpet that shrinks to pocket-size is amazing enough, but haunted to boot! But I have to ask how it became haunted... was it the yarn? The knitting needles? Is it haunted only when in use? Or only when it's small? I also think I need to ask the obvious question... $15.00 shipping for a coaster?
Wiccan Pagan Haunted Jewelry Recharge Pouch Change Purse Sock 4 haunted jewelry - the title of that auction is a mouthful! This item is so versatile and so trendy, I'm sure they'll get multiple bids! In fact, I think I would like one!
Triple Strength Breakup Doll - all in caps, no less. I gave you the second pic also because it clearly states that you must take a good look at the picture because it is part of the description of this complete kit. I have no idea if this is supposed to help me breakup with someone - or get over a breakup. The items in the picture aren't clear, I clicked it and tried enlarging it but no luck. Looks like a voodoo doll, some bubble bath, a little bit of weed and immunization papers. Maybe I can stab my lover in spirit then get high and try to wash away my sins? I don't see any pins though... maybe those are sold separately.
Fu Manchu Mustache Bizarre Glass Charm Pendant Necklace Silver Jewelry Weird - umm... ok. The item description actually reads: "Wear your stash in style with this stunning and creative design". No, I don't think so.
fickle affair cheat wife/husband check spray doubt a partner - I'm adding this one because the description is pretty unusual. They give you full instructions for using this product, but English is obviously not their native tongue. A small sampling:
[usage] ① You prepare the underwear of a partner doubting a flirtation. ② You reverse underwear. ③ You cover the part between the crotch of the underwear with 5-7 times of yellowish green spray well.
It goes on for quite a while... Google translate wasn't this guy's friend.
Taxidermy Bat Cuff Bracelet - Show all your friends how truly unique you are! Sport a super-fashionable dead animal on your wrist! This is a real dead bat, people.
Montauk and Atlantis, Rare Bone and Celestial Pendant, Paranormal - This has to be the longest description I have ever seen for any auctioned item! The seller tells the whole story of how they stumbled upon these 'one of a kind' pendants made from the bones of Atlanteans. I guess she didn't read her own story... this came from a room filled with bones - I guess they're not that one of a kind..
dead cockroach in a matchbox (funny pet or gift) - I love how this guy lists this as a pet. Just as I was about to throw in the towel for the day, a little saddened because I hadn't come across any dead animals or kidney stones, I find this little gem. I love his positive attitude! I do believe you'd get a punch in the mouth if you gave this as a gift, though.
Handmade Hand Painted Angel Party Clown - creepy doesn't even begin to describe this hideous abomination! I have a fear of clowns, so this is just a little too much for me. Shockingly, there are no bids on this yet. You still have 2 hours to nab this little gem for yourself!
And I will leave you there, my dear readers. I'm sure I could spend all night looking through the weird and unusual on Ebay, but I'm done for now.
I'll do a post on Etsy next time... loads of weird shit people made themselves... truly inventive sometimes.
A note of thanks to the good people at Ebay: Thank you for censoring the adult stuff until you confirm my age. Since I didn't log in while I was searching and they didn't have that info, I was spared many, many traumatic images, judging by the number of times I saw this while I was looking through 'everything else'.
