Just when I thought I had seen it all from EBay, I found this story on Listverse and it proved me wrong!
The Ghost Cane
Would you pay $65,000 for a metal walking cane? Especially a haunted one? The ‘Ghost Cane’ was put on eBay by Mary Anderson, a woman from Indiana who hoped the sale would ease the fears of her 6-year-old son who had come to believe that his grandfather’s ghost roamed the family home. The cane reached 132 bids on eBay and was only accepted on the online bidding site, which usually rejects ‘intangible items such as spirits or souls’ because Miss Anderson made it clear she was only selling the cane so that her son would no longer freak out.
However, she also asked the winning bidder to write a letter to her son telling him that the cane and the ghost were doing just fine. The ‘Ghost Cane’s’ new home is the Golden Palace casino in Antigua where it will take place of pride alongside a grilled cheese sandwich. But not just any grilled cheese sandwich, this sandwich bears the face of the Virgin Mary and was bought on eBay for a cool $28,000.
I've bought a lot of different things from EBay, but nothing like this! For that I say "Thank Goodness!"
Coffee in the kitchen this morning. It's hot and muggy outside, and this time of the year that usually means rain!
