he just wanted to see if people really did buy anything lol!

he had a lot of interest, one person wanted to know the length of them as she was doing a biology degree or something and needed some for an experiment. he thought she may want to clon him

a nicotine stained glass paperweight with a picture of st leonards on sea (I think) in the base. went for over a tenner!

some grotty china tea set - not complete, went for around the tenner mark too, had a bidding war in the last minute and went to an antiques dealer.

but the best and weirdest was an incomplete pack of playing cards (that weren't in perfect condition) in a very damaged leather case - they were the first playing cards that used countries and odd things rather than what you see now. Went for an astounding £600! (we did do a bit of research and got an appraisal but the starting bid was low to reflect the damage)

all items were left by my dh's grandmother and ended up at our house once the other family members had had their bits. I think they thought they'd left us the rubbish!

A couple of years ago when I first discovered ebay I scrolled down to weird items for sale and out of curiousity I had a look.

Someone was selling their "last joint"

The blurb said the person was giving up the stuff and had been saving this one to share with her boyfriend. He, however had just dumped her and she couldn't face smoking it alone.
