How about a haunted WWII army helmet? But before you laugh this one off, you need to read between the lines in the auction. It's too funny! Kids, get mom's permission before viewing this unique eBay auction:

All you spiritographers out there need to start selling your pics on Ebay. This guy has one for sale with an opening bid of $10,000 . . . or you can "Buy It Now" for a cool $25,000.

Make money in your spare time running a sideshow ;) Hey, spooksareus, it's also located in your hometown :blush:

I think that's kind of cool. I've never thought about running a side show but it is easy to do, apparently. I think it could be fun too.

Perhaps you've found your calling, Petunia :ghost: The seller sure makes it sound attractive (and profitable!)

How about a Voodoo Hand for your next exhibition?:

Or perhaps a monkey's paw?:

Just when I thought I'd seen it all . . . someone is now auctioning a "a clan of red fairies."

Amazing Real Mummy Head!!! ...Or is it a sideshow gaff?

http://cgi.ebay.com/...1QQcmdZViewItem


Get out! This by far is the oddest thing yet but um...I always have read that it was just his skull removed from the grave...I love the note "THIS HEAD IS A LIMITED EDITION!!!!" :lol:

Or perhaps a monkey's paw?:

You missed the fine print at the end of the auction, Willow :)

OK, ok... It's not a real mummified head. It's a sideshow
gaff and if it fooled you it will fool everyone else!

So, what is the story of the head and how can you make
lots of easy money with it?.... Simple! Read on.

It's what sideshow folks call a "gaff"--or as I like to call it, a fake. It's designed to lure the rubes into your sideshow and happily leave--shaking their heads and minus some of their disposable income :weeee:

Here's another eBay sideshow gaff auction--a frierson fossilized faery:

Or how about a Victorian Fossilized Mermaid?:

Doh, blonde moment ;) But in my defense that was a heck of a long description so it lost its interest half way down the page...least I'm not the one that paid over $200 for it ;)


Wow, that teddy bear has some story attached to it...love the warning "PLEASE DO NOT BID ON THIS ITEM IF YOU ARE AFRAID OF STUFFED ANIMALS ATTACKING YOU WHILE YOU SLEEP OR YOU DON'T LIKE THE WAY STUFFED TOYS STARE AT YOU WITH THEIR FAKE EYES."

Well, if dolls don't spook you out, this probably will. It's a Victorian chastity belt supposedly found in an unmarked grave that was opened in England . . . yea, right :whoohoo:
