Friday Find – eBay items of interest – Brass Thing – Who knows??

Ideally you should know what it is your selling when listing on eBay but sometimes its too hard to find out.

This weeks listing is an auction so you need to be quick to see the full details (we have copied the description wording below)

Heres the link 

weirdthing brass 2


It appears to be a small 3 piece brass shell that the innards unscrew from.

One thing I’ve found over the years is that if you put something on eBay buyers will eventually tell you what it is so I wonder if thats happened here. Top tip there is to use buy it now so you can then go back and alter the listing once you know what it is!

eBay Friday Find 27.06.14 – Ghostbusters Car

Spotted this and it was way too cool to not share with you all!

$_12 (1)







Its a Ghostbusters Cadillac ambulance which comes complete with its own 10m tall Stay Puffed marshmallow man!

The asking price of £175,000 (or offers) may be a bit rich for most but can you think of a cooler car?

Take a look at the eBay listing here whilst its still live

On the down side I wish the seller had taken some of our eBay training or consultancy – the description is way too short and doesn’t have very much detail in it but hey just look at them images!

If you spot anything cool on eBay let us know and we might feature it in the Friday finds!

eBay Friday Find 01.03.13 – Birmingham Football Contracts

birmingham contract

Bit of a strange on this – You can buy some of the original contracts between Birmingham City football Club and their players.

The story goes they were thrown into a skip and various people helped themselves to them

They have now surfaced on eBay and you can choose from a selection.

One seller has a few of these at the moment click here to have a look

More on the story can be found here




I’m right into my Vinyl records at the minute and this is a fantastic original portable record player.

Most of these I’ve come across have been recovered but this is totally original and it makes me want it.

It for sale via one of those old auction things on (I saw a recent article saying only 10% of eBays income comes from auctions!)

If you fancy it you will have to bid against me and you will have to be quick as its ending on 22.02.13 at 19:27

Friday Find 16.11.12 – eBay items of interest – VW Beetle Pickup

Wow – look at this. VW never made this pickup but you would be hard pressed to tell.

It just looks soooo right, doesn’t it?

It’s up for auction at what I think is a very low starting price of £6600.

Do you think if I’m really good I might get it from Santa?

Heres the full listing – be quick it ends 7.15 GMT on the 18th November 2012
