Why did I not think of this? Two unwanted Brussels sprouts were sold on eBay with a price of £215. I love sprouts, but everyone has their price and could happily say goodbye to their greens for over £100 a pop.
The sprouts were sold from Burnley in Lancashire and attracted an impressive 63 bids, and at one point, 260 people were watching!
Save sprouts; a new home is better than a bin!
Implications - With the economic recession slowly recovering, many consumers are willing to spend their money on seemingly insignificant materials. Companies would be wise to take risks in product design and make commodities that go against the mainstream to appeal to the many individuals wanting odd, yet rare products.
