76 Bizarre eBay Sales and Auctions

— September 25, 2008 — Marketing
We're all familiar with bidding for items on eBay. There have even been some mundane things sold on the site creating amazing buzz and reaching unfathomable sums. Many celebrity articles, such as Fergie's Hummer, have also gone to new homes with the click of a mouse.

However, other extreme sales have happened in this online marketplace; some for charity, some for profit. There was a female college student who recently auctioned her virginity; men have also put their wives up for sale, and an internship at Harper's Bazaar also went to the highest bidder.

So if you're looking for a bargain or the hottest piece of modern art, don't miss the offers found here.
