40 eBay Items That Prove One Person’s Trash Can Always Be Someone Else’s Treasure
eBay is not only the place to buy hard-to-find collectibles—but it has also turned into a place that offers infinite entertainment. Thanks to resourceful and creative people whose sole focus is to make a quick buck on an eclectic buy, eBay is now filled with weird and strange listings that could either make you go “Oh!” or “Ew.”
If you don’t believe us, we present this list that serves as solid proof of how bizarre eBay can be. We have to acknowledge the efforts of ebaybae’s Instagram account for diligently collecting the odd and uncanny for putting a smile on our faces. We tip our waffle hat to you, good user.
Now, let us take our first step into this world of wonders!
Best Steampunk Keyboard Ever?
Steampunk is a well-known subgenre of sci-fi. Or at least it’s well-known to steampunk fans. It deftly combines retro-future technology and 19th-century steam-powered machinery. The result is everything a steampunk geek would sell their kidney for. Whoever the eBay seller of this to-die-for keyboard is can effortlessly take our money and run. We are not going to chase after them.
Pink Is In
The statement “pink is the new black” is highly debatable. As proof, this all-pink accessorized car could elicit some “oohs” and “aahs” along with some “ughs,”, especially for those who are sensitive to bright colors and color-uncoordinated craziness. This is why pink be kept to a minimum.
Gucci’s $7,000 Handcuffs
Everything branded costs a tad more than generic items. A Prada paper clip fetched $185. In the same vein, their padded headband cost $500. After all, Prada is Prada, and they need your money, or their business will be nada.
Teddy Bear As Pants
Headless Model Not Included
Many would think a “brainless model” to be some kind of insult, but this eBay listing took that statement literally, and probably for a good reason, too. If you are trying to make people buy your clothes, you need to capture people’s attention. Similar to a trainwreck, we cannot imagine anyone not wanting to take a second look at this listing.
Horse Sculpture Bench, Anyone?
Albino Baby Monkey
Those three words are more than enough to capture anyone’s attention on eBay. Add in a picture of the item along with a close-up of their little feet, and we promise you’ll have enough nightmare fuel to ensure that you never sleep ever again.
Some take their work home with them because they have tons to do and too little time to do it. But very few decide to wear their work on their sleeve—literally. This eBay seller is trying to capture that niche market. Either that or they are after buyers who want very quirky bags to add to their collection.

Pretzel Alcohol Flask
Who would think that an innocent-looking pretzel could carry the elixir of life? This flask is cleverly designed to appear like a regular pretzel but is actually a container for brandy, whisky, or anything you can get your alcohol-loving hands on. Careful, though, as some people might ask for a bite of your pretzel. Better think of a wise way to turn them down without eliciting suspicion.
Cherry In The Bathroom
We think this item is the second-best on the list. Imagine going to the bathroom and seeing a red cherry. We could not think of a single reason why a cherry would be there. But someone apparently did and subsequently brought this artifact into the world.
Disguising a cleaning brush to make it look like fruit is genius. Just make sure to remind the cleaner where the brush is so she doesn’t need to spend time looking for something she might never see. Can you imagine telling them to “look for the cherry?”
If you’ve never imagined your kitty cat swimming in a martini glass, this eBay-listed item will help you do just that. It does not mean that your cat will actually get to swim in a cocktail—instead, expect your cat to be able to play in a martini-like world.
The Original Apple TV
Look no further if you’re on the lookout for a full-fledged Apple TV. This item is literally an apple television. We believe this will last longer than Steve Jobs’ Apple TV. It is a novelty item that will beat all other eBay products. Who knows, it might be worth a ton of money after a few years.
Bearded Barbie doll?
We can’t blame the seller for trying to make a quick buck out of a production mistake. It’s a free country, after all. Who knows, maybe this will become a rare collectible shortly. But for now, it’s a $49.99 product waiting for an eager sucker—or rather, a buyer.
The Halloween And Christmas Grinch
Do You Want To Buy A Snowball?
Anyone, even a three-year-old, can make snowballs at no cost. It doesn’t take any special skill to create one. However, it does take a certain kind of asset to sell a pair of snowballs for $10,000—and those assets may well be a rude synonym for “confidence.”
Rare Gummy Bear?
Small gummy bear candies were a staple when we were growing up. They have been part of our childhood. However, that doesn’t mean we want to pay thousands for one. This eBay seller actually thinks someone would.

$599 For A Moschino Backpack?
Fuzzy Pink Trousers
Toothbrush And Spoon
Sphynx Cat Toy Doll
If you are into nightmarish items that will keep you up at night, this sphynx toy doll is perfect for you. This eBay listing belongs in the albino monkey doll category previously seen in this list. It is 18 inches in length and is made of soft silicone. It also comes with clothes.
U.S. Map Glasses
1960s Face Drawers
Authentic-looking fried rice
Frying and tossing fried rice in a wok takes some deft cooking skill. If you don’t have the talent but have 1,000 dollars to buy this eBay item, you can make anyone believe you are a fried rice cooking expert—for precisely one second.
