"I'd like to buy this as a present. If I win the auction is there any way you could deliver it to my ex for me?"
Eventually, the mirror sold for £100, or a little over $150. So, good on them. Well-played.
As a result, I plan to list everything I sell in the future as potentially haunted.
"But this isn't just any Bell Biv DeVoe CD. It's a *haunted* Bell Biv DeVoe CD."
In the end, it doesn't really matter whether the mirror was evil or if their stories were even mildly believable. What matters is that somebody paid for the simple possibility. And I love that. It's important to have a few good conversation pieces sitting around the house, and nothing sounds better than explaining how you bought a haunted mirror off two random guys on eBay.
The story counts.
Which is why, if anyone's interested, I now have some leftover Super Bowl cheese dip for sale.
It comes with a free Bell Biv DeVoe CD.
