eBay Joins The Online Sample Sale Craze

My inbox is inundated with sample sales — from Gilt Groupe, Editor’s Closet, The Clothing Line, and Daily Candy’s updates. But now there’s one more to add to the list of tempting sales. eBay must feel left out, because they just launched their very own online shopping section. Their Fashion Vault opened with goodies from…

Shauna Sand Is Going To Sell Her Stuff On eBay

I don’t know what’s gotten into me lately, but I seem to have developed some kind of strange, vague obsession with Shauna Sand. There is something about a woman who walks around 24/7 in Lucite stripper shoes, who has turned herself into a kind of living Barbie, who may very well have produced her

Run, Do Not Walk, To Norma Kamali’s eBay Store

This morning we trekked through the rain to the Apple store in downtown NYC where we were treated to quite the unusual fashion show. In the spirit of “the democratization of fashion,” instead of hustling past bodyguards and navigating seat assignments there was no insane crowd as usual — even though I had an invite,…

He’s in talks to design an eight-piece collection for eBay. The prices will range from $75 to $350, which means we common folk could…

Pill Popping To Get Pretty

Everyone knows that prescription pills are available to anyone looking for them, if you know how to search online. Not that it’s a legal means—but abusing prescription painkillers isn’t all that lawful to begin with. A year or two ago, we all heard about people buying the no-joke acne medicine, Accutane, online—without a prescription or…

True Story: Someone Actually Sold These On eBay

Yes, these filthy flip-flops were for sale on eBay and even managed to fetch $7.99. No, we’re not sure who icks us out more: the person who sold the sandals or the one who bought them. Either way, it just feels wrong. But what’s really worse? The fact that these are possibly not the grossest…

Get Hot Goods (In More Than One Way) For Cheap!

Screw eBay, this morning on the “The Today Show” we learned of an auction site way better (and cheaper) than Meg Whitman’s site. Retired Detective Tom Lane came up with a website to sell off all of the stolen goods police stations seize, calling it PropertyRoom.com. Profits are split with the individual precincts that hand…

Some Things Shouldn’t Be DIY — Like Botox!

Yes! I’ve been waiting for this! Botox sounds like something I could totally do myself, and this DIY Botox kit on eBay comes with a map that shows you where to inject.

Just mix the “Botox powder” with the saline solution, and for $95 I can poke needles into my skin in the comfort…

5 Ways To Seek Digital Revenge On An Ex

When a breakup goes bad (when don’t they?), it’s natural to feel angry. There are the obvious ways to express that emotion–egging his car, throwing his belongings out a window, changing your locks. Or, you could take a more subtle and modern approach through technology. Sure, the following tactics might not be entirely legal, but…

The Australian man who said he was going to auction off everything in his life, including a few friends, after a bad breakup opened up bids on eBay yesterday. The reserve price was $500,000, but bidding has gone as high as $2.2 million. This guy will probably make a huge profit on his possessions, and…

Life For Sale

Women can be a little crazy after a breakup — hello, Heather Mills! But men have the ability to go equally nuts. An Australia man is auctioning off his life on eBay — house, car, job, clothes, and friends — because he wants to start over. He says that his ex-wife heard about his idea:…

Breakup Via Wikipedia and Ebay

It took a few years, but manly ingenuity has finally found a worse way to break up with someone than on a post-it note. Wikipedia creator Jimmy Wales dumped his girlfriend, Fox News commentator Rachel Marsden, through a post on his own website. The recently divorced website mogul took notice of the cute Canadian conservative…

Goodie of the Day: Mary Carey’s Fun Bags

Porn star, Presidential candidate, and Celebrity Rehab star Mary Carey is auctioning off her old breast implants on eBay calling them “The best stocking stuffer of all time!” Clearly she’s never seen the Christmas beer coozey our grandma knitted for us in 1995. In any case, this for sale silicone isn’t just for fun and…
