Strange Things Sold on EBay Vol. 1


Home for sale includes wife
PALM BEACH GARDENS, Fla. — A struggling single parent and real estate agent is trying to sell her house and find a husband. She’s auctioning off both her home and herself in a package deal on eBay and Craigslist.

Single parent Dee Traboscia has been divorced for eight years. She had hoped to be remarried by now, so she is turning to the Internet for help.

In the ad, Traboscia writes:

“If you want to live the never ending dream and experience the real love, life and the romance you have always felt was a fairytale then this is the vibrant outstanding woman of your dreams! To sweep this European Loving Lady off her feet send in your application right now.”

She goes on to say that her four-bedroom, 2,000-square-foot home, which will be included in the deal, has “neutral colors, Berber carpet, and upgraded tile.”

Her eBay auction ends July 2 and asks for a starting bid of 99 cents with a shipping cost of $500,000. The auction has not yet received any bids.

Traboscia says she has already been contacted by one man in Italy, who is arranging a trip to South Florida to visit her.

Half-eaten apple to fatten up fan’s wallet

A half-eaten apple tossed on the ground by golfer Tiger Woods will make someone very rich.

The apple was scooped up by a fan on the fairway of the 12th hole at the U.S. Open after Woods hit a tee shot. It went up for auction on eBay and got a winning bid of $36,000.

The fan who bent down to pick up the apple core said the money will go to his daughter’s college fund.
