No problem – eBay has those.

But have you taken a moment to browse the weird and wonderful items that are being sold?

We’ve sifted through the marketplace to find some real oddities that could be purchased from sellers around our area and a bit further afield.

You definitely won’t find these in the Argos catalogue.

Rare vintage Skull & Snake pen holder



Would you buy this?

From the spooky clutches of a home in Louth, comes this rare skull and snake pen holder listed at £15.99.

Looking to give someone a fright?

This item can certainly fulfil that objective.

Plus, with Halloween on the horizon, what more could you want?!

Papier-mâché of Mikhail Gorbachev



Vintage? Or downright creepy?

Has this come from the set of Spitting Image?

This rather unusual object can be purchased from Lincoln.

Mikhail Gorbachev was the former leader of the Soviet Union before the Communist state collapsed and became the Russia we know today.

Either way – the attention to detail is magnificent.

Mikhail’s birth mark is there, the bald patch is accurate, even the glasses (removable) are included in the price of £145.

Sadly, you can’t wear the mask to fool them that you’re a former Soviet leader – but you could wow them at an after-dinner party with this.

It looks sort of like him – right?

Jar of belly button fluff



One of the worst things we’ve ever seen

The unique selling point of this item – ‘years of collection’ – is probably the reason why no one on the planet would consider buying it.

Don’t be fooled into thinking this has been collected religiously – only every now and then for the past seven years.

For those of a squeamish nature, please be careful when scrolling the pictures to this item.

Formerly a jam jar in its brighter history, the item is now being sold as an ‘amusing novelty’, an ‘art piece’, or as a ‘collector’s item’.

With the seller from Hull asking for £80.08, this must be one of the most revolting items out there on eBay.

Yoda custom head bust



Is the force strong enough to purchase this bust of yoda?

‘Strong with the force’ this Doncaster seller is.

But also ‘beware of the dark side’ with this one for a price of £34.99.

Considered a collectable item by most Star Wars fans, this unreal model display could be a perfect piece on the mantel piece – or even locked away, never to be seen again.

‘Rare’ Sour Patch Kid sweet



Has the sweet been out of its packet for long

Thanks to one Grimsby seller, this once delicious sweet would have been edible when it was taken out of the packet the first time around.

Grab an absolute bargain – or not – with bids starting at 6p though the reserve hasn’t been met and it will require 66p in postage.

A chip from McDonalds



Can you see the Nike logo in this McDonald’s chip

Finally, the return of the sensible seller.

From Pontefract in West Yorkshire, you could buy this chip which has a striking resemblance to the Nike logo for a starting bid of £2.38.

If you’re extra lucky, you could pay the buy it now price of £500.

But maybe it’s worth buying a fresh order of chips from the fast-food restaurant instead.

Scary specimen in a bottle



Yikes!

Probably the less said about this the better?

The item is currently being sold in the Leeds area for a combined price of £12.50 for postage and packaging.

Looking for any tips for Halloween?

Because this sure scares the life out of us.

Santa duck ornament



Cute or completely strange?

With Christmas starting to ebb its way into the conversation, you’d be quackers not to have this tasteful Santa duck ornament.

The Chesterfield seller is advertising the item as an ‘unusual’ feature to place on your mantelpiece this Christmas for £18.99.

If you’re wanting to do things slightly less predictable this year, this item could be for you.

Horned shrunken head



We’ve all had better days than this horned shrunken head

I think we’ve all had better looks than this in the morning.

Sold as ‘one of a kind’, this Nocturjin – a very rare creature of darkness and difficult to see at night – could mystify your taste.

Legend has it that if the Nocturjin is caught, it will grant one wish. However, a person in possession of its head will have eternal good luck.

It is said that the Nocturjin head could give good luck in small portions to any who touch it and those who kiss it will be lucky in love.

No thanks.

If you would like this item, the Worksop seller you will have to fork out £86.

Shrunken pirate Jolly Roger head



Aye, Aye, Captain

‘Aye, Aye, Captain’.

Here be captain Jolly Roger’s head – but in shrunken form.

Again, another Worksop seller with an eye for the unusual – this item is available for £65.

Maybe it’s worth taking it to sea and lowering the anchor to the bottom of the sea with this one?

So there you have it.

Some of the most interesting, bizarre and downright ridiculous items for sale on eBay.

To all those selling and buying – please keep on unearthing these items.

Thanks to all these ambitious sellers – it’s been fun.
