"Would you pay $76 for a shot glass? What about$52 for an oven mitt? And \$50 for a jar of marbles?
You may shake your head and say no way, but in a recent series of eBay auctions, the consumers did just that: they shelled out considerable cash for objects that to all appearances should never have fetched more than a couple bucks.
So what made the difference? Each item came with a unique tale."

Interesting, without checking I'd bet there are already copy cat auctions up.
