Hauntings On Ebay Who Knew?

I am sure you know that anything you enter in a Search Engine leads to something on Ebay.I found 3777 listings there under haunted.
I had never thought about haunting in connection with Ebay until reading an article recently on line.To sum it up,the focus wa selling "haunted jewelry"at auction there.It was one witch-the real WICCA kind-ranting about a self proclaimed witch selling jewelry described as haunted.I do not have permission to link to that article.
Obviously,it captured my attention so last evening I did an Ebay search for "haunted".There were 3777 (At least not 666) items listed.As I was looking over this array,another 65 were listed.There were books.DVDs,a few candles,some Nightmare Before Christmas items a few Halloween type things and a variety of jewelry and other items considered haunted or of having various powers.
On Etsy where my store appears, it is considered unprofessional to name another seller with whom you have a problem or to copy descriptions etc,from another's listing.I assume this to be true on Ebay as well so will call no names nor give full descriptions but some were just too much to resist.If I go down for this I am taking all who read it with me.Be aware.
There are some items ranging from $9.99 to $109 for beginning bid.
Let us take for example a jewelry box beginning at $24.85 Here are some of the interesting points mentioned about it directly copied but rearranged..If you think this is long.I cut more than this much out as repetition...

IF YOU WISH TO USE THIS POWER FOR EVIL OR ANYTHING OTHER THAN THE GOOD OF YOURSELF, YOUR FELLOW MAN OR MANKIND. EVEN THOUGH YOU MAY HAVE THE RESULT YOU WANT AND ACHIEVE ALL YOU SEEK THROUGH THIS POWER, THE KARMA AND REPRECUSSIONS WILL COME BACK ON YOU. IT IS OF MOST IMPORTANCE TO KEEP THIS IN MIND AS THE POWER IT BRINGS MUST BE TREATED WITH THE UTMOST RESPECT. TRUE RESPECT , HONOR AND UNDERSTANDING OF THE CRAFT HAS ALWAYS BEEN A WAY OF LIFE FOR REBECA, REBECA'S FAMILY AND FOR ALL THE MEMBERS OF HER COVEN.In our world, having something that was previously owned by a high priest or priestess is thought to be an honor. These items are highly coveted and valued and the one in possession of it should treat it with respect.Have you ever heard the expression "BE CAREFUL WHAT YOU WISH FOR, YOU JUST MAY GET IT" ? Well, through the powers of magick you can achieve exactly what you ask for and what your heart truly desires. There is no doubt that through this piece things will happen for you with certainty. The piece I am offering will bring you all you seek and more.
IT IS NOT MEANT TO FALL IN THE HANDS OF THE NON BELIEVER SO I ASK TO PLEASE BID WITH CAUTION AND RESPECT AND ONLY IF YOU FEEL DRAWN TO A PARTICULAR PIECE THAT I OFFER. THANK YOU!
Haunted Vintage Jewelry Box Powerfully Charged for Abundance, Wealth and Prosperity~


many of you already know me as I have had the pleasure of already having been able to share some of my Mother's collection with so many of you... For those of you who do not know me, Please let me introduce myself.... My Name is xxx and I am and have been a practcing Witch for about 37 years now. I never practice dark magick because I believe that with one's power comes responsibilty and power should never be abused but rather cherished and used for good. As a Wiccan I believe that for every action you take there is a reaction from the powerful forces of the universe and that everything you do comes back to you 3 fold,

Magick can bring you the things you desire most and can lead you to great fortune, great luck, great protection from the evil that can surround you. The power of magick can also help awaken your senses to give you the insight and intuitiveness to lead you down the proper paths of your life with much ease. When spells are cast properly you will certainly be able to experience the power the and feel the intense and forceful energies that I am talking about.
My Mother's name was Rebeca. She was a High Priestess and has guided me along with my Grandmother into having true understanding of the craft. My Grandmother passed many years ago and just in the year of 2001 High Priestess Rebeca
passed on.The items I offer are authentic powerful pieces from my Mother's Altar along with some items that were left behind by my Grandmother which have proven themselves over and over as so many have experienced. My Mother's Coven members have also given me and continue to give me items from time to time. I myself on occasion will also release a piece once I feel I have benefitted totally from it and would like to now share it's magick with another that is in need.
Rebeca's magick has touched so many peoples lives and continues to do so as her spirit continues to live on in all of her items. Rebeca promised before her passing that she would visit all of her posessions and whomever is in possession of them and continue her good works from the other side.
THIS IS A MOST POWERFUL VINTAGE JEWELRY BOX THAT HAS BEEN IMBUED WITH COUNTLESS INTENSE SPELLS BY HIGH PRIESTESS REBECA AND HER COVEN OF 13 MEMBERS. THIS BOX IS IN LIKE NEW CONDITION IN SPITE OF IT'S AGE AND THIS BOX HAS BEEN CHARGED DURING THE RITES OF THE FULL MOON CEREMONIES AND WILL GRANT PROSPERITY, LUCK AND WEALTH TO ANYONE THAT OWNS IT. THIS BOX HAS STORES INTENSE
ENERGIES AND HAS EXTRAORDINARY POWERS THAT WILL CHARGE YOUR FAVORITE RING ALONG WITH ANY JEWELRY OR TRINKETS KEPT INSIDE THIS BOX WHILE YOU SLEEP AT NIGHT. HIGH PRIESTESS REBECA WAS A GIFTED POWERFUL WICCAN WITCH THAT SHARED HER ABILITY TO HELP OTHERS THAT SEEKED HER OUT. MANY HAVE WITNESSED HER ASTOUNDING POWERS AND GIFTS. HER SPIRIT CONTINUES TO LIVE ON THROUGH THIS ITEM. HIGH PRIESTESS REBECA AND HER COVEN HAVE PLACED A VERY INTENSE AND POWERFUL LUCK, WEALTH AND PROSPERITY SPELL UPON THIS JEWELRY BOX THAT ATTACHES ITSELF TO THE ITEMS PLACED INSIDE THE BOX, THUS BRINGING LUCK, WEALTH AND PROSPERITY TO THE ONE WHO IS IN POSSESSION OF THE ITEMS.
Rebeca has kept her promise and continues to make visitations to anyone that owns one of her powerful pieces. If just the thought of this scares you in any way, this may not be the correct item to bid on at the moment. There are plenty of other items to bid on that may be more suitable for you. You must be able to accept any and all paranormal activity as a positive thing...

You can probably get it today but who wants to bet there is another available soon??Here is one more long one that comes in a plain unmarked package from a different seller this ring begins at $24.95 much less than a different seller's Pirate Love ring containing the bound souls of a pirate couple bound to it beginning at $159.Neither ring has a size stated.This is the Nymph Aids Love
Saying after a lengthy introductory story

Nymph Aids $24.95
..Sweet nymph linked to item loves nature and tries to bring abundance of life pleasure and health( if you desire sex that too)Examples of things she can bestowed include:

ability to find lost people and/or objects
astral travel
boost in psychic abilities
constest/drawings winnings
creative wealth
dream interpretation
energy and creativity

glamour (like physical shape shifting but purely illusionary)
heightened magickal work
monetary gain
protection

A testimonial follows from a couple who did not approve of their son's homosexuality and gave him this ring feel he is no longer looking at men or speaking effeminitly.

.Last, sounds more reasonable but begins at $103.



This is Spooky!! This Old Wood box was found in the attic of an old house in Xenia Ohio. The house was owned by an elderly Palm reader. This old woman is now deceased. They auctioned many things off and searched the house for any remaining items, Thats when the box was found. The only items in the box was a 1900 Indian Head Penny and a old ring. The inner band of the ring is inscribed with < U>. This box has been on my table with the lid closed and open the next morning! This Box measures 7" wide, 4 " tall and 4" depth. It has a great carved design. Own this mystical treasure! $103.50


Hope this did not bore you, but I found it fascinating.You know of course I am not in favor or supportive of any of these type ideas or items.I can hardly believe they are considered.

OMG! Ebay hauntings! I use to work at this video store and we would look for that stuff in between customers. As a joke one of my coworkers posted a Haunted Mirror and someone bought it for like some crazy amount of money! Like $100 or something. The really crazy part was the description he put was so obviously made up. It takes all kinds! This was maybe 3 years ago now.
Your blog is awesome! I'm bookmarking it!

interesting! But if they were as magickal as proclaimed, do you really think they would a) be selling them for so cheap or b) be selling them at all?? and on ebay of all places!!

Ebay is always full of these kinds of items - including that painting a while ago, which made headlines all around the world. I tend to ignore these items, but sometimes one of my own interests coincides with someones haunted listing. Of course, I don't buy the item. Although I have many interests in the metaphysical area, I'm not going to be believing an Ebay haunted item story...I've seen so many of them and they are laughable at best.

Great blog, by the way.
