This is not a joke

We see a lot of wild and wacky things come across the pages of Value is in the eye of the seller and sometimes we wonder if certain ads are for real or not! Check out our collection of random, exotic and hilarious items that at first glance may seem like a joke, but are certainly up for debate.

Used staples

The first question this begs is why? Why gather used staples for “many months”? Why buy used staples? But, then again, $20 could be a steal for this item, so why not?!



1/4 bottle of nail polish remover

This one is somewhat baffling and makes us wonder: why is it no longer needed? Did the seller lose their fingernails and toenails? There is nothing better than getting something for free, however, we are interested in seeing who the taker of this item will be – it’s still available on if you are interested!
