Oh man oh man i've seen everything now. I didn't realize I had something to sell in my backyard on Ebay!! Twigs/tree branches. I guess it's true you can sell anything or at least try on ebay.

That is amazing. Perhaps I should be saving the lint from the dryer.

My all time favorite thing ever sold on ebay was this

Talk about truth!! I think this ultimately sold for $15,000 but the bids were retracted to about $4000. One heck of a ball game, right?

I never thought about selling yard waste on eBay. Usually I have to haul it to the dump for recycling. I have been missing out on a gold mine!

RE: Ebay sells everything "truer words were never spoken"

For the $3 listing and $5.21 shipping costs you could go buy your own saw and start your own ebay business!!! The sad thing is someone will probly buy it.

Yes, but they are special logs
They were bought retail and came in superflous packaging by a multinational company.
Not your regular garden variety prunnings, you know... 'Special'.

Just an up-date on the back yard salvage for sale on ebay, the guy actually got a bid and actually sold it???? Whood a thunk it????? and it was to someone with a high purchase score too, so it wasn't bought by someone who didn't know what they were doing for sure!! I guess one never knows, more strange happenings to come I presume right Watson???

And the corollary: "A fool and his money are soon at a party."

Now it is all a perception thing.

Perhaps the guy who bought them lives in a desert and has no access to trees let alone prunnings.
He may also be an oil shiek and have a guzzillion dracknels to part with for more choo choo stuff.
Or, may already have the X-mas, Mackas and Coke versions of logs and now want's the 'Standard' issue to fill out his extensive log collection.

They don't just grow on trees you know !
