An unusual item on eBay can be very frustrating for shoppers as the listing for a painting claims the artwork is ‘cursed’ and comes with a macabre warning for those concerned sure to pay the price
As an “exotic stuff collector”, Dan Smith* claims that he was struck by the oddity of a painting he discovered during a visit to his local flea market and always always knew he wanted to take it home.
Although the woman at the stall supposedly warned Dan not to buy the artwork, he decided not to listen. After rethinking, he considers his purchase to be the “ultimate bad decision” and claims it has devastated his life ever since.
The artwork in question shows two baby dolls sitting together on a green-blue background. One of them is a blonde baby doll in a pink dress, while the other is a Raggedy Ann toy with a red mane.
Determined to get rid of the painting once and for all, Dan is currently selling the painting on eBay with prices starting at $50.00 (£37).
However, ghostly product descriptions can make buyers feel somewhat uncomfortable.
