10 of the weirdest, creepiest and most chilling items for sale in Glasgow on eBay

While it's fair to say there are certain items you might struggle to hawk down the Barras, in the online world, there's a market for just about everything. Firm evidence of this exists most readily on eBay, which, for the past two decades has been the world's most popular auction website, and allows people to sell pretty much any item or product you can possibly imagine. It therefore goes without saying that you'll find plenty of listings to suit less conventional tastes. It's for this very reason that eBay felt the need to create a dedicated "weird" section. Naturally, it's a category that Glasgow sellers have not been shy in contributing towards. Vintage surgeon's bone saw If you know of an eBay listing that's more unsettling than a stainless steel surgeon's saw that will have likely been involved in the amputation of people's limbs, please don't get in touch. Hand-sculpted baby in glass dome pendant Foetus pendant, includes cord and placenta. If solitude is what you seek, make a point of showing this to all of your friends. Mixed-media taxidermy sculpture At first glance, it's just an owl. Then you notice the horns, bunny ears, dug's nose, lips, and butterfly wings. Perfect for ensuring no-one wants to come round for dinner ever again. Sticking with the taxidermy theme, anyone fancy a stuffed rodent with a harness and fake unicorn horn strapped to its head? Anyone? Hello..? Canary animal skull brooch "Say, that's a beautiful little canary skull brooch you've got there". Said no-one ever. Billed as an "actual" radiograph of a female chesty cavity and thorax, this could be yours for less than a tenner. There's a demand online for developed radiographs it seems, but what it is you're supposed to do with this, other than scare off children, remains unclear. Empty Absolut Vodka bottle Generally speaking, bottles of vodka are marketable prior to the contents having been tanked. This being Scotland, we're no strangers to making a bit of coin from our empties, but sticking them on eBay is perhaps going a tad too far? Why have just one creepy vintage doll, when you can buy three all at once? According to the listing, the small one's neck is a "bit loose", which is quite possibly the most terrifying bit of information we could have received. Cold War era pistol holster A prime bit of Cold War memorabilia, this item was supposedly equipped by an officer of the "Stasi", East Germany's secret police force. "Condition is used" claims the listing, which is totally unnerving. Original painting of Scots comedian Limmy A lovely piece of original art here by a Glasgow seller. If you've never seen Limmy before, and have no idea what he looks like, then this might just be the item for you.
