You See the Strangest Listings on eBay....

submitted on September 1, 2010 by HouTex in "Member's Lounge"
Lots of people get attached to their pets and want to bury them in style when they pass away. But this option's kinda over the top, it's a one-of-a-kind pottery hamster coffin with Swarovski crystals and sterling silver trim. No bidding here, it's a Buy It Now listing for a mere $17,950 (shipping is free) -
"For that special departed Hamster or mouse that has given you joy."

It was featured on the Jay Leno Show and it's signed by the artist, Russ Esse.
Sorry, it will not fit large rats, guinea pigs, or broken Zhu Zhu hamsters.

The 4 piece set includes:
- Burial base with 2 large Swarovski crystals at either end.
- Inner cover with 6 Swarovski crystals
- Outer cover with sterling silver hamster head and sterling silver laminated handle
- Bowl of ceramic sunflower seeds to feed your pet on his journey to the afterworld



They even have a special category for this stuff: Everything Else > Weird Stuff > Totally Bizarre

      Well, it's a lot more deluxe than the burial we used to give the goldfish. Roll Eyes

      Our family wanted to have our first dog stuffed "so we could keep him forever." Eeek

      It's a pretty emotional time for them, and somehow I always have to be the one who takes care of this.
