With last week’s snow many people that would have been looking for a new home in 2013 had to abandon their searches until travel conditions improved.
However, if they were to look on ebay, they would have seen that a new property had just come on the market in a prime location with plenty of opportunity to expand, all for a cool £216,000.
Ebay and the Imaginary Items
It’s not a rarity for weird and wonderful items to go for big bucks on the internet, and ebay has it all. From air guitars to haunted wine cabinets, you’re never more than a few clicks from a truly bizarre item and this is no exception.
Our eagle eyed team came across a bid war going on for a “big igloo with lots of room” earlier today and we’ve been keeping our eyes (but not our money) on the item for some time and to our surprise the already hugely inflated bids have kept going up and up. As you can see from the screenshot above, the snowy fortress had already reached a massive total of £215,600 with 25 minutes left to go.
This well crafted igloo is the product of last weekend’s massive amounts of snow, which put most of the country under an icy blanket and stopped many people getting to work. However, this didn’t stop one clever 12 year old boy from seizing the opportunity to make some money from their day off school.
With the frosty castle finally going for close to £216k, the boy won’t be short on sweets and toys – or whatever children are into these days – for the foreseeable future.
Time to start building Which-Igloo-4U to help people try to find a snow house for less we think!
