Something every good salesperson knows is that if you want to sell something, you need to show the buyer the positive benefits to owning the merchandise.  Saying that an item has caused you pain and suffering would not be a good example of this method.  Unless you're trying to make it out to be haunted to sell it to someone who loves that kind of stuff.

Joseph Birch, 20, and Sotiris Charalambous, 43, said they found the cursed mirror outside their apartment five months ago so they took it inside to use.  They had no idea that it was haunted.

“Stabbing pains” and  “flickering shadows and glimpses of black darkness” are just a couple of the things they say they have seen in the mirror.  They've both had nightmares and Joseph even woke up with scratch marks on his body since they've brought the mirror in the house.  So they've decided to sell it.

It's listed on eBay for 100 pounds but they haven't received any bids higher than the reserve yet.

So why are they telling people how bad it is?  They feel like it wouldn't be right to sell it to someone without telling them about the evil that comes with it.  They're hoping to sell it to someone who has experience with the paranormal?

“I think someone could have been murdered in front of the mirror and that’s why it has been haunting out house. I don’t think the mirror likes it since I painted it silver. I took it to an antique dealer who said it was worth £100, and that’s why we’re asking for the price. But we would ideally like it to go to someone who has experience of the paranormal,” Sotiris said.


Would you ever buy something that was haunted?  What's the strangest thing you've ever bought on eBay or Craigslist?
