  • Ah, eBay, the perfect place  to pick up unexpected items.  

  • You might get a beloved household knickknack,  a rare collector's item...or a curse.

  • Here are the shocking stories of the  most haunted items ever sold on eBay.

  • #10. The Anguished Man

  • The second you look into this portrait's  ghastly face, it's not surprising people  

  • think it's haunted. A demonic visage with its eyes  inky black and its mouth unnaturally wide open,  

  • it looks as if it's about to suck the soul  of any unfortunate person who spends too long  

  • looking directly into its gaping maw. Described as  a “horrific paranormal portraitby the original  

  • owner, they claim to have experienced supernatural  events while having it in their house - including  

  • footsteps and bird songs coming out of nowhereand even doors opening and closing by themselves.

  • But is there any truth to these terrifying claims?

  • Well...that's the rub with buying haunted  objects on eBay. There's no way to know.  

  • The auction site allows for anything to  be sold that doesn't violate their rules,  

  • and all you have to go on is the owner's  promises - or warnings. For the person who  

  • eventually bought this terrifying portraitthey may have found out the hard way - or  

  • they may have had a very awkward conversation  piece and nothing more. Or maybe they thought  

  • it was the perfect revenge for that Aunt who got  them socks every birthday when they were a kid.

  • But this next item might have  found a more enthusiastic audience.

  • #9. The Haunted Bra

  • It's one of the least frightening - but maybe  one of the least sanitary - items posted on eBay.  

  • A single used bra, white and kind of ratty,  

  • and designed for a woman with a 32 A bust. But  it's also packing some major spirit power - or  

  • so claims Tonya_Rose, the woman selling itBut this isn't a second-hand bra - it's a  

  • third-hand bra, because the listing claims it  belonged to a deceased woman - one who lived  

  • a life with a lot of sex, partying, and  adventure before she met an untimely end.

  • So why would anyone want her used undergarments?

  • Because according to the seller, she never  quite left. Her spirit is still hanging around  

  • in her bra, and anyone who wears it will  inherit her success in the romantic world.  

  • Get ready for a big increase in the number  of admirers and gifts. But it may not have  

  • wound up with a woman - because it supposedly  has another ability. If someone places it by  

  • a lit white candle, the spirit of the woman  will appear. And when placed by a red candle,  

  • she'll grant the owner a sexual encounter with  the spirit world. Terrifying - and erotic claims.

  • But another cursed piece of attire  may make it even harder to sleep.

  • #8. Tapping From Beyond

  • A simple pair of tap shoesmade from black leather,  

  • one adorned by a fancy red bow. They looked  just as if they could be slipped on for a tap  

  • recital - but they were last used a very  long time ago. A little girl named Lisa,  

  • who loved to dance, put them on one last time  - and at some point met an untimely end. There  

  • they sat, in an old nursery closet, until they  were dug up during an estate sale alongside a  

  • collection of old clothing and toys. Perhaps they  could be put to use again all this time later.

  • But Lisa's spirit may have had other ideas.

  • The seller, Haunted_Hearts, posted that  they had experienced disturbing things while  

  • cleaning out their late Aunt's house. There  were mysterious knocking sounds coming from  

  • inside the closet - almost as if the shoes  were tapping by themselves. Not only that,  

  • but the house they were found in had a disturbing  history of murder and rumors of ghosts - including  

  • that of a nine-year-old girl who died of an  illness. Was this the unfortunate Lisa? And if so,  

  • would she finally be put to rest - or follow  her shoes to their new home? Someone found out.

  • It wasn't the only household object  that seemed to function on its own.

  • #7. The Thirsty Donkey

  • Going through an old person's estate  will often turn up a few quirky items,  

  • but few odder than this one - a decorative  drinking jug held in a miniature cart,  

  • pulled along by a porcelain donkey. The posterGriffey911NY, had known about this item since  

  • he was a child - it was always on display  in his grandmother's house, and she always  

  • kept it full of water. But after she passed  away and he was taking care of her estate,  

  • he bumped into it one day - and it  became clear something was very wrong.

  • How was the donkey's jug filled with  water when there was no one to fill it?

  • He thought it may have been left over and  ignored it - but over time, it seemed to  

  • happen repeatedly. The level of water didn't stay  the same - it seemed to increase spontaneously.  

  • While his grandmother may have been willing  to keep the mysterious object around her home,  

  • the seller eventually decided he had to  get rid of it and put it up for auction.  

  • For someone who wants a constant supply of water  around the house, it may be a good investment if  

  • its abilities prove true - but the superstitious  may think twice before taking a swig.

  • This next item may be a bit  more...high maintenance.

  • #6. The Djinn Mask

  • It looks like an exotic curio to keep in  the house - a curious-looking metal mask  

  • that resembles a monkey. But the seller hadfantastical story to tell. They claimed to have  

  • visited Thailand and watched a supernatural  battle, as a witch used spells to bind the  

  • spirit of a djinn to the mask, trapping it. The  mask became packed with supernatural powers,  

  • and anyone who owned it would reap the rewardsNot only would the Djinn mask supposedly fend  

  • off vampires, but it would bring great  riches to anyone who treated it well.

  • But treating it well involves a bit of work.

  • Most haunted objects, you just put them in your  house and things get weird. But for this mask,  

  • expect the household food budget to go  up. The Djinn requires regular offerings  

  • of food and drink, as well as expecting the  owner to meditate in front of it for twenty  

  • minutes three times a day. And if you own  the mask and don't do these things? Well,  

  • you've just angered an ancient spirit bound  to a cursed mask. Nothing bad will happen,  

  • I'm sure. Just keep an eye on those food offering  plates to see if they start disappearing

  • But no haunted object is more  unassuming than this next one

  • #5. A Ziploc Bag?

  • It's not often that a haunted object  comes in packs of three, six, or nine,  

  • but that's exactly what Rusty_Raccoon  is offering on eBay - packs of ziploc  

  • bags that may just transport your  leftovers to another dimension.  

  • The listing claims that these bags have the  mystical power of reversing time. You simply place  

  • your leftovers or snack foods inside, and not  only will the bag keep them fresh indefinitely,  

  • but it will turn back time. Supposedly, if you  put in stale or spoiled food and take it out,  

  • it'll be fresh again. True or not? Only one way  to find out, and it may involve indigestion.

  • But these bags claim to have  another, more shocking power.

  • Their abilities extend beyond foodand the haunted Ziploc bag may even  

  • be able to heal people. So how do you  get a person inside a plastic bag?  

  • You don't, but if you can get ahold of a lock  of their hair and place it inside, they may be  

  • healed through the power of another dimensionBold claims, and this is the rare enchanted eBay  

  • artifact that doesn't claim to hold a dangerous  spirit. But one thing's for sure - with a  

  • starting asking price of $25, the seller was  getting a supernaturally good profit margin.

  • A Photograph can be a powerful memento - but  this next one leaves a lasting impression.

  • #4. The Endlessly Smelling Photograph

  • It looks like a memento from an old family albuman ancient, browned photograph of a sharp-dressed  

  • gentleman who has long since passed from this  world. Supposedly from the Victorian era and  

  • containing a picture of a man named Martin, it was  found like so many of these objects were - in a  

  • dusty old attic. The owner was impressed by this  old photograph, and frequently brought it out  

  • to show off to guests. But as time went on, it  became clear something didn't seem quite right.

  • Or rather, something didn't smell quite right.

  • The photo album always seemed to have an odd smell  around it. Could it be lingering scents from the  

  • time it was used, that had been stored there after  it was sealed away? The only problem with that  

  • theory is that the scents weren't always the sameSometimes it was a lovely scent of roses, other  

  • times it smelled like something was smoking - and  other times it was the sharp smell of a wood fire.  

  • It was worrying enough that the owner supposedly  contacted the spirit within with a Ouija board.  

  • While the ghost didn't seem hostile, paranormal  activity around the home reportedly increased -  

  • and that was enough for them to get it out of  their house and into the hands of a collector.

  • But this next object packed the supernatural  power of a whole cursed location.

  • #3. Asylum Knobs

  • There are few locations filled with more dark  energy than old-fashioned asylums. They were full  

  • of insane, sometimes violent people - who were  the victims as often as they were the danger.  

  • It was common for patients to be subjected  to violent treatment including beatings,  

  • solitary confinement, electroshock therapyand lobotomies. Unexpected deaths of patients  

  • were common, and the bodies were usually  buried right on site. It's not a surprise  

  • that abandoned asylums are one of the  most common sites for ghost sightings.

  • So why would someone bring that home?

  • The gates to the asylum are  literally the doors to horror,  

  • but someone decided that the perfect memento  from one of those asylums would be to take the  

  • knobs from the doors. But it's just a pair of  knobs...right? Well, the seller hadn't claimed  

  • any supernatural events happening after they  took the knobs home - but they did say that  

  • the asylum itself was home to strange lights  and noises despite there being no one there. So  

  • for anyone who wants to bring the doorknobs  from an abandoned asylum home...good luck.

  • But some haunted objects  pack a much bigger threat.

  • #2. Dybbuk Boxes

  • It started in 2003, when writer Kevin Mannis  auctioned an old wine cabinet on eBay.  

  • He claimed that it had been owned by a Holocaust  survivor, and ever since he possessed it, he  

  • had been haunted. It was sold, and several other  owners reported increasingly terrifying phenomena.  

  • The claim was that these boxes contained  sealed spirits that, when opened,  

  • would terrorize the people in the house until  they were sealed up again by a religious ritual.  

  • It became one of the most well-investigated  supernatural incidents in paranormal history.

  • So naturally, it turned out  there was more than one.

  • If you go on eBay, you'll find a whole host of  people claiming to be selling authentic dybbuk  

  • boxes. They warn of mischievous spiritshaunting origins, and disturbing dreams.  

  • While most people wouldn't want these  boxes anywhere near their homes,  

  • fans of the supernatural want to find  out for themselves. In many cases,  

  • they'll get an empty box mislabeled as a Dybbuk  box to lure in suckers. But maybe once in a while,  

  • they'll find something more. And there are no  shortage of people looking to find out the truth.

  • But there is one haunted object  that shows up more than any other.

  • #1. Dolls. So Many Dolls

  • It all started with Annabelle - the supposedly  haunted doll kept by the Warrens at their museum  

  • of the paranormal. While the supernaturally  murderous doll is safely locked up,  

  • her existence kick-started a wave of  interest in creepy old dolls of every type.  

  • And it's impossible to spend a few  minutes on eBay without finding  

  • a listing of someone claiming their old  porcelain or rag doll is actually cursed.

  • And whatever your tastes arethere's a haunted doll for you.

  • Among the oddest selections are a Star Wars  Stormtrooper that will make people hallucinate  

  • house fires, a bride and groom doll whose faces  glow a supernatural red, an old-fashioned clown  

  • doll that supposedly moves around on its own at  night, and a cartoonish ape-man named Da Grunt - a  

  • popular 80s toy - that reportedly doesn't  need batteries anymore. And we can't forget  

  • all the voodoo dolls out there. For many haunted  doll fans, the question is - why stop at one?

  • After all, what could go wrong with hundreds  of haunted dolls in the same house, right?
