I understand why someone may want to buy an empty pen box as her/his box may have been damaged or (s)he may have bought a pen/pencil without a box and I understand why someone may buy a broken vintage pen/pencil for spare parts, but, this is ridiculous: someone is selling a ripped/torn LL Bean paper bag into which one's purchase was put when shopping at an LL Bean Store.

This auction with starting price of $0.25 and Buy It Now price of $0.99 for a ripped/torn paper bag is a wasteful, ridiculous eBay listing. What is even more ridiculous is that the seller is charging $4.75 for shipping this ripped/torn paper bag! Oh, (s)he will ship this ripped/torn paper bag worldwide!

 

What can this seller hope to gain???? Why sell a silly paper bag and then have to pay eBay fees and PayPal fees? It just makes no sense to me!

This is me speechless.

Just as there are some nuts who collect fountainpens, there are people who collect advertisement bags.

 

As a kid I used to collect cigarbands, match-boxes, advertisement-pins, advertisement key-chains, and of course stamps, among others.

 

After her death it appeared my mother had a collection of book-marks, fancy hairpins, lady's fans, among others.

 

I saw a program a few months ago about a guy collecting mustard jars/bottles.

 

 

So, why not bags like these.

We better add a Marquette University ballpoint pen to your purchase of four sticky notes.

Does anybody remember "Ghost in a Jar" from a few years back? That spawned all sorts of ridiculousness.

I remember some media attention for the sale of an air guitar for $ 47.000 a few years back.

I never heard about "Ghost in a Jar". I just looked up "Ghost in a Jar" on Google and I see that I have some reading to do! As you may imagine, I am shaking my head in dismay right now.

Amazing! I googled this too -- more reading for me! I am surprised that no one has sold frogs on eBay claiming that if you kiss the frog that it will turn into a prince. Hmm, maybe I should google that too! How about some magic beans too! -- sarcasm intended and head still shaking in dismay --

I'm really tempted to buy the Bean bag but I already have a ripped bag from Williams-Sonoma and a Yankee Candle votive carrier. At some point I have to reign myself in and stop with all the excess.

Air guitars, ghosts, atmosphere, etc... Around 2000-2002, eBay was fuuuuull of that kind of stuff. They ended up finally having to make a rule against it... which is why, now, I guess you get all the left over bs type stuff.

The 1970's was the [ pet rock ] Buy a rock and keep warm and watered.

I did not have to buy one, I could just go to the railroad tracks and pick up all the rocks I could.

That is what we older people should start selling Vintage Pet Rocks :lticaptd:

yeah, well, it's not only e-bay that offers questionable items. This is what happens with too much automation on Amazon...

I hope the used ones are waaaay less expensive.

      @Texas42 Thank you. I myself have recently had the experience of cleaning out a Wing Sung 699, in which the iron-gall ink has been sitting for six months. No damage to the metal piston rod (whereas, in a Wing Sung 3013 vacuum-filler, it would have been corroded, turned green, and contaminated the ink in mere weeks), but there was a ring of colour at the far end of the barrel that wouldn't budge, and I found it impossible to unscrew the filling mechanism to clean the interior wall of the ink rese

      Dang. You are a great friend!   One comment as a relative newcomer would be within the cleaning section: issues/differences in cleaning vacuum filler, piston filler in addition to cartridge/converter. I just cleaned out my Pilot 823 and while it wasn't particularly difficult I was a little paranoid about the drops of water that I could not get out. Perhaps this is something you are already including.   Anyway, great project and very thoughtful of you. I know it's a project fo

      Hi Smug Dill,   Nice project.  If it were me, I'd cover stuff like: - nib types available, i.e. styles, materials (SS vs gold), flex vs nails; - filling systems (I love the "thingie" comment) and how once can use them in practice (e.g. fill cartridges with a syringe); - pen body materials and their consequences (pen not balanced of too heavy and big for the hand); - and, whilst you've made it clear that you do not like vintage pens, a discussion of these beyond "I d
    • A Smug Dill
      Thanks for your input! Yes, not putting wood in the list of body materials warranting a mention was an oversight. I love pens with wooden bodies, but my main concern, or chagrin, is that I have not come across a wooden-bodied pen with a wooden cap that seals well. Actually, there is one, but it isn't really wood per se: the Pilot Custom Kaede's maple body is resin impregnated. All other wooden pens I have can dry out while capped and undisturbed; that includes several Platinum #3776 models.
