There’s a wealth of valuable antiques to be found online, but dealing with sellers you’ve never met in person comes with a little hesitation.
Some pretty unusual items come up for auction. We’re often amazed to find out what they sold for. Some of these high-dollar items only sell so high because they have famous connections. Other items seem super ordinary to us. And, some never even sell for a variety of factors. Here are a few the craziest auction items we’ve seen lately. And, you’ll be surprised at what they fetched!
5) A Piece of Cake from the Wedding of Prince Charles and Lady Diana
It seems an odd thing to auction and is even odder when you consider that they were married in 1981 and the slice of cake sold in 2015 for $1,375. The alcohol content of the fruit cake is said to have kept it preserved in edible condition. Would you ever buy a 34 year old piece of cake? Watch the video to get a better look at the slice and hear one of the pre-auction estimates.
