What's the craziest thing you ever sold?

I guess I should also say what's the craziest thing you ever sold or tried to sell. Almost every night when I go online to check my sales for the day, my husband is totally convinced that someone has bought his anvil. He has an anvil in the booth. He rescued it from a barn that burned down and was set to be demolished. The original owner was our neighbor. He passed away a few years ago at the age of 92. The anvil is very old, but Kevin painted black so it doesn't show its age very much.

I think that the niche for anvil buyers is really small and I don't think he's ever going to sell it. It's not like it's something that can be moved around easily-especially this one-it weighs 131 pounds!!

Tonight Kevin and I had our little chuckle about it and then he suggested we get a Wylie E.Coyote stuffed doll and put it under the anvil...ha ha! I guess you had to be there! I'm sure we are the only booth in the whole mall with an anvil-maybe we'll be the only one in the mall with an anvil squishing a cartoon coyote...or maybe we should decorate it for Easter...

What about you? Have you tried to sell any crazy things? Were you successful? Want to buy an anvil? ;)
