Record Number of Haunted Items Available Through Popular Online Auction Sites

 

Story by A.Pustanio

 

For the truly curious who have maxed out their tachophile collections of mourning jewelry and Victorian post-mortem portraiture there is an ever-increasing variety of purportedly haunted items available through online auctions.

From haunted furniture to haunted Furbies, if you're looking for it, you'll probably find it online.

A real live haunted chucky doll for sale!

 

Once a peripheral adjunct to in-person yard and estate sale searches, now the seeker of the truly unique and hopefully haunted can shop from the comfort of home. With a simple click of the mouse you can anticipate the arrival of your very own "Haunted Chucky Doll" or "Haunted Hypnotic Spirit Vortex Ring (Real Ghost Goth Wicca)" -- guess the owner was trying to cover all the bases there. Shopping online for the paranormal is easier than ever.

There is no doubt that this new craze was truly galvanized when, a few years ago, the "Haunted eBay Painting" began to make the blog rounds and became a feature on practically every paranormal website available. The portrait was a truly disturbing and surreal piece of work without the added flair of actually being haunted, but once the glamour of ghostly activity was connected to the work it became an online phenomenon.

THE ORIGINAL EBAY TEXT THAT ACCOMPANIED THE PAINTING

The famous Haunted Ebay Painting by  Bill Stoneham, "hands Resist Him"

WHEN WE RECEIVED THIS PAINTING, WE THOUGHT IT WAS REALLY GOOD ART. A " PICKER " HAD FOUND IT ABANDONED BEHIND AN OLD BREWERY. AT THE TIME WE WONDERED A LITTLE WHY A SEEMINGLY PERFECTLY FINE PAINTING WOULD BE DISCARDED LIKE THAT. ( TODAY WE DON'T !!! ) ONE MORNING OUR 4 AND 1/2 YEAR OLD DAUGHTER CLAIMED, THAT THE CHILDREN IN THE PICTURE WERE FIGHTING, AND COMING INTO THE ROOM DURING THE NIGHT. NOW, I DON'T BELIEVE IN UFOS OR ELVIS BEING ALIVE, BUT MY HUSBAND WAS ALARMED. TO MY AMUSEMENT HE SET UP A MOTION TRIGGERED CAMERA FOR THE NIGHTS. AFTER THREE NIGHTS THERE WERE PICTURES.THE LAST TWO PICTURES SHOWN ARE FROM THAT 'STAKEOUT'. AFTER SEEING THE BOY SEEMINGLY EXITING THE PAINTING UNDER THREAT, WE DECIDED, THE PAINTING HAS TO GO.PLEASE JUDGE FOR YOURSELF. --- BEFORE YOU DO, PLEASE READ THE FOLLOWING WARNING AND DISCLAIMER. ----WARNING: DO NOT BID ON THIS PAINTING IF YOU ARE SUSCEPTIBLE TO STRESS RELATED DISEASE, FAINT OF HEART OR ARE UNFAMILIAR WITH SUPERNATURAL EVENTS. BY BIDDING ON THIS PAINTING, YOU AGREE TO RELEASE THE OWNERS OF ALL LIABILITY IN RELATION TO THE SALE OR ANY EVENTS HAPPENING AFTER THE SALE, THAT MIGHT BE CONTRIBUTED TO THIS PAINTING. THIS PAINTING MAY OR MAY NOT POSESS SUPERNATURAL POWERS, THAT COULD IMPACT OR CHANGE YOUR LIFE. HOWEVER, BY BIDDING YOU AGREE TO EXCLUSIVELY BID ON THE VALUE OF THE ARTWORK, WITH DISREGARD TO THE LAST TWO PHOTOS FEATURED IN THIS AUCTION, AND HOLD THE OWNERS HARMLESS IN REGARD TO THEM AND THEIR IMPACT, EXPRESSED OR IMPLIED.------------ NOW THAT WE GOT THIS OUT OF THE WAY, ONE QUESTION TO YOU EBAYERS. WE WANT OUR HOUSE TO BE BLESSED AFTER THE PAINTING IS GONE, DOES ANYBODY KNOW, WHO IS QUALIFIED TO DO THAT? THE SIZE OF THE PAINTING IS 24 BY 36 INCHES, SO IT IS RATHER LARGE. AS I HAVE HAD SEVERAL QUESTIONS, HERE THE FOLLOWING ANSWERS. THERE WAS NO ODOR LEFT BEHIND IN THE ROOM. THERE WERE NO VOICES, OR THE SMELL OF GUNPOWDER, NO FOODPRINTS OR STRANGE FLUIDS ON THE WALL. TO DETER QUESTIONS IN THIS DIRECTION, THERE ARE NO GHOSTS IN THIS WORLD , NO SUPERNATURAL POWERS, THIS IS JUST A PAINTING, AND MOST THESE THINGS HAVE AN EXPLANATION, IN THIS CASE PROBABLY A FLUKE LIGHT EFFECT. I ENCOURAGE YOU TO BID ON THE ARTWORK, AND CONSIDER THE LAST TWO PHOTOGRAPHS AS PURE ENTERTAINMENT, AND PLEASE DO NOT TAKE THEM INTO CONSIDERATION, WHEN BIDDING. AS WE THINK IT IS A GOOD IDEA TO BLESS ANY HOUSE, WE STILL WELCOME INPUT INTO THAT PROCEDURE.

This auction is nearing the end. I want to thank the more than 13000 people that took the time to look at this image on Ebay. I appreciate the more than 30 suggestions, that I received regarding blessing the house, exorcising and cleansing. 7 e-mails reported strange or irregular events taking place, when viewing this image. And I will relay two suggestions made by the senders. First not to use this image as the background on the screen, and second not to display this image around juveniles or children. Last not least, thanks for appreciating the art as well.

 

In February, 2000 the sudden appearance of a rather strange painting with the accompanying title of "Haunted Painting" made it's debut on Ebay.com. Of course a title like this is going to attract attention and it's still discussed to this day whether the painting is genuinely haunted or not. Even stranger is the reactions that the general public had when viewing the photos of the painting.

The artist is Bill Stoneham, the painting title is "Hands Resist Him".
You can visit his website at Stoneham Studios. http://www.stonehamstudios.com/default.html
Bill tells of how he painted Hands Resist Him in 1972, the boy in the picture being himself, the hands being other lives, the windows/door being a thin veil between waking and dreaming with the small doll like girl being the guide through.

Bill does not know how his painting ended up abandoned as described by the Ebay.com seller, but he does know a gallery owner where the painting was originally displayed and sold at, and a Los Angeles Times critic, who reviewed the show, were both dead within one year of the painting being shown.

   

Offered at auction on eBay by a family allegedly "terrified" by what they claimed were "demonic" manifestations associated with it, the portrait enjoyed superstar status and catapulted a vast assortment of other everyday items into the paranormal spotlight.

 

 

eBay: HAUNTED PAINTING HELP ME GET THIS OUT OF MY HOUSE (item 5605562971 end time Aug-16-05 18:52:42 PDT) Help me please!!

I need to rid my life of this painting that haunts me and my family.

This is a painting that was created by my Great Aunt Caroline when she was just a little girl. It always spooked me growing up and when ever I visited my Aunt Caroline I wanted to avoid the painting but was always drawn to it. It made me feel very uneasy but curious. Because my attraction to it, she insisted that I have it after she passed on and because of my love for Carrie I had to accept it with a teary smile. A week after her funeral I with much hesitance, hung my memory on the wall and that's when the horror began.

The very night I hung it I shot up in bed to the sound of banging on the wall. As soon as I turned on the lights the sound stopped. I wrote it off to the neighbors downstairs and quickly went back to sleep. The next morning I was shocked to see the wall around the picture wall all marked and when I removed the painting I swear I could see a face looking back at me. CAN YOU SEE THE FACE ALSO? I dropped the picture and ran screaming into my boyfriends arms crying. He looked at it and being the skeptic that he is told me that it must have been just a water leak but the wall was dry!!!

He hid the painting in the back of the closet because of my terror and called the super to have the wall repaired. Everything went back to normal.

One year from my Aunt Caroline's passing, I woke up in the morning, shaking in bed to find in front of me, the painting on the wall and the same markings all around it on the wall!! This time I wouldn’t touch it and I made my boyfriend take the picture off the wall and there it was…. The face staring at me again.

I have to get this painting out of my life and my siblings wont take it knowing its history. My love for my Aunt Carrie wont let me throw it in the trash so someone PLEASE, PLEASE HELP ME AND BUY THIS PAINTING. PLEASE!!!

The picture measures 22 X 13.

The oil painting is in perfect condition. The frame has some damage as you can see in the photo. There are a couple of places that have some wood missing. This is a very old and precious painting.

You are only bidding on this mystery painting, the ghost and or luck is free, you will get this item sent to you as is as seen no returns no warranty no promise of a miracle.

All sales final.

Happy bidding


 

After the success of the Haunted eBay Painting, everything from haunted dolls of dead children to Uncle Harry's haunted dentures became available to the discerning (or possibly not so discerning) online shopper.

A recent visit to eBay uncovered a wide selection of purportedly haunted dolls, most of which were of the porcelain/Victorian type, but with several Chucky dolls and a few haunted Barbies thrown in; a handsome collection of allegedly haunted jewelry including rings, bracelets, necklaces and earrings; a great number of haunted toys; and an ample selection of haunted furnishings. Each and every haunted or "paranormal" item comes with a Buyer Beware warning or a "Not for Children" tagline. Seems like you get what you pay for and sometimes you get a little more...

Whether or not all the items offered at auction online are actually truly haunted is debatable and that's probably what the buyer should beware most. However, there are several items that, like the Haunted eBay Painting, certainly ought to be haunted.

Many of these can be found by searching through eBay for items originating from the "Haunted Jacobs Funeral Home." The funeral home, located in Kokomo, Indiana, has a well-earned reputation as a truly haunted location (read the story HERE). While renovating the defunct funeral home, famous as the oldest African American funeral home in the Kokomo area, the current owners discovered a creepy treasure trove in the abandoned basement which once housed the morgue and crematorium. As work proceeded in the dank basement regions a selection of mysterious items began to be unearthed including boxes of photographs, old clothing, rotting funeral home records, stuffed animals, household items, and a large selection of jewelry -- presumably the jewelry of the long dead who passed through the funeral home on their way into the Beyond.

Many of these items are offered regularly at eBay by the owners of the former funeral home and if the Buyer Beware caveat ever applied it ought to apply to this creepy assortment.

Read the full story here: www.hauntedamericatours.com/voodoo/zombiebottles

Some items that caught the attention of the HAUNTED staff apparently originate in and around New Orleans, and this always seems to lend a glamour that simply "haunted" things sometimes lack. Once interesting piece of jewelry, supposed to be Masonic in origin, is offered as originating from just outside New Orleans; a purportedly haunted doll named Felicite is said to have come from an estate auction held "VERY NEAR" New Orleans. Probably the most amusing doll is a "genuine HAUNTED VOODOO DOLL" which on closer inspection is nothing more than a mass-produced souvenir shop curio. One thing can be said about New Orleans and its natives: when they go looking for a "real" Voodoo doll, they don't go to a French Quarter junk souvenir shop! Whether from the oungun, the manbo or the Creole "traiteur," locals know where to go to get true hoodoo!

Haunted furnishings are another interesting offering available at eBay and other online sites. If there are doubts about other items, there is probably less doubt about the authenticity of many of the purportedly haunted pieces of furniture and other home accessories offered to the online collector. Most of the items are verifiable antiques and although age alone does not necessarily guarantee a piece of furniture is haunted, it is certainly the fertile beginning of a patina of palpable ghostly charm. Everything from beds to chairs, lamps to chafing dishes are offered as allegedly haunted; some photographs even include the spirit orb energy of the ghostly inhabitant. But if one is in search of a truly possessed item, one must troll a little deeper through the underbelly of the web.

There the avid collector might come across the "corpse trunk" offered by one anxious seller. Said to have originated in Indian around the mid-1800's, the trunk is shown with primitive carvings of ghastly mutilation and cannibalistic rituals. The seller, after offering the ubiquitous "Buyer Beware" statement, describes how the sounds coming from the trunk often seem to mimic the sound flesh might make when pushing or rubbing against the inside of the trunk. Voices and horrible knockings are also ascribed to the trunk, the price of which is expectedly high for such a rare item.

This Print hung in the famous Haunted Lalaurie House, it was said by it's origninal owner to have had many strange things happen to it, from moving on the wall to flying across the room.

 

Others looking through the deep waters for troubling embellishments for the haunted home might also come across the haunted baby bed in which infants are alleged to have died in rapid succession (again "Buyer Beware") or the haunted waterbed (yes...) in which the former owner is alleged to have overdosed on drugs, but apparently still clings to his prized 70's bedstead.

What sets these items apart from all the other items is that, even in the online photo images, there is a discernible "feeling" to them, an overall impression that something about them is just "not quite right."

Take, for example, the haunted 1800's "barrel chair" acquired by one individual through an online estate sale. Every night since the chair was brought home a paranormal event has occurred near it. On more than one occasion its current owner has seen the ghost of a Napoleonic-era man sitting cross-legged in the chair and staring at him. Sometimes nothing is seen except the indentation on the seat when an unseen someone is sitting there.

Another item soon to be offered for sale online is a haunted acolyte bench that has brought nothing but bad luck to its owner since she brought it into her house. Found on the roadside in perfect condition, the bench (or kneeler) ought to have been the perfect complement to other religious items the owner had obtained, including a chiming clock and an elaborate altar chair which the owner otherwise happily displayed. Aside from finding the acolyte bench surprisingly hard to fit in among the other items, there was an immediate sense of anxiety and depression that began to pervade the surroundings; ultimately a string of bad luck ensued and the owner now traces this to the addition of the abandoned acolyte bench to her home.

Why would anyone offer such an item for sale? Moreover, why would anyone, knowing the history surrounding such an item, actually purchase it? The only answer is: There is someone out there who will buy this item. You, perhaps??
