Number of Haunted Items Available Through
Popular Online Auction Sites
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
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.
ORIGINAL EBAY TEXT THAT ACCOMPANIED THE
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

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

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
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
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

I need to rid my life
of this painting that haunts me and my
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
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 wouldnâ€™t touch
it and I made my boyfriend take the picture
off the wall and there it wasâ€¦.
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

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)
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
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
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
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.
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
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
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
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??
