Saw this peach of a deal on Ebay. Thought it was one of the funniest things I've seen on there in quite a while
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Ancient-Oli...324?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item19cb2b7164

Anyone know the seller? Apparently, he's in the LA. Certainly if he's selling stock for $23 grand, he's a knowledgeable bonsai mogul...

For a few more chuckles, click on his other sales...

How about that $11,500 elm tree with a "5 inch circumference trunk?" Bull.

You know how knowledgable they are when they measure the trunks circumference and not the diameter.

Are they really serious?

It's not even April Fool's Day!
Then again he just might find a sucker with too much $$$.
He hasn't sold anything since '09.......

I like the line "will ship anywhere". What he SHOULD say is "will personally accompany tree with a 1st class plane ticket, and overnight accommodations at a 4 Seasons Resort, to any location on the planet".

All it takes is ONE sucker and he's made a 28,000 percent profit...

Perhaps he's laundering money. That's one of the older tricks, overpaying for "art". I mean, has to be right, cause this guy can't be serious.

LOL, he's got a "noguchi couch" reduced to about $2,300, but if you read the description, the thing is a REPRODUCTION of a noguchi couch made on Longuyland in the 1980's. Shipping not included. Wow, such a deal...

He'll probably get upset if I tell him that I just removed 38 palms from my lawn that match the palms he is selling for $1,500 :)
