If you feel like your Instagram feed has been getting a little dull lately, then we have just the account to follow to brighten things up. @Ebaybae is an account depicting all the most obscure and outrageous designer pieces for sale on eBay – and it makes for seriously funny browsing.
Run by Tae In Ahn – who actually works by day at the Costume Institute at the Metropolitan Museum of Art – the account displays legitimate eBay listings which must be one of two things (according to her interview with Dazed): “Highbrow ridiculous and lowbrow brilliant, or lowbrow ridiculous and highbrow brilliant”.
Examples include Louis Vuitton boxing gloves, Gucci snorkeling gear, doggy designer chew toys and a Dolce & Gabbana radio bag (that actually plays music).
“One of my favourite pastimes has always been eye-shopping, which escalated once I started grad school and got deep into object-based research,” she told Dazed on why she began the account. “It started out as a way to share absurd listings with friends and as an outlet to release my consumerist desires, basically all the things that I wish I could get if only I had an unlimited budget and an unlimited storage space.”
Here are some of our favourites.
