So, this lovely item comes complete with a free babydoll skirt and ties at the back, with concealed side zip. The seller (who you should check out as they have some good bargains, which is what eBay is all about surely?) notes that it's a "Size L, fits a 14 perfectly but only up to about a C cup!"

The seller states: "Original Michael Jackson Thriller LP! QE38112 first release! I bought this record in LA 1982 when it first came out. Since that time the record has been played only one or two times when I bought it. You see the condition of the record is great. No scratches. Always standing upright in a smoke free room."
How much for it? Current bidding is $500,625.09! Wow!

If you want to be first in the know, then you should follow the eBay charity auctions on Twitter.
What a great little tool for those who want to be ahead of the game!
"eBay was built on a simple idea - that we could empower people by building a global trading platform where practically anyone could buy or sell practically anything. But that idea is now under threat from certain brand owners and manufacturers who are trying to turn back the clock and block the sale of their products on online marketplaces and other websites across the EU.
Ultimately, what is at stake is the right of sellers to compete fairly in the wider online marketplace, and the right of buyers to be able to access the best possible deals from the widest possible selection of goods. Some of these brand owners argue that their objective is to prevent the sale of counterfeits on eBay. But thanks to our work with 31,000 other rights owners, only 0.15% of listings last year were detected or reported as potentially counterfeit.
The real aim of these brands is to block the sale of all their products on our site - regardless of whether such items are new or second-hand, genuine or fake. It's not just luxury items that are affected, but also everyday items like children's toys, electronic equipment, lawnmowers and pushchairs. And if we want to prevent other brand owners from following suit, we need to act now. We are therefore calling on European policymakers to amend EU competition law to stop these unfair trade practices. But we need your help to persuade them to take action. If you would like to join our campaign against online trade barriers, please sign our petition."

Woody Guthrie's influence on American music cannot be ever fully comprehended. You could argue he was the beginnings of Western Pop music. That's what makes this auction so incredible... and expensive.
"Offered here is a remarkable body of work, compiled by Guthrie over a period of many years, at least from 1947 to 1955 (the years of his handwritten entries), which provides incredible insight into his creative process. This volume was obviously an integral tool in Woody Guthrie's songwriting process. In addition to being unique and containing hundreds of handwritten notes and signatures by Guthrie, this work might be the single most historically significant Guthrie document in existence."
If you want to find out more, there's loads of info and photos on the auction itself or, if you have just shy of $150,000 to spare, click here. A staggering auction.

Whith Andy Murray impressing at Queen's this weekend, interest and hype surrounding his performances at Wimbledon will be at a high. If you're confident that he'll reach the men's final, then you can bag tickets to the Men's Final Wimbledon 2009... but they won't come cheap.

You may well say that, but if you're some paranoid type, swivelling your head in North Korea's direction, then you might be interested in these KIO3 Potassium Iodate Nuclear Anti Radiation 60 pills.
The seller glares at you and says "You should buy KIO3 before a perceived threat becomes a reality, because, if a nuclear event happens and you haven't acquired KIO3, then it will be too late."
They probably don't work, but if you want to bid, click here

As I live in Manchester, there were a lot of tears floating around after the Champions League final match between Man United and Barcelona. Obviously, Barca won. It got me thinking about Tiny Tears... the little doll that wept gently as you squeezed her solar plexus.

Wearing original TT outfit comprising of dress, cardigan, beret, & bootees. All in great clean condition. As is doll just a couple of play marks. Hair great no plugs missing, all eyelashes intact, eyes great. No nibbles or digits missing."
