I Sold it on eBay!

Hat fanciers ’round the world, get your credit cards out. As of Monday morning, there will be just five days left to bid on Princess Beatrice’s horrifically famous hat of doom from Prince William and Kate Middleton’s wedding last month. San Jose-based eBay has received a lot of positive publicity since the spoiled royal decided to place her pretzel-gone-wrong chapeau on the auction site, as a benefit for UNICEF and Children in Crisis. Sunday evening, the price of this “fascinator,” as high society calls them, was more than $17,000.

A high-profile charity auction from such a worldwide event (estimated audience of the royal wedding – hundreds of millions people) is a good thing for eBay. Although the sale of its former holding Skype raised its stock a little, lately, it has only been in the news lately with things like some guy’s Camaro recovered after being stolen in 1975.
