Rags to riches on eBay

No primary category set

Imagine wandering around the market or going to a car boot sale at the weekend and picking up an item for a few pence. You get home and list it on eBay and it sells for tens of thousands of pounds – well that’s what’s happening to Warren Hill of Montreal! He picked up a rare recording of the Velvet Underground for just 75 cents and bidding is now up to $128,600.00

The music on the record dates from a 1966 recording at Scepter Studios in New York, overseen by Warhol. Rather than a commercially pressed album, it is a fragile acetate cut in the studio so the musicians could review the day’s work at home.

Next time you go to the carboot sale keep your eyes open, it just might happen to you too!
