    Default Anyone want a $35 dollar empty Pure Coffee Bottle?

    Yea you heard me right!
    Infact, this faboulous piece of art was for sale for $75 dollars about two months ago on ebay.
    Dont get me wrong. I am not the seller. Of course I would not be questioning people's intelligence with a listing like that, nor I would want to rob anyone this way.

    However, I made an offer to this seller on ebay if he would be willing to take $40 dollars for his amazingly cool empty Pure Coffee bottle thats probably worth hundreds. (Of course I wouldnt pay it, I was just messing with him to get his hopes up that he actually found the idiot who he was hoping to find)



    This was his reply to my question;


    Well, my frends. That was two months ago. Today, that eighth wonder of the world, amazingly cool piece of art empty bottle is up for sale again. Anyone want to buy it?

    Counterfeit makers can also put replicated juice in it to make it is convincing that it is real.

    Sad thing is that there are 11 watchers on that AV bottle, lol.

    you think those wathcers are really interested in buying that bottle and hoping the seller would reduce the price or they just want to see if it will actually sell?

    Haha, maybe they are seeing if it actually sells.

    Since when does the A&F brand use that shape of bottle for their room sprays?! haha

    Also it's the same seller of that never-seen-before empty bottle of fierce room spray.

    Saw an ebay listing for 250ml of Creed White Flowers for $50. Seemed outrageously low until I read further and found out that the bottle was empty. Seems like it's becoming a new trend. The least they can do is indicate it in the title.

    The real suckers are the ones paying top dollar for these fakes. Like that empty Aventus bottle, probably filled with Fresco or worse and re-listed.

    This auction is for an empty bottle of Pure Coffee.

    There are minor scuffs on the exterior. The rubber that surrounds the spray mechanism has not been cut.

    Perfect for your A*Men collection!

    CONUS only.

    Please buy with confidence.
    What can I say, after reading these, I am very tempted. It sounds like its well worth it. I think he is under valuing his masterpiece.

    I added to cart.

    Someone once bought a cornflake on the Bay for 1500 bucks or something cause it looked like the state of Illinois. Lol, I think people have auctioned off one dollar bills and the auction goes over a dollar..like by 5,10,25 cents. Lol.

    The only thing I can think of, and it's a little crazy but does make sense... is these bottles are high end product and show $$$ so I've heard of interior designers or home stagers using these sort of things as props around a house, which is why they'll pay $10-40 for a bottle, even empty because it's way cheaper than a full one and they can redisplay it many times anyway plus no risk that someone will actually try and use it at an openhouse.
    NEW STUFF FOR SALE - TOM FORD, Guerlain, Acqua Di Parma, Serge Lutens, Byredo, Diptyque, etc. .

    Most of the time I am very proud of the Basenotes community. Time after time I have witnessed the thoughtfulness, empathy & genuine friendship that members of this community extend to others - oldtimers & newcomers alike. There are other times, however, when egos get the upper hand and civility goes out the window. My philosophy is that I won't say anything here that I would not say if you were standing in front of me. Welcome to Basenotes, each and every one of us. ~ TwoRoads
