When I last visited Harrods in London, my husband and I spotted a ludicrous gold-plated serving tray in the shape of a sheep. It didn’t have a price tag, so we started playing a version of The Price is Right, trying to guess how much the tray cost.
By the time I wagered $10,000, a sales associate interrupted to ask if we actually wanted to buy it. (We slunk away in embarrassment.)
Recently, I tried to find the tray online — I never DID find out how much it cost — and had no luck. But during my Harrods.com adventure, I unearthed a slew of new ridiculous items fit for the heiress deep inside all of us. Without further adieu: Here are the 5 craziest things money can possibly buy.
If you’re going to drink that K-Cup battery acid, at least make sure you’re sipping from this $751 coffee cup. (Spoon IS included, whew!)
What do you call a bracelet that’s too small for your wrist? An $18,982 “palm cuff.” It’s a luxurious alternative to brass knuckles — but fair warning, it’ll snag your cashmere mittens.
Get ready for the biggest bar tab of your life — this Macallan set costs more than $15,000. (Don’t bother asking what year it is — they don’t tell you.)
The good news? This alligator bag is on sale! The bad news? It’s still $31,890. (Hey, it was originally $42,520.)
Please note that the TSA won’t care if you paid $5,695 for your stink juice — if it’s over 3.4 ounces, it’s going in the trash.
