Katie Holmes, Lindsay Lohan, Duchess Camilla Shop at eBayJune 5, 2009 at 5:30 am | Posted in Celebrities | 1 Comment
Prince Charles’ wife shops at eBay. According to the Daily Record, “Charles has revealed that his wife, Camilla, the Duchess of Cornwall, is a frequent buyer of knick-knacks from the site…. Camilla’s spokesman said she wouldn’t be shopping under her own name or official title, but Jeff Kroll, one of the founders of eBay, is delighted the company has been linked with the Royal Family. He said: ‘There is a rather famous person who told me recently that his wife buys things on eBay, and that would be the Prince of Wales.’ Camilla is said to snap up bargains online for her son and daughter from her first marriage, Tom and Laura, but has doubtless made a few purchases for herself and her husband.”
Also: “Noel and Liam Gallagher are regular users of the site.” You know you always loved Oasis.
And: “Lindsay Lohan loves surfing the web for unusual clothes and has a sunglasses habit that she feeds with regular bargain buys from eBay…. Tom Cruise’s wife Katie Holmes has solved the problem of what to buy by hunting down rare edition books on the site, while Jennifer Garner bought an antique barber’s chair for her husband, Ben Affleck.”
Truth be told, eBay isn’t our favorite scavenging venue, because the whole notion of having to outbid others for merchandise makes us want to run away screaming. But hey, it’s better than retail. And if it’s good enough for Jennifer Garner….
