Up for sale again – Town sold on eBay (twice!)
Bridgeville in California is up for sale again having twice been sold on eBay in the past. The hamlet of eight houses, a school, postoffice and cafe is on the market after the current owner committed suicide last November.
The town was sold the first time on eBay in April 2006, for $700k, to Bruce Krall when the high bidder turned out to be a non-paying bidder. He then sold it on eBay to Daniel La Paille for $1.25 million in August 2006. Paille had started restoration work on some of the buildings and now the residents are looking for a new owner to complete the work.
