Now here is one eBay auction we just couldn't pass up. To promote his new book in the States and to help create awareness and raise money for his city school food programs, Jamie Oliver is raffling off a date. Him, you, and lots of "proper" food cooked by the chef himself. All expenses are paid for travel and a week's stay in pricey London.
And here's the thing - Jamie's publicity company just hasn't made a great jump from England to the States, and this promotion has been way under-publicized. The auction is currently at just $34.50. (Dollars, not pounds!) Go - while you still can! No shipping and the auction ends in just two hours. More incredible eBay picks after the jump.
Don't forget that you can post your own kitchen and tabletop items for sale at The Kitchen's classifieds!
