Selling Apple Store Parts

Some guy is selling a stair case, allegedly from the Apple Store on 5th Avenue, New York.

From his description on eBay:

It’s from Apple Fifth Ave. in NYC. They have a huge spiral staircase you can see here:

They replaced it with a new one after a customer dropped a snapple bottle on it and cracked it. I picked it up before it could be thrown out over a year ago, figuring it’s a collectible.

When these are new, they cost 10K to buy from the German glass-makers. So, since it’s cracked I figure it’s worth at least $2500, considering the steps are all custom ordered.

You could use it as a coffee table on top of some cinder blocks, or just keep it for the sake of keeping it.

Unfortunately, I can’t deliver it. You’ll need to come pick it up in Brooklyn, NY, and I recommend you bring a car and a friend or two. It weighs about 250 lbs. It’s about 10 layers of very thick glass.

If you’re a collector of Apple memorabilia, you’ve got to have this. I know for a fact that only three of them exist outside of the retail stores’ circulation, and this is one of them. So, needless to say, it’s rare. I doubt it if you’ll ever see something like this again.

You can find this item on http://qurl.tk/59 . I wonder whether all of it is true and I also wonder whether the guy got fired after taking something from the Apple store that doesn’t belong to him.
