Got a Confession to Make? Rare Catholic Confessional for Sale in Rome
You don't have to go to Vatican City in Rome, Italy to buy a Catholic confessional-- this one is available in Rome, New York! And it can be yours for just $15,000.
I found this rather unusual item on eBay. Here's what the seller says about it:
This spectacular confessional is from Italy and it dates from the early 1900's and has two sinner sides and the priest in the middle. It is made from solid oak finished to a warm medium color. It is easy to transport and install since it breaks down into manageable pieces. So, the question is- what would you do if you had a "confessional"?
I gotta confess: Aside from a church proprietor, I don't know who would be in the market for this. Maybe it can be repurposed into a bar? Or is that a sin? Actually, that sounds like the very definition of a sin. Maybe don't do that.
Here's another thing I'll confess that will probably send me straight to hell: I find a lot of Catholic iconography sorta creepy. I was raised a Catholic, and even went to Sunday school for a year, but... it didn't take. As soon as I was given the option to not do that, I did. So this confessional? I wouldn't want anything to do with it.
But hey, that's just me. If you're in the market for a very niche type of furniture, or maybe want to get some juicy gossip out of your friends and family, maybe this confessional is for you.
