Authentic Vampire Killing Kit Sells for 15k?!?! [WANT]

Okay, hold on. Everybody HOLD ON.

Please tell me I'm not the only person experiencing a prime geekgasm right now.

This past weekend in Natchez, Mississippi, this set made circa 1800 sold for $14,850 in the Jimmy Pippen estate sale. Plenty of period furniture, accessories and art were sold, but a VAMPIRE KILLING kit clearly out-badasses any other item that could have possibly been up for grabs.

In the set are "stakes, mirrors, gun w/ silver bullets (True Blood gets 5 points!), crosses, a bible, holy water, candles and garlic." 200 year old garlic?! Yes, please!

I literally don't know if I've ever seen anything this cool. My 12 year old self who at one point owned every piece of Buffy merchandise in existence is jumping around and hitting things right now.

Guess what I'm seeking out and buying if I'm ever filthy rich?

If you click around the net you can probably still find the one that went up for auction at Sotheby's a while back.

It was less comprehensive than this, but also authentic and also gorgeous.

I hate rich people and all the awesome stuff they don't even know they should be spending their money on. Sigh.

this is truly the most awesome thing ever.

and yeah, it sucks we didn't get to geek out together about Buffy during Redemption Falls. I'm seriously obsessed, still.
