Thousands of people use a Bloomberg terminal every day to do their jobs. It’s one of the most useful machines in the world, and the workhorse of the financial industry, with up-to-the-second data and news from around the world.

The terminal, which costs more than $20,000 a year, has some extremely handy functions, such as stock quotes, financial analysis, and an instant messenger that some people could not do without.

But there’s another, lesser-known function – aptly named POSH – that allows Bloomberg users to list anything they want to flip for some cash.

We went through the listings to find the most opulent and ridiculous items and services for sale right now. Here are (just a few) of our favorites.


An Italian castle

Price: €16,500,000

For the low price of roughly $19 million, this Calabrian castle can be your new home – or, you know, your second, third, etc.

This “medieval castle in the mountains” has a pool, an olive orchard, a vineyard, views of the sea, and even a working dairy with 30 cows on 100 acres of land.

Price got you down? Don’t worry – the posting says it’s a “practical family get away.”

Price: $100,000

Need some new decor for your home? The Bloomberg terminal has you covered. This 1962 Picasso is from a set of 50 similar paintings. This particular one is dedicated “pour Ynes Picasso.”

Price: £109,995

According to Business Insider’s in-house Ferrari expert, Matthew DeBord, this might be a pretty good deal.

The starting price of the California T, the company’s “entry-level” car, is $198,000. This 2012 model, in red, has 7,600 miles under its hood and is going for just about $145,000 at today’s exchange rate.

Price: £10,000

Even London bankers are infatuated with the mysterious artist’s work. For about $13,100 (or the nearest offer) you can have a supposedly original, 70-by-50-centimeter Banksy CND soldiers unsigned screen print.


Lehman Brothers souvenirs

Price: £1,800

There’s already a sizable chunk of leftovers from the defunct investment bank’s insolvency a decade ago sitting on eBay. But if paperweights won’t cut it for you, and you have a spare $2,400 laying around, a 15-by-2-centimeter “Flow Credit Trading” sign from the former Lehman Brothers office can be yours.


A 1966 Playboy cover

Price: £1,000

This collectible cover from a 1966 issue of Playboy popped up this week after Hugh Hefner’s death. The seller, based in London, says the 25-inch print is No. 2 of 100 and comes with a certificate of authenticity.


A Montblanc pen

Price: £275

This Montblanc Meisterstruck LeGrand roller-ball pen is brand new, the seller says, and is a 100-quid discount off the retail price. Sounds like a steal to us!


A Louis Vuitton x Supreme wallet

Supreme New York

Price: $1,750

If these two brands weren’t expensive enough on their own, you can buy this sold-out collaboration to carry any change you (might) have after shelling out almost $2,000 for a wallet.


A Lego Millennium Falcon

Price: Undisclosed

The newest “Star Wars” Lego ship has 7,500 pieces and is sold out almost everywhere. The company website says it’s “coming soon” for $800 and is limited to one per customer. There were multiple listings for this item – it must be a hot desk decoration on Wall Street.


A Tiffany princess-cut diamond eternity ring

Price: £3,990

We don’t want to speculate about why this person had no more use for a diamond engagement ring, but this size 5.5 ring is selling inside the terminal for about $100 less than retail price.
