Creepy (and Exploitive) Kurt Cobain Souvenirs for Sale
Kurt Cobain’s last earthly address was 171 Lake Washington Boulevard East in Seattle. Right next the house is a tiny bit of green space called Viretta Park which sports a couple of benches. From the moment he died, that park and those benches became a bucket list destination for hardcore Nirvana fans.
Many visitors took the opportunity to scrawl messages over on the wood slats of those benches.
The original slats became so marked and scratched up that they had to be replaced in 2008. And rather than ship then to a landfill, they’re being sold.
Hamilton’s Antique & Estate Auctions in charge of everything. The description reads:
As I write this, the bidding is up to $230. Fill yer boots.
