Rejoice, fashionistas! Your summer lewk can now include Fyre Festival accessories.

People are selling memorabilia from the failed Ja Rule-helmed music fest on eBay, and so far there have been enough meme-hungry buyers to clean them out. The infamous “destination festival” made headlines back in April when guests started tweeting photos of wet mattresses and sad sandwiches where they were promised their VIP cabanas and gourmet dining were supposed to be. If you were at home enjoying the hashtag from the comfort of your couch, though, a promotional hat might bring you more joy than it did its original owner.

Jezebel found quite a few items for sale this week, like a $300 hoodie:

This Fyre Festival-branded phone charger (they were “going to be given to guests” but never saw the light of day):

Three of this hat have sold for $35:

And a lightly used artist pass wristband:


And something tells us items will continue to pop up in the coming weeks as the story gains traction. Lower-priced keepsakes understandably seem to be getting the most bidding action, while some higher-priced items are still bidless.

At the time of publishing there are a few hats available—so jump on it, if you want.
