Fab turned 1 today with a bang.The young startup has 5 million users and it acquired is 3rd startup, two-month-old Llustre.

It also boasted 1.8 million items sold to date, ranging in cost from $1 to $20,000.

Of those 1.8 million items, one in particular has produced stand-out sales.

Fab’s cofounder Bradford Shellhammer revealed his site’s best-selling item to date at Le Web London:

A vibrator.

We’re not sure why. The high vibrator sales could be part of Fab’s former self shining through? Before it pivoted to a flash sale site for design, Fab was a Groupon-like startup with deals for the gay community.
