The end of July is here, and we’ve compiled the most jaw dropping purchases people made this past month.
Some are even crazier than the outrageous buys people made in June.
Items on our July list range from a golden yacht to pricey bottle of white wine to a piece of art that’s visible from space.
The largest vase ever sold
Standing taller than 6 feet, the world's largest vase was sold at Skinner's auction house in Massachusetts earlier this month for for $17,290.
Made in the late 19th century for the Indian Maharajah who reportedly paid approximately $5,700 for the piece, it is adorned with floral designs by the skilled artist Florence Lewis.
The vase was exhibited in Chicago's World Fair in 1893 and is currently at New York's Museum of Science and Industry.
Most expensive bottle of white wine ever sold
French restauranteur Christian Vanneque forked over $117,000 for a bottle of white wine so that he could display it in a bulletproof case in his restaurant.
The new owner of the 1811 Chateau d'Yquem said he would uncork the bottle in 2017 to celebrate the 50th anniversary of his career at the eatery.
Most expensive yacht ever
An anonymous Malaysian businessman paid a whopping $4.8 billion for a yacht plated in gold and other precious metals.
The creation of Stuart Hughes, the boat took three years to complete.
Although not confirmed, the boat, named the History Supreme, is suspected to have been purchased by Robert Kuok, the richest man in Malaysia with a net worth of $12.5 billion.
An insanely large name tag that can be seen from space
Abu Dhabi ruler Sheikh Hamad Bin Hamdan Al Nahyan paid millions of dollars to write his name on his own private island, Al Futaisi.
Carved in letters more than half a mile high and 1.9 miles wide, 'Hamad' can be seen from space. The first two letters are flooded with water so that the wealthy sheikh can play on them with his yacht.
The vases vastly exceeded their value of $1.6 million
Hotel Mogul Steve Wynn bought four Chinese vases for a record-breaking $12.8 million at a Christie's auction earlier this month.
Dating back to the Jianqing period (1796-1821), Wynn paid much more than the expected $1.6 million for the pieces to be added to his Macau property.
The rare manuscript went for triple the expected price
Jane Austen's unfinished work was sold at Sotheby's Auction House for $1.6 million, an amount tripling the estimated $322,000 to $483,000 it was expected to sell for.
The author's manuscript is regarded as highly valuable since so few exists after her death in 1817. It is described by a Sotheby's representative as 'very much a working draft' with edited and crossed out texts.
This picture sold for 34 times its expected price
A black and white picture of the Beatles during their first U.S. concert was sold for $68,000 at a Christie's auction in New York City.
The picture was taken by Mike Mitchell when he was only 18 years old at the band's first U.S. concert at the Washington Coliseum.
The photo was expected to sell for $2,000 to $3,000.
Mr. Robinson's knowledge of Texas laws paid off
A Texas man managed to pay $16 for a property worth around $300,000 in Flower Mound by being familiar with a Texas statute that would legally give him ownership of the property.
The Texas statute allows property to be claimed if someone has been publicly living in it without the official owners.
Kenneth Robinson had been living in the property's living room and filed paperwork through a local courthouse for $16. If he remains in the home for the next three years, he can legally ask for the property title.
