Many people have grown weary of rehashing the 2013 MTV Video Music Awards. But if you are still re-playing the *NSync reunion, the twerking teddy bears and the time that Katy Perry met Richard Simmons on the Red Carpet and are looking to add a little verisimilitude to your historical reenactments, a Brooklyn bodega may have the perfect souvenir for you.

The Village Voice reports that one particularly enterprising shop — the Dubai Mini Mart on Dean Street, which is around the corner from Brooklyn’s Barclay’s Center, where the VMAs took place this year — is now selling a piece of the 2013 MTV VMAs Red Carpet on eBay. Since the Barclay’s Center is located in the heart of the borough, the Red Carpet had to be unrolled down streets filled with residences and retail establishments which had their business disrupted by the fans gathered to gawk at the attending celebs.

The winner of the auction would be able to take home the very same Red Carpet that Miley Cyrus, Macklemore, Ryan Lewis, Taylor Swift, One Direction, Robin Thicke and Justin Timberlake trod upon. The bidding starts at $500, but those who aren’t willing to take their chances can purchase the piece of history for the low low Buy It Now price of $5,000. There are currently no bids.
