From buying more than a year’s supply of frozen chicken to eating a delicious slice of pizza for $1.50, going to Costco isn’t just an errand, it’s an experience. And why wouldn’t it be with all the fun things you can buy in bulk? Who doesn’t want five pounds of spaghetti, or a liter of extra virgin olive oil?
But Costco sells more than just food – in fact, if you’re a member, there are a whole slew of things you can buy (in bulk, of course). And some of it…well, it’s downright weird. These are just a few of the weird things you didn’t know you can buy at Costco.
#1. A Four-Person Steam Sauna to Help You Unwind
Ever found yourself in a sauna thinking, “I wish I could have one of these at home, and I wish I could buy it somewhere that also sells bulk soda”? If so, this is the sauna for you.
#2. An Inflatable Boat
It may not be the yacht of your dreams, but this little boat will get you out on the water – and bonus, you can buy it while also getting a full summer stock of fruit juice to keep you quenched on the lake!
#3. An Entire Palette of Emergency Food
Hey, we’ve all got to restock our bomb shelter sometime. Your only trouble will be moving the palette to your bomb shelter.
#4. A Diamond Ring That Costs More Than a Ferrari
For only $420,000 (!), this ring could be yours! Plus you can get a sheet cake for the wedding right next door at the Costco Bakery.
#5. An Above-Ground Pool for Your Backyard
While Costco doesn’t sell in-ground pools (yet), you can get this above-ground wonder for your backyard. Now all you need to figure out is how to move it.
#6. A Coffin Hauntingly Titled, “The Mother Casket”
Costco sells pretty much everything, so it makes sense that it has you covered from cradle to grave (literally).
#7. A Wine Cellar That Holds Up to 600 Bottles
If you’re feeling depressed from thinking about Costco coffins, drown your sorrows by filling up this wine cellar that has enough to keep you stocked for….well, ever. And if you don’t have room in your car after buying 600 bottles of wine, Dolly can bring the wine cellar home for you.
#8. Package Trips to Disneyland
In addition to having amazing deals on cruise packages, Costco is considered one of the best places to buy a Disneyland travel package at a huge discount.
#9. Tires for Your Car or Truck

Think of it this way: if you’re driving to Disneyland, you can get your vacation package AND fresh tires for the drive, all in one convenient place.
#10. A Now-Famous 93” Teddy Bear
You probably thought this teddy bear was a joke when it went viral a few months ago, but it’s very real. In fact, it’s actually out of stock right now due to how quickly it sold out, but something tells us the bear will be back.
#11. Toilets, Including This High-Tech Smart Toilet
You may be laughing now, but when you experience its heated seats and nightlight at 4AM, you’ll know this is the best tech purchase you’ve ever made.
#12. Backyard Gazebos Fit for a Beach Resort
If you’re already buying an above-ground pool at Costco, you may as well add in a gazebo, too. Once it’s set up, you’ll never have to leave your backyard paradise again.
#13. A 4K Camera Drone to Record All Your Adventures
You may be thinking, “I don’t even have a 4K TV, so why do I need a 4K drone?” Don’t worry – Costco sells those, too.
#14. Real Tibetan Fur Rugs to Make Your Home Cabin-Chic
You probably knew you could buy home furnishings at Costco, but you might not have known that you can likely decorate a whole house in woodsy cabin style just with Costco furniture and decor. All you need now is the actual cabin.
#15. Luxury Massage Chairs to Help You Unwind
If you only spend $1.50 on a slice of pizza and a soda at Costco, that totally makes up for the $7,000 you spend on a massage chair there, right?
#16. Beer, Wine, & Liquor in Bulk

This isn’t available in every state (if your state allows alcohol sales only in liquor stores, you won’t find any alcoholic beverages at Costco), but if you’re lucky enough to be in a state where Costco sells alcohol, you can purchase alcohol even without a Costco membership. Because who doesn’t want six gallons of whiskey at once?
#17. A 72lb. Wheel of Cheese
Hey, no one’s going to judge you for buying this much cheese! But it will be awkward to try carrying this thing yourself, so make sure you have lifting help available.
#18. A Chicken Coop with a View
If you can buy bulk chicken feed at Costco, why not buy a coop there, too? Just don’t confuse the chicken coop section of Costco with the chicken food section.
#19. Chandeliers, Including This Crazy-Expensive Crystal One
You, too, can make your home look like it was once used as a shooting location for The Crown with this hand-cut crystal fixture. Just note that there’s some assembly required – let’s hope it’s not attaching the crystals themselves!
#20. A Victorian-Style Greenhouse
If you can buy a pool, gazebo, and even a chicken coop at Costco, why not buy a greenhouse there to complete your backyard by Costco? This one even offers an elite, Victorian theme to make your backyard the royal garden of your dreams.
#21. Pianos, Including a Digital Grand Piano
This one will go nicely underneath your crystal chandelier. If you’re wondering why you’ve never seen a floor model, just imagine a Costco employee having to listen to kids play it. All. Day. Long.
#22. Camping Gear, Like This Insane Mega Tent
Be the coolest scout troop leader around with this tent that sleeps six adults because it’s actually two large tents with a larger canopy tent that connects them. And while you’re picking up this bad boy, don’t forget to grab a 120 pack of Slim Jims for a trail snack.
#23. And Finally, Custom-Built Garages
Costco is selling everything in your house (and in your backyard!), so it shouldn’t be surprising that they’re selling garages, too. No word yet on whether Costco will start selling houses!
