Last week a plumber from Nelson put a single-use Pak'nSave plastic bag up on Trade Me. 47 bids later, the auction closed and he managed to sell it for $52 bucks.
Seller Nairn Wilson, 18, told Stuff he was "definitely surprised and pretty excited" by the response his auction got - and that he'd rushed out to buy a gold frame from K-Mart for the bag, along with bubble wrap to post it in.
Trade Me's Millie Silvester told Newshub the sale was "topical and they're having a bit of fun with something that all of New Zealand is talking about".
