Here’s an interesting auction item on New Zealand site TradeMe.co.nz; two captured ghosts.
The seller, melvin_s has 98.4% positive feedback on the auction site, put the two captured ghosts up with a reserve price of $1.00.
They sold for $2,830.00 NZD.
The spirits are said to have been trapped by an exorsist from a spiritualist church. One if a man called Les Graham who died in the haunted house in 1920.
The other spirit is said to have been summoned when Melvin and partner tried their hands at a Oujia Board. They suggest it is a little girl who likes to turn lights off – a spirit that will get more powerful over time.
Melvin told bidders that to revive either spirit, the water must be poured into a dish and left to evaporate in the house.
In Pure Spirit
Do you think $3,000 NZ dollars (about £1,400) is too much or too little to pay for these bottles which may contain ghosts?
Was Melvin clever in putting the two bottles up for auction – a ploy to make money or did he really just want rid of them?
