Stuck for a nostalgic present to get your parents this Christmas?
We all saw the jokes about the goldmines we had sitting under our kitchen sinks in the form of 500 plastic bags, but now people really are trying to turn their bags into cash!
Sellers on eBay have started to sell old plastic bags as ‘collectors items’, with bids starting at 0.01p and ‘Buy it Now’ prices reaching £1000. The descriptions for the listings are pretty funny too.
‘Plastic carrier bag, white, Tesco branded, one careful owner, only used once, brought it on 19th Oct 15, excellent condition for its age.’
‘Grab a piece of history- from the good old days when you didn’t have to get a 5p thick plastic bag or get your kids to carry the shopping. Handles are still intact’
