Clear Plastic Bag With Designer Stamp Sells For $590
DAVID GREENE, HOST:
Good morning. I'm David Greene. Last fall, a designer bag was featured at a fashion show. I think the best way to describe it may be grocery store chic.
No, forget chic. It's a bag you honestly might grab from the recycling pile and take to the supermarket. It is a clear, plastic bag. That's it. But it says Celine Paris on it, which I guess makes it designer and somehow makes it worth $590, the asking price right now at a pop-up in Seattle. Please, feel free. It's MORNING EDITION.
