Customers definitely got the deal of a lifetime at the Banksy sale at Central Park in New York City.

Normally artwork from the English-based artist is around 20,000 euros each. However, he set up a stand in New York and sold his amazing pieces for $60. For most of the day, people simply just walked by without stopping or took a quick glance. However when afternoon hit, a few pieces sold. One lady bought two pieces for her kids but even bargained to have the price lowered even more and got a 50% discount. Another man bought four for home decorations. From the entire day the artist made $420.

The Banksy sale was only for one day, so whoever stopped to buy a piece was extremely lucky.
