She claims the ghosts, one of an old man and the other a young girl, were removed from his house by a spiritualist and are now captured in vials of holy water.
Avie Woodbury, who signs herself as Melvin S from Christchurch, says on the www.trademe.co.nz website that the spirits created havoc in her house before the exorcism, switching lights on and off, turning an electric kettle on, and terrifying the dog.
"One spirit we believe is a man by the name of Les Graham, managed to track down a photo," she said on the website. "He died in the house in the 1920s.
"The other spirit came from when me and my partner stupidly did a Ouija board."
The second spirit is a little girl "who likes to move things", she said.
"Exorcist says she is very strong and if left will get stronger.
"We have had no activity since they were bottled on July 15, 2009, so I believe they are in the bottles."
She said the holy water has changed from clear to a blue colour since the spirits were bottled and "sort of puts them to sleep".
"To revive the spirit, I have been told that you pour into a little dish and let it evaporate into your house.
"I just want to get rid of them as they scare me. But someone might like these to play with."...
"The sale has turned into one of the auction website's most popular attractions, drawing more than 70,000 hits so far.
It has also provoked strong feelings from viewers, with one describing him as "absolutely sick" for selling someone's family members.
Another warned her that she risked eternal damnation.
...One prospective buyer asks what would happen if he poured the contents into a shot glass and drank them.
"I don't know but you might have friends for life," she replied. "Multiple personalities might haunt you." One prospective buyer asks what would happen if he poured the contents into a shot glass and drank them.

Another viewer wants to know if the "beverages" contain any dangerous additives.
But the most sardonic comment comes from the person who says: "I have two spirits in bottles at home.
"I think they are called Jim Beam and the other is Johnny Walker."
