Oscar winner and half of folk-comedy duo Flight of the Conchords Bret McKenzie has been sold for $1660.

Well, at least a coffee date with the star has.

A Trade Me auction that closed last night offered the chance to sit down with McKenzie over a Fair Trade cuppa in Wellington, and a guitar autographed by him and comedy partner Jemaine Clement.

The proceeds will go towards Oxfam's push to promote Fair Trade and raise funds for its work with communities in the developing world.

McKenzie says buying Fair Trade products was a simple way of making the world a better place.

Coffee dates with others stars, including Sir Graham Henry and actor Shane Cortese, were also auctioned as part of Oxfam's Biggest Coffee Break campaign to support Fair Trade.
