Michael Jackson has finally been forced to put a bunch of his belongings from his Neverland ranch up for auction to pay off some of his creditors. Although it’s all rather sad, the auction catalog is worth a look.
Here are a few of my favorite things. If I had a few extra thousand dollars hidden in my sparkly sock drawer, I might pick up one of these specialty items:
This might be nice in my living room. It would go nicely with my ermine Corgi coverlet. Also, humbleness is a good quality to immortalize, especially in these troubled times.
Now this is both economical (great gas mileage!) AND inspirational (what mature adult doesn’t fantasize about being Peter Pan while driving around the golf course?). A sound investment any way you look at it.
I like that E.T. is in the same pantheon as Lincoln. And of course Michael himself.
There is something for a variety of budgets in this auction. There’s a rhinestone crown brooch for an estimated $80-100, a fire engine tea kettle for $100-200, and of course a Snow White and the Seven Dwarves figure set in a glass case for $1,000-1,500. Perfect for the little boy in everyone’s life!
