Barbra Streisand used to buy a lot of stuff. I know this, because a friend of a friend that owns an antique shop in San Diego told me of the few times she came in and bought many items (and always argued about the price and tried to bargain).
Now she's selling some of the stuff she has. So, if you want a couch to lounge on, that she may have...now is your chance.
In October, she's going to auction over 400 personal items to benefit her charity. The 67-year-old star said that others should enjoy it, and it did her no good in storage.
She is also selling costumes from her films, including a dress from "Funny Lady" a robe from "The Way We Were" and several outfits from "Meet the Fockers" a movie I still haven't seen, because it looked so unfunny (my sister tells me it was great).
Furniture, books, paintings, and vintage collectibles will also be up for bid at Julien's Auctions (which tried to bring us that Michael Jackson auction that got cancelled a few weeks before his death). It starts on October 17 in Beverly Hills, with the proceeds helping the Streisand Foundation, which supports women's, children's, environmental and political causes.
The Hard Rock Cafe in New York City's Time Square is going to auction off the glittery glove Michael Jackson wore when he unveiled his moonwalk on TV in 1983 (why not the shoes?)
That starts November 21, look for "Music Icons" if you're interested.
I'm guessing it'll sell for over $25,000.
