John from the OrganizingLA blog clued us in to a pair of celebrity estate sales that are coming up. As we saw in the case of Tori Spelling's sale these types of events can draw a lot of attention.
First up, hockey legend Wayne Gretzky and his wife Janet Jones Gretzky, who recently sold their Lake Sherwood home, are selling off autographed jerseys, home furnishings, off-road vehicles, signed bottles of the new Wayne Gretzky Estate Wines and other personal items and donating some of the proceeds to the new baseball stadium at Westlake Village Oaks Christian School. The sale takes place on October 27.
A far more lavish affair is the "$1,000,0000.00 Garage Sale" of Sharon and Ozzy Osborne being held at Julien's Auction House on November 30 and December 1. This sale includes more than 600 lots of memorabilia, jewelry, paintings, and furniture from their recently sold home in Beverly Hills, their Malibu home and their British mansion in Buckinghamshire. The lot includes the couple's Louis XVI-style master bedroom set, Ozzy's sunglasses, the ATV Ozzy was riding when he had a serious accident in 2003, costumes and "experience" lots that including being backstage at an Ozzy concert or an on-set visit with Sharon Osbourne while she is judging the TV show America's Got Talent. A portion of the proceeds will benefit The Sharon Osbourne Colon Cancer Program at the Samuel Oschin Comprehensive Cancer Institute at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center.
