Bernie Madoff’s stuff sold at auction yesterday. It is my understanding that the Feds hoped to come up with about $450,000.00 to help the victims of his financial scam, and no entity was more surprised at the final score of over $900,000, than the Feds themselves. There was a baseball type jacket they hoped to sell for $720.00 which actually went for $14,500.00.
None of this is lost on me. I have to do something to make my name famous so I can sell some of this stuff in my house. Forget the yard sale fetch of a couple of hundred bucks…I want to be able to hand off this Mardi Gras gaudy umbrella in exchange for a couple of hundred bucks by itself! I mean, it’s black and gold. The Saints are still undefeated this season. I paid about $4.50 for it during a rain storm in New Orleans a couple of months ago. Going once, going twice, SOLD for $725.00!
Just wait until you see what else I have!
