Streisand plans auction

August 06, 2009|Associated Press

Want to lounge in a wicker chair from Barbra Streisand's sun room? Perhaps wear one of her designer dresses or tinkle the keys of her baby grand piano?

Your chance is coming in October, when Streisand will auction more than 400 personal items to benefit her charity.

"What good does it do in storage?" the 67-year-old entertainer asked. "Let someone else enjoy it. These things, they're not forever. We pass them on and reap the benefits for something important."

A collector throughout her career, Streisand is 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." Books, designer furniture, paintings and vintage collectibles will also be up for bid at the Julien's Auctions event Oct. 17-18 in Beverly Hills. The proceeds will go to the Streisand Foundation, which supports women's, children's, environmental and political causes.
