Regular folks have yard sales, the rich have auctions


Former Guns N' Roses guitarist Slash has cleaned out his basement and is auctioning off close to 200 pieces of cuh-rap, including...

 Antique Tibetan "yoga mats."

 Ralph Lauren skull pillows, gifts from Ozzy and Sharon Osbourne.

 Two Vic-whore-ian lamps.

 A resin bones and glass coffee table, a gift from Charlie Sheen.

Cobra-bilia.  
"I love snakes, and I have had many over the years," Slash said.  "There was 
a time when I was breeding them. I still have a very large anaconda." 

Indeed.

sherri - Yup. Sheen gave it to him 10 years ago. I wonder what the occasion was?

Those skeleton yoga mats would bring me the opposite of inner peace.

I guess I better get my bidding number.

Just goes to show - money does NOT buy taste.

I kinda like the yoga mats as art. Everything else can die a murderous death. Especially those lamps.

Those lamp shades were unique! My son had seen it while exploring your blog and he is asking me to purchase it for him. Is online orders available?

I always give liquor as gifts to avoid situations like this.

It's like he decorated in 7th grade and never looked back.

@David, my birthday is May 23, and I like vodka.

Hmmm.

Does this mean he is paying people the highest bid to take the stuff out of his life?

I can honestly say I'm not devastated I won't be bidding on any of these. Nicolex

As scary as it looks, the coffee table really rocks.

Ha!
Oooh, full disclosure.
Nero pleads guilty to owning a pair of the ornate RL skull crest pillows...and to still digging them after several years.
Also, not minding the cobra candlesticks -- almost snagged a pair on Ebay a couple years back. 'The rest, well, meh.
The yoga mats are pretty cool -- could see them wall mounted or flanking a bed.
The Victorian lamps would likely only work for Anna Sui though.
And the skeleton table looks like it came from Design Toscano!
Cheers and happy bidding, Alcira

Gross !!! I honestly have come across better stuff dumpster diving...

Madam Pince said...

He's probably getting rid of this stuff to pacify his wife -- they recently reconciled after filing for divorce. I expect she'll be replacing this junk with some equally hideous high-priced JOOORY.
