LawFuel.com – A celebrity auctioneer will auction celebrity Whitney Houston’s items following her early death on February 11.
Among the items to be auctioned by Darren Julien will be the dress she wore in “The Bodyguard” as well as items to be auctioned from such movie greats as Charlie Chaplin and Clark Gable.
It appears that dead celebrities have become a source of ‘collectibles investment’ for those seeking unusual but valuable investment items.
“It proves a point that these items, they’re an investment,” Mr. Julien said. “You buy items just like a stock. Buy at the right time and sell at the right time, and they just increase in value.”
The singer’s floor-length black dress from “The Bodyguard” is valued at $1,000 but likely will collect substantially more at auction.
Houston fans and other collectors can bid online, by phone or in person during the Hollywood Legends auction on March 31 and April 1. Lots will be shown during a free public exhibition beginning March 19 at Julien’s Auctions in Beverly Hills, Calif.
