I really hope that some of her items do turn up in a museum, because she owns some astonishing stuff, like Charlie Chaplin's bowler hat, Laurel and Hardy's suits, dresses worn by Audrey Hepburn in My Fair Lady, that dress worn by Marilyn Monroe in The Seven Year Itch (you know the one...) and a pair of Dorothy's ruby slippers.
She also has the curtain-material playsuits worn by the Von Trapp Family Singers in The Sound Of Music. Joy. Actual joy.
You can download the catalogue online. Here are a few items I would buy for sentimental or pure greedy reasons if I had the funds. This is just a small smattering, because the catalogue is a whopping 319 pages long.
Thanks to Penny Dreadful Vintage for bringing this to my attention.
