The $1,000 Pink Bra
This is an interesting read. HERE. A rather sordid and depressing story about a man selling items purported to be previously owned by movie stars on eBay and really making some serious coin who is being accused of buying these items on the cheap from eBay sellers, then turning around and saying it was owned by a celebrity. A pink bra given as one example was purchased for $20 and re-sold as belonging to Jayne Mansfield to the tune of $1,000. Should be interesting to see how this plays out. If this guy is selling average vintage for a mark-up like that just by calling it a movie star's, I've been going about this the wrong way (I jest, I jest!). Anyway, its interesting.
