PART 1 of 3

I’m surprised no one has really posted detailed photos for “The Art of Laika” exhibit that was currently showcased at the Heritage Auction building in Beverly Hills.  It lasted a few days before the auction but now all the pieces are gone and went to their new homes. I’m grateful to have caught it before it ended. This gallery was so awe-inducing, I had to be at the exhibit for a good three hours just to take it all in. Seeing images or looking in a book does NOT do any of these pieces justice. You must see these beautiful pieces in person to really take in the creativity, dedication and craft each one of these props possess. Every item is a work of art. The whole show was quite magical and witnessing the live auction was very exciting. Enjoy these photos!

I may or may not have won something from this photo set.

@GonewiththeWind dress up for auction April 18 #heritageauction #gonewiththewind

A dress that Vivien Leigh wore in her Oscar-winning role as Scarlett O'Hara in the cinema classic “Gone with the Wind” is coming up for auction next month.

Heritage Auction said Thursday the blue-gray ribbed cotton dress with black details could fetch more than $100,000 when it goes on the block April 18.

Beatles’ (Hair) for Sale

If you’re a Fab fan with an extra 15,000 smackers burning a hole in your pocket, then Heritage Auctions has a deal for you.

The Dallas-based auction house is offering what it calls a “significant lock” of John Lennon’s hair that it claims was snipped as the Beatle filmed “How I Won the War" in 1966. As of Feb. 9, the online bidding for this “rare and important opportunity” stood at $12,000, which is actually $15,000 with the so-called “buyer’s premium” tacked on.

The minimum next bid is $13,000 ($16,250).

“The overall length of the lock is approximately 4 (inches) and likely contains hundreds of strands,” reads an online description.

“To the best of our knowledge, this is the largest lock of Lennon’s hair ever sold at auction … and has been in the collection of the original owner for all these nearly 50 years.”

Is it legit? Probably. Is it pricey? You bet. Are you interested? Don’t tell anyone.

It’s a silent auction.

Bids are due Feb. 20.
