Greatest. Auction. Ever.

Hot off the BBC News Desk:

Museum auctions celebrity socks

That’s right. You now have the opportunity to don the socks of the stars. In order to raise funds for the Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum, located in Nottinghamshire, England, its board of trustees has announced a celebrity socks auction scheduled for this Friday and Saturday.  Audrey Winkler, one of museum’s trustees, spent a year writing letters to celebrities worldwide and asking them to donate a pair of their socks.  Her hard work paid off – fifty-two socks (that’s twenty-six pairs for those doing the math) will be up for grabs at the auction.  The socks of Bond girl Gemma Arterton and tennis star Andy Murray are among those featured at the auction.  Though you are likely to pay much, much more for these socks than you would for our Rockin’ Stockings, it’s a once in a lifetime opportunity. How great would it feel to say, “I knocked that Bond girl’s socks off”?
