Own a piece of 'Lost' this weekend [Updated]
More than 1,000 props, costumes and set pieces from the ABC hit series will be auctioned this weekend in Santa Monica. That means you could own Kate's toy plane, Hurley's winning lottery ticket, Locke's Master Bowie hunting knife, and even the Dharma van. Need more incentive? How about Sawyer's letter, Charlie's "DS" ring and guitar, Mr. Eko's club, The Hatch, the Swan Station computer, Desmond's fail-safe key, the Virgin Mary statue, Faraday's journal, Dharma-branded food and supplies, and Hurley's Camaro?
If you can't place your bids in person, don't worry. Worldwide bids will be accepted via mail, phone or fax as well as live on the Internet at www.profilesinhistory.com or www.liveauctioneers.com.
Profiles in History, the world's largest auctioneer of Hollywood memorabilia, is holding the live auction in partnership with ABC Studios at Barker Hanger in the Santa Monica Airport. It begins at 1 p.m. Saturday and Sunday.
But Lostie hearts take notice: There's more than bidding going on at the two-day event. Barker Hanger is being transformed to celebrate the series. If you dress up like one of the characters, you'll be eligible to win the complete collection DVD set. And there will be plenty of merchandise for purchase as well. Not to mention food trucks! We know there weren't any food trucks on the island, but go with it.
