Dolly Parton Selling Contents of Dollywood Apartment on eBay
Apparently, even the world's biggest country superstars use eBay! Dolly Parton is now auctioning off the entire contents of her former Dollywood apartment bedroom suite. Parton originally listed the bed for sale, which prompted more interest from avid fans and collectors.
According to the Boot, the singer has decided to auction off the whole shebang, so start bidding! Of course, the proceeds from the auction will benefit a worthwhile cause, one that is personally important to Parton. The auction will benefit the Dr. Robert Thomas Foundation. The good doc personally delivered Parton and other children in her Tennessee hometown, and the foundation helps to provide improved health care services in Sevier County, Tenn.
"I first offered up my bed and lots of folks kept asking, 'Got anything else?'," said the singer about the impetus for this new auction. "Since it's for such a good cause, the Dr. Thomas Foundation, that's so near and dear to my heart, I started digging through stuff and thought, 'Why not just auction off the whole bedroom suite?'"
What a great idea, Dolly! Photos of the available boudoir items are viewable here.
