Anyone who wants the thrill of scuffling around the house in the slippers of a former French President should head directly to famed auction house Hotel Drouot this week.
On Tuesday, January 29 at 2:30 pm Drouot will be auctioning the clothing and personal effects of late French President François Mittérand. Shoes, slippers, hats, watches, business suits -- all are up for grabs, at a price. Also to be included are gifts that Mittérand received as head of state, such as sets of porcelain, a souvenir from Castro, a crocodile bag or two.
As much as the items might be of interest to curiosity-seekers, the crowd in attendance could be an equally fascinating star-studded group of mittérandistes, history buffs, and more.
The sale is expected to fetch between 60,000 and 90,000 euros. Proceeds will go to the Fondation France Libertés. Auction preview is Monday from 10 am to 6 pm.
Address: Espace Tajan, Hotel Drouot, 9 rue Drouot in the 9e arrondissement.
