Former Toronto mayor Mel Lastman's bougie belongings are now up for sale at auction
If you've ever wanted to own the personal property of a local Toronto celeb and/or have a particular fascination with the city's former mayor Mel Lastman, you're in luck, as the estate of the late figure — who also founded Bad Boy furniture — is now up for sale at auction.
Public online bidding has already begun for more than 120 items belonging to the leader and his family, who clearly had a propensity for classically swanky furnishings.
Murano glass sculptures, porcelain figurines and a custom feather sofa are among the unique pieces available, all of a very specific taste befitting of the wealthy octogenarian that once owned them.
Though the affects up for grabs from Lastman's luxury Deer Park condo appear quite expensive, some of the bids thus far are pretty low, with many around the $11 mark.
The collection ranges from current bids of $3 on some glass trinket boxes to $90 for a fancy-looking inlaid Louis XV-style commode cabinet to the biggest splurge, $1,923 for a sterling silver flatware set that comes in a cushy velvet-lined box that may or may not be haunted.
While this sale might be reserved for those who are fans of high-endor antique items, things like this interesting collection of men's accessories, some gaudy (but cheap) silver plated wine goblets, a giant natural quartz crystal and a vintage lighter collection are objectively pretty cool.
Also, did we mention, cool-ass rugs?
While the auction ends today, extended bidding in the case of late bids mean it could extend longer.
