Ginger Reeder, the vice president of corporate communications for Neiman Marcus, said that, yes, people really do buy these things. Most of them, anyway. The cars tend to sell out every year, she told. Otherwise, though, I’ve given up on guessing, exactly what will sell, and to whom. A suit of armor, for example, sold last year to a couple in Connecticut, who wanted it for their son, who traveled around to medieval fairs. I thought it would be a captain of industry, Reeder said.
Eight of the nine items on display will give some portions of their ticket price to charity.
