The $190 canteen, the $90 toaster and the $440 cosmetics case were anything but castoffs to Barbra Streisand's followers.
"There were things that were affordable for the average fan," Howard Zellman, a spokesman for A.N. Abell Auction Co., said after Sunday's auction of the singer's trinkets. "We had a very excited fan who purchased a waffle iron for $35."Other items snapped up at the Commerce, Calif., sale included a 17-foot floral sectional sofa, which sold for $1,100, a green-dyed mink vest, which went for $495, and a hot fudge maker that brought in $99.
Streisand put the items up for auction after clearing them out of the houses she donated to the Santa Monica Mountains Conservancy earlier this year.
