In the market for statue of Napoleon? Elton has 2

It's a garage sale with attitude.

Elton John is doing a bit of house-clearing by putting paintings, chandeliers and leopard-skin print sofas up for sale later this month, auction house Sotheby's said Friday.

Sotheby's said more than 400 items from John's west London house were likely to raise more than $1.3 million when they're sold Sept. 30.

Items up for sale include a double bed with matching wardrobes designed by David Linley, nephew of Queen Elizabeth II; a bronze sculpture of Alexander the Great; a gilt-bronze and marble chandelier; and two busts of Napoleon.
