In stressful times, humour helps - and New South Wales auction house Treasure Island Auctions is contributing some welcome relief at its next fine arts and general auction on 21 March, with a large offering of 'Celebrity Loo Paper' - from Elvis Poosley to Vladimir Pootin and William Shatner....
West Gosford, NSW Australia - Treasure Island Auctions, the Central Coast's premier auction house, usually specialises in unique antiques, jewellery, fine art, collectibles, estate sales, tools, parts and general goods -- but today it announces an extra special auction of am item that's sought-after across Australia -- Celebrity Sized Toilet Paper.
Auction organiser "Blackbeard" says people plan to attend from as far as a three-hour drive away, as well as Sydney, Newcastle and the local community.
"Absentee bidding is welcome, and bidders who can't make it personally can bid by phoning our office and placing bids," Blackbeard says.
"Currently, Australians have been emergency panic buying toilet paper because of the coronavirus pandemic - retail outlets are out of stock, and people are being arrested in shops fighting over the few rolls available. We have the treasure you need!
"This auction was conceived after one of our humorous clients gave us a box of (soft) commercial sized rolls of 2ply tissue (16 rolls in all) measuring 22cm across. We decided to make these into celebrity sized toilet rolls - because celebrities have to endure a lot of crap in life, don't they?"
Each roll has a different celebrity attached to it, and each will be auctioned individually – for example, Elvis Poosley Harry Potty, Vladimir Pootin, Donald Trumpeter, William Shatner and more, just for fun.
The auction will take place on 21 March 2020 at the Central Coast auction house TREASURE ISLAND AUCTIONS – West Gosford, NSW, Australia.
Preview of these and all the other treasure is available from 8am same day, or check the website auctions page on the Friday afternoon before the auction for details and pictures of all lots.
