I always wanted to be part of an auction but it never worked out for me. Yeah, I talk fast enough to be the auctioneer but I'd really prefer to be on the buying side of things. There is only one problem, I don't have the kind of dough laying around to buy the things I would want.

Believe it or not I have expensive taste when it comes to collectibles, I am a fancy b---.. I love the idea of purchasing rare photos of Hollywood's icons or old Presidential documents. If you are anything like me there is an auction going on in Connecticut right now that will be right up your alley.

CT Auction Features Rare Items from JFK, Einstein and Monroe

According to the Wilton Bulletin, the "University Archives' "Rare Signed Manuscripts, Books, Photos, and Relics" auction" is underway in Connecticut. There are hundreds of rare and historic items hitting the block. These are the kind of auction items that make it easy to romanticize our country. From JFK to Marilyn Monroe, this auction has it all. Here are 5 of my favorites. 

NOTE: The internet bidding has reportedly begun for some items and the rest will be auctioned on Feb. 21 at 10:30 a.m.

There are so many good auction items like a Lyndon Johnson Vietnam document, Jacqueline Kennedy's blouse material and a Lee Harvey Oswald signed letter. It is one piece of fascinating history after another. I spent hours of my life on the UA website shopping for things I cannot afford. I actually took that back, there were some items that were truly in my financial wheelhouse and that was a huge surprise to me.

All of the Items up for auction can be viewed on the University Archives website and there are hundreds to see. The site makes clear that worldwide shipping options are available.
