Holiday special: Bernie’s slippers, Steinway and diamonds

For those looking for something weirdly different to put under the tree this Christmas, how about a pair of Bernie Madoff slippers. Or maybe you would prefer a 1917 grand piano once owned by the scam artist himself.

Velveteen slippers, a Steinway and Sons piano and a 10.5 carat ladies diamond ring are among the Madoff stuff that will be sold by the U.S. Marshals Service next month. Proceeds go to his victims.

If you were holding out for one of Bernie’s homes, it’s too late. They’ve all been sold.

Here’s more on next month’s auction from the New York Post.
