Barrymore Sale Fails To Draw Bids
Nov. 24, 1999
SAN FRANCISCO (AP) _ A 10-day online auction of Drew Barrymore's childhood keepsakes by her mother has failed to draw even the minimum bids as it nears a close.
None of the Barrymore items listed on the San Francisco-based Gavelnet.com Web site had received bids matching the minimum asking price Tuesday _ not the actress' baby clothes, offered at $425, and certainly not the red cowboy hat she wore in the movie ``E.T. The Extraterrestrial,'' with a minimum price of $45,900.
Even a copy of Ms. Barrymore's ``Bad Girls'' script, complete with her lipstick imprint on the cover, failed to draw the minimum bid of $200.
Her mother, Jaid Barrymore, put the items up for auction on Nov. 15, saying she wanted to share some magic with Drew's fans.
The actress has declined to comment.
