A pair of red, Naughty Monkey Double-Dare pumps allegedly worn by Sarah Palin during her stump for vice-president sold on an EBay auction for $2,025. They were not part of the Palin’s campaign clothing windfall currently languishing in trashbags at RNC headquarters, according to the seller, who claims to Gov GILF’s niece. Rather Alaska’s Frost Lady bought them herself at a store in Juneau; the peep-toe pumps retail for as much as $89.99 on Amazon.
Gift with purchase: A collection of autographed pictures and a Sharpie used by Palin. As part of the purchase agreement, the former vice-presidential candidate is supposed to autograph the footwear.
Says Modi Frank–who runs Giving Engine, which manages auctions for non-profits and schools using EBay as a platform:
If this is indication of the vaue of her clothing, then the RNC should definitely begin auctioning off her clothes for charity, since charities are really hurting in this economy, and it would be a wonderful cause-marketing for Palin as well.
No word if the ruby colored faux-alligator shoes can control flying monkeys, or what the buyer, whose name was not revealed plans to do with them.
