Film costumes are being despatched to all parts of the globe this week as the ebay Jane Austen costume winners celebrate their good fortune. This highly unusual and immensely entertaining auction ended on Sunday.
Those of you who didn’t get involved are probably kicking yourself as there were some undoubted bargains to be had. Perhaps the pick of the bunch being being ‘Ann Elliot’s’ green dress as worn by Sally Hawkins in Persuasion which went for just £127! That’s under $200.
You can find out the final selling prices, where in the world the items would end up and how many people were involved in the bidding, along with some nice pics of the items themselves by following this link
I wonder how many of these costumes will feature in this year’s Jane Austen Festival in Bath.
