In honor of the publication of Meg Cabot's final Princess book, the NY Public Library is holding a Tiara auction. Authors - illustrators and other famous people (Bobbie Brown, Vera Wang, Julie Andrews are just a few) have designed tiaras for the occasion. It looks like the bidding starts at $150 and you have until January 31st to bid. Betsy Bird also seems to be excited about the tiaras in her Library - maybe SHE will get lucky enough to snag one for her department!
I personally want one of the Eloise tiaras done by Hilary Knight, but at $150 a pop, I don't think I will be getting one - ah but how cool would it be to have a little Eloise watching out over my media center.
