Harry Potter and wedding cake
I’m not really supposed to link to the websites of auction houses (because they are rivals) but I have to show you this page.
Item 1 – a super rare first edition of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone that looks like it’s been chewed by a dog and shoved down the back of a sofa for the past 11 years.
Item 2 – a piece of Charles and Diana’s wedding cake from 1981.
I know someone will buy the Harry Potter but what lunatic will want the wedding cake? Someone who likes to host dinner parties and then say ‘Hey, you’ll never guess what unique piece of Charles and Di memorabilia I’ve got.’
