Going fast: Anne Rice's Ebay auction

Annerice_madonnachild Anne Rice, author of "Interview with the Vampire" and its sequels and, most recently, the 2010 novel "Of Love and Evil," is auctioning personal items on Ebay in a kind of online yard sale.
The auction, which went online Tuesday night, includes items from Rice's wardrobe -- think black skirts -- as well as jewelry, a few books, some furniture and some religious icons.
Most of the listed items have a minimum bid but also have Ebay's "buy it now" feature; by Wednesday morning, most of the jewelry and some lovely French-influenced chairs, which had been listed for around $300, were already gone
