Dolly Parton Auctions Off Her Bedroom
You could find yourself sleeping in Dolly’s bed, if you’re the highest bidder in an online auction at eBay.
“I first offered up my bed and lots of folks kept asking, ‘Got anything else?’,” says Dolly. “Since it’s for such a good cause, the Dr. Thomas Foundation, that’s so near and dear to my heart, I started digging through stuff and thought, ‘Why not just auction off the whole bedroom suite?'”
Check out Dolly’s auction here.

Since Dollywood opened in 1986, the legendary performer had kept a personal apartment upstairs above what is now Apple Jack’s restaurant. After the close of Dollywood’s 2010 season, the space was renovated and is now executive office space. While Dolly herself isn’t included in the auction, the winning bidder will have the opportunity to design their bedroom the same way the living legend decorated her Dollywood apartment.
