Blink-182 bassist and vocalist Mark Hoppus and his wife Skye are auctioning off many of the contents of their Beverly Hills home for a good cause, a children’s charity.
The couple is in the process of remodeling their home and the idea behind the auction is to sell off items that won’t fit their new design. The auction is being handled by the online site Everything But The House. Proceeds from the sale will benefit Children’s Hospital Los Angeles.
“I’ve always decorated with pieces we’ve loved. It’s less about making the room a perfect space, and more about having cool, personal pieces that carry a story or meaning,” Skye Hoppus said in a statement on the auction’s web site.
Items up for sale include light fixtures, dresses, chairs, diningware, vases, skull-shaped card holders an autographed Blink-182 album and a custom designed “Hi My Name Is Mark” skateboard deck. Fans and collectors can check out the auction here at the EBTH site.
In slightly more amusing Mark Hoppus news, the bassist recently tweeted about being blown off by some young fans.
“Twice today I saw people wearing blink-182 t-shirts and said ‘hey cool shirt!’ and got looked at like ‘yeah whatever you old space garbage!'” he remarked in a July 20 tweet.
“the first dude glanced at me confusedly, looked down at his shirt, and goes “oh yeah. just saw them in concert last night” and walked away,” he continued. “Literally in the matter of 30 minutes. Two different people. Both like ‘Yeah. blink-182. What about it?'”
Blink-182 is currently on tour and will be playing Lewiston, New York on July 31.
