Oh, yeah. There's an auction going on in Colorado, at the Fords' Beaver Creek residence:

The lots are an eclectic mix. Some scream presidential, such as a crystal golf invitational decanter with Ford's signature. Others look like your parents' interior decorating tastes circa 1975 - squatty lamps and crochet knickknacks.

Still, they all belonged to the Fords, and that was exciting enough for those picking through the items.

Bill Binzer had his eye on a felt cowboy hat, complete with feather trim. He thought it was worthy of a bid.

All proceeds go to three local charities.
