Item: Used. Time left: Five days. Current price: $29,000 and climbing. Of course, we're talking about that hat—the Philip Treacy creation (which usually retails for $3,300) that topped Princess Bea's head at the Royal Wedding and captured to world's attention. And now the world is bidding to own the fascinator in an auction to benefit UNICEF and Children in Crisis. Bidders must be preapproved by the seller (Bea herself?), so we wonder if any museums are in the running to snag this piece of history. —Phillip B. Crook
