Bernard Madoff Auction: Round II

If you've ever dreamed of working out on Bernard L. Madoff's treadmill or sleeping in the bed where he once slept, you may be in luck.

Saturday, the U.S. Marshals office holds "Madoff II," an auction of personal items seized from the infamous Ponzi schemer's Fifth Avenue apartment and Montauk beach house.

The U.S. Marshals office held a media preview of Saturday's auction in Brooklyn, where more than 400 pieces of Madoff history were on display.

Among the items to be auctioned off? Bernie's embroidered Italian slippers, Ruth Madoff's 10 carat diamond engagement ring, and the Madoffs' extensive shoe collection.

Also available: a canopy bed (mattress not included), a leather elephant, Ruth Madoff's golf clubs and Bernie Madoff's boxers, size 40.

The auction is expected to bring in about 1.5 millions dollars, all of which will go toward the restitution of Madoff's victims.
