A nine drawer desk made of yew wood which is one of the items on sale has been one of the main attractions of the event. The authorities have claimed that the desk which was found at the penthouse of the Wall Street financer was used by him to run his multi-billion dollar ponzi scheme. One insider revealed that Bernie Madoff led a highly luxurious life and had some opulent fetishes that was evident in his collection of shoes. Bernie Madoff collected hundreds of shoes and most of them were found totally new and unworn by the scamster. Some of the reports indicate that there were more than 250 pairs of unworn shoes found in his residence. He also collected Rolex and Patek Philippe watches, all of which go on sale this Saturday. The 72 year old is presently serving 150 years in prison for swindling more than 3000 people with his ponzi-scheme with which he made billions.
