The Strategist is uniquely good at getting famous people to talk about the mundane things they buy over and over again: Rick Ross loves to floss; Michael Imperioli of The Sopranos is really into Buddhist stuff; and Agnès B. keeps Russian vodka around the house. You get the idea. This month, in partnership with eBay, they’ve decided to host an auction that turns this premise around. The Strategist editors went back to some of their favorite celebrity shoppers to ask them about the things they can live without, and, more specifically, what they’d be willing to sell at auction for charity, with all proceeds going to the NAACP Legal Defense and Educational Fund (eBay is receiving and donating all proceeds and matching every dollar the auction earns). They’ve amassed a special collection, from a Betsey Johnson wedding dress to Pepa’s “Push It”–themed snowboard. Check out all of the lots you can bid on in the What I Can Live Without auction here. Hurry, it ends on August 19.
