Fans of celebrities and their leg wear have a unique opportunity ahead of them, when a museum puts 26 items including socks and tights
under the hammer.
Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum received the garments as a donation last year, BBC News reports, and is now going to auction them off to the public to raise cash.
Items include a pair of leopard-print tights worn by Bond girl Gemma Arterton and socks
that once belonged to Tim Henman, Michael Winner, Maureen Lipman, Richard Wilson and Marti Pellow.
Audrey Winkler, trustee of the museum, gathered the collection after spending a year writing to celebrities.
"The money will help some of our activities during the year but we are mindful that in the current financial climate an independent museum like ours needs some reserves," she said.
The Ruddington Framework Knitters Museum also sells Choc Sock Lollipops - unique hosiery
treats created by local chocolatiers.
