Couple Finds Treasure Trove of Aretha Franklin Memorabilia in Abandoned Storage Lockers

Jill Pendergast and Alfred Parham purchased the contents of a couple of abandoned storage lockers for pennies on the dollar -- but little did they know the lockers contained dozens of iconic clothing that (once?) belonged to Aretha Franklin. With dollar signs in their eyes, the couple plans to auction off the items on Monday on eBay -- that's if Aretha's lawyers don't swoop down on them first. (Sidebar: These articles of clothing could be items Aretha claimed were destroyed when a fire burned down her $800,000 home in Bloomfield Hills in October 2002. In which case, Aretha could be facing insurance fraud. Oh, no!)

UPDATE: Here's the eBay link with the items for sale. Happy bidding!
