There's a big celebrity auction over the next two days in Los Angeles. Entertainer and all-around diva Cher is selling furniture, personal items and some of her outrageous costumes from The Sonny and Cher Show of the 1970s.

Cher is reportedly refurbishing her Gothic-style Malibu home and is emptying her closets of gowns and shoes. Also on the block are dozens of heavy crucifixes, wrought-iron furniture and paintings.

Day to Day senior producer Steve Proffitt attended a preview of the auction with Americana expert Charles Phoenix.
